Lala Kent wasn’t born Lala Kent. She was born in Salt Lake City, Utah as Lauren Birmingham in 1990. She began acting later under the name Lauryn Kent, before ultimately becoming Lala Kent.

Nicki Swift reports that Lauren’s family wasn’t Mormon, and that she was often bullied in the Mormon-heavy area where she grew up.

She was close to her father, too, although he passed away in recent years.
