Lang is perhaps best known for her starring roles in two 1990s sitcoms – as Bill Porter, alongside Gary Olsen as husband Ben, in the BBC TV comedy 2point4 Children and as Liza Ferrari in Second Thoughts.
After a small part as 'Girl in Bath' in Play for Today in 1980 she appeared in the 1980 miniseries To Serve Them All My Days, following this she had several one off appearances and small parts until she took the role of 'Kate' in both series of the sitcom Dear John (1986–1987).
Following Dear John she played Martha in The Bretts (1987–88) during which she acted alongside her future husband, Hugh Fraser and during the same period also appeared as Sheila Walsh in Bust.
Lang also had a lead part in the television series Inspector Alleyn Mysteries in which she played the artist Agatha Troy between 1990–1994.
Following 2point4 Children, Lang has rarely appeared on television, instead taking on more theatre work. She has, however, made guest appearances in several programmes including; playing the ill-fated business woman, Elspeth Inkpen-Thomas in Midsomer Murders, alongside John Nettles and television presenter Quinnie Dorrell in "The Gongoozlers", a 2004 episode of the murder mystery series Rosemary and Thyme, and a couple of episodes of the BBC daytime soap opera Doctors.
In 1988, Lang appeared in the BBC Radio 4 play Hard of Hearing opposite Graham Blockey. She also took part in Stilgoe's Around, also broadcast on Radio 4 and BBC Radio 2. Second Thoughts was based on a radio programme originally broadcast on Radio 4.
