Laura was born and bred in Jordanhill in the west end of Glasgow. As a young child she was very creative with a love for drawing,making things and dancing. Through her dance classes she was introduced to the stage, and consequently developed a fascination with performance and all things theatrical.
At school she participated in drama and music as much as she could. At 16 she signed up with a local agent for film and TV extra work where she gained her first insights into the world of television and film production. In her final year of school she undertook a work experience placement with Big Fish Casting which at the time was run by Victoria Beattie and Kahleen crawford. Over the next few years she assisted Des Hamilton and Kahleen crawford on the casting of various different television dramas and feature films.
