Jericho Article

Q&A with Beth Grant (Gracie Leigh)

1. What inspired you to become an actress?

I was inspired to be an actress because my mother loved the movies and wanted to be an actress. She taught me a song, "Oh, Where Have You Been Billy Boy, Billy Boy" which I sang to my uncle when he came home from the Navy in Korea. His eyes light up and he smiled so big. I was hooked on the light in his eyes.

2. What is your favorite color?

Teal (blue green) is my favorite color.

3. What is your favorite thing about working on Jericho?

Skeet Ulrich is my favorite thing about Jericho!! What a beautiful man, inside and out.

4. Any advice for aspiring actors?

I always tell new actors to study, study study. Get in a class, join a theatre group. Do one play after another. Build a rolodex of friends and supporters. Persistence, belief, self confidence. How do you get true self confidence? Action. Scene study, plays, experience.

5. Is there any backstory info you can give us about Gracie Leigh or her relationship with Dale?

The writers didn't tell us much about the back story, so I may be wrong, but I believe that Gracie knew Dale's mom and knew that she was always off, chasing a man and that he needed some adult guidance. That's why she offered him the job at the store. And she taught him how to "rise above." Gracie's own husband left her and she never had children, so Dale was her only family. I guess if they do flashbacks, we might find out more.

6. Do you have any pets?

I have a dog, Angel and 4 cats, Mary Kitty, Michael Kitty, Rainbow and Doughnut. Grandma Kitty passed away last year.

7. Do you still watch the show?

I LOVE Jericho and can't wait to see what happens next. I think jake is going to really emerge as a great leader. He's got it all going on!

8. Which job, not counting Jericho, was your favorite?

I loved doing DONNIE DARKO. The script, the director/writer, Richard Kelly, is a genius. I'm also in his new film, SOUTHLAND TALES which I hear will be out in the fall.

9. Did you grow up in a small town or big city, and did you like it?

We moved around a lot when I was a child. I mostly lived in a mid-sized city of 50,000 people. But I've lived in small towns and cities. All over.

10. Which movie actor would you choose to star in a movie about your life?

The only actor who looks like me is my daughter, who is just getting started at 14. She played the younger me in a movie that should be out this year called NATURAL DISASTERS. She had 4 scenes, no lines, but she was great. I honestly can't think of a star that could play me.
