Spencer Grammar: Rick and Morty set records when they get stabbed in 2020

Rick & Morty Actor Spencer Grammar has explained what happened the night she was stabbed in the hand in 2020.

Grammar, 39, is best known for voicing the role of Summers on the hit adult animated series. Before her roll on Rick and MortyShe also starred in the ABC series Greekwhich ran from 2007 to 2011.

In July 2020, the actor was stabbed in the hand after trying to break up an argument in New York City.

Grammar, which is the daughter of Frasier Star Kelsey Grammar suffered nerve damage and two severed tendons in the incident, which is still under investigation. She had to have an operation.

“I had a serious hand injury,” she saidPeople Magazine. “I’ve never really talked about it. But everyone else who wrote about it at the time was wrong.”

Grammar explained that she was “trying to soften a fight” she witnessed with a friend in the East Village.

The altercation reportedly broke out between a patron of the restaurant and a drunk passerby.

Grammar said she couldn’t remember the specific details of what happened, calling it a “blur”.

“Honestly, I shouldn’t have tried to help. But there was no knife involved in the first place. It was basically like any normal fight,” she said.

“I didn’t see the person with the knife, so it’s difficult to say what really happened. Other people said what they saw, so it was all about testimonies.”

Though the case is still under investigation, Grammar said she doubts police will ever arrest whoever stabbed her.

“The crazy thing is that things like this happen so quickly. It all happened within minutes,” she said. “I know your whole life can change in five minutes, so it’s better to be safe than sorry.”

Grammar said that while she thoughtfully thinks she shouldn’t have tried to intervene, she believed doing nothing was difficult.

“I think you’re just one of those guys running to help, aren’t you,” she said. “It’s just in you. And I would probably do the same thing again if I went back in time. Although it has affected my life quite a bit.”

Speaking about her recovery, Grammar said her son had to tie her shoelaces for six months.

“I am only now satisfied to be able to go back to work and achieve the level of productivity I would like to have. I had to go through a crazy rehab after my surgery.”

Grammar said she had no “feel in most of my hands”.

“Sometimes I can’t button things or put an earring in. So there was always this worry that I had to do something on set and I couldn’t make it,” she said.

Grammar is voiced by Summer Smith, Morty’s sister (voiced by Justin Roiland), on the hit series Rick and Morty.

The award-winning series returned for its sixth season in October this year.
