Sprague Grayden began performing at age five, appearing in commercials, the film "Dad" (with Jack Lemmon), and local plays, including "Strong Man's Weak Child," written and directed by Israel Horowitz. She was also a member of a popular youth Shakespeare group that performed in parks around Massachusetts. With the Rebel Shakespeare Company, Sprague appeared in lead roles in A Midsummer Night's Dream, As You Like It, and The Tempest.
This comment from a classmate: "She was pretty popular in high school, and many of us 'drama geeks' looked up to her. Her parents owned a restaurant in town ("Ben Sprague's") that was named after her and her brother. She did quite a bit of modeling in the Boston area, too. Both her parents are involved in education, and are very well-loved in the community."
While attending college in New York, Grayden became a member of the Off Broadway company Drama Dept. She read the lead role in "Little Diva," a public screenplay reading at Drama Dept. Her additional theater credits include "The Vagina Monologues," "Fool for Love" and "Waiting for Lefty."
After receiving a B.A. cum laude in American studies from Barnard College at Columbia University, Grayden returned to her roots and began pounding the New York City pavements looking for theatrical work, but soon found significant work in television.
Her breakthrough role was as the quirky Karen Kawalski in the short-lived series "John Doe." She also played war wife Terry Ryder in Steven Bochco's "Over There," and bad girl Anita Miller in "Six Feet Under," and had a recurring part as Judith Montgomery on "Joan of Arcadia." She's also made appearances on "Law and Order: SVU," "Crossing Jordan," "One Tree Hill," and "CSI: NY."

Despite her obvious "girl next door" good looks, Sprague describes herself as a "tomboy at heart" and a "really big dork" who collects PEZ dispensers and would rather play Scrabble at home than attend big Hollywood parties. She has called herself a "sci-fi geek," and is a fan of the "new" Battlestar Galactica.
"Sprague" is her mother's maiden name.
Barnard College, NYC (graduated 2002)
Guys - keep guessing! Skeet Ulrich is divorced, and Ashley Scott is married, but Sprague has not revealed any romantic involvements in interviews. Either she's unattached, or she's keeping things private.

Quote from Sprague, "I apologize that i haven't created a professional myspace page yet, but i will, i'm just technology challenged."
I'd be more than willing to help you with your Myspace page, if you'd like. Glad to hear you're coming for more seasons to come! Can't wait to see more of you!

Did anyone else watch Private Practice last night??? Was that really Sprague as the woman that delivered her baby in the pool? It sure looked and sounded like her.... and is/was she really pregnant?? If not, makeup did a bang-up job (no pun intended) making her look like it.
