Laura Fraser as Lydia Rodarte-Quayle

Laura Fraser

Born in Glasgow on July 24, 1976, the daughter of Rose, a college lecturer and nurse, and Alister Fraser, a screenwriter and businessman, Laura Fraser is the Scottish actress portraying Lydia Rodarte-Quayle, Gustavo Fring’s methylamine supplier, in the final season of Breaking Bad.

Fraser’s first big break was playing Door in the BBC’s dark fantasy series Neverwhere in 1996, but it was her performance as Lavinia, opposite Anthony Hopkins, in Julie Taymor’s film Titus (1999) that brought her to the attention of American audiences. Fraser next earned the admiration of fans and critics alike in the hit feature A Knight’s Tale (2001), starring Heath Ledger. Other films include The Flying Scotsman (2006), opposite Johnny Lee Miller, and Scott Hicks’ The Boys Are Back (2009), opposite Clive Owen. She also starred as the title character in Florence Nightingale, broadcast on BBC One in June 2008, and from 2010 to 2012 as Cat MacKenzie in the BBC Three series Lip Service.

In 2003, Fraser married actor Karl Geary. They have one daughter, Lila, and live in Brooklyn, New York.
