LAURA ACTUALLY WANTED TO BE A SURGEON (BUT CAN YOU IMAGINE OITNB WITHOUT LAURA? NEITHER CAN WE!)
Most actors and actresses stick to any job that pays the bills until they get a leading role in a Hollywood sitcom or movie. Even if many of them end up working as waiters and waitresses for a while, most of them are pretty sure that acting is their only professional choice. But Prepon wasn’t like that.
It turns out that she had once considered becoming a surgeon, just like her father, who sadly passed away when she was a kid.
So, if she hadn’t ended up working in Hollywood, she might have been a doctor. Still, Laura could make her dream come true, at least partially, if she lands a role on a medical drama like Grey’s Anatomy.
