Nicole Fiscella is an American television actress and former model. She is best known for portraying Isabel Coates on The CW's "Gossip Girl."
Nicole Fiscella was born on September 15, 1979 in Rochester, New York. She also has a younger brother named Chaz. Throughout her high school years, she participated in the All-State Jazz Choir with world renowned director and political activist, Jim Augustine, before eventually graduating and attending Tufts University. She eventually graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology before again moving on to the University of Bridgeport where she pursued a Masters in Human Nutrition. This, of course, was much later in life after her modeling and acting had gone into full swing.
It was in 2005 that Nicole first began her modeling career with New York Model Management. Before long, she was gracing the covers of fashion magazines such as Elle and Cosmopolitan, as well as shooting campaigns for companies like Pantene and GAP Body.
As quickly successful as she became in the modeling word, it came as no surprise when she was cast as one of the main friends to lead character Blair Waldorf on The CW's "Gossip Girl" in March 2007. While this wound up being her first and only acting role for the duration of her time on the series from 2007 to 2011, that doesn't mean she didn't keep busy appearing on series such as "Luxury Unveiled" as herself in 2010. She also also starred as the lead in LL Cool J's music video for "Baby" a year prior.
In her spare time, Nicole claims to be obsessed with both blogging and exercising. She also enjoys taking a load off in her Manhattan home while hanging with her two cats Tess and Oli.
