Audra Hardt is a local girl . . . local to Los Angeles & Hollywood, that is. And the entertainment capital of the world is certainly a great place to play . . . perhaps too great. As a child, Audra did everything to the max; a candle burning at both ends and sometimes in the middle. Rebellious, indulgent, independent, self destructive . . . Everything in the EXTREME.
