Lara Pulver is a British actress. She is married to actor and singer Raza Jaffrey, with whom she has a son.

She has said:

My father’s family are Jewish and my mother converted when they were married. But they separated when I was about 11, so I haven’t had my father’s Jewish family around me for a long time. I see my grandparents and stuff, but I was a child when I was going to Shabbos with them. So doing what I’m doing now [playing a Jewish character] is bringing back lots of memories. And when I look at the characters Miriam and Abe, I think: ‘Oh my God, they could be my grandparents.’
