Who is Laura Harring?
Born Laura Elena Marinez Herring on the 3rd March 1964, in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico, she is an actress, model, and a former beauty pageant contestant, probably best known to the world for her double role of Camilla Rhodes/Rita in the mystery film “Mulholland Drive”, directed by David Lynch. She has also come to prominence for becoming the first Hispanic woman crowned Miss USA, when she won the Miss USA pageant in 1985.
Laura Harring Bio: Early Life, Parents, and Education
The daughter of Raymond Herring, a developer and organic farmer, and his ex-wife Maria Elena Martinez-Cairo, a spiritual teacher, real estate investor and a secretary as well, Laura’s parents divorced when she was only seven years old, and she lived in Mexico until she turned ten, then moved to the USA, settling in San Antonio, Texas. Two years later, Laura was involved in a drive-by shooting and suffered a shot to her head, but luckily the bullet missed her brain just by a millimeter. She fully recovered eventually and was ready for high school, but when she turned 16, Laura managed to persuade her parents to send her to Switzerland to study at Aiglon College. After acquiring a degree from the prestigious educational institution, Laura returned to the US, and started a life on her own, away from her parents’ influence, settling in El Paso, Texas, and it was at that time that Laura launched her career.
Laura made her acting debut in the television film “The Alamo: Thirteen Days to Glory” in 1987, and slowly built a name for herself in a number of projects, including the horror film “Silent Night, Deadly Night 3: Better Watch Out!” in 1989, and the soap opera “General Hospital” (1990-1991). She felt the first rays of real success in the TV drama series “Sunset Beach” in 1997, appearing in over 140 episodes of the award-winning series.

Rise to Prominence
In the next few years, Laura’s name became more popular, and as a result she was chosen for the double role of Rita/Camilla Rhodes in one of David Lynch’s films that stunned the world – “Mulholland Drive” – alongside Naomi Watts and Justin Theroux, winning the hearts of critics for her staggering performance, and as well as the American Latino Media Arts (ALMA) Award for Outstanding Actress in a Feature Film for her performance. Laura continued in the same rhythm, starring in the film “John Q” as Gina Palumbo, then next to Jean Claude Van Damme in the film “Derailed”, before collaborating again with David Lynch, this time on the film “Rabbits”, all in 2002. Laura enjoyed success all through the 2000s, starring in a number of successful films – in 2003 she starred next to Crispin Glover and R. Lee Ermey in the thriller film “Willard”, then two years later appeared with Gael Garcia Bernal and William Hurt in the drama film “The King”, while from 2009 to 2010, Laura had a guest starring role in the highly-acclaimed TV series “Gossip Girl”.

|5||Some may think fashion is frivolous, but the way I see it, when you dress well, you add beauty to the world. And there's nothing wrong with that, right?|
|6||It is important to know the difference between the hard work of acting and play-acting at events like this. The only difference between me and some other actresses is that I don't mind playing the game.|
|7||In private, I'm a hippie who follows Buddhism, does yoga, meditates and loves to dance wildly. But when I'm on show, I become a different person. Some actors do not understand that difference, and resent it. I say, 'Let them give you the jewels, go around with your bodyguard, let them dress you. If you are promoting a film, don't be afraid of glamor.'|
|8||Unless you have a real passion for making movies, then don't bother. I had to carry energy and light into every meeting, only to be told, 'We don't want you.' I couldn't take it personally. You just have to wait, and live for those moments when the casting director likes you. Those words - 'You're hired' - are the best. I would try to remember what I learned in India - everything that happens is a mirror of how you are feeling. If you don't feel good about yourself, people don't feel good about you either. When you feel good, people see that and want to help you.|
