Known In The '70s For: Being a TV model

Erin Gray kicked off her modeling career at just 15 years old and by the mid-1970s she had become one of the top TV models in the country. Deals with L'Oreal and Bloomingdales bolstered her visibility and pushed her annual earnings into the six figure range, a mark only a handful of models could boast. By the end of the decade, Gray shifted her focus to acting and earned credibility with performances in Evening in Byzantium (1978) and the TV series Buck Rogers in the 25th Century.
