Lauren Stamile Excited For Grey's Anatomy Story Line

by 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 Picture

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.

It's totally not Lauren Stamile, but Rose at best is a very poorly written character. Every scene she has been in thus far has been a cheese factor plot device. Grey's has too many cast members as is and the thought that in true Shonda fashion this character "could" at some point become a regular is frightening to me in terms of how the writing continues to go this season. Just watched a sneak peak of the Rose and Derek characters for part two of Crash Into Me and all I can say is it is such a forced and poorly written scene (wait until you see it, you'll understand) that I actually felt sorry for the actress and Dempsey for having to act in it. I am sure this is a gig of a lifetime for Stamile and who wouldn't want it? But the writers have sadly dropped the ball with the Rose character. No chemistry with Dempsey and the plot line is beyond bad. Hopefully what is great about the Derek character is not ruined by this ill conceived idea of yet another triangle. Grey's writers/creators: WAKE UP!! Adding more characters that are unneeded cannot cover the poor writing. Fix that and you won't have a need for going back to a triangle you've hit more than once on this show. Grey's deserves better and so do the fans who love the show. Sorry, but Rose has to go.

Lauren seems great, it's Rose that I don't like. They say she will be here for at LEAST 4 epis, but that could mean she's here for more (though I'm reaaaaaally hoping she isn't). I agree with MerDerAddicted, she should've been cast as Derek's sister. She totally would've been believable!

Go away! stupid rose, meredith tells derek she doesnt want him to date anybody else than her... derek better quit foolin around with stupid rose and stick with meredith! JUST GO AWAY! shes only here for 4 episodes...so thats good sign that derek and meredith will be together! but ill be very angry if they have derek making a 'hard' decision by having to choose mer or rose! hes all ready had to do that, and meredith has done that too. please just let them be happy, it'll make be happy, too!

She should have been cast as his sister not a love interest for Derek. I'm a MerDer supporter to the end.

it seems that grey's becomes more like "The Bold and the Beautiful" it's getting boring and inconsistent!! just don't understand the writers... if you compare the first two seasons with the end of the 3. ... these storylilnes are just needless

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.

Meredith
