Nicole Anderson hangs out upside down with her cute little pup, Fendi Fondu, on a lazy day at her home in Georgia.
The 18-year-old JONAS actress is pulling out her years of gymnastics training and taking them to the small screen. Nicole wrote on her MySpace, saying, “This Friday Iâ€™m going to start working on a new ABC Family show called Make It or Break It. Itâ€™s about gymnastics, so I was freaking out when I got the role because I was a competitive gymnast for ten years! Iâ€™m going to be playing an extremely competitive and obnoxiously mean girl named Kelly Parker. Sheâ€™s the reining National champion and a rival to the main characters on the show. Iâ€™ll be appearing in two episodes. And then a day after I wrap on that project, Iâ€™ll be flying to New Orleans!!!”
Make It or Break It also stars Josie Loren (she costarred with Sterling Knight and Zac Efron in 17 Again). Be sure to check back on JJJ for more Make It or Break It (premiering Monday, June 22 @ 9PM ET/PT on ABC Family) soon!

“Sorry Iâ€™ve been MIA for a while. Iâ€™ve been working on a couple of projects that Iâ€™m really excited for you all to see! I have to admit, I was really worried when JONAS wrapped in March. I thought Iâ€™d be sitting around waiting for the show to come back for a second season, and there are only so many quilts a girl can make to keep herself entertained! Haha. But Iâ€™m feeling very blessed. I wasnâ€™t expecting to be this busyâ€¦ and busy in a very, very good way.
“Right now Iâ€™m working on my new movie, Dark Side of Nowhere. Itâ€™s been an amazzzzing experience and a lot of hard work. 12 hour work days, five days a week with auditions, callbacks, and interviews on my Thursday/Friday ‘weekends.’ Itâ€™s a drama/thriller, so as you can expect, itâ€™s very different from things Iâ€™m used to working on… I even get arrested! Lol. It was kind of funny while filming that part because I actually had to get in a cop car and have the car drive off, so pedestrians who didn’t know that we were filming thought that I was actually arrested! The project wraps this Thursday and Iâ€™m kind of sad because Iâ€™ve really enjoyed challenging myself as actor, developing this complex character and working with such a fantastic cast and crew. But at the same time, Iâ€™m looking forward to another character thatâ€™s going to be a lot of fun as well!
“Iâ€™ll be there (in New Orleans) for a week working on Imagination Movers asâ€¦ CINDERELLA. Itâ€™s kind of random considering that the Cinderella we all know and love is Caucasian and blonde, but I wasnâ€™t going to pass up on the opportunity to play one of my all time favorite Disney princesses just because I donâ€™t look like her! Haha. I hope you guys donâ€™t mind. (And there will be a lot of pictures from this trip in the near future.)”
“Lastly, I will be going on Disney Cruise Lines’ Disney Channel Summer at Sea cruise. Right now the dates arenâ€™t confirmed, but I will let you know as soon as possible and I hope to see you there! (There will be a lot of pictures from this trip as well. Heeh.)”
