Nicole Chamoun is an Australian-born actress who constantly gives us complicated and deeply moving portrayals of the characters she plays. These performances continue to resonate, partly due to the unflinching brave choices Chamoun makes and the humanity she imbues into each and every role. It’s a rare ability, but Nicole Chamoun has this in spades, and has been acknowledged for her efforts with a AACTA nomination and Logie nomination for her work on the critically acclaimed series Safe Harbour. Nicole Chamoun was recently nominated for her second Logie for her trailblazing performance in On The Ropes, notable as it is Nicole’s second consecutive year.
In this interview, Nicole Chamoun discusses with Robert Rabiah her journey, what she’s endeavoured to bring to some of her roles, the process involved, and how she is using her new-found position in the Australian film and television industry to advocate for a much needed increase in female presence, perspective and opportunities in the industry she loves.
