Anastasia Katya Breezy "Tasie" Dhanraj, also known by her stage name Tasie Lawrence, is a British actress and an occasional singer/songwriter. She was born in Brighton, East Sussex, England. She is close friends with co-star, Klariza Clayton and shares an apartment with co-star Ana Mulvoy Ten. She is half English and half Guyanese. She was a singer/songwriter and had her own alternative dark pop band, the WooWoos. She has confirmed on Twitter that she has left her band because she wants to go in a different direction with her career. She also confirmed on Twitter  that Season 3 would be her last as she wants to 'move on' and try new things. This actually gives the House of Anubis fans hope that there would be a Season 4. She was a featured artist on the song Relapse, which was the debut single of former castmate, Alex Sawyer.

She portrays Mara Jaffray in House of Anubis, which was her acting debut.
