Kara Lily Hayworth, 28 years old, is an Actress and Singer trained at The Central School of Speech and Drama on the BA (Hons) Acting course (musical theatre pathway) from 2007-2010.
Kara grew up in Buckinghamshire with parents Janice and Russell. It was not a theatrical family but she developed a passion for performing very early on in her life. She began dance classes at the young age of 5 and her family were always encouraging and supportive. She first starting performing to large audiences in the dance shows at The Maggie Monk School of Dancing and after a few years was asked to sing in one of the numbers. Her talent was immediately noticed and she was asked to join the Jackie Palmers agency at the age of 11.
Her very first professional audition was for the national tour of Annie and she landed the title role. The show was an amazing experience and from then on she adored the theatre and performing. She knew that it was her ambition in life to become an actress and she was a very ambitious young lady (and still is).
After 'Annie', she did a stint presenting on the Discovery Kid's channel which was her television debut. A few years later she hit the television screens again in the BBC/ABC production of 'Noah and Saskia' where she played the part of Melanie.
Although she was busy Acting, her education was the most important thing to her and her family. She gained excellent GCSE's and A levels to get a good foundation before studying Acting at Drama School.
Central was an amazing experience and she learnt a huge amount. The training not only only honed her skills as an actress, but helped her to understand the hardships of the industry and get a thick skin to handle it.
Since graduating, she has been very busy with various things including theatre, several short films and feature films as well as concerts and commercials. She has performed at some incredible venues over the last few years including Wembley Stadium where she performed The National Anthem, The Royal Albert Hall for The Night of 1000 Stars concert and Wembley Arena with her Band, Zyrah Rose.
Kara made her West End debut as the leading role of Edwin Drood in The Mystery of Edwin Drood at the Arts Theatre Leicester Square which was a wonderful experience. Her other musical theatre credits include Cabaret (UK tour), Maggie May (Finborough) and Cilla the Musical (UK tour).
One of her latest endeavours was working on feature film ‘Huntsman, Winter's War’ with Director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan starring Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron. She played the cast role of Lady-in-Waiting to Freya (played by Emily Blunt).
