Linda Eve Miller
Though anonymous to all but the most eagle-eyed observer of on-screen talent, actress Linda Eve Miller worked steadily in features and television over the course of a two-decade career that took her from oddball independent films to major studio features like "Turner & Hooch" (1989). The majority of her screen appearances were made in primetime network television, which again ranged from bit parts on shows like "Carnivale" (HBO, 2003-2005), to major supporting roles in series like Dick Wolf's revamp of "Dragnet" (NBC, 2003-2004). Her most consistent work was featured on "Grey's Anatomy," which employed her as a nurse for nearly all of its first seven years on the air. That sort of consistency underscored Linda Eve Miller's dependability as a performer, which did much to overshadow her status as an acting unknown.Miller's screen acting career began with a minor role in the Tom Hanks comedy "Turner & Hooch," which remained her most high profile big screen effort. She later enjoyed a relatively major role in "Shakespeare's Plan 12 from Outer Space" (1991), a bizarre mash-up of classic theater and the works of cult filmmaker Ed Wood that went mostly unseen outside of arthouse or indie circles. She also appeared opposite Mary Woronov in Todd Hughes "The New Women" (2001), a curious blend of post-apocalyptic science fiction and overripe pulp plotting. From there, Miller moved on to guest appearances in bit roles for television series like "Carnivale," before settling into a recurring role as an unnamed desk and emergency room nurse on "Grey's Anatomy." She also received positive reviews for her turn as gossip columnist Ann Adams in a 2002 production of Joshua Rebell's "Gatsby in Hollywood" at the Met Theater in Los Angeles.
