Laura Seabrook, who plays aspiring singer/songwriter Rachel Winslow, grew up in a small village which lay hidden less than an hour outside of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Constructed by a Swiss designer to resemble his homeland, it was the perfect childhood realm for little Laura, a world of beauty and fantasy destined to be discovered!
Laura’s acting career first began in 2008 when she landed a supporting role in a series pilot which received three nominations in the Alberta Film and Television Awards. It also marked her first studio experience as she recorded vocals and piano for the soundtrack. In The Kois (2009), Laura plays posh girl Gillian Arlington who has all that money can buy but struggles to find her place as a freshman in high school, until her talent as a keyboardist and singer makes a way for her.
Laura went on to star in Inner Quest (2010), a feature film which explores a forbidden friendship between two girls from clashing cultures and beliefs. She played the role of Samantha, a vibrant individual who sees no boundaries in cultural differences and fights to protect her best friend, a Muslim girl, from the harshness of the western world. Inner Quest won a Canadian Film Critics Award and an Award of Merit at The Accolade Film Festival.
In the spring of 2012, tragedy struck when a beloved friend was killed in an accident. Searching for beauty in pain, Laura wrote and recorded a song, Never Let Go, in her honor. She included this song in her next audition which booked her the lead role of Rachel Winslow – a vibrant and free-spirited singer, songwriter and pianist.
The Dove Foundation commended her work in a review of the film: “Laura Seabrook stands out as Rachel Winslow, and has a real singing talent.”
