Often described as "the Jessica Rabbit of The WB," curvy redheaded actress Nikki Cox got her start as a dancer before segueing into an acting career most notable for prolific and memorable television work. Cox made her screen debut in the 1988 children's sci-fi film "MAC and Me" in a non-speaking dancing role. Her moves were similarly featured in Michael Jackson's feature-length musical "Moonwalker" that same year, and she added Paula Abdul's "Forever Your Girl" video to her resume in 1989. Cox impressed with a high-profile supporting role in the ABC fact-based TV-movie "The Ryan White Story," playing the AIDS-infected young boy's sister Andrea. This moving and emotionally challenging part came only one year after her acting debut in an episode of the NBC spin-off sitcom "Mama's Family." A guest role on the short-lived ABC series "Living Dolls" came in 1989, followed by a 1990 stint on "Night Court" (NBC) and turns in "Eerie, Indiana" (NBC) and "Murphy Brown" (CBS) in 1991. That same year the actress returned to the big screen with a bit part in the action blockbuster "Terminator 2: Judgment Day."
