Danielle Nicolet is an American actress best known for her starring role as Caryn in the television sitcom 3rd Rock from the Sun, from 1996-2001.

Born in a town of 12,000 in Ohio, Nicolet proved at an early age she would not allow her life to be judged on an average scale. Upon entering nursery school, she was tested after demonstrating an unusually high aptitude and subsequently was promoted to the first grade.

That very same year she began gymnastics and again she proved to excel beyond normal expectations.

By the age of 8, Nicolet had attracted the attention of Bela Karoli, renowned gymnastics coach, and was invited to train with him at his facility in Texas for the Olympic trials. As luck would have it, SCATS, a gymnastics school located in Southern California took an interest in her as well.

Nicolet begged her mother to choose the latter, thus allowing her to be near her other interest - acting. Within one year, she was competing in major gymnastic competitions but after a severe injury to her knee and several painful operations, she realized she would have to give up any dream of competing at a National or International level.

Undaunted, Nicolet turned her attention to acting.

Nicolet’s first major role was on the hit series Family Matters. Scheduled to be a guest star role, the episode won the highest ratings in the series history and the producers made the role recurring over the next year.

Hollywood took notice and she was then cast as Samuel L. Jackson's daughter in the screwball comedy National Lampoon's Loaded Weapon 1, Disney's You've Got To Do Something and in the ABC Movie of the Week The Jackson's: An American Dream.

Nicolet was a regular on the NBC hit show 3rd Rock from the Sun, co-starred opposite Melanie Griffith in the thriller Shadow of Doubt and starred opposite CCH Pounder in the political drama Race.

Additionally, Nicolet worked opposite John Savage in Where Truth Lies as a suicidal teenager and as a drug addicted teenaged prostitute in MTV's Runaway.

Nicolet’s past roles also include a starring role in the film A Light in the Forest opposite Eddie Albert, Lindsay Wagner and Carol Lynley. She has also had recurring guest star roles on UPN's Half and Half and the FOX hit Bernie Mac.

She starred as Liz Marsh in the television drama series The Starter Wife, in 2008. She also had a starring role as Stitch, a smart, feisty and tomboyish - not to mention extremely sexy - woman who runs Fair Deal hardware store, in the short-lived sitcom Family Tools, in 2013.
