Inquisitive, idealistic, passionate, determined
Always curious and open-minded, the irrepressible Nikki can be impetuous, but when she's up against it she's capable of showing her mettle. Since her arrival, she's grown into a skilled and confident pathologist - a force to be reckoned with. She’s also an expert in anthropology.
Brought up in South Africa, Nikki finished her education in England where she excelled, particularly in science. Her South African mother died when she was a teenager, and after her father passed away last year Nikki reached the turning point of being nobody’s child. Nikki joined the team in a distinctly unorthodox manner; gate-crashing Leo's mortuary to use the facial reconstruction software and never left.
She recently appeared in psychological thriller Suspension of Disbelief directed by Mike Figgis and also starred in television crime series The Falcón based on Robert Wilson’s detective novels.
