Starred as Romana on "Doctor Who"
Lalla was a successful textile artist and ceramicist and has shown three exhibitions at the National Theatre, London.
On her debut role on Dr. Who: ""I must have been the most unusual entrant into the series. My audition was, unwittingly, a six-week story! Naturally, at the time I had no idea it would blossom into the offer of a regular job. I was fortunate because when I joined, I knew everybody, so the first-night nerves, so to speak, were not so concentrated. Everybody had been so surprised at Mary Tamm’s decision to leave. It was all so quick, before I knew it there I was – the new Romana!"
