American actress, singer, dancer and choreographer, the star of "Walker, Texas Ranger." From a musical family, high-flyer Peeples was a voice major at UCLA before joining the cast of TV's "General Hospital" and later "Fame" as the self-assured singer-dancer Nicole Chapman from fall 1984 to 1987.

After being killed-off in "Fame," she capitalized on her music and dance background to host "Top of the Pops" from September 1987 to March 1988, and the Arsenio Hall music series "The Party Machine" from January to September 1991. Peeples hit the top of the dance charts with "Trouble" in 1988 and earned a handful of Billboard and Cashbox awards. She has also had roles in short-lived dramas including "Nasty Boys" 2/09 to 7/22/1990, "Courthouse," September to November 1995 and "Crisis Center," 2/28- 4/04/1997. Her biggest acting break since "Fame" came when she joined the set of "Walker, Texas Ranger" in May 1999, starring alongside Chuck Norris.

Strongly religious and family-orientated, Nia Peeples lives with her third husband, stuntman and martial artist Lauro Chartrand in Dallas (they married on 11/22/1997), often traveling to her favorite cities, Nice and Vancouver. Peeples has a son, Christopher (c. 1990), from a previous marriage, and a daughter, Sienna-Noelle, with Chartrand born on 11/11/1998. She successfully juggles home life in Texas with a hectic shooting schedule in Los Angeles saying, "Balance is what it¹s really all about. And it¹s tough to get because I'm a doer. To get me to sit still is difficult. There's so much to learn and enjoy." Peeples remains philosophical about the transient nature of fame.
