growing up a huge ham in front of the camera and doing
some time in theater, Laurie decided to pursue the acting
bug for real.
three years ago I sent off some pictures, got an agent
and immediately started working in commercials,"
says Laurie. A year or so after that, Laurie crossed
over into independent film, and got the opportunity
to work behind the camera as well. "I think this
is a must for actors, to understand every aspect of
your craft. In my opinion we as actors have the easy
job. We show up, makeup and hair, get spoiled by everyone,
deliver lines, and hurry up and wait. If you think
this is bad, spend one day as a crew member. These
women and men bust their asses more than some actors
will ever know!"
Laurie has a carefree, easygoing
personality and dreams of vacationing off the waters
orf Dyer Island in South Africa with a 15ft great
white and a VERY sturdy shark cage.
