During her school time she competed in international dressage competitions, travelling to France, England, Germany and Belgium.
When Lara turned 16 she got scouted by model agencies in Amsterdam. She then had a decision to make: continue with her dressage career, or becoming as a model.
Lara decided to become a model, and half a year later she made her first trip to Paris where she walked a show for Paris Fashion week.
After this, she got signed with agencies in Paris, Milan, New York, London and started full- time modelling by the age of 18.
She worked for many clients, such as Vogue Italia, Elle, Glamour, Phillip Lim, and Calvin Klein.
When Lara was little she starred in the series ‘Erwtje’ on Dutch Television, where she discovered her love for acting. During her school time she played in Musicals and theatre performances, and currently in commercials, guest roles for dutch tv, music videos and short films.
Lara auditioned for ‘de Jaargang’ and faaam. She got accepted and decided to do both. She is currently attending courses at the Toneelmeesters and Terence Schreurs Class.
