Lara started working at the BBC in the UK at the age of 19, but worked in many areas of film and television before spending 15 years as an actress & presenter, eventually settling as a writer/director/producer or any such combination of those roles.

After being shortlisted for UK Film Council/Screen East’s Digital Shorts Scheme in 2009, Lara wrote, directed and produced three short films – Hostile, Runner and Three – and then in 2010, she produced Hard Boiled Sweets (2012 Universal/Content), a crime ensemble feature with Ian Hart (Harry Potter, Backbeat), Paul Freeman (Raiders of the Lost Ark, Hot Fuzz), Peter Wight (Babel, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen), written & directed by David L.G. Hughes.

Lara then moved straight on to produce Deviation (2012, Revolver Entertainment), a dark, psychological thriller feature written & directed by J.K. Amalou, starring Danny Dyer (Football Factory, Severance) and Anna Walton (Mutant Chronicles, Hellboy II).

Lara is currently writing her self-penned featurePerfeccion set in Spain, which she hopes will shoot in late 2013/2014 and will be her first feature as Writer/Director.

Lara is the director and producer of How To Be Dead, a web comedy launching in October
