Welcome

Laura King Otazo is a Brooklyn based actor, originally from the Buffalo area. 

She loves working on period pieces, witty comedies, and adaptations from novels.  Her favorite roles are generally warm, quick-witted women with strong backbones, but she also has a real soft spot for awkward older sisters.

Apart from acting, Laura is an avid reader and library lover. She is actively working on her Spanish since she spends time in Chile yearly.  She has two very beloved pets, a cat named Lydia and a dog named Megatron (who truly lives up to his name).
