Nicola later attended the Professional Children's School, where she honed her acting skills with Nat Wolff, star of "Ashby" and "Paper Towns."

In an interview with People magazine, Shyamalan said he couldn't imagine the film without Nicola Peltz: "I've only said that once in my career – after meeting Haley Joel Osment for 'The Sixth Sense.'" However, not everyone shared his enthusiasm for casting a white blonde actress as Katara, who is originally an Inuit character.

In 2013, Nicola landed the lead role in the first season of the thriller series "Bates Motel," based on Alfred Hitchcock's legendary 1960 film "Psycho." She also appeared in a few episodes of the second and third seasons. Her co-stars included Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore, Olivia Cooke, and others.

Due to Nicola wearing a Valentino dress at the wedding instead of one made by Victoria Beckham, rumors of a feud between the mother-in-law and daughter-in-law arose. However, both later dispelled these rumors, explaining that Victoria's atelier simply didn't finish the dress on time.

Nicola Peltz Now

In 2021, Nicola Peltz decided to try her hand at directing. Her debut film "Lola" was released in February 2024. It is a drama about a 19-year-old girl trying to rescue her younger brother, Arlo (Luke David Blumm), from a toxic family in the suburban setting of early 2000s Los Angeles.

Nicola not only played the lead role but also wrote the script. She was inspired to create Arlo by her godson.
...The plot is very dramatic, so I wanted the visuals to be its complete opposite. I aimed for it to look feminine, light, and like how little Arlo sees the world.
Brooklyn Beckham played a cameo role in "Lola," but Nicola admitted they had to cut his scene: "He had one line, 'Hi!', but he said it with a British accent while looking directly at the camera. I thought, 'Oh my God... We need to move on.' But I'm very grateful for his support on set. Without him, I couldn't have done anything."
