Maggie Grace — Celeb Crush
Though she got her start in Hollywood several years earlier, we first met Maggie in 2004 as the slightly-annoying-and-panicky-but-still-kind-of-adorable Shannon Rutherford on the long-running ABC hit, ‘Lost.’
Born in Worthington Ohio as Margaret Grace Denig, 29-year-old Maggie dropped out of High School to move to LA and pursue a career in acting with her mother, after her parents’ divorce. It didn’t take long before she was cast as the title character in ‘Rachel’s Room,’ a 2001 web series. Not long after that, she was nominated for the 2002 Young Artist Award for her portrayal of a 15-year-old murder victim in the TV movie, ‘Murder in Greenwich.’
2004 began her two seasons of ‘Lost,’ (R.I.P. Shannon) (If that’s still a spoiler for you, congratulations on waking up from your coma. Email us, we have to tell you about what Amanda Bynes from ‘All That’ has been up to lately.)
Post-’LOST,’ the whole world knew Maggie’s face. She was cast in several movies over the next few years, including ‘The Fog,’ ‘Suburban Girl,’ ‘Malice in Wonderland,’ and ‘Taken,’ opposite Liam Neeson. She took a quick break from film to re-appear in the last few episodes of ‘LOST,’ and then in 2013 she began on season 6 of ‘Californication,’ the best show ever, where she plays Faith, the groupie. We’re just glad to see her face on the regular again, that’s all.
