|Nadine Nicole will play Gwen on The Young and the Restless.|
Nicole is a native of Detroit, Michigan. She lived in the suburbs with her German-Filipino family until she moved to New York City at the age of 18. She studied Art at Fordham University Lincoln Center, Audio Engineering at SAE Institute, and then joined an Indie Rock band called June Fool, as the front singer and bassist. She did commercial modeling, then started booking national commercials and, almost by accident, landed a series regular role of "Van" on Dante's Cove. It was then she fell in love with acting.
She has played opposite Dante Basco and Khalil Kain in the performance driven film, Paradise Broken. She has been on numerous TV shows including CSI: Las Vegas and CSI: New York, The Protector, 90210 and The Bold and The Beautiful (playing Shari on on the May 12, 2009 episode, which featured the debut as Don Diamont as Bill Spencer). She has starred in a few independent films, and appeared in Indie Series Award-nominated web series Workshop.
The character of Gwen is scheduled to debut on December 3.
