Where You've Seen Her: This gorgeous Chicago native is an industry triple threat: actress, singer, and model. A Northwestern graduate, Carter studied musical theater and received opera training in Los Angeles, New York, and throughout Europe. In addition to small film and TV parts (including a brief arc on your favorite show, The Bold and the Beautiful), Lauren can be seen playing in ill-fated songstress named Camille in the forthcoming film The Green Mile, a jazz-age love story—and not an intense prison drama starring Michael Clarke Duncan and Tom Hanks.
