Crome played the lead, Coleen, in Birger Larsen's BAFTA Award-winning (2013) production of Murder for BBC2. Alison Graham said in The Radio Times: "...it stayed with me for days, dammit. Every brittle little shard of it, thanks largely to one of the most astounding, affecting acting performances I have ever seen, from rising star Karla Crome as Coleen..."
Crome appears in ITV five-part series Lightfields as Clare. Again, she has received excellent reviews for her performance with Matt D. saying: "...the standout was definitely Karla Crome, who has shone in everything from Murder to Misfits, here playing the emotionally damaged Claire..."
In 2018, Crome played Amina in Dance Nation at the Almeida Theatre.
Crome is also a writer. Her play Mush and Me premiered at Edinburgh Festival in 2014 before transferring to Holden Street Theatres, Adelaide. She wrote episode five, season one of Hooten and The Lady for Red Planet Pictures and Sky1.
