  During her time in the business, Laura has amassed a large number of acting credits. Starting with the low budget, critically acclaimed 'Small Faces', made while she was still studying, to blockbusters such as the international success of 'A Knights Tale' where she became widely recognised, Laura has demonstrated versatility in her roles and refuses to be typecast. She has had bit parts in movies ('Girl in Bed' with Leonardo de Caprio in 'Man in the Iron Mask'), through leading roles ('Virtual Sexuality', Coney Island Baby', 'Devils Gate'), and ensemble casts ('Titus', 'He Knew He Was Right'). She can float effortlessly between independent & big budget films, and TV genres from fantasy, costume drama and police shows.
