Owner

I'm Tammy Nichols, the owner and founder of That's a Wrap. I grew up in the Hattiesburg area in the ’70s and ’80s . From about the age of 4 years old, I  wanted to pursue television and film acting. However, during those years that  wasn’t possible in Hattiesburg. So, when I became 18 years old I saved up $800 from working at Conestoga Steak House and drove to Los Angeles to pursue a career in television and film acting. I aggressively started learning the business in Hollywood by taking acting classes at Expressions Unlimited with former actress and coach to the stars, Bobbie Shaw Chance. I studied acting under Chance who has worked with A-list celebrities and Oscar Award-winning actors. I also attended a variety of workshops at CBS Studios in Studio City learning the business side of the industry. While at CBS Studios, I attended acting classes for many years. Fortunately, I had the opportunity to work on the set of many network shows and movies. I was a member of the Screen Actors Guild (the actor's labor union) for over ten years. Privilege Talent Agency, who has represented actors for 40 years, is where I found representation. While in Los Angeles, I attended California State University, Northridge (CSUN) where I studied Radio, Television, and Film.  Due to my father's failing health, it was necessary for me to moved back to MS. In 2001, I received my Bachelor's Degree in Radio, Television, and Film from The University of Southern Mississippi. In 2007, I was unexpectedly thrust back into the acting industry here in the southeast market due to my daughter's interest in acting. Since 2007, I've been active in the southeast market learning all the continuing changes and innovations that have taken place over the years in the industry. Since opening That's a Wrap over eight years ago, I've continued my education by attending siminars and workshops in the Los Angeles area.  Reading literature from pioneers such as Konstantin Stanislavski, Michael Chekhov, Lee Strasberg, Stella Adler, Sanford Meisner, and Uta Hagen is something I enjoy doing during my free time. In classes at TAW, I stick to methods and techniques from each of these trailblazers. I enjoy doing whatever I can to help TAW students move forward with their goals and ambitions. Something that I guarantee is that you will not be guided wrong.
