Being an English actress, Cara Theobold has soared in her acting career and it’s partly because of the advice she received from English actor – Jim Carter – when she was set to move on from her first acting role.
It is known that Cara was a student of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London when she landed her first acting role.

According to the English actor, challenging roles would keep her sustained through a long career.
Cara found Carter’s advice sensible, she believes longevity is the key to having a phenomenal acting career. This is why her role models are Julie Walters, Olivia Colman and Emma Thompson. They all have the longevity factor. To reach the heights of her role models, Cara wouldn’t limit herself to a particular genre.
“…I think I would get bored just doing one or the other. I would hate to get pigeon-holed into one type of character or genre,” she said. Cara linked this sentiment to her Amy main role in the award-winning British comedy-horror (Crazyhead) created by Howard Overman. “I loved all the fighting…a lot of fighting, with various bizarre weapons…The things that our characters get to do, it feels so different from what I’ve done before…, she expressed.
