Laura Elizabeth Carmichael, better known as Laura Carmichael is an English model/ actress. She was born on the 18th of July, 1986 and her current age is 29 years old. She was born as one of the three children born to a software engineer father Andrew Carmichael and her mother Sarah Carmichael worked as a radiographer. Born in their home at Southampton, Hampshire, England she was raised along with her little sister Judith and her elder brother Shawn. All the kids attended the Shirley Junior School, where Laura was a shy and timid student. She is recalled as someone who sat in the corner with her books and didn’t take part in any other activities.
So, her parents thought about changing her school and she attended The Mountbatten School. It was here that she first got the taste of performing, which at the time “nearly gave me a nervous breakdown”, she said. After performing on stage for the first time, strangely she wanted to do it again. Thus, Laura became an active member and started to get involved in her school’s dramas and acts and took part in many such events. Upon graduation, she continued her higher education at the Peter Symonds College, where she did a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts, with drama as her major. Born and raised in England, she is a British by nationality and belongs to white ethnicity. Her parents had mixed religious backgrounds, but she is a Christian and has been from her childhood.
Besides her school and college, Laura is also an aspirant of dance and has been learning to dance since she was 9. She has successfully learned many forms of dance like: tap, jazz, tango, ballet and others. She even had a dream to become a dancer as she grew up and make a future out of it. But, her interest changed and she started with acting which became another of her fondest thing with time. After she graduated from college, she moved to Bristol in order to explore and enhance her acting abilities. There, she joined the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and was in the school till 2007. She also worked for some time in a radio station in the time when she didn’t get any acting roles, but had to survive. She is also a member of the The Fitzrovia Radio Hour. After grabbing a couple of minor roles in some TV shows and movies, her first major role was in the series Uncle Vanya (2012). She was also very famous as Lady Edith Crawley in the British TV drama Downton Abbey. Other of her roles have come in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011) and Madame Bovary (2014).
Not having established herself in the industry, Laura however has got all the potentials to be one of the very best in what she does. She is a beautiful woman and is as hard working as talented she is. Although a lot of search is made regarding her personal life and affairs, there is not much information regarding that. She doesn’t like to discuss her personal life in the media and so far has been successful in concealing her romantic affairs.
