||Whats new on the
September 2015 - site closure
After 12 years of running this site, it is unfortunately time to close it down. The site has run longer than most actress fan sites, and has seen Laura and her work through a lot of projects and changes. The site hasn't been updated for a couple of years as it needs a complete redesign and I don't have the knowledge or skills to redesign it for the modern web. Its been an enjoyable project, and I'll continue to be a fan of Laura's and wish her well for her future.
I'll keep this single page active for a while in case anyone wants to take it over (email me if you are).
