Shalita Grant is an American actress on NCIS: New Orleans, portraying NCIS Agent Sonja Percy, and also on Mercy Street, portraying Aurelia Johnson, a stoic "contraband," or escaped slave.
Grant was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Play in 2013 for her performance as Cassandra in the comedy Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike. The play won the Tony for Best Play as well as the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play. She won the 2013 Theatre World Award for Outstanding Broadway Debut. Other stage works includes roles in The Philanderer for The Pearl Theatre Company, and The Public Theater productions of Measure for Measure, The Winter's Tale, The Merchant of Venice, and A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Following her Tony Award nomination, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue television where she fondly recalls her struggles in auditioning 54 times within one year for various roles and, at one point, while running out of savings, briefly turned to bartending before landing a series of guest star roles in The Good Wife, Battle Creek, Bones, and Melissa & Joey and finally series regular on NCIS: New Orleans from 2015-2018. After she departed NCIS: New Orleans in 2018, she was cast in the recurring role of FBI agent Tess Rogers on the third season of the Netflix horror-comedy series Santa Clarita Diet.
