Lara Lee Candie-Fitzwilly is the widowed sister of Calvin Candie with whom he may or may not have an incestuous relationship. Candie and his sister, Lara, have dinner with Leonide Moguy, Django, Schultz. During the dinner, Schultz's agreement with the mandingos goes instantly well and he also wants to buy the German-speaking Broomhilda, claiming that he has missed speaking in his native tongue. Stephen, suspicious of Broomhilda and Django, taunts her about Django and becomes fully aware of her being the wife of Django. Stephen then chats with Candie, informing him that Broomhilda is Django's wife and she is the Schultz's real interest, not the mandingo. Candie, now aware, tells his sister to leave, then becomes nervous at first and shows Django and Schultz his deceased slave's skull. He breaks the skull with a knife and orders Stephen to bring out Broomhilda. He then becomes enraged that he threatens to kill Broomhilda in front of them unless they can afford to pay the $12,000 to buy her freedom. Schultz agrees.
After Calvin's death, Lara conspires with Stephen to send Django to a mining company to work him to death as revenge for her brother's death. However, after escaping the mining company and finishing off Calvin's remaining men, Django shoots Lara in the chest as retribution for sending him to the mining company. Laura Cayouette portrays Lara while Lady Gaga was previously considered for the role.
Lara is first seen exiting the Candie Manor when Calvin calls out for her, quote: "Where is my beautiful sister! There she is!". Calvin then introduces her to Django and Dr. Schultz as a wealthy, attractive Southern belle who was recently widowed. Calvin compliments her a "sweet tonic for the tired eyes" before kissing her on the cheek.
Lara has blue eyes, long, red curly hair, and fair skin. She's often wearing a beautiful gown and statement jewelry such as large earrings and gold necklaces.
