Although Maggie Grace is still best known for the season and a half in which she played Shannon on the ABC hit drama "Lost," she's slowly been establishing herself in movies, mostly genre flicks like the 2005 remake of John Carpenter's The Fog. Her new movie The Jane Austen Book Club is different in that it's more of a film for the ladies, being Robin (Memoirs of a Geisha) Swicord's adaptation of the best-selling novel by Karen Joy Fowler.

In the movie, Grace plays Allegra, the openly gay 20-year-old whose mother (Amy Brenneman) is trying to get over her cheating husband (Jimmy Smits), so her friends decide to form a book club to discuss and dissect the six novels written by Jane Austen. Allegra agrees to join the club out of support for her mother, but things get more interesting when the five women are joined by Hugh Dancy as a hunky sci-fi geek they're trying to set-up with Allegra's mother.

ComingSoon.net had a chance to sit down with the gorgeous actress with the "girl next door" looks during a brief stop through New York City, days before the movie opens nationwide.
