A: Ladd, 80, who has more than 100 film and TV credits, goes from playing one grandmother in Joy to playing another in the Hallmark Channel series Chesapeake Shores, premiering tonight, based on the novel by New York Times best-selling author Sherryl Woods. But she doesn’t mind—she’s a reallife grandma with 10 grandkids of her own, including two from daughter Laura Dern. “Each is a connection,” she says. “Every soul is different.”
