Alexa Helen Nikolas is an American actress best known for her portrayal of Nicole Bristow in Zoey 101.


Nikolas was born on April 4, 1992, in Chicago, Illinois, to Alexandra Nikolas and a New Zealand native. When she was seven years old, she gained her first acting role in P.U.N.K.S., starring in an uncredited role as Jenna Bygayly. However, Nikolas's most prominent role during her career is that of Nicole Bristow on the Nickelodeon TV series Zoey 101. In 2006, following the conclusion of the show's second season, Nikolas quit the series due to an "uncomfortable working environment" following numerous fights and incidents with her costar, Jamie Lynn Spears. In addition, she appeared on Hidden Hills regularly and also on the 2005 miniseries Revelations. Following her departure from Zoey 101, Nikolas guest-starred on many other TV series, most notably The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, Judging Amy, ER, Without a Trace, Criminal Minds, and Heroes.

Later, Nikolas appeared in a supporting role alongside Vanessa Hudgens in the latter's music video, "Come Back to Me". She then appeared in the films Motocross Kids and Tiptoes. In 2009, she appeared in the remake of Children of the Corn, portraying the role of the love interest of one of the antagonists. She also guest starred on the FOX series Lie to Me. In 2011, she appeared in the film Red State, starring as Jesse. During that same year, Nikolas appeared on Family Guy, providing additional voices for characters. In the spring of 2011, she began filming a comedy-horror zombie film titled Detention Of The Dead, in which she portrays Willow. The film was released on the spring of 2013. Nikolas later received the recurring role of Haley in the TV series The Walking Dead. However, her character was killed off after appearing in a total of three episodes.
