Actor Bio

Lorraine Bruce wanted to be an actress from the age of two. The reaction from her parents, who both were entertainers, was a mixture of pride and dismay. It became apparent as the years went by and the tales enacted in the living room and garden grew into school plays -- and a remarkable performance as a bearded Fagin in "Oliver!" drew rave reviews from the local press -- that this was not a phase, but rather a grand passion.

Bruce won a place in drama school at the Academy for Live and Recorded Arts in London, and after three blissful years spent studying the delights of Shakespeare, Miller and Lorca, she embarked on a career as an actress. She played some of the most notable rep theatres in the UK and also worked with some of the foremost directors in British theatre, including Rufus Norris ("Vernon God Little" at the Young Vic), and spent several years in the West End -- as Madame Thenardier in "Les Misérables" at the Queens Theatre and as Toine in "Piaf."

During this time Bruce worked extensively as a character actress on British television, which led to a lead in the British series "The Syndicate," on which "Lucky 7" is based. She is the only British cast member who has been cast in the U.S. version of the show.
