Next stop was Trinidad where both her parents had been born and then five years later it was moving day again, this time landing in Canada. It has been reported that her parents hoped she would pursue a career in medicine, but she enrolled at Vancouver’s Playhouse Acting School. She began her career on stage and in the early 1990s formed a production company, Sugar’n’Spice, with director Maxine Bailey and actor Sharon Lewis. Their first production, Sistahs, brought Nicholls-King a nomination for a DORA award in the best female performance category.
