Kelsey Grammer’s daughter Spencer discusses severe hand injury from 2020 stabbing for the first time

Kelsey Grammer’s daughter Spencer discusses severe hand injury from 2020 stabbing for the first time: ‘It has affected my life pretty deeply’

Rick and Morty star Spencer Grammer has finally revealed the severity of the hand injury she suffered after being stabbed by an intoxicated man outside East Village restaurant The Blank Ant on July 24, 2020.

The angry assailant – who was never arrested – used a pocket knife to sever the 39-year-old LA native’s median nerve and two tendons as she ‘tried to alleviate a fight.’

‘I honestly shouldn’t have tried to help,’ Spencer admitted to People on Tuesday.

‘I think you’re just one of those people who runs to help or you don’t. It’s just in you. And I probably would do that same thing again if I went back in time. Although it has affected my life pretty deeply.’

Grammer marveled: ‘The crazy thing is, things like that happen so quickly. It all happened in a matter of minutes. I know that within five minutes your whole life can change, so it’s better to be safe than sorry.’

The Solar Opposites guest star’s injury required surgery and ‘crazy rehab’ but she had support from her 11-year-old son Emmett Emmanual from her six-year marriage to firefighter James Hesketh, which ended in 2017.

‘My son had to tie my shoes for six months,’ stated Spencer, who’s friend Jan Phillip Mueller was also stabbed.

‘I still don’t have feeling in most of my hand. Sometimes I can’t button things, or put in an earring. So there was always this worry that I was going to need to do something on set and not be able to do it.’

Grammer continued: ‘S*** happens to everybody, and in the scheme of things, it was minuscule. I still have a hand that works, and I’m okay. I’m going to be okay, and there are plenty of other people dealing with much worse and much more dire situations.’

On Monday, The Barbarian and the Troll actress Instastoried a video of herself playing acoustic guitar with her injured hand and singing Mariah Carey’s 1994 hit All I Want for Christmas is You.

Spencer is best known as the eldest daughter of Frasier star Kelsey Grammer from his two-year marriage to dance instructor Doreen Alderman, which ended in 1990.

Ironically, Grammer’s middle name Karen was a tribute to her late paternal aunt, who was raped and murdered by spree killer Freddie Glenn, at age 20, in 1975.

The Columbia University grad student will next portray Michelle opposite her real-life 67-year-old father in Dustin Riker’s A Christmas Carol-inspired comedy 12 Days of Christmas Eve, which premieres this Saturday on Lifetime.

‘It was wonderful to spend that time with him,’ Spencer said.

‘I really loved being able to do what I do best after all these years: cry when I need to, yell when I need to, learn lines, run around, put my hair and makeup on. Acting is such a pleasure for me.’

Grammer also voices 18-year-old Summer Smith in the 10-episode sixth season of Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon’s Back to the Future-inspired animated series Rick and Morty, which airs Sundays on Adult Swim.
