The Hottie Stop interviews Nicky Whelan, star of Inconceivable

07.03.2017by: Eric Walkuski

We're pretty familiar with Nicky Whelan around these parts. Earlier this year, the Australian actress took part in an awesome 9 1/2 Weeks-themed photoshoot for us; you can see some of those pics and the behind-the-scenes video below. If you haven't gotten enough Nicky at that point, she can currently be seen in the psychological thriller INCONCEIVABLE, which co-stars Nicolas Cage and Gina Gershon. In the film, Whelan steals the show as a disturbed woman working as a nanny for a wealthy couple... who have no idea she has actually set her sights on keeping their daughter for herself.

I recently spoke to the lovely Miss Whelan about her role in the film, working with Nic Cage, what drives her love for acting, finding herself on the internet, and more!

Hi, how are you doing today?

I'm good! You weren't there when I did the photoshoot for you guys, were you?

No, I was in New York. But it turned out awesome.

It was really fun, thanks so much for having me. It was really, really cool.

What can you tell me about your character; in your own words, who is Katie?

She's quite a damaged girl. She had quite unfortunate luck when she was donating her eggs in her 20s, the procedure went really badly for her. Now she's become obsessed with the families that actually bought her eggs, she doesn't agree with the way the families are raising her children and she goes nuts. It sounds kind of creepy, but it's a very Hand That Rocks the Cradle-type movie.

She's a little sympathetic even though she does some terrible things.

I think there are moments when you do feel quite sorry for her. It doesn't excuse her behavior, but it shows you where a lot of it comes from.

Despite the heavy subject matter, was it a fun set to be on?

Yeah, it was fun. Between Faye Dunaway and Nic Cage and Gina Gershon and Eva Marie, there were lots of big personalities, and also super talented. Very friendly, caring people. It's always good to be in that vibe. And Faye Dunaway is such a classic, so even just being in her presence was so special. You have to make light when you're off set, and there were a lot of kids running around, so we kept it light for them as well. So it was a really fun set considering.

What has been the coolest set you've ever worked on?

I don't know! I've shot on a lot of different sets in a lot of different cities, it's all about the energy of the people you're working with, you know what I mean?

This isn't the first Nic Cage movie you've been in, you were in Dog Eat Dog and Left Behind. What's he like as a person?

Nic's great, he's a really good guy. Obviously so talented, so clever, you can understand why he is who he is. He's been really kind to me, he brought this project to me originally and it takes one person to believe in you and give you an opportunity. I'm really forever grateful to Nic.

Was acting always your goal? Was there ever another career you might have gone for?

Not really. Everyone goes, "What's your plan B?" I don't have a plan B. I always knew I wanted to do acting and then acting came around. I'm sure I'd be very capable of getting another job, but I've been lucky.

One of the first things you were a part of back in Australia was the TV show Neighbours, which obviously has had a ton of cool people in it over the years. Do you still hear from fans of the show?

Absolutely. My character's name was Pepper and everyone still calls me Pepper for doing that show. I loved her, and they brought me on with no acting experience, really gave me a chance, and it was a great platform. I'm still friends with a lot of the cast. Every show and job I've ever been a part of, I'm grateful for.

What are your favorite aspects of the job? What are the things that, when things get tough, you remind yourself, "This is why I do it."

It often depends on where you're at in your life. You just got to show up and always be aware of your emotions. You're around a lot of people everyday, and I think that's a challenge, showing up and being really professional everyday. It can be a little exhausting, but never to the point where it put me off, I'm very lucky to get to do this, so I'm always aware of that.

It it ever tough living in the spotlight, or knowing some gossip sites might be talking about you?

I don't ever feel like I've been in the spotlight, I don't really have a crazy life where paparazzi are following me around. There's always someone that makes a comment here and there, it just is what it is. There's so much news these days, there's always something fresh within a minute.

Have you ever googled yourself?

Yeah, I have a couple times, I've checked on things. There's always photos where you're like, "Ugh." Honestly, what are you gonna do? We're so overexposed as a society, no one's shocked anymore. I honestly don't spend too much time thinking about that.

What do you do when you're not working?

Well, I recently got married, so I've been spending a lot of time at home. I have a little dog and I'm getting more involved in animal rescue programs. I really enjoy being at home and cooking and just having normality, the normal routine of running errands. I really do love all that stuff.

You're an animal lover?

Yeah, I am. I have a little dog called Yoda. I spend a lot of time with my dog and he has lots of play dates. He has quite an elaborate lifestyle.

Lucky dog! Thanks so much for your time, Nicky, I appreciate it.

My pleasure, thank you.
