Maeve McGuire (born July 24, 1937) is an American actress, known for her role as "Nicole Travis Drake" on the soap opera The Edge of Night, which she played from 1968 to 1974 and from 1975 to 1977. Nicole originally started off as a schemer but as her popularity increased, her character became one of the show's major heroines in a romance with attorney Adam Drake (Donald May). When she first left the show, the character was presumed dead, but after a year's hiatus, returned. During that time, the character of Adam was brutally murdered and Nicole was paired with handsome new doctor Miles Cavanaugh (Joel Crothers). She was then replaced by actress Jayne Bentzen, almost twenty years her junior.
