Laura Simms is a Los Angeles-based actor who works in film, television, voice-over, theatre and print. The first in four generations of her family not to go into law, Laura headed for the stage instead. Her career began in regional theatre with roles such as Alais in The Lion in Winter, Helen in The Trojan Women, and Portia in Julius Caesar. She performed in every state on the Eastern seaboard, toured to international festivals in Italy and Romania, and performed in a world-record breaking 70 hour improv show. 

Laura has studied with The Royal Shakespeare Company at Stratford-upon-Avon, at The Dell’Arte International School of Physical Theatre, and recently received an MFA in acting from UC Irvine. 

Since settling down in LA with her husband Zach and their entertaining rabbits Ewok and Henry, Laura has appeared on “ER,” “Criminal Minds,” “Leverage,” and, fittingly, on “Castle” as a young attorney. It seems the apple hasn’t fallen too far from the family tree.
