When A Very Potter Musical first broke out on the scene, it did a number of things. The musical provided some much-needed content for the potter fans, while also making us realize why it fell in love with Hogwarts in the first place. On the other end, the musical also gave a platform to many talented actors who went on to become a household name in musicals. One of those actors is Lauren Lopez. Even though Lopez handled the role of Draco Malfoy in the musicals, she went onto work on several other musicals. In this article, we take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Lauren Lopez.
Lauren Lopez was born on the 8th of March 1986 in Royal Oak, Michigan. Born and raised in Michigan, Lauren spent much of her early life with her brother. As a young kid, Lauren was full of ideas. In an interview, Lauren revealed that she invented a game ‘hamming’ that she used to play with her friends In her own words,
“Friends and I used to do this thing called ‘hamming’ where we’d buy a pack of ham, and we’d drive around and throw ham at stuff so it would, like, stick. So we’d like to throw ham at car windows and throw it to stick to tree trunks. I don’t in any way condone this. Vandalism with lunch meat. I don’t condone that.”
After graduating from a local high school, Lauren enrolled at the University of Michigan to study theatre arts. A natural actor, Lauren’s talent was instantly recognized. She was invited to be a part of a theatrical group, Starkid Productions.
While still at college, Lauren was invited to work on movies including The Spiral Project and Clowns on Earth. When Lauren joined Starkid Productions in 2009, the team was gearing up for a harry potter musical. Lauren played the role of Draco Malfoy, which bugged most viewers as Draco was a boy. However, Lauren revealed that she thought the idea was cool and signed up for it. The musical was an instant hit amongst the fans. Following the huge success, Team Starkid launched eight more musicals.
Lauren participated in all of the musicals including Me and My Dick, A Very Potter Sequel, Starship, Holy Musical B@man!, and A Very Potter Senior Year. The group kept turning in more musicals including parodies like Batman, Star Wars, Aladdin, and The Oregon Trail.
Movies and other things:
