Nicole Jaffe is a Canadian talent agent and former screen and voice actress. She had a part in the Elvis Presley film The Trouble with Girls (co-starring Frank Welker).

She landed the role of Velma Dinkley in Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, after Gordon Hunt saw her in a stage production of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown as Peppermint Patty.[1]

She performed the role from 1969 to 1974 (ending with The New Scooby-Doo Movies), until she got married and retired from acting, to make a career out of working as a talent agent (with clients including John Travolta, Whitney Houston, Lauryn Hill, and Elijah Wood).[1] She later reprised the role in 2003 for the retro-styled DTVs Scooby-Doo! and the Legend of the Vampire and Scooby-Doo! and the Monster of Mexico.
