Nicole de Boer, whose last name translated to „The Farmer“ and is a very common surname in the Netherlands, began her acting career as a child when she landed the lead in a school play of The Wizard of Oz. Her parents soon agreed for her to get an agent and she made her television debut soon afterwards. She also worked on numerous TV commercials and theatre productions throughout her childhood.
The Canadian born actress has been busy ever since. We may know her especially for playing Ezri Dax in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, but her most prominent roles also include Joan Leaven in the cult movie Cube and Sarah Bannerman in The Dead Zone, a role she played from 2002 to 2007. Other roles include Beyond Reality, Outer Limits and PSI Factor, as well as a recurring role in the Canadian sketch comedy show The Kids in the Hall.
Stargate Fans may also remember her: She played Dr. Alison Porter in a fifth season episode of Stargate Atlantis. Recently she could be seen in two episodes of the supernatural drama Haven, based on the novel The Colorado Kid by Stephen King.
