Role in the film
Grace is first seen having knocked on the door in the orphanage where Miss Hannigan is in charge. She then takes Annie to the house of Oliver Warbucks for Christmas, much to the joy of the other orphans.
She gives Annie a tour of the house, which includes an indoor swimming pool and a tennis court.
Audra McDonald is the first (and so far, only) African-American woman to portray Grace.
