Kandace Greer Grammer, known as Greer Grammer, is the daughter of esteemed actor Kelsey Grammer. She’s a television actress, who is also known as Miss Golden Globes 2015. The LA Times writes:
The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. bestows the honor annually on a person with at least one celebrity parent. Though the title most often goes to a “Miss,” there have been a few Mr. Golden Globes as well. The announcement celebration each year kicks off the round of parties building up to the awards. Miss Golden Globe assists during the ceremony, which will be held Jan. 11 at the Beverly Hilton.
And this year, Greer Grammer has the honor. Read on for the facts on Greer Grammer, her television appearances, famous siblings, and her dating life.
1. She’s Known For Her Character Lissa on MTV’s Awkward
On the MTV show Awkward, Grammer played the character of Lissa, a virginal cheerleader who rebels and becomes a wild child. You can watch a clip from the show, featuring Grammer above. As far as Grammer’s passion for acting, she told Your Tango that she always wanted to be an actress.
I did always want to act. As a little kid, I was a different Disney princess every day. I’d run around the house in my costume and fully embody the character I was playing. My Fair Lady was my favorite movie. My parents didn’t encourage or discourage it. They encouraged me to do whatever I wanted to do.
2. Her Half-Sister Spencer Grammer Is an Actress As Well
Spencer Grammer is the half-sister of Greer, born to Kelsey Grammer and dance instructor Doreen Alderman. She was named after her paternal aunt, who died eight years before she was born, and she’s married to a firefighter named James Hesketh. The two share one child together. Spencer Grammer, like her father and sister, is also an actress, having appeared on Cheers as a child, as well as the TV show Greek for four seasons, and the show Ironside. When it comes to Grammer’s relationship with her half-sister Spencer, she tells Your Tango:
I grew up with my mom and she grew up with her mom so we saw each other on holidays and occasions, but we didn’t grow up together like normal sisters do. We didn’t become closer till I was about 15 and she was 23 when the age difference seemed like less of a gap.
3. Greer Has a Boyfriend
Greer Grammer’s boyfriend (pictured above) has been dating the star for 2 years. For their two-year anniversary, the couple drove up the California coast together. According to Grammer’s Instagram, her boyfriend’s name is Cody Ankrim. Grammer told the LA Times her man’s reaction when she found out she was honored as Miss Golden Globes 2015.
I got the call and I screamed! My boyfriend was, like, ‘What is that?’ and then he heard ‘Golden Globes’ and he knew it was something big.
4. Her Awards Show Tradition Involves McDonald’s
On days of awards shows, Greer Grammer has a routine that involves eating at McDonald’s. While many celebrities are practically starving themselves to fit into their dresses, Grammer is doing this:
Usually on award-show days or crazy days it’s so hard to figure out what to eat. My go-to is an Egg McMuffin. They’re fast and they’re so yummy. They’re McDonalds, so they’re not healthy-healthy, but they’re healthy. For snacks — carrot sticks.
This is surprising coming from a pageant girl. When it came to competing in pageants, Grammer told Screen Invasion:
I never went in very crazy, like I need[ed] to be Miss USA or…anything, [so] it was always fun for me. It was a different form of competition that.
As far as the details of her career in pageants, it’s reported as:
Grammer entered her first beauty pageant in 2008, winning the title of Miss Teen Malibu. She went on to place within the top 10 in the Miss California Teen competition. She competed again the following year, successfully retaining her crown and again placing within the Top 10 of the state competition. In 2009, she represented the Marina Del Rey region, placing in the Top 10 of the 2010 state competition for the third year in a row. That year, Grammer also held the title of Miss Regional California Teen 2011. She competed at the Miss California Teen 2011 competition representing Thousand Oaks. She placed in the Top 10. After this competition, Grammer retired from beauty pageants.
5. Though the Divorce Was Messy, Grammer Says She Has Nothing Bad to Say About Ex-Stepmother Camille
We watched the demise of Camille and Kelsey Grammer’s relationship on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, showing that Kelsey had apparently had a mistress, who is now his wife Kayte. As far as both Camille and Kayte are concerned, though Greer Grammer is a fan of both of them. She stated that:
Camille was always really nice to me, so I can’t say anything about her and my dad’s relationship because I really only saw them at holidays and birthdays and things like that; I didn’t know anything about what was happening. I’ve seen her since and she’s always been kind to me, so I have nothing bad to say about her.
She also said:
Kayte’s great. She’s sweet and cool and awesome. I’ve always really liked her.
