Lauren Lee Smith Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jun 19, 1980
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Initially known for her multi-telefilm portrayal of Christy Huddleston, the young woman who accepts a teaching position in rural Cutter Gap, NC, and begins educating the ignorant locals -- a role she inherited from [[Performer~P45985~Kellie Martin~kelliemartin]], the star of the mid-'90s TV series -- actress Lauren Lee Smith simultaneously defied any related attempts to pigeonhole her as a family-friendly actress by branching out into much grittier and edgier material. Role choices included that of a psychic mutant in the sci-fi series [[Feature~V261763~Mutant X~mutantx[tvseries]]] (2001-2004), a nymphomaniac in the racy [[Feature~V309219~Lie With Me~liewithme]] (2005), a lesbian cook on the Showtime drama series [[Feature~V301901~The L Word~thelword[tvseries]]] (2004-2006), a "beat" girl in [[Performer~P118083~Terry Zwigoff~terryzwigoff]]'s misanthropic comedy drama [[Feature~V308659~Art School Confidential~artschoolconfidential]] (2006), and a homicidal med student in the thriller [[Feature~V389401~Pathology~pathology]] (2008). In the years to come, Smith would remain active on screen, appearing on shows like CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Good Dog, and The Listener. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
