Grand had a tough time before she landed on NCIS: New Orleans. Soon after her Tony award, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue television. There, she struggled with 54 different auditions within one year for various roles. She even slapped herself once in one of those auditions. At one point, she went so broke that she had to turn to bartending before landing on a series as a guest star in The Good Wife (which also features Cara Buono and Matthew Goode), Melissa and Joey, Bones and Battle Creek. Finally, she landed on NCIS (2014). She has also been a cast-member in an Oscar-nominated documentary Rehearsing a Dream’ (2006).

The actress who is in her late 20s is very much health conscious. Even though her work occupies over 14 hours of her day on set, she manages to keep herself fit. In an interview, she revealed that she never eats anything except her own meal and that she always carries a meal with her for the day. She also said that she never misses working out a single day and that she does the different type of workouts.

Shalita keeps her private life away from the media. She has actually been spending quality with a journalist as well as a TV host, James Vaughan. The two keep on posting the pictures of each other on their social networking sites. But, James once dragged LGBT sexual desire which brings us with confusion if the couple is actually dating. Shalita seems to be kind of girl who is in no hurry to get married and is focusing on her career.

The actress has been earning filthy amount from two of her famous series, Mercy Street and NCIS: New Orleans, which also features Rome Flynn. She has earned some of her earnings from different nominations and awards as well. Her estimated net worth is known to be around $200,000.
