Once upon a time there was a little girl with a dream. She wanted to be a Singer AND an Actress, but her life was very different then, she had a terrible lisp and was shy in coming forward. Many years later she innocently did a photo shoot in Central London so that she would have some special pictures to look back on.
Lara felt so at home in front of a camera that she was encouraged to take it seriously and become a model by the Studio Director. She soon won a contract with a model agency and built up a library of fantastic characters and memories.
However, Lara’s first love of acting still remained, it took her back to school, and she started an incredible new journey of self discovery. Lara professionally trained in Theatre in the UK, in Film Acting in New York, and has attended specialist acting classes and had one-to-one voice coaching in New York.
After appearing in Theatre and Films she decided to switch her attention to her other love, music, and to date she has made 5 albums. There may not be enough hours in the day to act and sing, but Lara loves both and will be chasing suitable acting opportunities again, and welcomes any interest from casting directors and agents.
“I have been an actress or performer most of my life, whether than be as a musician, songwriter, model, student of the arts, role playing as a 9 to 5 office executive, or just as a regular girl trying to stand up for herself and have a voice. I never want to stop learning and growing as a person because that’s all we have, one life to be brave in and live our dreams. I left my faint-heart in a lonely corner in a fight or flight one day. I chose to survive, to duck, dive and never compromise….. so let the next show begin”.
