Perhaps best known for her six seasons on camera as irrepressible tomboy SAMANTHA on NBC’s hit sit-com GIMME A BREAK, Lara Jill Miller began her career on Broadway in THE MUSIC MAN with Dick Van Dyke. And she has continued to steal the hearts of millions for nearly a decade as the cuddly LAMBIE on Disney’s Peabody Award-winning DOC MCSTUFFINS.
Matched in popularity perhaps only by her portrayal of child prodigy LISA LOUD on the Nickelodeon hit THE LOUD HOUSE, Lara Jill can also be heard starring in two of PBS’ Emmy-winning series: CURIOUS GEORGE (as George’s best friend ALLIE) and SCIGIRLS (as IZZY). And on top of her memorable starring role opposite Henry Winkler as CLIFFORD in PBS’ CLIFFORD’S PUPPY DAYS, are her title roles in both Cartoon Network’s THE LIFE AND TIMES OF JUNIPER LEE and Disney Jr.’s HENRY HUGGLEMONSTER.
Other starring credits include CAT on Amazon’s IF YOU GIVE A MOUSE A COOKIE, the evil FINK on CN’s OK K.O.! LET’S BE HEROES, and tool-toting WIDGET on Nick Jr.’s WOW! WOW! WUBBZY!, along with many notable recurring and guest appearances on Disney’s VAMPIRINA (MATILDA), Warner Brothers’ DC SUPER HERO GIRLS (CASEY KRINSKY), HI HI PUFFY AMI YUMI (evil friend JULIE), ALL GROWN UP (OLIVIA, Tommy Pickles’ first kiss!), MY MOM MARRIED A YETI (opposite Jim Gaffigan), HIGGLYTOWN HEREOS, and many more.
Video game credits range from KINGDOM HEARTS (CHIRITHY) to FORTNITE (JILLY TEACUP). Lara Jill also made a recent return to anime when she was tapped to star as the promiscuous yet conflicted HARU in the captivating Netflix hit BEASTARS — a fitting return to the genre where years earlier, she began her voice career in the iconic series and accompanying feature film DIGIMON. You can also catch her in frequent on-camera stints such as GENERAL HOSPITAL, ALL THAT, THE AMANDA SHOW, and iCARLY.
Also an accomplished singer, you can hear her voice on numerous recordings, including both Disney Jr’s Doc McStuffins and Henry Hugglemonster soundtracks, The Children’s Museum of Los Angeles Readers’ Theatre, Adiboo’s Discover Series, and NPR’s acclaimed The Wizard of Oz, along with many other popular toys and video games.
But don’t let her youthful sound and infectious energy fool you. Lara Jill graduated Phi Beta Kappa and Magna Cum Laude from New York University and Fordham School of Law. She passed the Bar Exam in three states and was a practicing attorney in NYC.
