Grace Gummer BIO

Gummer made her screen acting debut (billed as Jane Grey) in the 1993 film The House of the Spirits, as the younger version of her mother's character, Clara del Valle. She had her next professional acting job after graduating college; in 2008, she starred Off-Off-Broadway in Lukas Bärfuss's The Sexual Neuroses of Our Parents. She originally was asked to help with the play's costume design but ended up auditioning and getting cast in its lead role.

From 2010 until 2011, she starred as Anna Moore on the TeenNick show Gigantic, which premiered on October 8, 2010. She said that she used the show "as a platform to be able to launch [herself] forward." Gummer appeared in the 2010 film Meskada, in which she played the role of Nat Collins, before playing Abby in 2010's Bashert with Paulo Costanzo. In December 2010, Gummer played the role of Hero in a Los Angeles production of Much Ado About Nothing, opposite Helen Hunt. She also had a small role as a student in Julia Roberts' class in the 2010 film Larry Crowne.

In the Spring of 2011, Gummer made her Broadway debut, performing the role of Chloë Coverly in the revival of Arcadia by Tom Stoppard at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre in New York. The following year, she acted in her second Broadway production, The Columnist, opposite John Lithgow.

Gummer appeared as Katie Rand on the NBC television series Smash on March 26, 2012, in the episode entitled "The Coup."

Gummer had a recurring role as FBI agent Paige Willis on the television series Zero Hour, which aired in the early Spring of 2013. During this time, she also joined the cast of the HBO series The Newsroom. Gummer appeared in ten episodes as journalist Hallie Shea, beginning with the second episode of Season 2 on July 21, 2013. Concurrently, she starred in the online miniseries Paloma for WIGS. She also had a supporting role in the 2013 Tommy Lee Jones film The Homesman. In November 2013, she made her first appearance in the American Horror Story franchise; the following year, she appeared in seven episodes as Penny in American Horror Story: Freak Show.

In 2014 and 2015, Gummer starred alongside Halle Berry on both seasons of the Steven Spielberg CBS show Extant. She was part of the main cast for both seasons of the show. She had a supporting role in 2014's Learning to Drive and the 2015 romantic comedy Jenny's Wedding. Following the cancellation of Extant, she had a small role in the 2016 HBO film Confirmation, which was concerned with the Anita Hill controversy, and had a recurring role portraying Nora Ephron in the Amazon series Good Girls Revolt; the show would premiere a year later in November 2016.

On January 29, 2016, it was announced that Gummer had joined the cast of the USA Network series Mr. Robot as a series regular in the role of FBI field agent Dominique "Dom" DiPierro. She appeared in the final three seasons of the show, which premiered in July 2016, October 2017, and October 2019, respectively.

Between filming seasons of Mr. Robot, Gummer acted in the comedy The Long Dumb Road and the action-thriller Beast of Burden in which she co-starred opposite Daniel Radcliffe; both films premiered in 2018. She also had a small role in the Billy Crystal film Standing Up, Falling Down, which premiered in Spring 2019.

Gummer also returned to theater during this time. She had a supporting role in the off-Broadway play Mary Page Marlowe, which began previews in June 2018. In Fall 2018, she filmed The Hot Zone for National Geographic, in which she appears in four of the six episodes; the show aired in Spring 2019. After filming the final season of Mr. Robot during the first half of 2019, Gummer joined the cast of The Public Theater's production of A Bright Room Called Day, which opened in November 2019.
