Grace Gealey Talks Empire at UNCF Evening of Stars
Grace Gealey caught up with Entertainment Scoop on the Red Carpet. UNCF An Evening of Stars returned to the Atlanta Civic Center on April 12th to tape the 36th installment of their hallmark show that raises money and awareness for minority education. Anthony Anderson was the host and it airs on BET, April 26 at 10:00 PM.
Grace Gealey moved to America to attend the University of South Florida in Tampa, where she received a B.A. in Theater Arts. During her time at USF, acting afforded her the opportunity to communicate viscerally; a desire that came from being a child of deaf adults (CODA). Upon graduating from college, Gealey was accepted into the University of California Irvine’s graduate program and obtained her M.F.A in Acting. A successful showcase took her from Los Angeles to New York City, where Gealey performed professionally. Several theater productions, short films and national commercials led her to Chicago. EMPIRE marks Gealey’s network television debut.
