Penn alum flies high on ABC's "Pan Am"

UPenn and Kate Jennings Grant

One of my favorite new shows this TV season is ABC's "Pan Am". The show does a great job romanticizing the 1960s while skillfully unfolding the backstories of the show's characters. (and yes ladies, now's the time to start thinking about a "sexy" Pan Am halloween costume)

When I was watching the 2nd episode this week, a Penn alum's name in the opening credits surprisingly caught my eye.  And she happens to have had a pretty big role in the show.

After the jump, find out who this Penn alum is, watch a clip of her in the show and find out what other big films and broadway shows you may have seen her in!
