For Nancy Grahn, who plays SB's Julia, growing up with parents of two
different faiths was -- and is -- no problem. "My mom's Jewish,"
Nancy says, "but my dad is Lutheran, but I grew up in Skokie. I don't
know what I am." Being brought up in Skokie, an Illinois community
that Grahn describes as being ninety percent Jewish, was an ideal setting
for Nancy and her sisters to decide which religion they would follow.
"One sister is raising her kids Jewish," Nancy laughs. "My
other sister is raising her baby Catholic. And my mother said that if I
ever have children I'll be taking them to a mountaintop to meditate."
