Karen V Lawrence

Karen V LawrenceKaren V. Lawrence is an actress and thriller, sci-fi, and radioplay fan. While looking for more film opportunities, some of her favorite stage roles have included Shakespearean villains and dreamers (Duke Frederick in As You Like It, Peter Quince in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Holofernes in Love’s Labour’s Lost), European ladies of the house (Émilie la Marquise du Châtelet as she Defends Her Life Tonight, Arcadia’a Lady Croom, and Oscar Wilde’s Lady Windermere), Dracula hunter Professor van Helsing, and Confederate widow Cecilia Pettison (Shiloh Rules). Apparently, she rarely gets to play in a world this side of the 20th century, though as foreperson of 12 Angry Jurors, Martha Hoch in Book of Days, and Cathy in the independent short Aftermath she got a good taste. The international modern noir audioworld of Quorum feels like the perfect fit for this anachronistic adventurer.

Karen lives in DC and Maryland, and while she has degrees in political science (University of Michigan) and international relations (London School of Economics), her acting training comes from a variety of schools including DC’s Theatre Lab, Studio Acting Conservatory, and Martin Blank Studio; New York’s HB Studio; the London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art; and suburban Chicago’s New Trier High School.
