Born and raised in Alabama, Octavia Spencer landed her first acting role while working behind the scenes of 1996’s “A Time to Kill.” She then moved to Los Angeles where she landed small parts in films and on television. In 2011, her career reached new heights with the hit dramatic film “The Help”, which earned her an Academy Award. This year she’s nominated for her role as NASA mathematician Dorothy Vaughan in the inspiring film, “Hidden Figures.”
In 2013, Spencer bought a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home in Toluca Lake, California, for $841,500 (a steal for Los Angeles real estate).
While modest in size, the 1927 Spanish-style home is filled with character — from dark hardwood floors and plantation shutters to vintage tiles and original fixtures. The property is also in a great location: a block and a half from Toluca Lake boutiques and restaurants on Riverside Drive.
