Laura, a 1930s English housewife who sparks a romance with a dashing stranger at a train station.
The daughter of British actor David Yelland, she followed in the family footsteps by studying acting at Cambridge University before heading stateside.
This is Yelland's first Tony Award nomination.
Yelland lives in Washington, D.C., where her husband is a Deputy Legal Advisor at the White House.
“I love being Laura. I get to be very filmic and still and intense, but also have those moments where you see how much she’s in love.” —Yelland in an interview with Broadway.com, 11/10
