Getting to know Laura...

What’s your favourite film?
That’s quite hard, I’m a big Harry Potter and Marvel/DC nerd but I think Shawshank Redemption wins! I used to stay at my grandparents’ house once a week when I was growing up and this was one of the only movies they ever had on VHS video, so I watched it over and over!
What’s your favourite book?
I read quite a lot but I don’t really have a favourite, the first one that comes to mind is probably The Brightest Star in the Sky by Marian Keyes.
What telly are you addicted to?
A mix of different things really, GOT is the obvious one, Chernobyl is really good, I loved Luther and now its just anything that comes onto Netflix. My next binge watch will be Killing Eve, I still haven't seen it!
Where would you most like to be right now?
On a warm, sunny beach with a cocktail away from the British weather.
Where would you most like to be right now?
Back in California driving the Pacific Coast Highway.
Where’s the best place you’ve travelled to?
I did a road trip a few years ago from Las Vegas up the west coast to San Francisco, it was amazing and would fully recommend it to everyone.
What would be your specialist subject on Mastermind?
Probably movies or rock/alternative music.
What’s your favourite sport to watch or play?
None, I don’t think I have one sporty bone in my body...
What’s the best soundtrack to a long car journey?
It depends where I’m going, but I love pop-punk, rock and metal, at the moment it's Architects newest album, or Bring Me The Horizon, I'm loving a band called Greyscale at the moment too.
What’s the best thing about Manchester?
The gigs and events that happen, plus there’s loads of really unique and cool places to go.
Tell us about your pet
I have two dogs, Mille – a golden retriever who’s 6 and Monty – a red-fox Labrador who’s 2. They’re both mischievous, always happy to see me and I love them to bits.
Sunday brunch or Sunday roast?
Roast of course...!
Finish this sentence - ‘I can usually be spotted in the office…
