Who is Nicole Eggert?
Nicole Elizabeth Eggert was born in Glendale, California USA, on 13 January 1972 – her zodiac sign is Capricorn, and she holds American nationality. She’s an actress with more than 70 credits to her name, while she’s perhaps still known best for her portrayal of Jamie Powell, one of the lead characters in the family comedy series “Charles in Charge”. It was created by Barbara Weisberg and Michael Jacobs, also starred Scott Baio and Willie Aames, and follows college student Charles who’s a live-in housekeeper for the Powell family, and is struggling to balance working, studying and spending time with his friends; the series aired from 1984 to 1990, and won two of the 15 awards for which it was nominated.
Nicole hasn’t appeared in any movies or TV series since 2019, and though it’s widely believed that she’s retired from acting, Nicole hasn’t confirmed this.
Early life and education
Nicole was raised in Glendale alongside her sister April Eggert, by their father Rolf Eggert who was an executive at a canning company, and their mother Gina Duncan who was a talent agent.
Nicole was somewhat thrown into the modelling industry at a very early age – she was five when she became Miss Universe in the petite category, and was noticed by an acting scout, who persuaded Nicole’s parents to let her be cast in a commercial for the shampoo Johnson’s Baby.
She was only seven years old when she made her debut film appearance, playing Mary Beth Denton #2 in the 1979 biographical war drama “When Hell Was in Session”, directed by Paul Krasny, and which starred Hal Holbrook, Eva Marie Saint and Mako. It follows US Navy Commander Jeremiah Denton who’s been shot down while flying over North Vietnam, and is now being held captive by the enemy; the movie won one of the four awards for which it was nominated, including a Primetime Emmy nomination.
Nicole then continued acting all through her entire education. She studied at a local high school, and was interested in numerous activities during her four years there, including playing volleyball, and dancing. She matriculated in 1990, and because she hasn’t spoken of her further education, it’s widely believed that Nicole hasn’t attended college.

Nicole played Young Debby in the 1981 drama “Rich and Famous”, directed by George Cukor, and which starred Jacqueline Bisset, Candice Bergen and David Selby. It follows Liz and Merry who became best friends while attending the same college, while Liz’s today a famous author, and Merry a housewife.
