Nicole Bessick stars in the Showmax movie No Hiding Here.

Nicole “Action Barbie” Bessick – also known as Chloe on’s Broken Vows, Xenia Samuels on Binnelanders, and Britney on the IGTV drama series, Lockdown Heights – stars in the new Showmax movie, No Hiding Here, which is billed as South Africa’s first gay romcom. It is available now on the streaming service.

“As an ally of the LGBTQI+ community I’m so proud to stand alongside this cause, and bring this incredible piece of art to life! I loved every second. This is a step in the right direction of history,” Nicole says.

The story is set in a small town where drama teacher Sam (Earl Gregory) accidentally screens gay porn during the biggest school event of the year, and he and the guest performer at the event – a closeted celebrity musician (David Viviers) – are forced into hiding from the incensed local community. What follows for the duo is a weekend isolated at the teacher’s house – escaping from their problems, themselves, and a scandalised community demanding answers.
