Childhood & Early Life

Graham was born to Donna Grant, a fashion buyer, and Lawrence Graham, a candy industry lobbyist who is the present President of National Confectioners Association.

Graham’s parents split-up when she was just five, and she moved to Washington D.C. along with her father, who became a Congressional Staffer there. She grew up in Northern Virginia in close proximity to Washington D.C.

Horse-riding was her leisure pursuit, but soon she took to acting, perfecting this art at Langley High School’s drill team.

She gained an Actor’s Equity Card in 1988 after being a part of Summer Stock at the Barn Theatre in Augusta, Michigan for two years. In the same year, Graham graduated from Bernard College of Columbia University, New York, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature.

After shifting to Texas in 1992, she earned a post-graduation degree in Acting Performance from Southern Methodist University, Dallas.

She also appeared in the second tournament of ‘Bravo’s Celebrity Poker Showdown.’ After succeeding in her preliminary match, she came in second to another former NewsRadio star, Maura Tiemey, in the championship game.

Her film roles involve many student films of NYU and certain paramount studio releases including ‘Sweet November’, ‘Bad Santa’, ‘The Pacifier’, ‘Because I Said So’, ‘Evan Almighty’, ‘Flash of Genius’ etc. She performed in several short-films, including 15-minute long ‘Gnome’ as well.

She signed a seven-figure development deal with NBC in one of the year’s richest TV talent pacts but the deal ended cordially due to writers strike.

She also did Voice-over in national advertising for Kellogg’s Special K products, and American Express advertisements pioneering the launch of Plum Cards.

On October 9, 2009, she replaced Maura Tierney in the television Series ‘Parenthood’ as a single mother Sarah Braverman. The series unveiled on NBC the following year and later underwent improvisations for a second season.

In January 2009, it was revealed that Graham would star in the comedy pilot, ‘The Bridget Show’ for ABC playing a talk show host and self-help guru who can’t let her ex-boyfriend go. Nonetheless, it was not given the series order.

In July 2012, she participated as a judge in the first episode of Season 10 of ‘Project Runway’, an American Reality Television Series.
