  • Quotes

    • Grant: (on dealing with fame) I said to myself, Don't let any of this get to you--and it still does. My friends, good friends that they are, said, "You've gone through this and seem so unchanged," and they were very supportive. Maybe to THEM I did seem unchanged, but to myself, I didn't. But that said, I think I did go through it very healthily.

    • Grant: I think that there were only two people in my high school that were comfortable there, and I think they are both pumping gas now.

    • Grant: I like playing a good guy. I will say that Jake from Melrose Place is a little too nice, but in a show that's painted with very broad strokes, if you're going to be good, you're going to be very good, and if you're bad, you're going to be very, very bad. So if I had to make a choice, I'd opt for the good guy.

  • Loved him since Melrose Place

    I have loved him since Melrose Place and despite only

    Loving him on the show, that ain't the first time

    That I saw Grant. He was in Ryan's Place as Rick Hyde

    Also starring a pre-Baywatch Yasmine Bleeth. Very handsome, talented, as well as the guy can act.

    Either as a good or a bad guy! Or good bad boy!! LOL!
  • Grant Show as Lucus Boyd in Point Pleasant as well as many other roles I've seen him play.

    I didn't know about Grant Show until Point Pleasant aired and I immediately liked his character, acting talent and have since watched many other show's hes played in. "Sex and a Single Mom 1 and 2" was great to watch, however, I have definitely missed his acting as Lucus Boyd in Point Pleasant as it was canceled by Fox which I am NOT HAPPY about. I enjoyed how powerful he was in that role, I haven't seen any Melrose Place shows as I've heard he's played in but I definitely see him more as a powerhouse player than the more easy going Jake from the TV show.I enjoyed his work in "The Alchemists" and own a copy of Encrypt but I haven't seen that yet. The futon movie was a bit weird and am suprised he'd do a show like that considering his amazing talent but we'll give him alittle slack for that one. Now that I know about Grant Show I will definitely follow his career and hope to enjoy more characters from him, he was amazing in Point Pleasant and look forward to more from him in the future. Grant Show, we want another powerhouse character from you!!
