In 2022, Lydia also had a role in The Pentaverate which is a comedy miniseries created by Mike Myers. 2022 was a busy year for Lydia as her third project was called Inside Man, a BBC drama starring David Tennant, Stanley Tucci and Lydia too.

This year Lydia is in a film called It’s All Coming Back To Me as well as two further projects which are yet to be announced for TV and film.
