Erin gray Interview
I erin gray distinctly remember watching Buck Rogers in the 25th Century in the late 1970swhen Gray was Earth Directorate commander Colonel Wilma Deering. I also remember loving the sitcom of the 1980s Silver Spoons, where she was Kate Summers Stratton. If you continue to look around, you’ll discover evidence of Gray’s model on the front cover of a 1969 Sears catalog, on full-page Virginia Slims advertisements, and in Bloomingdale’s commercials on television. In addition to other ventures and trips in her Heroes for Hire program, Ms. Gray guest stars as Madeline Twain on Felicia Day’s web-based show The Guild.

The interview with Ms. Gray gave GeekMom nearly an hour in a candid and intense interview, which included details of her journey to leave her home at the age of 17 to travel around the world as an model, and an undergraduate math student at UCLA and juggling an endless schedule as a mom working at Universal Studios while filming Buck Rogers and being involved as a volunteer at Haven House in Pasadena, and now her life as a tai-chi master, who lives the Taoist life.
In the time that Mrs. Gray discussed “the way things were” in her role as actor/working-mom during the 70s, she created scenes in her descriptions that instantly took you back to the past. Her vivid and bittersweet stories of the frantic hours she spent filming the same scene over and over again, working all night to achieve deadlines and the abuse she endured not just at the workplace as well as at home and at home, brought tears into my eyes.
Life as Colonel Wanda Deering
We began by discussing her first roles as an actor. I specifically inquired about how she got the role of Colonel Deering in that Buck Rogers made-for-television feature film and then it evolved into her playing the role in the TV series over two years. She was modeling for a few years before she was asked to appear in the mini-series of television in 1978 Evening at Byzantium alongside Glenn Ford and Shirley Jones. At the conclusion of the filming process when she was asked to try out to play Buck Rogers.
