Born in Sydney, Grace’s earlier years are marked by her fervent passion for the beach, caramel cheesecake and Shania Twain. Growing up she performed in various amateur productions, including Westside Story and Les Miserables. In 2008 her HSC performances in drama and music were nominated for OnStage and Encore.
After graduating high school she spent a year working at the Australian Writers' Guild and completed part-time acting courses at both NIDA and ACA. Grace then began an Arts degree at UNSW, which she thoroughly enjoyed but left to begin her studies at ACA. A highlight of Grace's time at ACA was playing the determined, feisty yet fun Masha fromThree Sisters, directed by Anthony Skuse. Next to caramel cheesecake ACA has been the most fulfilling experience of her life.
