Wiki

Allen Kelsey Grammer (born February 21, 1955) is an American actor and comedian. He is most widely known for his two-decade portrayal of psychiatrist Dr. Frasier Crane in the NBC sitcoms Cheers and Frasier. He has been nominated for fourteen Emmys, including one for playing his character on three sitcoms (the third being a guest appearance on Wings), as well as portraying the part on an episode of The John Larroquette Show, and has also worked as a television producer, director, writer, and as a voice artist. He has received many accolades for his role as the voice of Sideshow Bob on The Simpsons.

Grammer was born in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands to Sally Grammer (née Cranmer, 1928 – July 7, 2008), a singer, and Frank Allen Grammer, Jr., a musician and owner of a coffee shop and a bar & grill called Greer's Place. His parents divorced when Grammer was two. He attended Pine Crest School, a private preparatory school in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, for high school. Grammer then spent two years at the Juilliard School.

Grammer's personal life has been plagued by tragedies. In 1968, when Grammer was thirteen years old, his father, whom he had seen only twice since his parents' divorce, was shot and killed. In 1975, his younger sister Karen was abducted, raped, and murdered. In 1980, his twin half-brothers died in a scuba diving accident, and in 2001, David Angell, close friend and producer of Frasier, died in the 9/11 attacks.
