“ I got patted on the knee in a very condescending way and I was told you can always leak pictures of yourself after closing the show to boost your image, ” she said.
‘Traditionally, nude photos have been leaked online. This is the same producer from Neighbors who said to me, “Would you like me to buy you a set of t * ts?”
‘I said no thanks, I plan to breastfeed. He said, “It’s fine, I’ve done it for all the other girls,” and I said, “Really, I’m fine, thank you.” ‘

Nicola said all this took place in the late 1990s, describing it as “different times.”
She said she called her name one day when she was in the green room and said she was terrified that she was in trouble.
“But it was just the general stuff, offering a set of breasts, telling me to behave, what to wear,” she added.

Although she declined to name the producer, explaining that he has passed away since his death, Nicola said he would use money as an incentive for her to do certain things.
‘He would say some nice things to me about how I looked, my body, the things I said, the direction my career could take, dangle things like money for me and said this is how much you could make,’ she explained.
Nicola said the show’s culture seems to have changed for the better since then, praising the series for incorporating minority and gay storylines.
