Biography for Maggie Grace

Margaret Grace Denig (born sep. 21, 1983 (35 years ago)), known professionally as Maggie Grace, is an American actress. Originally from Worthington, Ohio, she dropped out of high school to move to Los Angeles, California with her mother after her parents' divorce. While struggling financially, she landed her first role as the titular character in the web-based video series Rachel's Room in 2001 (17 years ago). She went on to earn a Young Artist Award nomination in 2002 (16 years ago) with her portrayal of 15-year-old murder victim Martha Moxley in the TV movie Murder in Greenwich.

In 2004 (14 years ago) Grace was cast as Shannon Rutherford in the TV series Lost, on which she was a main cast member for the first two seasons, winning a Screen Actors Guild Award shared with the ensemble cast. Leaving the series, Grace was keen to work more prominently in movie having starred opposite Tom Welling in The Fog in 2005 (13 years ago). She appeared in Suburban Girl, The Jane Austen Book Club (both 2007 (11 years ago)), and Taken (2008, 10 years ago). She has completed production in the lead role of Alice in MAlice In Wonderland (2 walls), an upcoming modern take on Lewis Carroll's novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

Early years

Grace was born Margaret Grace Denig in Worthington, Ohio, the second of three children to parents Valinn and Rick Denig, who ran a family jewelry business. Her family lived in a 200-year-old house, the first saltbox house in central Ohio. She attended Worthington Christian School from kindergarten through ninth grade and briefly attended Thomas Worthington High School, where she began acting in school plays and community theater, including a Jewish Community Center's Gallery Players' 2000 (18 years ago) production of The Crucible. Her parents divorced "amicably" when she was 16 years old, but her mother sought a "fresh start". Grace dropped out of high school to move to Los Angeles, California with her mother, while her younger siblings Ian and Marisa continued to live with their father. In Los Angeles, Grace and her mother moved around often as they struggled financially, taking out short-term rents rather than paying for permanent residence while eating a basic diet as it was all they could afford.


Grace acquired an agent within a week of relocating to Los Angeles and enrolled in acting classes. She landed her first role in Rachel's Room, a 2001 (17 years ago) web-based video series about the affairs inside a teenage girl's bedroom that was created by Dawson's Creek executive producer Paul Stupin. Her next role was on the 2002 (16 years ago) TV series Septuplets, which was cancelled before the first episode had aired. Her breakout role was on 2002's TV movie Murder in Greenwich, based on the true story of 15-year-old Martha Moxley's murder. She was nominated for a Young Artist Award for her portrayal of Moxley in the Best Performance in a TV Movie, Miniseries or Special – Leading Young Actress category, but lost to Clara Bryant for Tru Confessions. She went on to feature in minor roles on the TV series CSI: Miami, The Lyon's Den, Miracles, Like Family, Cold Case and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and the movies Twelve Mile Road and Creature Unknown, before appearing in a season-long recurring role on Oliver Beene as a Swedish exchange student.

In mid-2004, Grace's agent sent her the script for the pilot episode of Lost; she was given the role of Shannon Rutherford after a very successful audition. She was nominated in 2005 (13 years ago) for a Teen Choice Award for Choice TV Breakout Performance – Female for her role on Lost, but lost to Desperate Housewives' Eva Longoria. She lived in Hawaii during the filming of the show's first season, and signed on to star opposite Tom Welling in The Fog, a 2005 (13 years ago) remake of the 1980 (38 years ago) horror movie of the same name, as a character originally played by Jamie Lee Curtis. Though the filming of Lost was supposed to have ended before The Fog began, the productions coincided due to Lost's extended season finale and Grace flew between the two sets, on Hawaiian the island of Oahu and on Bowen Island in British Columbia, Canada. After ranking at #27 on Maxim's Hot 100 list of 2005 (13 years ago), she returned for Lost's second season. Her character was killed off the series in the season's eighth episode, "Collision" when the series' writers began to feel that the character's "story avenues [were] limited". Executive producer Carlton Cuse said that Grace's departure from the show was "sort of a win-win" as she was eager to enter a full-time career in film. After leaving the series, she nevertheless joined the other principal Lost cast members of season 2 onstage at the 12th Screen Actors Guild Awards where Lost won the award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.

Variety reported in May 2005 (13 years ago) that Grace was in negotiations to play X-Men character Kitty Pryde in the 2006 (12 years ago) movie X-Men: The Last Stand (22 walls), but in July, auditions were reportedly being held for her replacement. The role ultimately went to Ellen Page (12 walls), and Grace later revealed that she had never been contacted about the role and was surprised to read that she was up for the part in question. Grace's next role was in the 2007 (11 years ago) independent movie Suburban Girl, alongside Sarah Michelle Gellar (29 walls) and Alec Baldwin. In 2007 (11 years ago), she starred in The Jane Austen Book Club, based on Karen Joy Fowler's novel of the same name. She is a fan of Jane Austen and had read Fowler's novel when it was released in 2004 (14 years ago). When she was given the film's script, she met with the director Robin Swicord, with whom she says she "geeked out", and was given the role of Allegra, an openly lesbian 20-year-old. After the filming of The Jane Austen Book Club was completed, Grace briefly returned to Hawaii to shoot a guest spot on the Lost season 3 episode "Exposé". She starred in the 2008 (10 years ago) thriller movie Taken with Liam Neeson, who was at the top of a list of male actors Grace wished to work with that she had written just two months before she was cast. She has completed production of Simon Fellows' upcoming movie MAlice In Wonderland (2 walls), a modern adaptation of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. She has begun production on Flying Lessons and has been cast opposite Tom Cruise (12 walls) and Cameron Diaz (31 walls) in James Mangold's upcoming untitled project.

Personal life

Grace lived in Honolulu, Hawaii while working on Lost, saying "I love it here, but it's not a place you can really pursue acting." She claimed that, while living in Hawaii, her Lost co-stars would introduce her to men and that some "would probably have me with a different guy every night". She said that her male co-stars were "mostly very protective" and "very opinionated" when deciding whether she should date certain men; actor Josh Holloway once offered to help her select dates from a portfolio of male models with whom he previously worked. Grace and Ian Somerhalder, her onscreen stepbrother, were rumored to be dating in Apr. 2006 (12 years ago) after both had left Lost. When asked about Somerhalder in August, she stated, "Ian's great, I adore him, although I'm only 22 – far too young to even think about having a serious relationship.". While still working on Lost, Grace and Somerhalder adopted a feral cat named Roo which they found "literally dying" in the jungle on the set. She said that the cat is now her "travel buddy". Since 2008 (10 years ago) she has been dating Blake Mycoskie, founder of TOMS Shoes, with whom she lives on a boat off the coast of Los Angeles.

Grace says that the person she is most inspired by is her mother. When asked about her closest friend, she said that she and her mother were more like sisters and that she is "lucky to have an exceptionally cool mum". She is a self-proclaimed anglophile, having written to a pen pal in the Lake District from the age of eight, having first visited England at 13 years old, and admiring a number of English poets as well as William Shakespeare. She calls herself very clumsy, claiming to "trip over my legs all the time", and was jokingly nicknamed "Maggie Graceless" by one of her former castmates. She plays in a Los Angeles kickball league with her friends.
