August Ames

Hilary Rivera was as proud as any other mother would be of her daughter Mercedes Grabowski as she left her native Nova Scotia, Canada, at the age of 19 with hopes of finding stardom in Los Angeles. And, within months of landing in Hollywood, the “free spirit,” as Rivera describes her eldest daughter, managed to make a name—well, a new name—for herself: August Ames.

Really, the mother of four’s only qualm was the nearly 6,000-mile distance Ames’ new career put between the pair.

It was something that I had never fathomed could possibly happen to her.”
