Marisol Nichols was born on November 2, 1973 in Chicago, Illinois, and she is the eldest child and has two younger brothers.
Marisol Nichols acting career appears to begin with a guest appearance on the March 28th episode of Due South
, and shortly thereafter gets a boast from landing a starring role on a television show. Unfortunately, that April 1996 comedy show, My Guys
, lasted just two episodes on CBS. Her career continued, though, and immediately after the cancellation of My Guys
, Marisol turned up one month later in an episode of Beverly Hills, 90120
. Other roles of note between starring jobs, was her 1997 turn as Audrey Griswold in Vegas Vacation
, the fourth and final Chevy Chase National Lampoon’s Vacation movie (so far; Christmas Vacation 2 was something of a “spin-off” of the series, following Cousin Eddie), and her two episode role as Kelly on Boy Meets World
. In 2000, Marisol acquired her second starring job, on the three season Showtime series Resurrection Blvd.
. Marisol was Victoria Santiago on this East LA Santiago boxing family series. After the end of Resurrection Blvd
, Marisol guest starred on several shows, like Friends
, and appeared in six episodes of Cold Case
as Elisa before landing her next starring role. In 2005, Marisol played Detective Karen Bettancourt on the short-lived ABC midseason cop series Blind Justice
, partner to Ron Eldard’s blind cop Detective Jim Dunbar. Rebounding from its cancellation (or failure to be picked up for a second season), Marisol immediately found another starring role. Marisol can be currently seen on the ABC drama In Justice
