Grace Palmer


Show business runs in Grace Palmer's blood. Her parents, Tony Palmer and Janine Morrell-Gunn, are veteran TV producers, and her sister Eve presented youth shows. Grace began her screen career as a teen, reporting and presenting on What Now? Then she did almost three years on Shortland Street as nurse Lucy Rickman. The character survived hostage attempts and a violent partner, before going into labour during an eruption. Palmer later signed on for Māori TV comedy Tongue Tied, TV series The Dead Lands and American lost at sea film Adrift. In 2020 she created and co-starred in comical web series Good Grief, with her sister Eve.

This is our first time working together, and hopefully not our last, Having the opportunity to work alongside a sister is super special. We're chalk and cheese, but have always been very close. We can't stay mad at each other for more than five minutes. Grace Palmer on working with her sister Eve on 2021 TV series Good Grief, The NZ Herald, 8 November 2020
