Grant joined the acting unions SAG/AFTRA/AEA, and studied acting with Lee Strasberg in the early 70's in New York City. Returned to film in 1998 at the request of Italian director, Edoardo Amati, to portray the lead,'Frank Falcone' in his film, "Master Shot". Presently shooting many independent films.

For the film 'Dead Serious', Grant sat for four hours while makeup artist, Anthony Pepe created plaster casts of facial, head, neck, and teeth forms of Grant to mold the Master Vampire's- Reverend Bob Rivington transformation prosthetics. Anthony Pepe designed the film poster and used Grant's face to shape the blood dripping vampire face.

2000- The semi-circular scar over his left eye brow and nose was inflicted by the lens of an Arri BL 16mm camera in the hands of Emad Beshay (The Lost Face) during a hand-held move-in closeup, but while still bleeding he finished the shot. Candidate for the Film-Maker hero award. A closeup on the scars can be seen in the film poster of 'Money Matters' posted on IMDB.

"The Arts, especially film, transcend all cultural barriers, hopefully offering an avenue where all people can find a common place to meet, understand each other, and nurture a safe world for all our children to grow strong within."
