JAYMA MAYS:   * Trivia / Fun Facts    * Smurfy Interview   * Build-a-Bear   * Smurf Movie Premiere   * Best Films & TV
Jayma Mays plays Grace Winslow in the Smurfs Movies. She is the wife of Neil Patrick Harris' character, Patrick Winslow. Grace is 5 months pregnant in the first movie. Her husband, Patrick is a little nervous about becoming a first time Dad but Grace effortlessly shows her maternal side with the lovable creatures, the Smurfs. At the end credits of the movie, we see their little baby boy, Blue Winslow.

The Smurfs Director, Raja Gosnell, says that Grace is a surprisingly tricky role... "You have to be both funny and emotional. She (Jayma) was the only actress who made us believe both sides – her comedic skills are just fantastic, and she also had the enthusiasm and excitement that made us believe what we were watching was real."
SMURFY INTERVIEW WITH JAYMA MAYS

Jayma Mays watched The Smurfs cartoons growing up because her mother was a huge fan...

"My mom loved them, so she made me watch them with her. Just to get under her skin, I would always tell her that my favorites were Gargamel and Azrael! We had the sheets, we had the Smurfs glasses, the sippy cups, all that stuff. But secretly, I was a fan. I loved the show – but I was at an age that I couldn't admit that I liked something that my mom wanted me to like."

Jayma Mays speaks about playing the role of Grace Winslow in the Smurfs Movie...

"For Grace it's so exciting that these little creatures have come into her world and her life. She loves them and she loves their spontaneity and carefree outlook on life. She enjoys her own life being thrown into the air a bit. That's something she's trying to convince Patrick – it's okay to have fun and it's okay to be disrupted in your life. And since they're about to have a child, everything's going to be a bit disrupted for a while – and the Smurfs help him get ready for that."

Jayma Mays reveals her favorite Smurf...

Well, I do have an affection for Clumsy, but I think that’s because of all of my character’s interaction with Clumsy, and he’s so lovable and sweet, and you want to take him home and cuddle him."
