A beautiful, popular, affluent, seventeen-year-old girl who befriends Norman out of kindness, but is ultimately surprised to find herself drawn to him in other, deeper ways.
Nicola Peltz is emerging as a force to be reckoned with on the big screen. Nicola is currently in Vancouver filming the highly anticipated Bates Motel for A&E, based on the Alfred Hitchcock classic Psycho. Bates Motel teams Nicola with Freddie Highmore and Vera Farmiga and will premiere in 2013.
Among her film credits, Nicola was most recently seen starring in M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender playing Katara, a Water Bender, alongside Dev Patel, Jackson Rathbone and Noah Ringer. She recently wrapped Eye of the Hurricane alongside Melanie Lynskey and Campbell Scott which is a compelling family adventure about a small Everglades community struggling to put their lives back together in the wake of a devastating hurricane. In 2012, Peltz completed filming on Affluenza with Steve Guttenberg, Samantha Mathis, and directed by Kevin Asch. Inspired by the novel "The Great Gatsby," the film is set amongst the upper class Long Island suburb of Great Neck in the weeks leading up to the financial meltdown of 2008.
Peltz made her feature film debut in 2006 in Deck the Halls with Danny DeVito, Matthew Broderick and Kristin Chenoweth. A New York native, Nicola starred on stage in 2007 opposite Jeff Daniels and Alison Pill in the Olivier Award-winning production of "Blackbird" at the Manhattan Theatre Club directed by Joe Mantello.
