She has Dutch roots
Lauren was born in Huntington Beach, California. Her Dutch roots are from her paternal grandfather, who was born in Amsterdam in 1909. He then moved to the United States as a child and later married an English woman.
Lauren went to the Los Alamitos High School before landing a spot at the Orange County High School of the Arts. After that, she went to study anthropology at the University of Southern California. Lauren was probably influenced by her father to take the science route in campus. Her father is a vascular surgeon.
She is an experienced actor
Lauren remained focused in school, but she couldn’t resist the allure of an acting career. She began her career by making appearances in theatre productions such as Peter Pan and Oliver.
After several theatre performances, Lauren decided that it was time to audition for TV and film roles. She made her film debut when she appeared in the romantic comedy Down To You. She played a minor role in the film, but she got to feature alongside stars such as Julia Stiles, Shawn Hatosy, and Freddie Prinze Jr..
Her next role came in 2002 when she appeared in the adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ novel, A Walk to Remember. She then appeared in bit-part roles in the films Dead Above Ground and The Lone Ranger. A year later, she auditioned for the role of Erin in a remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. However Erin’s role went to Jessica Biel, and Lauren booked the role of a suicidal hitchhiker.
Her first main role came in the series, Sex, Love & Secrets. She then appeared in the movies Spin, Love And Mary, Hostel: Part II, Made for Each Other, and many more. From 2011 to 2012, Lauren played the role of agent Lori Weston in Hawaii Five-O. Over the next two years, she portrayed Leslie Shay in the drama Chicago Fire.
In 2016, she teamed up with Tom Ellis in the comedy drama Lucifer.
She is pushing to have Lucifer renewed for Season 6
Lucifer originally premiered on 25th January 2016 on Fox. The show ran for three seasons through which it acquired a huge global following known as ‘Lucifans’. However, much to the dismay of fans, Fox announced that the show would end after the 3rd season. In a bid to save the show, fans led a ‘Save Lucifer’ campaign, which convinced Netflix to acquire rights to the show.
The 4th season commenced on 8th May 2019. Netflix then announced that the 5th season would be show’s final season. Many fans were unhappy with the news that their favorite show would come to an end after the release of season 5. However, fans didn’t expect Lauren to rally them to push for another season.
A week after the announcement, Lauren posted a tweet stating;
“#Lucifans If you want a season 6 or more let it be heard. We love that you love #Lucifer your support on social media is cherished and important. And if it’s only season 5… I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. We won’t let you down. But if you want more let everyone know.”
This tweet led to the formation of an online petition to renew Lucifer for an extra season. The petition gained a lot of signatures, but it is unclear whether Netflix will listen to the fans.
Many want another season of the show, but some fans don’t feel like fighting for Lucifer again. The general feeling among these fans is that they feel like they are fighting for something that the cast and crew don’t want to participate in.
Lucifans certainly hope that season 5 is not the end.
She has a great relationship with Tom Ellis
Lucifer is a series that revolves around Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis). Lucifer is the devil, but he gets tired of running hell, and he moves to Los Angeles, where runs a nightclub. He eventually becomes a consultant to the LAPD. Lucifer slowly develops a love interest in LAPD Detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German).
Ellis and Lauren share incredible chemistry in the show, and that is part of the reason why fans keep coming back. On the show, Lucifer is literally the devil, and he spends a lot of his time hitting on women and participating in orgies. However, it looks like his interest in Chloe more than just physical. The devil falls in love with an earthling, and Chloe reciprocates those feelings. However, fans of the show know that the romance doesn’t end well.
Lauren’s chemistry with Ellis extends to the real world. The pals are really tight, as Lauren explained in an interview with Assignment X;
“Oh, he’s the best. I’ve been so lucky in my life with costars. Taylor Kenney and Jesse Spencer are still my very close friends, Monica Raymund is my best girlfriend, but Tom is the most lovely person. He is so kind and giving. I love him.”
In real life, Ellis and Lauren are very close friends. On the show, fans hope that the couple’s love continues to blossom.
She is secretive about her dating life
Lauren prefers to keep her dating life a secret, and so people don’t know much about her love life. However, she isn’t immune to the rumors that most celebrities face concerning their love lives.
After playing the role of a lesbian in Chicago Fire, rumors emerged claiming that she was a lesbian. German addressed the rumors in an interview with AfterEllen;
“I mean love is love, and I personally would approach it no differently,” I’ve played a few lesbians, and I have gay and lesbian friends, and I don’t think it’s really any different. It’s almost like asking a straight character ‘how do you play straight?’ You’re just attracted to what you are attracted to. It’s really just playing whatever’s going on in the scene.”
Lauren has also been linked with several men including Adam Brody. In 2007, Adam and Lauren were reportedly spotted kissing soon after Adam split up with her long-term girlfriend Rachel Bilson. However, the rumors died down after a couple of months.
Soon after those rumors ended, various media outlets linked Lauren to The Divided actor Ashton Holmes. However, there was no confirmation from either party that they were dating. Ashton and Lauren look to be close friends. They regularly engage in twitter conversations which suggest that they maintain a close friendship.
She wants to appear in diverse roles
Lauren has been a professional actor for almost two decades now, and she has appeared in many diverse roles. However, she still wants to appear in other different roles. Lauren is tired of appearing in roles that require her to kill someone or to kill herself.
Although she enjoys the intensity that these roles offer, she wants to appear in something more relaxed. She would enjoy appearing in a comedy film or a comedy series. There is no doubt that Lauren would ace any role she books. Her combination of talent and experience would make her any casting director’s dream.
Lauren is also a very dedicated actor. She doesn’t mind doing her own stunts whenever the opportunity arises. For instance, she did her own stunts in the horror film Hostel: Part II. It is an amazing feat for someone who admitted that she occasionally trips over her heels and falls over horses.
German’s fans will follow her to any genre she chooses. She has already demonstrated the ability to wow audiences in a wide variety of roles. There’s a lot more to come from Lauren, and we can’t wait for it.
