"I was the youngest one in the audition," Edwards told Soap Opera Digest. "I felt really good about it, but I honestly didn’t expect it. My mom's a B&B fan, so when she found out, she couldn't believe it!"
As for her character, Edwards teases, "I think Nicole is going to bring something pretty cool to the table for everybody. She's Maya's little sister, so they're going to have some similarities but they’ll also have their differences, too. You’ll really get to see that."
Edwards will make her first appearance on The Bold and the Beautiful in January.
