Laura Berry (born April 2000) is a young British actress who played the character of Little Cosette in the 2009-2010 West End cast of Les Miserables. She was nine years old at the time she started working, and turned ten towards the end of her year-long run. Laura was one of two actresses to take on the child part in that year. She has performed a couple of other times in other plays and musicals, but now that she is a young teenager, has since moved on to traditional theatre as well as band. However, she is still active in the youth theatre community.
Laura has wanted to be an actress since she was four years old. The picture to the right shows Laura at the age of nine, around the same time she was working on Les Miserables.
