MEET BETH GRANT, YOU ALREADY KNOW HER.
If you saw Beth Grant (pictured on the right) on the street, you’d probably recognize her … but you might not know from where.
“Frequently, over the years people have thought that they know me,” Grant told The Huffington Post in a phone interview. “Every character actor has this story, I’m sure. It goes like this: ‘Um, do you play soccer?’ ‘Did you go to such and such church?’ ‘I knew you when you were with so and so … ’ Then I go, ‘Well, sorry …’ and then they say, ‘Wait a minute. Are you an actor?’ and I say yes. Then they go, ‘Were you in so and so?’ I go, ‘No, no, no.’ Pretty soon you want to go to the car and get your resume and give it to them.”
It’s clear the public knows Grant’s face from her various roles, even if they don’t know her name. That’s why the actress was the perfect subject to launch The Huffington Post’s new feature, “Isn’t That … ?,” which will highlight those character actors you recognize from a variety of projects, but don’t know much else about.
