Nicolette Goulet (June 9, 1956 - April 17, 2008) was an Canadian-American soap opera actress.

Goulet got her start in acting on the television series Ryan's Hope with the role of Mary Ryan Fenelli in 1979. She was the fourth actress to portray the character. She also appeared on three other soaps: "Search for Tomorrow" as Kathy Parker Phillips Taper #2 from 1980 until 1982; on "As the World Turns" as Casey Reynolds in 1984, and on "The Guiding Light" as Meredith Reade Bauer from 1987 to 1989.

Goulet was the daughter of the late singer-actor Robert Goulet and his first wife Louise Longmore.

Nicolette Goulet's sultry good looks were not the only features she inherited from her father Robert Goulet; she was also an accomplished actress, and an exciting and expressive singer.

Though born in Toronto, Canada, where she lived until the age of four, Nicolette lists New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Europe as only a few of the places she has called home. Educated in New York at Marymount College, where she starred in several plays, she developed a lasting love for singing and acting. Her first professional break came at age eighteen when she landed the role of Corey in a production of "Barefoot in the Park".

This beautiful and accomplished actress/singer said she was most comfortable on stage or before the cameras. "In either place I feel completely myself."

Discovering that she had a wonderful voice, her father invited her to join his backup singing group on a 'Robert Goulet in Concert' tour which took her worldwide, and concluded with many repeat performances in Las Vegas.

While performing with her father, she garnered tremendous experience working in front of large audiences. She learned her craft well, and honed it into an art.

Television fans got their first glimpse of Goulet when she was cast as Mary Ryan Fenelli in the popular daytime serial, "Ryan's Hope". Immediately after that she was sought out for the role of widow Kathy Phillips Taper on "Search For Tomorrow" and enjoyed this role for more than two years. A brief stint as Casey Preston on "As The World Turns" led to her originating the most successful and challenging role of Dr. Meredith Reade in "Guiding Light".

She starred in two motion pictures, "Whispers of White" and "Calhoun County", but chameleon-like in her ability to switch from television to the stage, Goulet carved out an impressive list of theatrical credits. She earned critical acclaim in her first dramatic role in the off-Broadway play, "Sweet Song of the Trumpets" and was later chosen for her second dramatic role in Lillian Hellman's "Another Part of the Forest". She also starred in the musicals "I Love My Wife" and "Romantic Comedy".

Nicolette headlined "A Festival of Singing Soap Opera Stars", and "Bubbles, A Musical Revue with Stars From The Soaps", a benefit sponsored by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Music was an important part of her life and she frequently performed in many cabarets across the country.

Personal life

Her mother, Louise Longmore Goulet, was an unshakable supporter of Nicolette's extraordinary talent. And although he didn't tell her for many years, she has had her father's blessing since the age of 4, when he snuck into the wings of the New York Majestic Theater to catch her performing for the one person in the otherwise empty houseā€”an attentive and smiling Julie Andrews.

She was married to Conductor/Musician Tim Fowlar; they had two children, Jordan-Gerard and Solange-Louise.

On April 17, 2008, less than six months after her father's death, Goulet died as a result of breast cancer.
