Actress Nicola Peltz, daughter of the billionaire investor, Nelson Peltz and model Claudia Heffner is making a name in her own right, but not as she initially expected, as reported by Shalom Life. Nicola, who grew up in Westchester County, was the only girl among 6 brothers and became “a tomboy.” She dreamed of a career as an ice hockey player. Then, she tried an acting class at her high school and she retired her skates for the stage.

Her mother Claudia objected to Nicola’s getting a manager at the age of 12, but after joining the Manhattan Theater Club, the model mom became supportive. Her first role was in the 2006 Comedy Film “Deck the Halls” followed by the indie “Harold” in 2008. Both films were not successful at the box office or with critics. But the coupe de grace came with Nicola Peltz winning the Worst Supporting Actress at the Golden Raspberry Awards for her role in “The Last Airbender.”

Since then her career has been transformed as the leading lady in the new Transformers franchise and plays Bradly Marin in A&E’s Bates Motel. Concerning the transformers, Peltz said, “Growing up, I was a big transformers fanJust to be able to work with such talented people, Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammar and Jack, and everyone involved. I look up to them all. It’s very exciting to be able to learn from them.”
