Nicola has received her first BAFTA TV Awards nomination, in the Best Supporting Actress category, for her work as Gillian in Series 2 of Last Tango in Halifax.
The following actresses are also nominated in the same category as Nicola :
Sarah Lancashire is Nicola’s co-star in Last Tango in Halifax. Nicola has described Claire Rushbrook as one of her best friends. Amongst other projects, Claire was in Shiner [Film] and 50 Revolutions [Stage] with Nicola. When Claire was in Collision, a candid photo showing Claire and Nicola was used as a prop – see this Fun Fact for more details.
Nicola doesn’t think she will win and is rooting for Shirley Henderson to win, since she is the only nominee she does not know personally. We hope this is merely pre-awards jitters talking.
