Lara is a feisty Australian with a no-frills approach to her work. She was keen to succeed and proved she could do the job under extraordinary circumstances. Lara hid herself behind her medical brilliance and had a fear of intimacy since Patrick's death.
Lara fled Holby after learning of Simon's infidelities on their wedding day. She booked a one way ticket back to Oz.
