Saturday Scream Queen: Nicole de Boer

Canadian actresss Nicole "Nikki" de Boer started acting professionally in the late 1980s while still in her teens. She has been quietly and steadily working ever since, bringing her good looks, charm, and considerable talent to a wide variety of television series, such as "Star Trek: Deep Space 9", the drama "9B", the sci-fi chiller "Deepwater Black", and the horror-tinged mystery "The Dead Zone".

On the movie front, de Boer's career has been mostly horror-centric, with most of her projects being films like "Prom Night IV: Deliver Us From Evil" (a slasher film with Catholic conspiracy overtones from before Dan Brown made Catholic conspiracies kewl) and "Cube" (possibly the first, but certainly among the best, of all "torture porn" films.

More recently, she's headlined a pair of Syfy Channel Original Picture, "Iron Invader" (about a Golem-like statue rampaging through a small farming town) and the forthcoming "Metal Tornado (about a magnetic storm that literally threatens to tear the world apart).
