Lauren White Interview

AFTERBUZZ TV – AfterBuzz TV’s Mini Spotlight edition, is a short form interview series featuring actors & artists discussing their roles and shows as well as their thoughts, passions and journeys. In this episode host Nick Mardi interviews Lauren White.

Actress, Lauren White has a supporting role opposite Diane Lane in the final season of Netflix House of Cards and would love to appear on Afterbuzz TV for a Mini-Spotlight interview.

She’s also a thrill-seeking ghost hunter in director Dean Alioto’s indie horror film, Portal, and she plays a single woman with no plans for marriage or motherhood in the web comedy series, Partners in Wine.

A native of Baltimore, Maryland, White graduated from North Carroll High School and received her undergraduate degree in communications from Western Maryland College. She later received her master’s degree in biomechanics, kinesiology and physiology from McDaniel College.

White first performed in front of a VHS camera when she produced her own television show at ten. She did some theater work in high school and college, but her introduction to show business began with field promotional work. While also earning a living as a personal trainer, she began demonstrating new products at trade shows, auto shows, boat shows and conventions – touring for such companies as Dr. Pepper, Humana Health Insurance and Nintendo – a job that took her all over the U.S. This promotional work soon led her to becoming a spokesperson, which began to interest her in expanding her creative juices.

White’s epiphany came when she and Jon Ingle produced Little Bits,a lively 40-episode sketch comedy web series, in which she wrote, directed, produced, edited and acted, playing a wide variety of comical characters. Shortly thereafter, she made her prime-time television-acting debut in Parks and Recreation, in which she played a socialite opposite Amy Poehler, Adam Scott and Aubrey Plaza.

Her additional television credits include: That’s What She SaidAmerica’s Most Wanted: America Fights BackHappily Never After, and Saigon Broadcasting Television Network.

White also got a chance to exercise her creative skills, when she was cast in The Office of Doom, a film spoof of The Office that was completed as part ofa 48-hour film competition, with White playing an office secretary with super powers.
