Lara says, “On set for By Light of Desert Night, I laid in a dirty ditch in the hot sun for two days, and my back was covered in scratches after filming for months. I’m all in – physically and emotionally when it comes to my roles. My life motto is; dive in, head-first, take risks and have no regrets.”
