Locke & Key Wiki


Every character I play holds a very special place in my heart so it’s hard for me to choose one over the other because each experience is so different. The thing that is so special about Dodge is that she was written to have fun while being mean.

Biography[]

Born on January 11, 1992, in Toronto, Canada, Laysla grew up studying the humanities from a young age, and while she became a model, she was more interested in acting. During filming, she developed a powerful bond with Darby Stanchfield and supplied the Portuguese dub for Netflix's imminent presentation. Unlike Griffin Gluck, she learned of the show's final twist relatively quickly. She appreciated how Dodge was unafraid to be mean to certain people and never apologized for doing what had to be done, a trait not often seen in antagonistic female roles. Indeed, Dodge was her first time portraying an alleged villainess instead of an accepted heroine or neutral character, and is her most well-known role to date. She was stated to have nothing but enthusiasm for the role and for the future of the Netflix franchise.

Later on, Laysla was notably the first to release anything related to Season Two by showing Dodge suiting up on her Instagram profile.
