Lauren was a model before she became an actress.
Lauren's favorite Supernatural character to work with is Gordon Walker played by Sterling K. Brown. One of her favorite episodes to watch is "Skin" from the show's first season. It was where Dean had a doppelganger and had to kill it.

Coming from England, Lauren had only seen one episode of Supernatural before auditioning for the show.
Lauren learned fencing while she was doing Van Wilder 2: The Rise of Taj and archery while filming The Quiet Assassin. She also learned how to use guns during her stint in Supernatural.

Lauren takes kick boxing classes.
Lauren has worked in the following movies: The Quiet Assassin, Casanova, Van Wilder 2: The Rise of Taj, Young Alexander the Great.

Lauren: I was born in Philadelphia, I lived in New Jersey for a short time, and then I moved to England, when I was a kid. And then, I recently moved to L.A. I'm American by birth, and English by accent. I grew up just outside London, in Surrey.
Lauren: I'm not religious, but the tradition, the culture and the history are very important to me.
Lauren: (about what she likes to do in her spare time) See my family, that is the most important. Otherwise, anything that involves bicycles, peaceful venues or the big wide open.
Lauren: I don't recall ever deciding to pursue a career in acting.
Lauren: (on "Supernatural" fans' pre-judgments about having two new female characters on the show, to be played by her and Katie Cassidy) As far as the fans being wary of us coming on, I think it's exciting! The fans are dedicated and it's a challenge for us to live up. It's wonderful to be part of a show where the audience cares that much about the characters.
Lauren: (on choosing between Sam and Dean of "Supernatural") They're both pretty cute though. One has the hair, the other has the jaw. One has got the stubble, the other one has the super height. Let's put it this way, neither one is a bad bird really. [Laughs]
Lauren: I have a very weak stomach for horror. I need curtains on the front windows of my house because that heightens the whole fear factor.
Lauren: (on feeling welcomed and accepted as a new member of the "Supernatural" cast) You would think it might be a little weird to come into a show after it has been on for awhile but everyone was really nice and gracious and right away made me feel like their little sister.
Lauren: I really miss doing stage though, I really do. I actually prefer that, hands down to anything else and I can do it in bits and pieces but it's not that easy to commit to a play. Life's much easier if you can get work in TV or film so I don't know. I'll have a summer hiatus so maybe that's when I can do it.
Lauren: (about her auditions for Ruby in "Supernatural") It's actually kind of funny, because I went in playing American Ruby, and then I went back and read for Bela.
Lauren: (about her character in "Supernatural") My character is being brought on to compete with the boys.
Lauren Cohan: (on her character in "Supernatural") These characters are ass-kickers. My character, Bella, was brought on to compete with the boys. She's a mercenary, so she's out as a solo artist. She has her own agenda. She's very centered and focused on what she's doing. She has commands from people who need a lot of the same stuff the boys need, but she sells it, and she's very much about negotiating. Sparks may fly between Bella and the boys. Sparks may fly between Ruby and the boys. You'll just have to wait to find out. But, I think there's going to be some fighting, before there's ever any romance.
