Teen Beach Movie's Grace Phipps Has a New Acting Name!

You know Grace Phipps for her work as Lela in the Teen Beach Movie films, but now you’re going to know her as Gracie Gillam!

The 25-year-old actress has decided to change her name professionally and JJJ has the exclusive scoop.

The reason for the name change? We are told that she is known to her friends and family as Gracie and Gillam is her family name.

“I always wanted a stage name, but somewhere between booking a gig on my sixth day in Los Angeles and begging my way into a studio apartment with a high school report card but no credit, it didn’t really happen. In retrospect that was a little early to consider it too late to change, so for the sake of forwardspect: I’m changing it. Gracie Gillam,” she told us in a statement. “A note on why: Generally people start to call me Gracie by the third time spending time with me so ‘okay, note taken.’ And Gilliam is an old family last name and both my father and little brother’s first name. Pronounced Gillam so why not just drop the i.”

In addition to Teen Beach Movie, Gracie has been seen in Scream Queens and she currently is starring in Syfy’s Z Nation.

Make sure to catch Gracie in new episodes of Z Nation on Fridays at 9/8c on Syfy. See some photos of her as Sarge in the gallery!
