The singer-and-actress made her big screen debut as antagonist Lily Poison in the sci-fi movie and she found it ''inspiring'' to tune into ''heavier music'' to portray the villain.
She told BANG Showbiz: ''I listened to my heavier music and I listened to Led Zeppelin and I kind of got in that frame of mind because music is what inspires me most.
''I worked with my acting coach a lot and she told me about lots of crazy things to think about while I was in character, but I better not tell you what she said.''
Nicole, 33, is hoping the movie will kick-start her acting career, but she found it ''fricking scary'' having the camera focused on her while she was shooting the film.
She added: ''It's fricking scary being on a film set, it's much easier to perform in front of a live audience because you feel all that energy. But when you just have a camera on you everything is focusing on you.
''I grew up doing theatre and working a lot on stage and this is the first time being in front of the big screen so hopefully it's the first of many.''
She explained: ''I didn't have any scenes with Will but he's a close friend and he is one of the most brilliant people that I know, he's very inspiring to be around. I worked a lot with Jemaine Clement and he's unbelievable.''
