Erin Gray was born January 7, 1952 in Honolulu, Hawaii where she spent the early years of her life. When her parents
seperated Gray moved with her mother to California where she would spend the rest of her childhood life.
At age 15 when she was looking for a part time job over the summer, a friend of the family suggested that young Gray take
a look into a careen in modeling. At first her mother opposed to the idea, but later had a change of heart.
Planning to voyage into the modeling field, Gray first made out a list of modeling agencies in Los Angeles California. But
when she arrived in Los Angeles to meet with agents instead of going to the top of her list she went from the bottom up. Eventually,
after being snubbed a few time she noticed the office Modeling agent Nina Blanchard accross the street from her who was at
the top of Gray's list. Feeling that she has nothing to lose. At the office Nina Blanchard's secretary looked over Gray carefully
then was setup for an interview. She went to the interview expecting nothing and decided to chalk up the whole thing as a
learning experience. When she called Nina Blanchard to thank her for seeing her, Ms. Blanchard barked at her saying that she
is she (Erin Gray) wanted to become a model then she would have to keep in contact everyday because new models do not make
it big over night.
Within the first few years of her modeling carren, Erin Gray became the top model in new York according to Advertising
Age magazine. One of the reason for this was because Gray had a she was able to change her look to fit almost any type of
add. In one add she would be the girl-next-door for one ad then switch over to the strong business type for another. Nobody
was able to make the connection between the house wife in the sears commecial to the sultry dancer from the English Leather
Years went by and Gray we farely comfortable with her job status. It was that time she decided that she wanted to have children.
But by doing this she would have to make some major decisions in her life. Either to continue modeling or go into acting full
time. After discussing it with her husband for some time she made the decision to into acting and headed agin to Los Angeles
California. After a few auditions she landed a few rolls in TV movies and guest spots of some TV shows which finally lead
