If you follow Nancy Lee Grahn on Twitter, you will know she is not just outspoken about a variety of world topics, she is also quite proud of her young adult daughter, Kate Grahn, a singer who released a compelling single about having obsessive compulsive disorder in 2020, according to Soaps In Depth.
Grahn raised Kate as a single mom and did so by choice, becoming pregnant soon after she began playing Alexis because she wanted to have a baby. And a steady job like a contract role on a soap allowed her to do that with financial comfort and stability.
“After ‘Santa Barbara’ ended, I was working. I recurred on ‘Murder One’ and was doing other shows. But when you’re not a regular, you have to keep looking for that next job,” Grahn told TV Insider as she reflected on her quarter of a century playing Alexis. “I wanted a baby. My daughter Kate was the reason I wanted to do ‘GH.’ I called and asked if they wanted me. They said, ‘Not really, but we’ll take you anyway.'”
