She has also worked previously as a receptionist, coat check girl, theater user, book stacker, salesperson, a cocktail waitress in a comedy club, cinnamon roll and coffee counterperson and the most interesting one of it all, a mascot at a World Cup soccer invention.
She is not just an actress but a successful writer too
There are some actors who write memoirs and become popular because of it. Graham, however, has published a legit novel called Someday, Someday, Maybe and it was a New York Times bestseller.

She lived on a houseboat
Graham has become successful for her two biggest TV roles as a single mom. She was inspired by her father for playing the parts.
