About Nicola Wheeler who plays Nicola Blackstock in Emmerdale

Nicola Wheeler

A Huge Big Thank you to Paul Berridge who has made various profiles and photos availabe to me. They were previously on his Beckindale site (that is no more). The following is one of those profiles - although any info after 2002 has been added.

Nicola Wheeler joined Emmerdale in January 2001 as Nicola Blackstock, the long lost sister of Bernice.

Nicola is no stranger to soap. The actress appeared in Coronation Street in 2000 as Maxine Peacock's troublesome friend Melanie Tindel.
Nicola says "The Emmerdale cast are really welcoming. Everybody warned me how hectic it would be - and it is mad! but I think it's better to be thrown in at the deep end."
The only problem Nicola has faced so far is the fact that she shares a name with her character. People told me that it would make things easier, because we have so many directors coming in, and they always have to learn everybodys names. But they keep apologising for calling me by my character name, not realising it's also my real name! If people ever start shouting out at me in the street, I'm going to turn round, thinking they're my friends.
