Who is Josie Davis?

Josie Davis is an American actress who initially achieved stardom with the role of Sarah Powell in the TV comedy series “Charles in Charge” (1987-1990), then as Grace Turner in the soap opera “The Young and the Restless” (1996-1997), while recently she started appearing in Lifetime and Hallmark channel films, including “Backstabbed” and “Locked In”, in 2016 and 2017 respectively.

Josie Davis Wiki: Age, Childhood, and Education

Josie Davis was born on the 16th January 1973, in Los Angeles, California USA, the daughter of Ernest William Davis, and his wife Janet R. Dey. From an early age, she became interested in acting, and started featuring in TV commercials at the tender age of three. She steadily featured in more projects, and at 14 she’d already made a name for herself with the role of Sarah Powell. She was still in high school, and after matriculation, she focused entirely on acting, though she later enrolled at the University of California, where she studied screenwriting.

Nevertheless, at 24 years old, she became a lifetime member of the Actor’s Studio, after auditioning only two times, in front of such greats as Shelley Winters, Martin Landau, Mark Rydell.

Career Beginnings and Rise to Prominence

Josie breakout role was as Sarah Powell, the shy bookish girl in the TV sitcom “Charles in Charge”. In three years, she featured in 104 episodes of the highly acclaimed TV series, which made her quite popular. Once the series ended, she finished high school and decided to continue to pursue acting. After a few minor roles, Josie secured the role of Grace Turner in the soap opera “The Young and the Restless” (1996-1997).

Career Decline

She didn’t make many notable appearances in the early and mid- 2000s, appearing in minor roles in not so popular films, and her career hit a somewhat downward spiral. Some of her projects included films “In the Land of Merry Misfits”, and “Chasing Tchaikovsky”, among others.

She made a TV comeback in 2012 with the role of Daphne Miller in the TV series “Hollywood Heights”, and the same year secured the role of Sally in the romantic comedy-drama film “Stealing Roses”. In recent years she started working for Hallmark and Lifetime channels, appearing in films made by its production, which include Accidental Obsession” (2015), “The Garden” (2015), “Secrets of My Stepdaughter” (2017), and is now working on the new TV comedy series “The Hot Seat”, which is currently in post-production, and is yet to receive its release date.
