But asides her successful career, she is also known as the wife of one of America’s finest comedians and actors, Seth Green. This post zooms into her bio, height, family and other interesting facts about her.
Clare Grant’s Bio
Clare Grant was born Clare Camille Johnson, in Memphis, Tennessee on August 23, 1979, to parents Clarence and Glenna Johnson. Being first of seven children, she and her siblings were raised in a middle class, conservative Christian family in Memphis, Tennessee. Growing up, she attended White Station High School and later switched to Clear Lake High School where she rounded up middle school.
Following her graduation from high school, Grant proceeded to the University of Memphis where she acquired a degree in Theater. According to sources, it wasn’t all perfect for Grant as she, at some point, had to support herself through college by working as a model under Elite Model Management. Most notable among the brands she modeled for at that time was L’Oréal. However, modeling was just part of a whole lot Grant was doing even while in college.
The Memphis-born beauty started off her career in 2005 with a small but key role in the Academy-winning film, Walk the Line. She was still a college student at the time. It was also around this time that she met ace producer and screenwriter, Craig Brewer, who later cast her in several indie films before handing her a role in the 2006 movie, Black Snake Moan, and eventually the lead role in his 2009 MTV series, $5 Cover.
Grant later appeared as Megan Graves in the 2009 film, The Graves. In 2013, she appeared as Martha Collins in The Insomniac and voiced Black Widow in the Marvel Animation movie Iron Man: Rise of Technovore, later that same year. Her Television appearance began with an episode of Masters of Horror. Since that time, Grant has starred on several shows including, Castle, CSI: Miami and Warren the Ape.
Her career as a producer began with the 2009 short film, Saber, in which she also starred. Saber became an instant success, winning two LucasFilm Fan Film Awards for ‘Best Action’ and ‘Audience Choice.’ Together with her team at “Team Unicorn”, Grant continues to create and produce catchy contents such as parody songs G33K & G4M3R Girls, which sparked a hell of firework for its overtly sexual depiction of Katy Perry’s California Gurls video. G33K & G4M3R Girls grossed over a million views within its first week of release.
Clare Grant and her husband, Seth Green, first met at the Golden Apple Comics book store’s grand re-opening party in November of 2006. They met a year later again at the San Diego’s 2007 Comic-Con. It was here the first tingles of love morphed into a romance that lasted three years before they finally tied the knot on May 1, 2010. The ceremony was held at Skywalker Ranch and was officiated by Grant’s long-time friend and director, Craig Brewer. So far, there have not been any details about the couple having or expecting a child.
