Grace Park was raised in Vancouver, Canada in a family of Korean descent. She attended Magee Secondary School before enrolling at the University of British Columbia, from which she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology.

Prior to becoming an actress, Grace Park worked as a model. However, her acting debut came when she was 25, in the 2000 crime thriller “Romeo Must Die” with Jet Li featuring in the main role, in which she appeared as a dancer. Subsequently after her big screen debut, she tried out her talent on the small screens – she was cast in the role of Shannon Ng in the family drama TV series “Edgemont”, appearing in 69 out of 70 episodes during five seasons of airing. The latter engagement provided the basis for Grace Park’s respectable net worth.

The real breakthrough in Grace Park’s career came in 2003 with the “Battlestar Galactica” TV series, in which she initially starred as Lt. Sharon “Boomer” Valerii. Grace’s skillful performance also brought her another role in the “Battlestar Galactica” franchise and show’s various spin-offs, the role of Lt. Sharon “Athena” Agathon. These are, certainly, the most notable acting roles of Grace Park so far, which have also made a huge positive impact on her wealth during the show’s five seasons.

In 2008, Grace Park starred in “Battlestar Galactica: The Face of the Enemy”, a 10 episode mini-series in which she appeared as Number Eight before reprising her Lt. Sharon “Boomer” Valerii role in “Battlestar Galactica: The Plan” TV movie in 2009. In the same year, she also appeared in “The Cleaner” TV series, in which she acted opposite Benjamin Brat. These roles have certainly increased Grace Park’s popularity, as well as added a lot of revenue to the size of her net worth.

In her acting career so far, Grace Park has starred in four movies and 22 TV series, including memorable roles in “The Immortal”, “Stargate SG-1”, “Jake 2.0” and “The Border”. The most recent Grace Park engagement is the role of Kono Kalakua in CBS’s action police TV series, in which she has appeared since 2010. For this performance, Grace Park was nominated for a Teen Choice Award in 2013. Apart from helping her to build a successful acting career, all these roles mentioned above have added a significant sum to the overall size of Grace Park’s wealth.

Throughout her acting career, Grace Park has been enlisted on Maxim’s Hot 100 list several times. She was also honored with KoreAm’s Achievement for Entertainment in 2010.

When it comes to her personal life, Grace Park has been married since 2004 to Phil Kim, a Korean real estate developer with whom she currently resides in Vancouver, Canada. Apart from being a successful actor, Grace Park is also a real polyglot – she speaks English, Korean, French as well as Cantonese and is currently studying Spanish.

Quotes

#Quote
1[on fan art] I just saw a montage that they put together to music, and it was the whole Tyrol and Boomer storyline. And it was all these clips that they put together, and someone sent it to me for my interest. And I watched the thing, and by the end, I was all moved. I was like, "I want them to be together!" [laughs] "They're so great!" Then I was like, "But if I think about it, that was doomed."
2[on fanfiction] I get really confused. I didn't know what that really was. I was like, "I don't remember reading this script anywhere!"
3[on playing two characters on Battlestar Galactica (2004)] There was a lot of pressure that I felt, especially since the second episode was very heavy on the two characters right away. And I remember the director was reiterating some of the points of the show. And I was sitting there thinking, "Yeah, yeah, yeah, but why are you saying these things?" Because they're obvious points. Then I realized in that moment she was making sure that she had the points right, and then I knew the safety net was gone. And then I thought that was very scary at that point.
4[on what's next for her character Sharon on Battlestar Galactica (2004)] It's funny because I was on the plane with [producer Ronald D. Moore] on the way here, and I was like, "What do you see for my character?" And he was kind of lost, and I was like, "It's kind of funny because I'm sort of lost. I was sort of looking at my character to maybe give me some ideas." And he's like, "So the responsibility lies on me to help shape your life?" I'm like, "Yeah, pretty much!" Then he's like, "Well, I was drawing on the actress". And I'm like, "Oh, so you're looking to me to provide you with a storyline?"
5[on Battlestar Galactica (2004)] Whatever you want to see or whatever you're struggling with in life, you can see there, whether it be politics or terrorism or war, hope, faith, struggle, love. It's all in there. Or if you just want plain action and neck-snapping plot twists, you've got that, too.
