After inadvertently discovering her love of acting, (via role-play in her college social services courses) Charlotte is making her cinematic debut. She can’t wait to see where this new endeavor will take her, and is absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to share part of herself with the world.
Beyond film acting, she loves spending time caring for her garden and menagerie of pets- including dogs, tree frogs, aquatic creatures, tortoises, and even a toucan. She is a Reiki practitioner and aspiring holistic health practitioner; she’s very much in tune with her spiritual self and is always finding ways to develop depth in everything she is and does.
Laura is a challenging character to play, but Charlotte is more than ready to bring her to life. She’s inspired by Laura’s search for consciousness beyond the surface of things and people and feels her own personal journey has shaped her into the perfect person to bring Laura into the world.
