Actress Lauren Stamile proved to be a dependable presence on television thanks to a string of recurring roles on such critical and viewer hits as "Grey's Anatomy (ABC, 2005- ), "Community" (NBC, 2009- ) and "Burn Notice" (USA Network, 2007-2013). The Oklahoma native began her career on the New York stage before making the journey west to Los Angeles, where she found semi-regular work as a guest performer on various series. Stamile earned excellent notices as a terminal patient on an episode of "Scrubs" (NBC, 2001-2010), which led to recurring work on the aforementioned series. She played similar roles on both "Grey's Anatomy" and "Community" - a speed bump on the romantic paths of Patrick Dempsey and Ellen Pompeo in the former, and Joel McHale and Gillian Jacobs in the latter - though Stamile's talent allowed her to imbue these roles with distinctly different personalities. The flintiness of her "Community" role may have informed her casting on "Burn Notice" as a tough CIA agent, which further increased her profile. Though not a well-known star, Stamile's performances and impressive c.v. marked her as a talent to watch on the television landscape.
The Actor’s Center
Appeared in television spots for JC Penny, Volkswagen and Old Spice.
Consulted her parents on medical issues for her appearances on "Grey's Anatomy." Their biggest gripe with the show was the characters' penchant for ducking into closets to make out.
Has studied tai chi.
Has said in interviews that if she was not an actress, she would open her own holistic center.
"It's hard to be heard when you have (so) many brothers and sisters, especially when you're in the middle. I would always make up little scenarios that were not real. I was kind of introverted as a kid and when I started to explore (acting), it gave me a chance to have a voice." - from www.hobotrashcan.com, Aug. 3, 2010
