“My agent contacted me one day and told me I had an audition for Ridley Scott’s new Sci-Fi series, Raised By Wolves. I couldn’t believe it at first, and I was so nervous for the audition, but then I was euphoric once I found out they cast me.” Said Lasker in a 2021 interview with GQ South Africa. 

Raised By Wolves is such a wild set to be working on, it is massive!

Just by being in that epic, high pressured environment, I grew and experienced so much and literally felt like I got to go to another planet.” He continued.
