I am curious if the following is the correct grammatically?

"кто играет роль Лары?" (Lara's role)

Is there a more common expression tha would fit better?

Yes, that's correct. You may also shorten this like: "Кто играет Лару?", or maybe even "Кто Лара?", if the context allows to do this without any ambiguity. But these are just colloquial "shortcuts" for the above.


I think it's better to say:

Кто исполняет роль Лары?


This is correct. You can also say "Кто играет Лару / Гамлета / короля?"
