Spencer Grammer is no stranger to television. The star of TV2’s college-set drama Greek made her on-screen debut at age nine on a 1992 Cheers episode, playing a guest at Frederick Crane’s birthday party opposite her real-life dad, Kelsey Grammer.

While her father can possibly take the credit for scoring his daughter her first appearance, the younger Grammer success is all of her own making. For the uninitiated, the effervescent Grammer plays quintessential sorority girl Casey on Greek.
Spencer Grammer says growing up on sets with her father, she always loved the industry. She was heading to university when she landed a six-month part on As The World Turns. Soon after that finished, she was cast in Greek.

She says her father expressed concerns about her becoming an actor, but has always given her useful advice. “He wanted to make sure that I chose to be an actress because it was something that I truly wanted more than anything else.”

As the second series of Greek kicks off today on TV2, Casey is facing life on campus as a suddenly single Zeta Beta Zeta sister, who just wants to make sure the school carnival goes off without a hitch.

The show focuses on college life and the social minefield that is the Greek system. Viewers join this unique cast of characters as they navigate their way through this treacherous terrain and try to find their place at Cypress Rhodes University, USA.

Rusty (Jacob Zachar), Casey’s younger brother, is determined to make his college life more exciting than his high school years, which he spent with his head buried in the books. His answer – no more geek, he’s going Greek! However, he faces the one small obstacle, his popular older sister.

Episode one sees Rusty and Casey return to CRU for the new semester, but they must contend with the backlash from Jen K’s story, and deal with the fallout from their relationships. Meanwhile, Cappie (Scott Michael Foster) and Rebecca (Dilshad Vadsaria) must make a choice about their relationship.
