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

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!

Grace Phipps Reveals Dating Abuse On Instagram After Popping Eye Vessel

Grace Phipps, who you most likely fell in love with in Teen Beach Movie and Vampire Diaries, has opened up about past dating abuse in her life.

The 24-year-old actress revealed her experience on Instagram after popping an eye vessel earlier in the week.

“Yesterday I received a text message from a man dated last summer who was much older than me who ended up being violent with me. He asked me a simple question that made me realize the full extend with which he looked at me as nothing more than meat,” she wrote. “This feeling, this sense of seeing myself from the outside, and the idea of treating another person with that little human compassion made me vomit so violently that I burst a blood vessel in my eye.”

Grace continued, “I wore contacts that looked like this to play dead in a movie once. I’d like to think that he couldn’t have that power over me. That no one does. I didn’t want to put this online at first, but then I realized that that would mean hiding for maybe three weeks till it heals.”

She added, “I have a meeting with me New York agents I don’t know yet this week. I was supposed to take headshots. I missed my dear friends goodbye party because I was too ill. I didn’t want to let that story get told, but I didn’t want to have to hide too.”
