A performer at heart, Grace is Tinsel’s grandmother and kindred spirit, who – just like Tinsel – is on a perpetual quest for an appreciative audience and a well-lit spotlight. She started out as ballerina before an accident on a horse named Alleycat forced her from that saddle and into the world of acting. When that didn’t pan out, she found another horse and rode it all the way to Vegas, where she wound up as a Vegas showgirl. And although she eventually married and raised a daughter of her own, Grace never fully abandoned those dreams of stardom, which her granddaughter, Tinsel, is all too happy to remind her of.
