NikkieTutorials is a girl of many talents, obviously, she is the queen of showstopping makeup looks, but it seems she also had her sights set on acting.

In fact, Nikkie just revealed that she was very nearly cast in the popular Vampire Diaries.

During a video Q&A with fiancee Dylan she revealed just how close she was to a very different kind of fame.

“I was almost cast as Meredith in The Vampire Diaries,” Nikkie revealed.

She explained that it was her talent as a MUA that got her spotted in the first place.

“That people is the truth. A couple of years ago when I was really young and just did a couple of Vampire Diaries makeup tutorials, the casting agency behind The Vampire Diaries contacted me through email and they were like, ‘Okay girl, we see that you’re a huge fan, we think you could be a perfect fit for Meredith.’”

She filmed an audition tape and they really liked her!

“They basically sent me an entire scene. I had to film it, I had to reenact it. It was basically an audition tape. They loved what I did and they were talking about flying me out to Atlanta, Georgia, where they filmed the show,” she said.

“Basically everything was a go, we were looking at flights, we were looking at it all, and I told my mom, I was like, ‘Mom, I made it, I’m an actress, I’m flying to the US to pursue this career honey.’ And my mom was like, ‘Oh my god! I can’t believe this is happening to my daughter.’”

However, it fell through at the last minute, and Nikkie feels it may have been because of her height.

“Everything was a go until they asked for a last couple of details. They were like, ‘Can we just get your measurements for like the clothing, and can we just get like all this stuff to buy clothes and know how you line up with the actors,’” Nikkie went on. “As soon as I emailed them that I am 6’2″, maybe even 6’3″ at this point, never heard from them again. i’m guessing that my height, because the men on the show were so tiny, I’m guessing that it was the height that was a problem. But, never heard from them again!”

In the end, the role of Dr Meredith Fell went to Torrey DeVitto who appeared in season 3 and 4 of the show.

Speaking of roles that almost went to someone else, Asa Butterfield who plays Otis in Sex Education recently spoke about losing out on the role of Spider-Man to Tom Holland.
