Nancy Lee Grahn Speaker
Nancy Lee Grahn Speaker Profile
She was very famous in France during the years 19801990 with her character in Santa Barbara.
Grahns parents were both involved with their local community theater in Skokie. As a freshman at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Grahn landed her first role, as Mimi in Guys and Dolls at the Goodman Rep Theater. Grahn had another early stage role in a production of A Midsummer Nights Dream with the Dallas Theatre Center.
Grahn subsequently went to New York City, where she studied acting with noted drama teacher Sandy Meisner. In New York, she appeared in commercials and also appeared in several industrial films; in an interview, Grahn recalled crossing paths with fellow future soap star Kim Zimmer at the production of several of those films. She also continued to perform in numerous plays, such as Fathers Day and Two for the Seesaw, among many others.
Grahn has made a number of appearances in episodic prime time television, including Little House on the Prairie, Moonlighting, Murder, She Wrote, Magnum, P.I., Diagnosis: Murder, Perry Mason, The Incredible Hulk, Knight Rider and Babylon 5 (The War Prayer, 1994). She has also been seen in the recurring role of Denise Fielding on Melrose Place, as Connie Dahlgren on Murder One, and, most recently, as Principal Russell on 7th Heaven.
Grahn also has had several roles on daytime dramas. Her first television role was as Beverly Wilkes, Marco Danes secretary on ABCs One Life to Live from 1980 to 1982. In 1985, she was cast in what is perhaps her best-known role, as headstrong lawyer Julia Wainwright Capwell, on the now-defunct soap opera Santa Barbara. Julia was a departure from the traditional damsel in distress or vixen roles; she was an intelligent, uncompromising woman. Julia was paired with Mason Capwell, and the two had a TracyHepburn-esque romance. Offscreen, Grahn was briefly involved with Masons portrayer, actor Lane Davies; conflict over their storylines eventually led to Davies departure from the show. Grahns performance garnered her a Daytime Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in 1989 (an award which she shares with All My Children actress Debbi Morgan). She portrayed the role of Julia until the shows cancellation in 1993.
In 1996, she was cast as Alexis DavisNatasha Cassadine, another headstrong lawyer, on General Hospital, a role she has played ever since. She was nominated for several additional Daytime Emmys. In June 2006, Grahn re-signed with General Hospital for another four years on the show.
Grahn is also an active proponent of reproductive rights. As a member of Daytime For Choice, along with founder Heather Tom, she discussed with the New York Times her decision to have an abortion in her 20s as well as her desire to see abortion depicted in a fair and unbiased light within film and television.
Has a unique take on her fan club; she enlists interested fans to perform community service projects.
Active volunteer in the Clinton presidential campaigns.
Chaired the Media Access Awards, which promotes realistic portrayals of disabilities in the media.
Grahn was Homecoming Queen at Niles North High School 1974
In 2005, she appeared in an episode of the Style Networks How Do I Look?, where her sister was given a makeover. The show is hosted by fellow General Hospital star Finola Hughes.
