Although the actress’ life is nowhere near as tumultuous as her character’s (thank goodness!), the blonde beauty has suffered her share of physical setbacks over the years, and lived through the accompanying emotional roller-coaster. Growing up in suburban Boston, Noelle always loved old Hollywood musicals. So when she first started out, she dreamed of becoming a triple-threat singer, dancer and actor. She already had dance in the bag (she’s been dancing since the age of four, having been schooled in ballet, jazz, tap, modern and pointe), so her…
