Crome played the lead, Coleen, in Birger Larsen's BAFTA Award-winning (2013) production of Murder for BBC2. Alison Graham said in The Radio Times: "...it stayed with me for days, dammit. Every brittle little shard of it, thanks largely to one of the most astounding, affecting acting performances I have ever seen, from rising star Karla Crome as Coleen..."
On 22 May 2012, it was announced that Crome would appear in the fourth series of E4 drama Misfits in the regular role of Jess.
Crome appears in ITV five-part series Lightfields as Clare. Again, she has received excellent reviews for her performance with Matt D. saying: "...the standout was definitely Karla Crome, who has shone in everything from Murder to Misfits, here playing the emotionally damaged Claire..."
She has also joined the cast of BBC series Prisoners' Wives for the show's second series, playing the role of Aisling.
In February 2014, it was revealed that Crome would be joining the cast of CBS' Under the Dome as a series regular for the show's second season.
