Although best known for playing the timid but trustworthy Dr. Lexie Grey on the ABC medical drama "Grey's Anatomy" (2005- ), Chyler Leigh had a long and illustrious film and TV career spanning nearly two decades and over a dozen credits. A natural beauty with delicate features and a girl next door-like appeal, Leigh's acting career took off in her late teens, when she started to land recurring roles on shows like "Safe Harbor" (The WB, 1999) and "7th Heaven" (The CW/The WB, 1996-2007), as well as a starring turn in the 2001 spoof-comedy, "Not Another Teen Movie." Leigh continued landing roles on short-lived series throughout the early 2000s, before landing her breakout role on "Grey's Anatomy" in 2007. Leigh played Dr. Grey for four seasons on "Grey's," while racking up legions of new fans and admirers. When her character was unexpectedly killed off on the very last episode of season eight, an outcry ensued from some of the show's most ardent supporters. However, Leigh later released a statement in which she explained her decision to leave the show was to ensure she could spend more time with her growing family. After leaving "Grey's" in the spring of 2012, Leigh reappeared in the 2013 TV movie, "Window Wonderland" (Hallmark Channel), thus ensuring fans that her yearlong hiatus from acting was merely temporary.
