Bio for Michael Grant
Michael Grant, who hails from Kingsport,
Tennessee, moved to Los Angeles in 2009 to
steadily build his acting career. The soulful and
talented Grant booked roles on Criminal Minds
with Joe Mantegna, Childrens Hospital with
comedy vets Megan Mullally, Rob Corddry & Malin
Ackerman, Disney Channel’s Shake It Up and on
Nickelodeon’s Victorious. His work extended to
national commercials for Lexus, the web’s Funny
or Die (Flowers and Eviction Notice). In 2011,
Michael generated critical acclaim on ABC’s
Shonda Rhimes hit Private Practice where he
played a young classical pianist stricken with brain
tumor.
The television community quickly became aware of Michael’s ability and range
when he was cast by Seventh Heaven creator Brenda Hampton as Ethan, the
troubled teen on ABC Family’s hit show The Secret Life of the American
Teenager. Michael’s role, which was initially just for one episode, was quickly
expanded and he became a series regular in the series’ final season (2013)
opposite Shailene Woodley. After the show’s conclusion, Michael landed the role
of Connor, opposite Lucy Hale, in ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars. This fall he
can be seen on the FOX comedy series Brooklyn Nine Nine opposite Andy
Samberg and Andre Braugher as Trevor, the vandal son of the deputy police
commissioner.
Michael’s movie credits include a starring role in The Hallmark Channel’s
Reading, Writing and Romance (2013) as tech whiz kid J.D. Forester alongside
Meredith Baxter and Brenda Strong. In addition, MIchael just returned from
shooting the indie dramatic feature, Zoe Gone, from acclaimed director Conor
Allyn, due for release in 2014. He will be seen as Randy Chambers, a young
teen who gets on the wrong side of the law.
A gifted concert pianist who won The Tennessee State Piano Competition at age
6, Michael went on to win first place in the solo and concerto divisions in 2006.
He is still a Tennessean at heart and remains a huge fan of the Tennessee
Titans but in deference to his new California home is fully committed to becoming
an accomplished skateboarder.
