Nicole Avery "Nikki" Cox (born June 2, 1978) is an American actress known mostly     
for her roles on the television series Unhappily Ever After and Las Vegas.           
Cox was born in Los Angeles, California, the daughter of Meredith and Terry Cox,     
who is a personal manager. Cox's career as an entertainer started at the age         
of four, as she appeared as a dancer in several ballet productions and TV

Her appearances on various TV shows would lead to her first prime-time starring

her Las Vegas character crossed over to NBC's cult-favorite soap opera Passions
