About Rachel Nichols known as Tamara in Conan The Barbarian

Rachel Nichols

Rachel Nichols plays Tamara in Conan The Barbarian

American model turned actress Rachel Emily Nichols was born on January 8th 1980 in Augusta, Maine. She had a happy childhood enjoying time outdoors, especially in the water, practicing her favourite sports windsurfing and sailing. She confesses growing up she was a dorky and shy, "skinny, flat-chested girl with long arms”. But that turned around by the time she started university. Even today Nichols insists on the importance of education, making remarks such as "brain transplant doesn't exist yet". However, it was during her univerisity years that she started off her modeling carrer, an opportunity she credits to being in the right place at the right time. Her life got quite hectic as she quicky became an international supermodel, campaigning for Guess?, Abercrombie & Fitch, L'Oreal, and Nicole Miller. Photo shoots often made her fly to Europe and accross the United States while she was studying economics and psychology at New York's Columbia University, and throwing in some drama classes aswell. Finally she made a good balance and graduated with a double major in math and economics.

Rachel Nichols Career

Eventually in 2000 her modeling career helped her land her first move and progress into an acting carrer, appearing as a model in a bar in Winona Ryder and Richard Gere's movie "Autumn in New York". Two years later she formally made her first audition and got the part of Alexa in an episode of HBO's Sex and The City, a sexy hostess who gets involved in a threesome with Samantha (Kim Cattrall) and boyfriend. The following year she got a supporting role in the comedy "Dumb and Dumberer" and since then her acting career has just been going up. In 2004 she had a couple movie projects and was guest star in two episodes of the TV series “Line of Fire”, and most recently parts in two 2005 horror films "The Amityville Horror" and "The Woods”, and the comedy “Mr. Dramatic”. This summer she also stared in FOX’s “The Inside”. The show won’t have a second season but it’s not something to worry Rachel right now since she has landed the part of Rachel Gibson in the fifth season of the hit tv show “Alias”. Rachel will be joining the cast as a deadly black-ops agent, and rumour has it she might assume the lead role in the sixth season.
