Meet Gigantic's Grace Gummer
Less than two weeks 'til our brand new original series, Gigantic premieres!
Therefore, let's play "Get to know the Gigantic Cast."
First up, Grace Gummer, who plays Anna.
Here are some things that you might like to know about the girl who's face you're about to see all up on your TV screen every Friday after Degrassi.
GET TO KNOW GRACE GUMMER!
1) Gigantic, you may have heard, is all about the (fictional) teen sons and daughters of (fictional) A-list celebrities -- gigantor movie star types. As it happens, Grace knows intimately well what it's like to grow up with a gigantor movie star mom, because her mom is Meryl Streep (that's Meryl, on the right). Perhaps you know her as Julia Child, or the devil from The Devil Wears Prada, or from seeing her at the Oscars every year because seriously, she gets nominated basically EVERY YEAR. What I'm saying is, she's kind of a big deal.
2) Her dad is a sculptor, which might have something to do with the fact that she studied Art History at Vassar.
3) She did theatre in college, and then did some costume design work in Rome after graduation. I bet that must have sucked, living in Italy.
4) Then she interned for Zac Posen in New York. Which must have also sucked.
5) Grace is actually not the only star of Gigantic with personal knowledge of the life of a Hollywood family, either. More on that in future blogs!
