Eve Leigh

Karla Crome is best known for her acting work. She played Riley in Sky Atlantic's Hit and Miss alongside US-star Chloe Sevingy. She subsequently worked with globally acclaimed director of The Killing, Birger Larsen, in the BAFTA award winning Murder for BBC2, in which she played the lead. Both performances won her a place in Screen International's 2012 'Stars of Tomorrow', one of the most influential new talent round-ups in the business (past candidates include Keira Knightley, Andrew Garfield and Dominic Cooper). Karla also plays series regular Jess in Seasons 4 and 5 of E4 flagship drama Misfits, and Aisling in Season 2 of the BBC's Prisoners' Wives. Karla’s writing work includes Our Days of Rage, (co-written for the Old Vic Tunnels), which explored the devastation caused by the Arab Spring. NYT subsequently commissioned Karla to write If Chloe Can, a stage play about the pressures young women face when considering career options. As of 2013, the play has been developed and is currently touring UK universities.
