From stage to small TV roles to extra in a Marvel movie to starring in half a billion-dollar grossing blockbuster movie, in the relatively short career of Laura Haddock, she’s done it all. All that was left for the actress was to conquer the streaming market, and she seems to be on track with the upcoming crime-drama series on Netflix from the creator Money Heist.
Laura Haddock was born on 21 August 1985 in Enfield, London, to her parents, an investor father, and a zone therapy practitioner mother. The actress was born in Enfield, but she was raised in Hertfordshire, where she found her love of acting while studying at St. George’s School. Academics was not the dream of Laura, who was getting enamored with the idea of a career in acting, which is why she left for London at the age of 17 and started a journey in the world of show business.
She enrolled in the Arts Educational School, where she honed her skills as an actress and also started performing on the stage. The experience of stage translated into a career in front of the camera, but roles were hard to come by at the start. Laura got her on-camera debut in 2007 when she appeared in a single episode of the TV series My Family. Over a decade later, the actress is getting ready to wow audiences with her starring role in an Alex Pina Netflix series.

The creator of Money Heist is the hottest mind in the tinsel town after the success of the Spanish series, which recently wrapped up the fourth part of the show. Alex Pina created the show, and now Netflix is hoping he can bring the same level of excitement to his new project for the streaming giant.
White Lines is an English language series from Alex Pina, and this time no mastermind is looking to become a rebellion symbol and rob the Spanish government. Instead, the story is about finding the fate of a long lost brother by his sister and discovering the truth behind the disappearance and possible death of her brother.
