Tribute to Mary Grady
Hollywood lost a Legend with the passing of Mary Grady. I lost a piece of my heart and soul. She was 96 years young. Mary was responsible for completely changing my life 20 years ago when it was time for her to "Pass the Torch" of her famous Hollywood Talent Agency, The Mary Grady Agency (MGA) and she blessed me (among her many choices) with the honor of buying it from her and taking it over after introductions by my friend, child star, Tammy Locke.
As a savvy, energetic and passionate businesswoman, Mary Grady was a true pioneer and well ahead of her time.
I recall like it was yesterday when Mary decided to leave agenting in 2000 to explore other industry goals and spend more time with her beautiful family, Don Grady (“My Three Sons”) and wife Ginny, Lani O’Grady (“Eight is Enough”), Marylou her oldest, and her fabulous grandchildren. Mary repeatedly told me at the time that her goal was to “pass the torch” of running MGA Talent to someone who would honor her name and the reputation that she tirelessly built over 40 years.
Mary told me wonderful stories of her years in Hollywood. Some put tears of laughter in my eyes, others left me in jaw-dropping amazement, but all etched Mary’s impact on Hollywood forever in my mind. I always love how, on Mary’s 80th Birthday, then-Hollywood Honorary Mayor Johnny Grant, who regularly unveiled new stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, said that if there were ever to be “Stars” for Talent Agents, he wanted Mary’s to be the very first. I think there should be, and that Mary’s should be No. 1.
