Actress Brea Grant grew up in the Lone Star State and studied at the University of Texas. After graduation, she realized her ambitions for a serious acting career and moved to Los Angeles, aggressively breaking into show business. Grant scored her first major role on the critically worshipped (yet low-rated) prime-time drama Friday Night Lights, as the spunky and outspoken high-school student Jean in a few episodes of the series' second season. After that, NBC producers promptly tapped Grant for another series, this one a blockbuster hit: the sci-fi drama series Heroes. She signed on to play Daphne, also known as "The Speedster," a supersonic character of mysterious origin and background who attempts to steal a long-guarded secret from the family of Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka). Grant's unusual look -- thick, bleach-blonde locks in a Dutchboy haircut -- served her as a trademark on Friday Night Lights, and Heroes' producers decided to retain the same look for their program.
