She is the daughter of Televisa producer Federico Wilkins and Susana Perez. Laisha made her debut in 1997 with the series Mi generacion (My Generation), then eventually went on to appear in a few telenovelas, including Soñadoras, the highly-popular Locura de Amor (Madness of Love), Primer amor... a mil por hora and Bajo la Misma Piel. Away from acting, Laisha has appeared on several talk shows as a fill-in hostess, most notably on the Miami-based El Gordo y La Flaca. Starting January 1 of 2007, she will be hosting a new show on Televisa's Canal 4, titled Metrópolis. She is set to reprise her role of Lt. Lucia Alvarez in Mujeres Asesinas, but this time she will transform into one of the killers.
