An episode of 'Eastenders' entitled 'Consent', directed by Laura, has been nominated for both a BAFTA and Best Single Episode Award at the British Soap Awards. Therese Dalton of County Wexford Youth Film Project said: 'This is a fantastic opportunity for young filmmakers and we are delighted to have Laura back to facilitate this workshop. We really appreciate her taking the time to visit us considering her extremely busy schedule.
