A successful career as a film and TV actress in Los Angeles was followed by a move to New York where Nellie immersed herself in directing and producing plays. In 1998 she discovered a play called "The Man Who Was Peter Pan" written by fellow 42nd Street WorkShop member, Allan Knee.

With the help of many people (Tracey Becker, Michelle Sy, Joan Scott, Marti Blumenthal) Nellie got it set up at Miramax Films, where Harvey Weinstein saw its potential. Thus, the film "Finding Neverland" was shot in London in 2002, starring Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet.
