Lauren Mote Bio
Have you seen the new movie Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue? If you have you might recognize the voice of Lauren Mote, who plays the adventurous Lizzy, a young girl who dreams of meeting a fairy.
Lauren Mote was born in the English countryside in 1997. As a young girl, Lauren took an instant love to theater, and began training at the age of five. When she was 10 years old, Lauren was invited to attend the popular Sylvia Young Theater School in London, England (past students include Emma Bunton – aka Baby Spice – from the Spice Girls and singer/songwriter Amy Winehouse).
Because the school was in a different city, Lauren needed to move across the country. “It was a big move, but I’ve never regretted it,” says Lauren. “Of course I do miss home, but I love London. Now it’s my home!” Lauren’s favorite part about living in London is that she can go shopping along Oxford Street (which boasts more than 500 different stores!).
Lauren landed the much sought after role of Lizzy in Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue during an open audition in 2008. The film is about Tinker Bell’s first experience with a human, and all of the adventures they share. Lauren’s character Lizzy loves fairies, and really wants to catch one. She builds a fairy house but Tinker Bell ends up getting trapped. They soon become friends and begin to learn about each other’s similarities and differences.
“I always loved Tinker Bell,” says Lauren. “I thought she was so mischievous and I just think she’s an amazing Disney character.” Lauren could not be happier to be involved in the film.
Although this role is Lauren’s first major part in a feature film, it is just the beginning for the young and talented actress.
