It seem as though people are taking an interest in Nicole Beharie. The 28 year-old actress is making a name for herself in Hollywood and landing leading roles. Her latest career venture has been on the hot new Fox television series Sleepy Hollow. With only a few episodes into the season, Sleepy Hollow is drawing in a cult following.
Nicole’s first feature film was in the 2008 film American Violet, where she received high praise for her performance. This role came shortly after her graduation from the Juilliard School. During her studies in New York, Nicole was granted the prestigious Robin Williams Scholarship. Her extreme talent and hard work made her the first student to ever get the scholarship by unanimous vote from Juilliard’s drama division faculty.
In 2011, Nicole had a featured role in the movie Shame, which also starred Michael Fassbender. Romance may have sparked on set, as the two began dating during promotion of the film. However their relationship ended in January of this year.
Over the summer, Nicole was seen playing Jackie Robinson’s wife in the movie, 42. The major motion film has launched her into the spotlight. And after Sleepy Hollow’s ten million viewers premiere it seems as though there will only be more eyes watching the actress’s career.
