Karla Crome (born 22 June 1989) is an English actress, best known for her work on Sky Atlantic's Hit & Miss, playing series regular Jess on E4's Misfits, as well as appearing in a number of other television series and films, mainly in the United Kingdom, including the award-winning Murder. In 2012, Screen International named Crome as one of the 'UK Stars of Tomorrow'.
Crome graduated from the three year BA (Hons) Acting Course at the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts in Clapham, London.
As of October 2012, Crome was living at home with her parents in Borehamwood, England.
Crome played the lead, Coleen, in Birger Larsen's BAFTA Award Winning (2013) production of Murder for BBC2, Alison Graham said in The Radio Times: "...it stayed with me for days, dammit. Every brittle little shard of it, thanks largely to one of the most astounding, affecting acting performances I have ever seen, from rising star Karla Crome as Coleen..."
On May 22 2012 it was announced that Crome would appear in the fourth series of E4 drama Misfits in the regular role of Jess. Crome said she enjoyed working on the production as it allowed her to play a comedic role which she initially felt was not her strength. She described the character as someone who "says what she thinks and can see through people's bullshit" and as "a tough cookie, but she's quite vulnerable too".
Crome appears in ITV five part series Lightfields as Clare. Again, she has received excellent reviews for her performance with Matt D. saying: "...the standout was definitely Karla Crome, who has shone in everything from Murder to Misfits, here playing the emotionally damaged Claire..."
She has also joined the cast of BBC series Prisoners' Wives for the show's second series, playing the role of Aisling.
She has also appeared on stage in Manchester Royal Exchange's production of Powder Monkey.
Her play, If Chloe Can, was presented by the The National Youth Theatre.
Crome is represented by Michael Duff at TROIKA.
In February 2014, it was revealed that Crome would be joining the cast of CBS' Under the Dome as a series regular for the show's second season
