In 2007, Grey portrayed Daphne on the HBO series John from Cincinnati.In 2010, she played Abbey, the mother of a sick child in the season seven House episode "Unplanned Parenthood". Now it seems real and weird at the same time because I’m looking at myself a lot. HC: What were your initial conversations like with Joss Whedon about Grant? this character hasn’t existed prior to this project.

In September 2011 Grey appeared in the Lifetime movie Bling Ring as Iris Garvey, the mother of Zack Garvey.

On August 5, 1987, Grey suffered severe whiplash in a car accident in Enniskillen, Northern Ireland, while vacationing with Matthew Broderick, whom she began dating in semi-secrecy during the filming of Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

The accident, which was the event through which their relationship became public, occurred when Broderick, at the wheel of a rented BMW, crossed into the wrong lane and collided head-on with a Volvo driven by a local mother and daughter, Margaret Doherty, 63, and Anna Gallagher, 28, who were killed instantly in the accident.

Broderick was later convicted of careless driving and fined £100.

My dad’s an artist and my grandfather paints — he’s not a painter, my grandfather’s a butcher — but he does a lot of crafts, stained glass, painting, that stuff.

There’s so much pressure, oh my God, it’s Joss Whedon, [he directed “The Avengers,” the] third-highest grossing film in the world, cult favorite, but there’s no pretense about him whatsoever.

(Click through the gallery above for a behind-the-scenes look at “Eye Spy.”) Back in August, Hero Complex visited the Los Angeles set of the series while the episode was filming, and soon after, chatted with Dalton, a San Jose native and Yale drama school grad, about the show and joining the Marvel universe as the special-ops expert. You really want it to go and you hope it goes for seven years, but you haven’t gotten picked up yet. I think when I got to about college I stopped getting into it for a while and then in grad school I popped into this comic book store every once in a while and grabbed some. I’d go to the flea market and pick up action figures that were super-hard to get.
