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.
