Actor Profiles > Imogen Bailey
Played: Nicola West
Imogen was born on the 7th July 1977 in Canberra, Australia.
Perhaps best known for her modelling, Imogen has regularly appeared in men’s magazines such as FHM and Ralph since 2000. Ralph magazine readers voted her Australia’s sexiest model in 2001 and she’s also been voted in the top 10 sexiest women in the world by FHM. At only 5’1”, Imogen’s petite figure is unusual in the modelling world.
Over the years Imogen has appeared in countless numbers of TV commercials. She’s also been featured heavily on magazine covers worldwide and has even posed nude for the world famous Playboy magazine. All of this success makes her one of the top models not just in Australia, but in the world.
Imogen has also appeared on numerous reality TV programs including Popstars, Skating on Thin Ice, Celebrity Survivor and Celebrity Big Brother. Bailey finished 3rd on Celebrity Survivor and her appearance on Celebrity Big Brother in 2002 strengthened her fan base in Australia, despite being evicted from the house after only 10 days. Carla Bonner (Steph Scully) also appeared alongside Bailey in the Celebrity Big Brother house as a ‘special guest’.
In 2003, Imogen tried her hand at singing. Her vocals were used on the track If U Want Me by dance musician Michael Woods. The song was a big hit in many nightclubs around the world, but failed to make any impression on the charts.
Imogen is a passionate campaigner for Animal Rights and has taken part in several PETA advertisements. Most recently, Imogen took part in the Human Battery Cage, where she was caged in a make-shift hen enclosure to raise awareness about the cramped conditions caged birds are subjected too. Imogen has also just launched her very own charity, which focuses on drawing attention to animal cruelty.
In January 2008 Imogen joined the cast of Neighbours, playing Miranda Parker’s sexy younger sister, Nicola. Although Imogen had little acting experience before joining Neighbours, she did have a brief part on Home & Away in 1998 and has also appeared in several minor film roles.
