Nicola Charles Wikipedia
Nicola Charles is a British-Australian actress, primarily 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 adverts, having been chosen to promote the soft drink, Sprite. She continued in adverts and modelling work for several years until moving to Australia in the mid 1990s with then boyfriend, Scott Michaelson. It was there 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. She played Sarah Beaumont on the show for almost three years, from 1996 to 1999. Her profile soared at this point in her career. In the United Kingdom, she was included 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. 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. Until 2010, Charles was also producer at Marathon Pictures, a film company co-founded with her ex-husband.
Charles married kickboxing champion Sean Cochrane in March 1993. The relationship soon broke up. On 18 August 2003, Charles married actor Jason Barry. The couple split in 2008. On 1 June 2012, Charles married DJ Mark Tabberner in Caulfield. Charles and Tabberner have a son called Archie.
After relocating to Los Angeles, Charles returned to Melbourne in early 2012.
