[1] Who Is Lara Parker!       Crystal Angelique animation!

      Lara was born in Knoxville, Tennessee, and grew up in Memphis. She attended Central High School in Memphis and won a scholarship to Vassar College where she began a major in Philosophy, which she completed at Southwestern at Memphis, now called Rhodes College, receiving her BA. She attended graduate school at the University of Iowa and completed all course work on a Masters in Speech and Drama.
      The summer Lara was to write her thesis she acted at the Millbrook Playhouse in Loch Haven, Pennsylvania, where she did five leading roles in six weeks. Rather than return to Iowa, she decided to try her luck in New York City, and the second week she was there she was cast as Angelique the witch in the daytime horror serial "Dark Shadows," a job she held for five years, culminating in the film, "Night of Dark Shadows". While she was in New York, she appeared in a Broadway play, "Woman is My Idea", and two off-Broadway Plays: "Lulu" and "A Gun Play".
      Lara moved to Los Angeles in 1972 and began working in film and nighttime television, performing many guest roles and occasionally returning to daytime television. After acting she has been a high school teacher, has written several screenplays, and has completed her first novel (see book section below). As of 1999 she lives in California with her husband and daughter.

A pretty good interview with Lara can be found in Femme Fatales Magazine, Summer 1995, Volume 4 Number 1. Information for ordering back issues can be found at... Femme Fatales Magazine FAQ.

[8] Why a Page for Lara Parker?!

Lara Parker!     Vampire Angelique!     Lara Parker!!!

I'm one of those old people who saw DARK SHADOWS during it's original broadcast.  Lara did such an excellent job of playing a strong, seductive, sensual witch (or something that rhymes with witch), that I couldn't help but have her make a big impression on my adolescent little male brain! A superb actress who never seemed to get the big parts she deserved, Lara Parker ought to have her own web page and much more!

This small but exciting part of the WWWeb is brought to you by Robert Haycock.  E-Mail me with any questions, comments, suggestions, or information about Lara Parker.  Sorry, but because of Massive SPAM problems my E-Mail link has been "hidden". See the info box at the bottom of this page for more info, thanks!

FastCounter people have been mesmerized by Lara since July 1st, 1997.
