Bio

Jasika Nicole is an American actress and illustrator best known for her starring role as lab technician Astrid Farnsworth in the science fiction television series Fringe, from 2008-2013.

Nicole made her feature film debut in the ballroom dancing movie Take The Lead opposite Antonio Banderas.

She went on to appear alongside Natasha Richardson and Molly Shannon in the James Burrows-directed Masters of Manhattan, Law & Order: Criminal Intent and The Return of Jezebel James with Parker Posey and Lauren Ambrose, and made a cameo in the feature film She's Out of My League.

Originally from Birmingham, Alabama, Nicole attended Catawba College, a small private school in North Carolina, where she studied theatre, voice and dance before moving to New York City to pursue a career in the arts.

She starred opposite Bronson Pinchot in the title role of the musical Chasing Nicolette, and has appeared in several stage productions, most notably in the Off-Broadway 1960s musical Cafe a Go Go and the world premiere of Believe in Me...a Bigfoot Musical at the 2004 NYC Fringe Festival.

While working on film sets and in various stage productions, Nicole began drawing and displaying her art work online. Her website has an enthusiastic fan base, and her illustrations have been commissioned and sold worldwide. She has a line of eco-friendly tote bags adorned with her drawings for sale online.

In addition to freelance illustration, Nicole writes and draws an autobiographical comic entitled High Yella Magic, which she is developing into a graphic novel.

She has been open about being a lesbian since she started dating women while she was filming Take the Lead.

Nicole currently divides her time between Vancouver and Brooklyn, New York.
