Lauren Black grew up in the small town of Cotati, California. Even though her city is small Lauren always had big dreams. She was born with Tricuspid Atresia, a congenital heart defect, which luckily is not visible and she is in remission. Lauren was raised in section 8 housing with a single mother who was disabled and an older sister both addicts. With all that said, Lauren knew exactly what she wanted to do with her life.... She wanted to become an actor. Due to the financial and physical difficulties, her dreams were not taken seriously as a child. But as soon as she turned eighteen, her journey began! Lauren has been in over 30 films; she started off as an extra in the hit Netflix series"13 Reasons Why" and so many more to learn her craft. She became a fly on the wall soaking up all the elements of acting and production.
She then landed her first lead role playing the girlfriend in an independent horror movie, "Live Among Us" produced by Vince Lopez and soon after landed a supporting role of "Kim", a mean spirited Sex Worker in "Bay Area Traffik" directed by Roland Dario. She excelled in "Let Us Play" as "Elizabeth", a rape victim, the mistreated girlfriend in "High Stakes", a thug chick named "Cherise" in "Blood, Skulls, and Chrome", and "The Astrid Experience" playing a rundown hooker produced by Cal Barnes. As you can see, broken woman has been her specialty.
She also had her fair share of best friend roles. Including the leading role of "Jordan, the stud" a supportive friend in "Irish Coffee", "Molly" the artsy girl in "The Black Market" produced by Alexander Roman, and as "Ryan" the smart ass in "Free Milk" produced by Jacalyn Evon. She is currently working on her second year of the Meisner Technique at Empower House Acting Studio with Melissa Thompson Asaia. And is studying with award winning actor and comedian Jason Stuart.
Lastly, Lauren created her own production company and began writing, producing, directing, and starring in her own short films. Her most recent film "Horrific High" follows a drug addict couple and "Mundaye" playing a young woman trying to get justice from a bad cop both available on Amazon Fire TV, Roku, YouTube and more.
Lauren knows just how precious life is. Her favorite quote is "I will act for as long as my heart pumps". This is only the beginning for this young ambitious actress.
