Erin Gray: I found the counselors to be fabulous and the work that they were doing to be invaluable - I couldn't understand how I, a strong, capable, intelligent person who was fairly successful, still had an inability to see certain things. I found that traditional psychologists were of no value - I was having a breakdown NOW, I needed help TODAY. My girlfriend literally put me in the car and took me to Haven House. Right away I got the knowledge and understanding to know why I could have let this happen, and stayed in this emotionally abusive relationship.
Erin Gray: When I first started acting, I had all these ideals about the kinds of roles I wanted to play, but the reality is that when you do television - and I do a lot of television - you get cast for qualities that you have as a person. So I look for qualities that I like to portray. Every once in awhile I like to play dark ladies, crazy ladies, but most often I look for characters that are strong, intelligent, caring - usually earth women, because that's basically how I see myself.
Erin Gray: I had a really negative look at the night-life side of Hollywood, which I really didn't like. I went to New York to focus on modeling, and then of course found that New York was not any different from Los Angeles.
Erin Gray: (about her costume on Buck Rogers) They wanted it very form-fitting and tight. That's all I knew. I didn't know...it's interesting, because I came from the world of modeling and fashion, so I wasn't really shocked or uncomfortable about wearing the costume. I'd been one of the original Sports Illustrated models, so my sexuality, showing my body, I was comfortable with that. The thing was, I didn't mind being on-camera that way, but I couldn't walk around the studio with my spandex – I always had to wear a bathrobe over it [laughs]!
Erin Gray: I was the first female colonel. I enjoyed being that kind of role model for young women watching the show. A woman can be a colonel! A woman can be in charge! Those were new ideas then.
