In 1992 she appeared in the film Carry On Columbus and followed it up in 1996 with an appearance in the BBC/WGBH comedy Heavy Weather written by P.G. Wodehouse and starring Peter O'Toole. She has appeared in a number of theatre productions including a season with Alan Ayckbourn in Terry Johnson's Dead Funny in the West End and Amy's View by David Hare.

Lacey and her husband Paul Harrison have a son, Charlie, born in November 2002, and a daughter, Betsy, born also in November of 2005. She has also appeared supporting the One campaign founded by actress Claire Goose's brother Duncan, selling bottled water in order to fund projects to provide clean drinking water around the world particularly in Africa. The campaign advert featured Lacey, Claire Goose, David Tennant, Hugo Speer and Ian Kelsey. She has also provided a number of TV advertising voiceovers.
