Laura hasn’t shared any details on why she is no longer a part of the show, and it’s unclear if she ever will.
6. She’s Not Really Into Social Media
Social media is the first place people go when they want to see what their favorite celebrities are up to. However, Laura’s fans won’t have much luck in that regard. Although she does have an Instagram account with more than 24,000 followers, she has only posted 13 times since 2017.
7. She Isn’t Afraid to Push Boundaries with Her Work
One of the coolest things about acting is that it allows people to step outside of themselves and portray people who may be very different from who they are in real life. This is something that Laura enjoys. She told Entertainment Weekly, “There’s something really fun about pushing boundaries as an actor…” As her career continues, she will probably get the chance to push even more boundaries.
8. She Loves Poetry
Laura spends a good portion of her time creating content for other people to enjoy, but she also likes to be on the receiving end. Laura’s Instagram activity makes it clear that she enjoys reading – especially poems. We weren’t able to track down any information on whether she likes to write poetry as well.
9. She Only Has Three TV Credits
Laura’s acting resume is a perfect example of quality over quantity. Sure, she may not have very many acting credits, but she still has an impressive body of work. To date, Laura has only had three TV roles (including The Blacklist). She also has one film credit for a small role in the 2020 movie Worth.
10. She’s a Private Person
Working in the entertainment industry often results in an invasion of privacy that results in celebrities’ personal lives becoming hot topics in blogs. Laura, however, has managed to avoid this so far in her career. She hasn’t shared much information about her personal life. Instead, she has chosen to keep all of the focus on her work as an actress. It’ll be interesting to see if she decides to open up more as her career continues to grow.
