Nicole Avery "Nikki" Cox (born June 2, 1978) is an American actress known mostly for her roles on the television series Unhappily Ever After, Las Vegas, and Nikki.


Early life

Cox was born in Los Angeles, California. Nikki's father is Terry Kay Cox and her mother is Meredith A. Cox, who was her personal manager.[1] She has one younger brother, Matthew Cox, who is also an actor.


Cox began her career at the age of four when she appeared as a dancer in several ballet productions and TV specials. She began acting at the age of ten, making appearances in several movies and guest starring on shows such as Baywatch, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Eerie Indiana, and Blossom. She also starred in General Hospital from 1993 to 1995 and had a recurring role on the Saturday morning program California Dreams.

Her appearances on various TV shows led to her first prime-time starring role as Tiffany Malloy on the sitcom Unhappily Ever After, which ran on the WB 1995–1999. Her brother Matthew guest-starred on a handful of episodes, including one where he wore a "Ghostface" mask (the type of mask featured in Scream).

When Unhappily was canceled after taping 100 episodes, Cox went on to portray former prostitute Taylor Clayton on the sitcom The Norm Show and star as Nikki White in Nikki, a sitcom vehicle that lasted for less than two seasons (2000–2002). She starred as Mary Connell on the TV drama Las Vegas from 2003-2007. On May 20 and May 23, 2005, her Las Vegas character crossed over to NBC's soap opera Passions to coincide with the arrival of two new characters introduced on Las Vegas.

She is currently the spokesmodel for online gaming giant, and worked on Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust. She also appeared in Lonely Street, a comedy movie starring Robert Patrick, Jay Mohr (her husband), Ernie Hudson and Lindsay Price.

Personal life

After being romantically linked to Kevin Connolly, who played her brother on Unhappily Ever After, Cox was engaged in 1999 to Bobcat Goldthwait.[2][3]

On December 29, 2006, she married comedian/actor Jay Mohr in Los Angeles.[4] The two met on the set of Las Vegas, where Mohr's character proposed to Cox before they began their relationship.[5] In December 2008, Mohr petitioned a Los Angeles court to allow him to legally add her last name to his, changing his name to Jay Ferguson Cox Mohr.[6] Cox and Mohr welcomed their first child together on May 5, 2011. Their son, Meredith Daniel Mohr weighed in at 6 lbs. 7 oz.[7]
