Grace Jean King is the Perf Lieutenant. She was once best friends with Kacey Simon. Grace is the other half of "The Perfs" and even though she's loyal to Molly and her pursuit of Kacey's demise, Grace doesn't have a single evil bone in her body.

Grace struggles to keep up with Molly's diabolical plans. Nelson has a major crush on Grace. Grace has a major crush on Nelson as well.

Grace is portrayed by Halston Sage.


On most occasions, Grace seems to act dumb and sycophantic. She is proven to be a very kind, sensitive, sweet and caring girl, up to the point of being called stupid; however, she is very sensitive to this kind of thing, claiming that it is mean and bullying and she won't accept it, but can be shown on some accasions to bully others, however, this might be from the influence Molly has over her.

She seems to be scared of Molly as shown in How to Rock a Statue, when Grace tells Molly that she is a terrible artist. Molly is making her uncomfortable as Grace was telling her she has many other talents such as staring at people and making them nervous. Grace seems to only be mean if Molly tells her to, or if Molly has said something mean before.


Nelson Baxter

In the final aired episode, How to Rock Christmas, Nelson and Grace both kiss each other on the cheek.
