Lapotaire was born to an unmarried woman and an unknown father and was a long-term foster child with an English widow, who had been her own birth mother's foster mother, from babyhood to 1957, when she went to her mother and step-father in Libya. "I have a lot of compassion for my natural mother, but my foster mother was the one who was there when I needed her. There comes a time when you have to admit you are your own person, and nothing you are, or do, can be blamed on your parents" (Telegraph Magazine, 10 April 1993).

Her credits include Shadowlands, Surviving Picasso, Eureka, The Asphyx, Murder by Moonlight, Seal Morning, Lady Jane, Spirit of the Dead, The Dark Angel, and Piaf.
