Nichole O’ConnorPosted in Pics on April 21st, 2011 by Jody
From her website bio:
“Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Nichole Bloom O’Connor made the transition to Los Angeles at 14 and is now a soon-to-be graduate from the University of Southern California where she studies theater and visual arts. As an actress she may be recognizable from her commercial work, and now Nichole will soon made her feature film debut in Project X, a new comedy directed by Nima Nourizadeh and produced by Todd Phillips.”
You might recognize her as Sarah from the recent “Magic Jingle Bob Barker” State Farm commercial. My favorite part of the ad is Nichole’s goofy laugh at the 18 second mark. Check it out:
She previously starred in a couple of 2007 McDonald’s commercials and a 2008 Honda Civic commercial. I’ve attached those to the end of this post (courtesy of YouTube user madcowe).
Note: I have no confirmation that she is half-Asian (other than my hapa-dar saying so), but based on her name and her look, my best guess is that she is Korean and Irish. Hopefully someone out there can confirm or correct this for me. (UPDATE: A commenter on this post has confirmed that Nichole is actually half Japanese and half Irish.)
Pictures and video after the jump.
