Lauren Lee Smith is a Canadian actress best known for her recurring television roles as Emma deLauro in Mutant X and as sous-chef Lara Perkins in The L Word.

She also stars as Sergeant Michelle McCluskey in the supernatural drama series The Listener.

Smith seamlessly transitioned to films by co-starring in Terry Zwigoff's film Art School Confidential for Sony Classics opposite Max Minghella, and from there co-starred as Casey Affleck's partner in the Sony film, The Last Kiss, directed by Tony Goldwyn.

Most notably, Smith received much praise and attention for her performance as an outgoing and very sexual woman in the independent award-winning film directed by Clement Virgo, Lie With Me, in which she had the leading role.

In 2009, Smith worked aside Laurence Fishburne as CSI Riley Adams on Season 9 of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. 2009 also saw Smith at Sundance appearing in Sandra Nettlebeck's Helen starring Ashley Judd - which Smith won a LEO Award for.

To stir things up a little, the tail end of 2009 had Smith spending three months in Germany filming Philip Kadelbeck's epic period piece, Hindenburg.

In 2010, Smith started the year filming Terry Miles' independent feature, A Night for Dying Tigers, reuniting her with L Word co-star Jennifer Beals and co-starring with fellow Vancouver native Gil Bellows, Kathleen Robertson and Tygh Runyan.

Smith also stars in Ken Finkleman's comedy series Good Dog, which is produced by Shaftesbury Films.
