Nicola Charles is a BritishAustralian actress, known for her role as Sarah Beaumont in Australian soap opera Neighbours.


Charles trained as an actress and dancer at the Gemini Drama School and started her career in British Television commercials, having been chosen as the face to launch Coca-cola’s new flagship brand Sprite, Sprite. She continues in commercials and modelling work to this day but it wasn’t until moving to Australia in the mid 1990s with then boyfriend, Scott Michaelson that she landed her first acting role. Having turned up at Grundy Television studios auditioning for game show The Price is Right, Charles was noticed by casting director Jan Russ and invited to read for a part on Neighbours.[1] She played Sarah Beaumont a role that was written for her off and on from 1995 to 2016. Her profile soared at this point in her career. In the United Kingdom, she was voted by readers to be the 2nd Sexiest Woman in the World in FHM‘s list of the 100 sexiest women in 1998 and again in 1999.

In 2001, Charles finished recording an album called Listening in Colour which was mixed by prominent sound engineer, Chris Lord-Alge in Los Angeles. However the album was never officially released and Charles was subsequently let go by the UK division of Mushroom Records.

Recent work has included a supporting role in comedy film For Christ’s Sake, which also features Armin Shimerman and W. Morgan Sheppard. Following a permanent move back to Australia with her three children Nicola has reprised her role on Neighbours twice.
