For those who don’t know, Grace, who was born in 1992, has a career that has already gone gangbusters! The proud papa spoke with Soap Opera Digest about the incredible work she has been doing.
“Grace graduated from Vassar and got a masters degree in investigative reporting from Columbia University, and is now writing for The New York Times. One of the first things she worked on was doing research for the Harvey Weinstein story — the one the two main reporters got the Pulitzer Prize for.”
That story has been an integral part of bringing the #MeToo movement to the forefront in people’s consciousness and has helped to bring about real change as more and more women and men have come forward to share their stories about sexual harassment in the workplace.
As for Matthew Ashford’s day job on DAYS, things are really heating up for Jack as he seems to be getting closer and closer to reclaiming his life. Unfortunately, he has quite the obstacle ahead as his greatest supporter, ex-wife Jennifer (Melissa Reeves), disappears.
Jack sets out to get her back. Will these two finally make their way back to each other? Stay tuned. Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
