Leslie Grossman stars as “Coco St. Pierre Vanderbilt” in the eighth installment of American Horror Story.
Grossman’s breakout role was as the spoiled rich girl “Mary Cherry” on the WB’s Popular. She followed that up with four years on the WB series What I Like About You. She was last seen in Ryan Murphy’s hit FX anthology show American Horror Story: Cult.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Grossman always secretly wanted to be an actress, although she never really expected it to happen. Her initial foray into showbiz was as a director of one-act plays in a festival at Crossroads School, a performing arts high school in Los Angeles. She switched gears from director to actress during her senior year at Sarah Lawrence College in New York. Grossman starred in a theatre production of Cereal! which was so successful that it made a one-year run off-Broadway. Subsequently, the play made its way to Los Angeles at the Hudson Theater.
Grossman’s numerous television credits include guest appearances on The Good Place, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, Speechless, Love, Modern Family, Nip/Tuck, CSI, Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy.
When not working, Grossman enjoys spending time with family and friends, shopping and going to the movies.
