Beth Grant talks about studying and acting at the Beverly Hills Playhouse with Milton Katselas. Beth Grant say that she wouldn't have a career if it weren't for the Beverly Hills Playhouse and Milton Katselas. She had a casting problem. She wanted to be Joan Crawford, Marilyn Monroe, and Loretta Young. Milton made her realize that she was more the proletariat. Beth says that as soon as she got that casting lesson and played Flo in a scene from "Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore", she booked "Rainman", and that changed everything for her. Six years ago she came back to the Playhouse so that she could stretch as an artist and hopefully book more leading roles. She worked on scenes playing roles like Lady Macbeth and Madea, and she ended up getting cast as a Victorian Matron. When she does work on a certain kind of character to stretch her instrument, inevitably she ends up getting a job doing just that. Beth is from the South and never wanted to play herself or people she knew, but ironically she has built a career on those types of characters- most recently in "No Country for Old Men". "To think that I would have missed out on so many great roles like in "Rainman", "A Time to Kill", and even "Little Miss Sunshine"."
