The Oscar winner was not originally slated to show off her singing voice over the opening credits of the series debut on Sunday night (October 25, 2020), but then director Susanne Bier approached her with a special request.
“We were meant to release the show in April, then everything (COVID-19 pandemic) happened and we couldn’t get the show finished in time,” Nicole explains. “Susanne called me and said, ‘Would you sing the title credits?’ And I was like, ‘No, of course not. We’re in lockdown, I can’t…’ She sort of… convinced me to do it. I’m really glad she did. At first, I thought I’d never be able to do it, which is pretty much how I approach most things… and then I go in and tackle it.”
The actress, who plays a successful New York-based therapist in the middle of a possible murder investigation in the drama, recorded the Doris Day standard Dream a Little Dream of Me for the show.
It’s not the first time she has showed off her impressive singing skills – Nicole has teamed up with her husband Keith Urban for the occasional track, while she had a hit with Robbie Williams on the tune Something Stupid. She also wowed fans by singing in the 2001 film Moulin Rouge!
