Bristol based actor and director. Having recently graduated with her masters degree from RADA, Cara is a motivated, driven and friendly professional, who has a love for the arts and a motivation to create and be a part of new and exciting projects all over the UK (and internationally).

Born and raised in Bristol, UK, Cara first took to the theatre as a young child, before moving to television in 2001, when she appeared as a student in Channel 4’s BAFTA nominated series Teachers.

Shortly after, Cara featured in the BBC’s period docu-dramaThe Sugar Dynasty as Yasmina, and alongside Jeremy Edwards and Martin Trenaman in comedy feature Lost Dogs which premiered at Cannes and saw a cinematic release worldwide.

Cara’s more recent performance experience includes cameo roles in the Cohen Brothers’ Gambit, Nigel Cole’s Made in Dagenham, as a House Maid in Downton Abbey, and as a guest at THE wedding of 2014 in The Muppets 2 Movie.

 

As a part of Cara’s passion for performance, she is also a highly saught after dancer, and appeared as herself for the BBC’s Strictly Dance Fever, before releasing her first instructional belly dance fitness DVD which is available worldwide.

 

Further to this, she is currently providing the voices for the characters of Ursula and Crystal in the animated seriesAttack of the Laundry Monsters, and has recently debuted her first directoral theatre piece The Back Room at The Wolfson-Gielgud Theatre in Bloomsbury, London.

 

Cara holds a masters degree in Text and Performance from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.

 

She can currently be seen in Adrian Osman’s gritty teen drama Until Tomorrow which is set to tour the festival circuit in 2014.
