Lauren Lee Smith (born June 19, 1980) is a Canadian actress.
Smith was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The stepdaughter of a documentary filmmaker, Lauren travelled around the world with her family. Lauren attended Henry James Cambie Secondary School. When she was 14, her family moved to Los Angeles, California. There, she began a modelling career. She is the cousin of actor Myles Ferguson who died in a car accident in 2000 at the age of 19.
At the age of 19, she was cast in a featured role in the remake of Get Carter. Smith has also appeared in such works as Christy: Return to Cutter Gap, Christy: A Change of Seasons and Christy: A New Beginning and starred in the show Mutant X, where she played the character of Emma deLauro. She has also guest-starred in episodes of Dead Zone, The Twilight Zone, and Blade: The Series, among others. Smith was also a recurring character in the Showtime drama series The L Word, playing Sous-chef Lara Perkins. In 2005, Smith filmed the sexually explicit movie Lie with Me, where she played the character of Leila.
In 2008, Lauren starred in the film Pathology and became a series regular in the ninth season on the CBS hit show CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. She joined Grissom's team as Riley Adams, "a smart, flirtatious, and witty non-conformist who entered law enforcement to rebel against her judgmental psychiatrist father." However, due to creative differences on the show, the character did not return for the tenth season.
She married German photographer Erik Steingröver on April 4, 2009.
