Mae Margaret Whitman (born June 9, 1988) is an American actress who participated in State Of Grace, along with Alia Shawkat, among others. She played the title role, 12-year-old Grace, on the show. She also guest stars on the TV show Arrested Development, where she plays the role of Ann Veal, George-Michael Bluth's strange girlfriend.
Mae started out going to an audition for a voice over in a commercial about Tyson Chicken. She got the job, beating out her own mother for it. This caused a lot of surprise to her mother Pat Musick who is an accomplished actress herself, but it was satisfying to her finding out young Mae had gotten some of the skills she did.
She has also appeared on Independence Day as the President's daughter, (alongside Will Smith) and in Hope Floats, with Sandra Bullock. Mae now has a recurring role as Ann Veal on FOX's Arrested Development.
