Nicole Tubiola Exclusive Interview

Nicole TubiolaNicole Tubiola stars as Dani Davis on the hit show Wildfire. With three seasons, the show has proved it has what it takes to stay in the race. We caught up with Nicole to get behind the reins, so to speak, of one of TV’s wildest shows!

THE STAR SCOOP:
What have you been working on lately?

NICOLE TUBIOLA:
Well, for the past two years we’ve been pretty much shooting Wildfire back to back. We just stopped shooting the third season of Wildfire November. It doesn’t really leave much time to do things in between, so Wildfire has been my main priority and just taking it easy.

THE STAR SCOOP:
Can you tell us a little about your character and the overall plot of the show as well?

NICOLE TUBIOLA:
Sure! Wildfire is about horse racing and love, pretty much [laughs]. Love of horseracing, love of boys and girls and neighbors and all that good stuff, and family. I play Dani Davis. Dani Davis is sister to Junior Davis and daughter to Ken Davis. The Davis’ are the rival horse racing family against the Ritters. Kris is the girl who came into the Ritter’s life with Wildfire, the horse, the race horse who brings all this promise, and we’re basically the rival family to them. Dani is an ex love of Max who is a Ritter, and Junior is a love interest to Kris. It’s all very confusing.

THE STAR SCOOP:
Why will fans relate to your character on the show?

NICOLE TUBIOLA:
Dani can be hard sometimes. She’s very outspoken, and she doesn’t seem to be scared of many things. I think the thing fans can relate to, ultimately Dani just wants to be liked. She wants to find love, and she wants to be happy. That’s something that we’re all looking for. Sometimes she does it in a strange way. Ultimately, she’s just looking for happiness.

THE STAR SCOOP:
How have you changed since you’ve been working on this show? What have you drawn from the experience?

NICOLE TUBIOLA:
Wildfire
improved my life in so many ways, changed my life in so many ways. I was looking for a job until Wildfire came, and it’s really given me ability of the past couple of years. Obviously that’s changed a lot there. In terms of, I always try to bring myself to Dani, my feelings on things, to how I’m going to play certain situations. I may not react the way that Dani does, because obviously that’s her, but I try to just bring myself to it as much as I can.

THE STAR SCOOP:
Doing a show like Wildfire, how is that different from working on other projects, having the animals?

NICOLE TUBIOLA:
Well it is different, working with the animals, then, say, on any other show, where you’re just interacting with people because animals are animals and they’re unpredictable and you have to be careful around them and how you shoot and where you set the camera. If the horse doesn’t like something, it’s not going to say, excuse me, could you please not touch me there, you know? It’s gonna get a little testy with you. You just have to use some safety precautions when you work with the animals, but ultimately we have really great wranglers and handlers who take care of us and let us know what’s right and wrong, and we’ve been trained pretty well. It’s a different experience, absolutely, but you know, it’s still the same, too.

THE STAR SCOOP:
Why should people tune into Wildfire?

NICOLE TUBIOLA:
People should tune in to Wildfire because we’re a show that just has a lot of heart, you know? We have characters in it who are flawed, human, and loving, and are ultimately doing things because they think that they’re doing it for the right reasons. I think that people can just relate to the characters on our show, and we have horses. I mean, what’s not to like about horses?

THE STAR SCOOP:
Where is your focus for the future?

NICOLE TUBIOLA:
I just want to do good projects. I think that’s the thing I’ve always kind of been focused on, is just to do things I like personally. I don’t care if it’s movies or TV or any of that, you know? I think that just something that I can relate to and I think is good. When I first read Wildfire, I really loved the script from the moment I read it. I started crying when I read it. I just felt a connection to it. I’m going to hopefully continue on with that, just going with things that my heart feels I need to go with.
