Halifax native Laura Parker, who made her prime time debut on CBS’ hit show CSI: NY in October, will appear on TV again Monday night when she has a small part at the beginning of “Castle” at 10 p.m. on ABC.
Parker, the daughter of Dr. Charles H. Parker Jr. of Halifax, moved to Los Angeles in 2010 after graduating from Harvard University’s MFA program in Acting at the American Repertory Theatre/Moscow Theatre Institute for Advanced Theater Training.
She lived in Halifax County for four years in the 1990s attending Sinai Elementary and Halifax County Middle schools.
This fall she appeared in the second episode of Season 9 of CSI: NY titled “Where There’s Smoke” playing the young mother of the villain.
Her first television appearance was on Spike TV’s “1000 Ways to Die” in 2011.
She completed filming this summer for a supporting role in “Mucho Dinero,” a comedy feature film written and directed by Blake Freeman. In the film, she plays the secretary of the leading man-Casper Van Dien, who is known for his role in “Starship Troopers.”
The film is expected to premiere in 2013.
