Lauren Bowles will be playing Merlotte’s newest waitress this August on HBO’s runaway hit True Blood. She will appear in the remainder of season 3 and has signed for all of Season 4. Lauren is the younger half-sister of actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus and married to scene-stealing character actor Patrick Fischler (Mad Men, Dinner for Schmucks, etc.) Lauren got her start on Seinfeld as a waitress and has since appeared in prime-time on everything from CSI and Grey’s Anatomy, to Arrested Development and Veronica Mars. On film, Lauren will next be seen this February in the Farrelly Brothers’ Hall Pass playing “the rich bitch” opposite Owen Wilson and Christina Applegate.
