Early life and education

She auditioned for her first role in “Downton Abbey” in 2011 when she was 21 – she was about to finish her final year of studies and they allowed her to finish early so that she could shoot the show. She and the rest of the cast did so well that they received the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.
After “Downton Abbey”, she was in front of the camera every year, and had no problem in finding roles – in 2014 and 2015 she appeared in “Lovesick”, “Last Tango in Halifax” and “Call the Midwife” TV series just for an episode in each before she landed a main role in “The Syndicate” drama mystery series, about a group of people whose lives completely change when they win the lottery together.
The show was a success, and helped Cara gain more recognition in the industry, really getting things going for Cara, as she later won a main role in the “Together” TV series in 2015, “Harry Price Ghosthunter” in the same year, “Crazyhead” in 2016 and “Absentia” in 2017, thelatter a crime drama mystery series about an FBI agent who was declared dead, and now has to reclaim her family and identity – it made Cara somewhat popular, and she will be working on this show in 2019 as they are about to release its second season.
Cara also appeared in two movies: “Zombie Spring Breakers” in 2016 and “Ready Player One” in 2018 – she also gave voice to Tracer in the “Overwatch” game, and another Tracer in “Heroes of the Storm” game – Cara is currently working on three TV series, including “Absentia”, “Kiri” and “Manhunt”.
Personal life and likes
It is only certain that Cara doesn’t have a husband, but she keeps the rest of her personal life to herself – there are no rumors whatsoever about her love life and she either doesn’t have a boyfriend or is very good at keeping her relationship away from the public – some people say that she might be lesbian, but those are just jokes because she never talks about men.
Cara claims how the most important thing in her career was the advice she got from an English actor called Jim Carter – he told her that longevity is the key to having a successful acting career, and that is another reason why Cara’s role models are Julie Walters, Olivia Colman and Emma Thompson as all of them have that longevity factor. She always wanted to go only for the jobs which would challenge her because, as she says, it is something that will keep you sustained through your long career.
She also stated in an interview that her favorite genre to act in is comedy, and that people consider her to be funny. She enjoys spending time in nature, especially at the beach, and loves dogs the most out of all animals.

‘…I think I would get bored just doing one or the other. I would hate to get pigeon-holed into one type of character or genre, I loved all the fighting in “Crazyhead”… a lot of fighting, with various bizarre weapons… The things that our characters get to do, it feels so different from what I’ve done before…’
‘Reading a script where the first scene ends with your character pissing on someone is unusual, it was the first scene we filmed and it took three days to shoot – a great bonding moment for the cast.’ – Cara talking about her role in “Crazyhead”.
Cara was the 39th actress to act out giving birth on “Call the Midwife” TV series in 2012.
