Holly Jack is a Scottish actress and acting coach. She is best known for her role as Nicole Brodie in the BBC Scotland soap opera, River City, in which she joined as a series regular in October 2010.[2][3] In July 2014, Jack joined the cast of Waterloo Road as a new student, Bonnie Kincaid.[4]


In 2010, Holly Jack was cast in River City as Nicole Brodie. She made her first on-screen appearance on 12 October 2010. ATV described her as "14 going on 40".[5] Speaking of her casting, Jack said, "I think they [her parents] were happier than me when I got the part. My mum was screaming down the phone. I think she nearly had a heart attack."[2] She quit the role in 2014, saying that she had learned all she could from the character.[1] Of her last storyline on the show, she told The Sunday Post that it "left her shattered".[6]

Shortly after she quit River City, she was hired as an acting coach.[7] In 2014, she appeared in Footballers United. On 1 July 2014, it was announced that Jack would be joining the cast of Waterloo Road as a new student at the beginning of the second half of the tenth series in early 2015, which would also be the last series of the show.[4]

Jack returned to River City in 2018 with her character Nicole Brodie. In 2019, Jack played the role of Cinderella in the pantomime production of Cinderella at the Pavilion Theatre in Glasgow. [8]
