Lisa Moore appeared on Coronation Street in August 2001 as the Police Liaison Officer who visited with Toyah Battersby following her rape ordeal. She returned to the programme intermittently between March and September 2016 as the mother of Lauren, a girl bullying Bethany Platt.

After graduating with an honours degree from Manchester University in 1992, she began her career as an actor/teacher/director combining posts as lecturer at Oldham College and also as artist in residence with Oldham Youth Service where she directed various projects, ranging from a short touring piece for Work Aids day, to producing and directing a community documentary entitled Opening Doors, which highlighted issues around racism and was inspired by the highly controversial Stephen Lawrence case.

Throughout this time she was also a jobbing actor and enjoyed various theatre TV and film roles including Doctors, Playing the Field, Emmerdale, Heartbeat, BBC radio 4 productions and several theatre roles. Lisa joined Salford University in 2001 initially as a freelance part-time lecturer in Characterisation and Acting for the Camera.

Whilst completing her MA, she took on the role of script development officer for "Rainy City", an independent Manchester-based film production company, where her role was to help develop new writing talent as well as liaising with some of the country's most prestigious directors.
