Multi-talented, fiercely committed and independently minded, Lauren Ambrose made a considerable impression on television viewers during her run on the critically acclaimed comedy-drama, "Six Feet Under" (HBO, 2001-05). Once an aspiring opera singer, she began acting off-Broadway and on television prior to gaining notice with roles in features like "Can't Hardly Wait" (1998) and the cult-favorite "Psycho Beach Party" (2000). But it was her portrayal of the somber, artistically-inclined Claire Fisher on Alan Ball's edgy HBO series that soon won her accolades from industry insiders and fans alike. Ambrose honed her craft with theatre performances in the years that followed the show's finale, appearing with Geoffrey Rush and Susan Sarandon in a revival of Eugene Ionesco's "Exit the King" in 2009. Following a delightfully against type recurring role as an ethically bankrupt PR executive on the sci-fi miniseries "Torchwood: Miracle Day" (Starz, 2011), the actress stunned critics and audiences with her emotionally raw portrayal of a mother pushed to desperation in "Think of Me" (2011). Boasting an impressive and diverse list of credits for such a young career, Ambrose was poised to become one of Hollywood's most respected actresses.
