Why did you decide on a career in acting?

As a kid, I did a lot of local theatre in Texas. When I was sort of at that crossroads of trying to decide what to do with my life, I fell back on the thing I remembered loving most – acting. So I took a few acting classes and moved to Los Angeles.  Sounds simple but it was actually pretty hard.

What attracted you to play the character Daphne Millbrook in the hit series Heroes?

I love Heroes and I love sci-fi. I was thrilled to audition for such a cool role. I mean, who doesn’t want to play a superfast villain?

What has the role in Heroes taught you as an actress?

Just like any other job, you still have to work hard, study the character, and come prepared. I definitely thought I knew this character and then I’d get a new script and there’d be a whole new twist! As an actor, you have to be prepared for anything.

What’s next for Brea Grant?

I have a cameo on the upcoming Max Payne movie that everyone should check out. I’m also working on writing a comic book with my brother right now.

I keep my hair beautiful thanks to…     

Paul Mitchell. My hair is a crazy mix of dreadlocks and regular hair so it’s hard for me to find a good shampoo. A few years ago, another girl with dreadlocks recommended just regular Paul Mitchell to me and it works wonderfully. In addition, I love the Big Sexy Hair line of spray wax. It’s the only thing that can tame my hair!

My favorite skincare products are…    

Pur~lisse. They make a very light lotion with SPF in it. I wear SPF every day so I love a good lotion/SPF combo. I also love Queen Helene Apricot Scrub for keeping my skin clean after a long day of shooting.

I get my eyelashes looking long, full, and sexy using…  

Intuit Beauty Enormous Lash Eyelash Enhancing Serum. The make-up artist on Heroes recommended this to me and I honestly thought it wouldn’t work. But it’s amazing! My eyelashes are fuller and longer than they have ever been.

The best lip-gloss I ever owned…  

Seraph Cosmopolitan Lip Kit. Made and designed locally here in Los Angeles using organic ingredients. There are six different lip-glosses in one container that also holds a tiny mirror. And it fits in my purse!

My signature fragrance is…

I wear a perfume my friend Elizabeth bought me at a random vintage store. I have no idea what it is but it’s a beautiful light fragrance that I love.

The one beauty product you will always find in my purse is…   

I know it sounds boring but usually a lip-gloss or a lip balm like Fresh’s Sugar Lip Treatment with an SPF in it.

My number one beauty secret is…

Getting enough sleep! If I am tired, you can see it in my skin, particularly around my eyes. My friends laugh when I go to bed super early but it works for me!

The celebrity I find most beautiful is…

Julianne Moore. Her style is very classy and she has amazing skin. Plus, I think she makes great choices on the roles she takes. She’s an amazing actress.

The city I love the most…

It’s a tie between Austin, Texas and Portland, Oregon. Both are beautiful cities that I have friends and family in.

One or two things some people may not know about me…

I have an MA in American Studies from the University of Texas.
