When we catch up with Laura Whitmore during her recent run in UK play Not Dead Enough, it’s apparent that the Bray native is finally in her element. Hot Press sits down with Whitmore in a room a Cardiff’s New Theatre, during her appearance in the stage adaptation of Peter James’ crime novel Not Dead Enough.
