KARLA CROME is enjoying success as a scriptwriter for stage and television as well as a blossoming career in acting. She starred in the brilliant BBC2 drama, MURDER, which won a BAFTA in 2013 for Best Single Drama, she has been the stand-out actor in her other roles in MISFITS (watched all over the world), PRISONER’S WIVES, LIGHTFIELDS and HIT AND MISS with Chloe Sevigny (it was this show that caught the attention of Screen International who profiled Karla in the prestigious annual ‘Stars of Tomorrow’ portfolio. Previous names include Keira Knightley, Robert Pattinson and Carey Mulligan).
Karla has won an Edinburgh Fringe Festival Award for her critically acclaimed stage play, MUSH AND ME, which she created and penned about the forbidden love between a Jewish girl and Muslim boy, a heartbreaking true story based on a family friend’s lost love. It was this play that caught the attention of producers at SKY and SKY ATLANTIC who invited her to be mentored by them and subsequently she’s writing for one of their new flagship shows HOOTEN AND THE LADY starring Ophelia Lovibond and Jane Seymour. Most recently she was seen in YOU, ME AND THE APOCALYPSE on SKY1, Steven Spielberg’s UNDER THE DOME and a starring role at the highly regarded Royal Court Theatre with the play, LINDA, opposite Noma Dumezweni. The London Evening Standard wrote of Karla’s performance "Karla Crome is especially good as the combative Alice” and The Daily Telegraph adding “ Karla Crome in particular is so miraculously good”.
Taking her first major lead role in a primetime drama, Karla has top billing in an exciting new crime thriller called THE LEVEL for ITV, which follows the complicated double life of a detective sergeant, played by Crome. Laura Haddock, Noel Clarke, Philip Glenister and Amanda Burton make up the rest of the key cast. This October, she will also appear at the prestigious National Theatre in a reimagining of AMADEUS by Peter Shaffer who is famous for his play EQUUS. She plays Mozart’s wife, Constanze.
