Laura Main is a Scottish actress as well as a singer who was born in in 1981. She was born as the eldest of three daughters to a restaurant owner Mike Main and his attorney wife Kimmy. Born in Aberdeen, Laura had to witness an unfortunate event when her parents separated after her 6th birthday. Her second sibling Maya was already 1 year old by then, and the kids who had to live with their mother saw her struggle to get a new place. Soon, the third child was born and Kimmy had to quit her job for some time to bring up the kids. “Those were the dark days; the ones that made you feel like crying. Maybe because I was only a child back then, but I am sure it was more difficult for our mum” she said in an interview. Born in a Christian family and community, she follows the same religion and is a Scott by nationality, belonging to white ethnicity.
Laura grew up as a child in hard times when her family wasn’t doing pretty good. She was raised in Aberdeen where she studied at the local Hazlehead Academy, from where she graduated. Prior to her schooling days, she wasn’t considered to be good in any things particular and wasn’t a bright student in her class as well. But then she joined her school’s musical class and started to impress everybody with her singing abilities. Her mother encouraged her to keep singing and also bought her a guitar when she was 8, which she learned by herself. She started to take part in many talent shows as well as competitions and also represented her school in musical events. Besides that, she also learned dancing and took classes at the Dance Centre in Aberdeen. Upon graduation, she surprised almost everybody after she chose to study art history at the University of Aberdeen. But she didn’t complete her study there as she went to London and trained at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art. That was after she realized that she wanted to become an actress.
She started her career as early as at 11, when she was in a musical theatre and her first role was in the story The Sound of Music. Then she got on to explore several other roles with different theatre companies one of which was Royal Shakespeare Company. She was also recruited by some musical companies, and also she performed on weekends with her guitar and songs that she listened from other artists. It is believed that she had also been given the chance to record her solo album but couldn’t do so as she didn’t have songs or words of her own. Her first appearance in TV came back in 2011 when she was casted by BBC in Call the Midwife. There, she got the chance to record some of her solo songs, which were released by BBC in 2013.
