Class of 2020 student, Lara Norton, is heading to the USA this summer to enrol at the Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute in Los Angeles. Lee Strasberg is famous for developing a series of techniques and exercises that became known as ‘The Method’ and which changed the art of acting worldwide. Lara will be doing the AOS in Acting degree programme and hopes to follow in the footsteps of notable alumni including Scarlett Johansson, Alec Baldwin, Uma Thurman and John Voight.

Since being a young child, Lara has had a burning desire to live in Los Angeles and work in Hollywood and attended a Theatre School to further that ambition.  A move to DLD College London for her A level studies gave her a chance to become more independent both inside and outside of school, to learn how to deal with a lot of different types of people, and generally mature and grow up as she was given more autonomy to manage her own life.

With a recent role in the BBC hit drama series Years & Years, it seems that Lara is on track to fulfil her ambitions and we wish her every success for the future.
