English actress Laura Carmichael debuted in 2009, appearing in the film House at the End of Our Street. She next played a small role in the movie The Heart of Thomas Hardy. She got her major break in the 2010s, starring as Lady Edith Crawley in the prominent British drama series Downton Abbey, which she starred in from 2010 to 2015.

The 33-year-old actress eats well, at least most of the time she does. She’s a foodie but it’s all about balance and moderation for her. Nevertheless, she eats what she wants. “Granola for breakfast – I know that sounds pretty dull but I can’t get enough granola in my life. Avocado and halloumi salad with chili dressing for lunch. For dinner, curry. I love Indian food. We have a great place near my home in London. I like it very spicy. It’s my favorite thing,” the actress said when asked about her ideal food day in an interview.
