Grammer speaks to the dead

Kelsey Grammer speaks to the dead, including a 2,000 year old ghost called Alex who teaches him about good and evil.

The Frasier star has lost a number of family members to tragic and violent deaths, something he claims has strengthened his belief in an afterlife.

His father was murdered by a gunman when he was 13, his sister was just 18 when she was robbed, raped and stabbed to death eight years later - and five years after that, his two half brothers were eaten by sharks.

Grammer says: "I have communicated with many entities of late, some that I've known in the past. I believe in past lives and reincarnation.

"After we die, we go to another place where we continue to evolve. You can call it heaven if you want to. This is not something I'm guessing at. I know there's something beyond me.

"I don't think we get to have as much fun with bodies on the other plane. What I've been told… is that people do miss food on the other side. They would still love to have a milkshake."
