Lauren Stamile Excited For Grey's Anatomy Story Line

at . Comments

Newcomer Lauren Stamile, who joined Grey's Anatomy on November 15 as feisty nurse Rose, will stick around for at least four more episodes to play Derek "McDreamy" Shepherd's new love interest, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Lauren Stamile was cast in September and, as expected, was over the moon about the possibility of acting with Patrick Dempsey, albeit slightly shocked.

Lauren Stamile is excited - and nervous - about her role on Grey's.

"It was like, are you kidding me? I'm kind of geeky. I hope people aren't disappointed," said Stamile, 31, a native of Oklahoma and graduate of Northwestern.

It's unclear when Lauren Stamile's fourth episode will air; it's also the last remaining original episode of Grey's Anatomy that ABC had in production before creator Shonda Rhimes and her team of writers joined the picket line November 4.

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."

I gotta go. You stay here. You are a gifted surgeon with an extraordinary mind. Don’t let what he wants eclipse what you need. He’s very dreamy, but he’s not the sun. You are.
