Grammer made her acting debut on a season 10 episode of sitcom Cheers, which starred her father Kelsey Grammer. Following this brief appearance, she didn’t start pursuing acting as a career until the early 2000s. She made guest appearances on shows like Third Watch and – in keeping with just about every up-and-coming actor – an episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. Grammer also made her film debut in the 2006 drama Beautiful Ohio starring William Hurt and Rita Wilson.


One of her first big TV roles came in 2006 when she played Lucy Montgomery on soap opera As The World Turns. She inherited this role from Amanda Seyfried and Gotham actor Peyton List. After exiting the soap, Grammer landed her next major series with ABC comedy-drama Greek. The actor was cast in the lead role as Casey, who alongside her younger brother Rusty (Jacob Zachar) has to navigate college life and all the peer pressure and growing up that comes with it. The show received great reviews and ran for four seasons, coming to an end in 2011.
