Claire Coffee‘s first small-screen gig was a loud and proud affair.

Proud, because she had nabbed a small part on HBO’s The Mind of the Married Man while she was still in college. And loud, because… well, we’ll let her tell it.

“I had, I think, all of three lines, and the director came over. He’s like, ‘Claire, you don’t have to talk so loud. We have a mic right there,'” she says, laughing. “I had come from stage and theater – I thought I had to talk loud!”

More than 20 TV roles later, the Grimm regular was happy to reminisce with TVLine — at a normal volume — about the non-Hexenbiest parts she’s played, including a Civil War Psycho and a General Hospital angel of medical mercy. Click through the gallery below for Coffee’s visual, annotated resume.
