Grace Van Patten, the actress, is starring in Hulu’s new drama Tell Me Lies. She inherited her talent and beauty from her both parents. Let’s learn more about her parents Tim Van Patten and Wendy Rossmeyer in this article.
Below you’ll learn about their age, job, and current residence.
Who Are Grace Van Patten Parents?
Grace Van Patten is the oldest of three daughters born to Wendy Rossmeyer Patten and Tim Van Patten. Back in 2017, while interviewing with Vogue, the actress shared that she was living with her parents. Her father being a director, she spent her childhood bopping around the set — but she booked the job on The Sopranos at the age of eight on her own merits.
“My dad was like, ‘I’ll get you an audition, and then I’m out. I’m not going to do anything,’” the actress recalled. “He wasn’t there when I auditioned, and I remember being really scared.”
“That was definitely my first vivid memory of acting and being like, ‘I love this,’” she told W Magazine.
Grace returned years later starring in an indie film as the freewheeling Ellie in the Netflix crime caper Tramps, which earned rapturous praise at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival. With the expansive family dramedy The Meyerowitz Stories by Noah Baumbach, she made a comeback to the festival circuit this year (New and Selected).
Even before it made its Cannes Film Festival debut in May, Netflix snatched it up for distribution, and on Friday, it will be available to stream and watch in theaters simultaneously. Grace played Eliza, a Bard film student and the youngest member of the Meyerowitz family, an illustrious Upper West Side family, in the movie Meyerowitz.
Before her family relocated to Cobble Hill a few years ago, Grace was raised in Tribeca and went to the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, where she was friends with Timothée Chalamet and Ansel Elgort, both of whom are currently experiencing indie-film breakthroughs.
