Nicole Kidman and Angela Bishop reminisce about BMX Bandits

‘I can’t believe it’s been 38 years!’ Nicole Kidman and Angela Bishop reminisce about working together on ’80s classic BMX Bandits

It’s been 38 years since BMX Bandits introduced the world to Nicole Kidman.

And the 54-year-old actress reminisced about the experience of making the classic Aussie film during an interview with Studio 10 on Thursday.

Entertainment reporter Angela Bishop had actually featured as an extra in one scene from the movie.

‘I was the third extra on the left at the Waterworks,’ Angela revealed, while showing a scene from the movie.

In it, a very young Angela could indeed be seen in the background.

‘Still very important,’ joked Nicole of her role. ‘Wouldn’t have worked without you.’

For her Studio 10 interview, Nicole sported her natural curls, much like those she had in the 1983 kids’ classic.

The interview comes after Nicole celebrated Logan Martin’s historic win at the Tokyo Olympics earlier this month.

In a post on Instagram, the Big Little Lies actress paid tribute to the BMX rider, sharing a photo of herself in a vintage T-shirt from BMX Bandits.

‘Congratulations from this BMX Bandit to @LoganMartinBMX for winning the first ever Olympic Gold Medal for #FreestyleBMX!’ she captioned the post.

Nicole displayed a thumbs-up sign while wearing a white T-shirt with the BMX Bandits artwork printed on the front.

Despite tagging Logan in the post, the Olympian is yet to respond to his famous fan.

Nicole made her film debut in BMX Bandits when she was just 16, before going on to find global fame in Hollywood.

The film tells the story of a group of teens who, in addition to performing tricks on their BMX bikes, find themselves embroiled with a gang of criminals.
