Biography

Though she entered into acting at an early age, Sprague Grayden managed to receive a quality education while her parents made sure she stayed grounded throughout her youth. By the time she pursued acting as an adult, Grayden had blossomed into an assured performer, capable of playing a variety of unique characters on popular dramas. But it was Grayden's 2004 breakout role as Anita on HBO's "Six Feet Under" (2001-05) that led to a slew of subsequent roles on other shows - a pattern which ceased to slow down as her career path curved into the catastrophic remains of "Jericho" (2006-08). She went on to play the ill-fated Donna on the first season of the biker drama "Sons of Anarchy" (FX, 2008- ) and the estranged daughter of President Allison Wilson on "24" (Fox, 2001-2010). While she spent the bulk of her early career on television, Grayden branched out into features with starring turns in two installments of the wildly popular horror series, "Paranormal Activity 2" (2010) and "Paranormal Activity 3" (2011), which allowed the talented actress to gain a foothold with a wider audience.
