Cazalet's paternal grandfather was Major Peter Cazalet, the well-known racehorse-trainer, and her step great-grandfather was the leading English writer, (Sir) P.G. Wodehouse.
She has two older brothers, David Benedict Cazalet and Henry Pelham Cazalet. Henry, known as Hal, is a composer and opera singer. In addition, Lara and Hal also sing together, professionally, in a jazz trio.
Cazalet's first major television role was that of Zandra Plackett in Bad Girls, a part she played for two years until the character died of a brain tumour. The episode where Zandra died was the highest ever rated episode of Bad Girls with 9,490,000 viewers. She later played the lead role of barrister Annie Quick in New Street Law. Cazalet has also made guest appearances in Hustle, Judge John Deed, Waking the Dead and Holby City. She has played four different characters in episodes of The Bill, including a corrupt NCS officer attempting to frame DI Manson for murder and corruption, and the wife of a toy shop manager who robs her husband's store.
