Nicky Mondellini (born Nicoletta Edna Mondellini Hammond on July 6, 1966 in Milan, Italy) is an Italian-born Mexican actress and professional ballerina.

Early life[edit]

Mondellini was born to a British mother, Joan Hammond, and an Italian father, Mario Mondellini. She moved to Mexico City with her family when her father was transferred by his employer. She has two sisters.

From early childhood, she was introduced to the arts of acting and dancing by her mother, a professional choreographer. She began her acting career when she was 12 in the musical Sweet Charity, and continued her career in Telenovelas (soap operas) with the Mexican network Televisa, classical theater plays, and movies.

Mondellini decided to move with her family to Houston, Texas in 2005 following the kidnapping of two of her actress friends in Mexico City.

She has been nominated twice for the Premios TVyNovelas as Best Lead Actress. She is fluent in five languages (Spanish, English, Italian, French and German), is a professional ballerina, a voice over talent, and has bachelor's and master's degrees in arts.

Mondellini is married to an American Petroleum engineer, Al Wilson. The couple have three children: Mario, Robert, and Stephanie.
