For five years on nightly network NBC TV, Erin Gray was the American public’s image of the ideal woman. Her “Kate” in Silver Spoons managed to have it all – marriage, family, and business career. And for the two years before that, she had redefined our public image of the beauty with brains: when Buck Rogers in the 25th Century became a hit series, her sleek, sophisticated “Colonel Wilma” became a role model, and Erin Gray became a household word.
Erin’s success as the face that launched some of America’s most glamorous beauty products was already legendary before she made the dramatic career change from model to actress. As the original “I’m worth it” woman for L’Oreal, and the Bloomingdales spokeswoman for Ten years, she was launched into a starring role in the critically acclaimed television mini-series Evening in Byzantium with Glenn Ford. Ms. Gray continued to star in numerous Movies-of The-Week, Born Beautiful, Starman, Coach of the Year, and Code of Vengeance, and also starred as Lilah opposite Kenny Rogers in the feature film Six Pack directed by Dan Petrie.
In Silver Spoons, in which Ms. Gray met and mastered the triple-challenge of the television sitcom-comedy, television, and live audiences, she further honed her “live audience” comedic skills by doing theater, starring in California Suite and Six Rooms River View, and not only achieving critical success with Social Security, but bringing audiences to their feet with standing ovations. In the summer of ’97 Erin starred in the award-winning play La Moure N.D. 58458 at the Bitter Truth Theatre in Los Angeles, as part of the cutting edge NoHo Arts Festival.
Ms. Gray continued to co-star in numerous MOWs such as Breaking Home Ties with Jason Robards, The Avenging Ace and Addicted to His Love. In four fascinating roles, Ms. Gray was again able to express her versatility and range as a psychotic killer and “evil duchess” opposite John Rhys Davies, a brilliant and twisted femme fatal in Dark Justice, opposite Frances’s leading comedic leading actor Thierry L’Hermite in a hilariously funny farce as an American writer who, while hiding out in a French Chateau, becomes involved in a murder mystery.
In the mid nineties Erin starred in three feature films, Jason Goes To Hell, Dangerous Place, and T-Force. She also starred in the first original movie for the USA/ Sci-Fi Networks, Official Denial, as well as the challenging role as the intense prosecutor, Pam Bozanich, in the controversial Fox-produced film of the Menendez trail, Honor Thy Father and Mother. Erin went on to make appearances in guest-starring roles in the CBS MOW Crowfoot, the series Heaven Help Us, Silk Stalkings, Renegade, and the very popular Baywatch.
In the year 2000 Erin guest starred in recurring roles, as Congresswoman Karen Archer in NBC’s highly acclaimed drama Profiler, and the coldhearted Nicole Devlin in ABC’s Port Charles. And in 2002, Erin was honored with the Entertainer Award at San Diego Film Festival. Within the last 18 years, Erin has also completed filming 17 independent feature films: The Last Producer with Burt Reynolds, Woman’s Story, Social Misfits, Touched By A Killer, Delicate Instruments, S.W.A.T., ManFast, Serial Intentions, Clover Bend with Robert Urich, Caught In The Headlights with Stacey Keach, The Wedding Video, Loaded, with Chace Crawford and Jesse Metcalf, My True Self, Hunter Prey, Nesting, Christmas in Palm Springs, Finding Grace, and the award-winning independent film Dreams Awake, for which Erin received Best Actress in a Feature Film from the Monaco’s Angel Film Festival.
“Erin Gray is an extremely accomplished actress and was a tremendous influence in her role as Col. Wilma in Buck Rogers,” said Marc Nathan, show promoter for the Baltimore Comic-Con. “She’s accomplished so much in her career, which has now diversified into running a production company, Wu Wei Entertainment, as well as Heroes for Hire, which books celebrities for events like ours. It’s such a treat to have such a distinguished guest with us in 2018, and we know our fans will be excited to meet her!”
