Nichelle Nichols net worth: Nichelle Nichols is an American actress and singer with an estimated net worth of $8 million dollars. Born in Robbins, Illinois, Nichelle Nichols began her professional career in the theater. She first gained attention appearing in the musical, "Kicks & Co.". Her performance attracted the attention of Hugh Hefner, who invited her to perform as a singer at his Chicago Playboy Club. She went on to appear in productions of "Porgy and Bess", "Carmen Jones", and "The Roar of the Greasepaint - the Smell of the Crowd" in both New York and Los Angeles. In addition to her work in musicals, she toured extensively as a singer with Duke Ellington and Lionel Hampton. She began her professional on-camera career with a role in the film version of "Porgy & Bess", and was then cast in "The Lieutenant", Gene Roddenberry's short-lived military series. In 1966, she was cast in the role that would bring her lasting fame, as Lieutenant Uhura in "Star Trek".
Nichelle Nichols (born Grace Dell Nichols; December 28, 1932) is an American actress, singer and voice artist. She sang with Duke Ellington and Lionel Hampton before turning to acting. Her most famous role is that of communications officer Lieutenant Uhura aboard the USS Enterprise in the popular Star Trek television series, as well as the succeeding motion pictures, where her character was eventually promoted in Starfleet to the rank of commander. Her Star Trek character was groundbreaking in U.S society at the time, and civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. personally praised her work on the show and asked her to remain when she was considering leaving the series.
Nichols was born in Robbins, Illinois, near Chicago, to Samuel Earl Nichols, a factory worker who was both the town mayor of Robbins and its chief magistrate, and his wife Lishia (Parks) Nichols. Later, the family moved into an elegant apartment in Chicago.
She studied in Chicago as well as New York and Los Angeles. Her break came in an appearance in Kicks and Co., Oscar Brown, Jr.'s highly touted, but ill-fated musical. In the thinly veiled satire of Playboy magazine, she played Hazel Sharpe, a voluptuous campus queen who was being tempted by the devil and Orgy Magazine to become "Orgy Maiden of the Month." Although the play closed after its brief try-out in Chicago, in an ironic twist, she attracted the attention of Hugh Hefner, the publisher of Playboy, who was so impressed with her appearance that he booked her immediately at his Chicago Playboy Club. While still in Chicago, she performed at the "Blue Angel", and in New York, Nichols appeared at that city's "Blue Angel" as a dancer and singer.[citation needed] She also appeared in the role of Carmen for a Chicago stock company production of Carmen Jones and performed in a New York production of Porgy and Bess. Between acting and singing engagements, Nichols did occasional modeling work.
In January 1967, Nichols also was featured on the
