Laura Pyper was born in Magherafelt, County Derry, Northern Ireland in 1980. She studied English and Drama at Trinity College Dublin from 1998, and during her time there made several appearances with the university's much vaunted Trinity Players.
She made her television debut in 2001 in an episode of the Dublin comedy series, Bachelors Walk, returning briefly in the same role two years later. Her first film appearance was in the sci-fi thriller Reign Of Fire. She fared much better on the London stage in Blackwater Angel and Don Juan In Soho. Most recently, she had a co-starring role as Kelly in director Tammi Sutton's crime thriller, Isle Of Dogs.
In a range stretching career to date, Laura Pyper has by and large not disappointed. An early possible typecasting snare in Hex was quickly avoided, with a run of admirable character playing on both stage and screen, which has moved her discernibly to the next level.
