Laura Vandervoort is best known for her roles in science fiction television shows, but she's already proven that she's got the talent to stick around for more dramatic fare. Laura is currently headlining the TV show 'Bitten', which is about a lone female werewolf trying to reconcile her true identity with her family of werewolves.
Laura's gotten very strong notices for her performance, especially in something that could have easily been simple genre fare. However, Laura's managed to bring a lot of nuance and depth into a fairly straightforward role, and she should truly be commended for that. Hollywood's definitely noticed, and the show's already been renewed for another season, not to mention the rights having been sold to multiple territories. The show will now start airing on Syfy, which is practically guaranteed to increase Laura's exposure across the world.
The actress has already had some success in film, with bit roles in This Means War and Ted. However, it's only recently that her name has started getting tossed around for bigger roles. She's already got her first high-profile leading film role with Coffee Shop, which is reportedly set to release sometime in 2014. Although the cast isn't filled with bigger names, many sources in the industry claim that it's just a stepping stone for much bigger things.
Fans of Bitten are already excited about the upcoming second season, not to mention the show's fantastic reception with critics. In conjunction with that, Laura's also making sure to make more public appearances, including one at the recent MMVAs. There's no doubt that her career has just started taking off, and we look forward to seeing what she does in the future.
