Like many of her castmates on "Lost" (ABC, 2004-2010), Maggie Grace's acting career received a considerable boost after signing on to the complex science fiction drama. Prior to it, she had logged numerous hours on network television series like "Oliver Beene" (Fox, 2003-04) and in several TV movies, but remained largely anonymous to viewers until "Lost." Cast as Shannon Rutherford, a spoiled rich girl who showed an inordinate amount of character under duress, Grace tucked into her showy part with relish, and in the process found herself on the receiving end of glowing praise from the press. After her character's unexpected demise in the middle of the second season, Grace starred in the horror film "The Fog" (2005), a remake of the popular John Carpenter ghost story. It was met with near-universal disdain from moviegoers, but Grace found more movie work in indie features like "Suburban Girl" (2007) and "The Jane Austen Book Club" (2007). She was even top-billed alongside Liam Neeson in the thriller "Taken" (2008), which clearly indicated that Grace had the talent and appeal to make her transition from television into films a permanent one.
