HER NAME WAS LARA
SHE WAS A SHOWGIRL
Lara Hillier is an actor, writer, director and one of the nation's top experts on Dame Elizabeth Taylor. A Pittsburgh native and graduate of Carnegie Mellon University's School of Drama, Lara took a shine to center ice as a child, singing the national anthem for the Pittsburgh Penguins - not unlike fellow Pittsburgher, Christina Aguilera, natch.
Televisually, Lara can be seen on the Netflix original series, UNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT, and can no longer be seen on the CBS soap opera, AS THE WORLD TURNS. Lara’s short, CRYSTAL CLIFFSIDE FOR WOKE VAMPIRES, which she wrote, directed and starred in, was co-produced by Elizabeth Banks' comedy-based digital, WhoHaha. Lara writes and performs with The Second City Hollywood-based sketch team, OVER EASY. Her writing has also been featured on Glamour.com and Hello Giggles.
A semi-recent New York City expat, Lara is currently based in Los Angeles, where she is in search of a decent bagel. Suggestions welcome.
