Laila Danielle Shaker was born and raised in Northern California. At a very young age Laila fell in love with acting and performing while at a youth Shakespeare camp and soon after decided that was what she wanted to do with her life. Later on she realized her passion for acting in film and made film and television her career path.
Laila is drawn to serious, strong and unique characters, but also has a love and talent for comedy and improv. She has performed in several live improv shows and was part of a short improvised film currently in post production.
Since starting her career at the age of fourteen, Laila has acted in numerous commercials and independent films around the Bay Area and continued to work regularly as a live performance actor in San Francisco before moving to Los Angeles to pursue her passion and her career goals.
Laila now studies improv at The Groundlings and film acting at Anthony Meindl’s Actor’s Workshop in Los Angeles. She attributes her unique look, inclusive attitude, and diverse worldview to growing up with an Egyptian father and a Jewish mother from Detroit.
