'The Secret Circle' gains 'Community's' Lauren Stamile as a new psychic friend

lauren-stamile-headshot.jpg "The Secret Circle" has gone quiet for the remainder of 2011, but that doesn't mean we're sleeping on the job when it comes to bringing you the latest from Chance Harbor. Zap2it has exclusively confirmed that Lauren Stamile has joined the cast as Lucy.

Lucy, who we'll first meet in episode 113, is a psychic with ties not only to Cassie's slain mother, Amelia... but also to her mysterious dark magic father, John Blackwell.

In the mid-season finale, we learned that Blackwell may have fathered another member of the Circle, so hopefully Lucy will be able to shed some light on the subject.

Stamile most recently starred as Agent Pearce in eight episodes of USA's "Burn Notice," and we loved her funny turn as Professor Michelle Slater, who hooked up with Jeff (Joel McHale) on "Community." For us, though, she's best known as Nurse Rose, McDreamy's McRebound on "Grey's Anatomy." Poor Rose. She never had a chance.

UPDATE: A previous version of this article said that Stamile would first appear in episode 112. While the character of Lucy does appear in 112, Stamile won't show up until 113. Things that make you go "Hmmmm." Any theories?
