Faye Grant (born Faye Elizabeth Yoe; July 16, 1957) is an American film, television and stage actress.
Her first television role was on the TV series The Greatest American Hero, in which she appeared as Rhonda Blake, one of the students of Ralph Hinkley(William Katt), the schoolteacher whom extraterrestrials had chosen to be the title character of that satire. Her best-known role came in 1983 as Juliet Parrish in the science fiction mini-series V, the 1984 sequel V: The Final Battle, and V: The Series from 1984 to 1985. Her film credits include The January Man, Internal Affairs, Drive Me Crazy, and Omen IV: The Awakening.
Grant starred on Broadway as vocally-challenged Lina Lamont in the 1985 stage adaptation of Singin' in the Rain, which won her the Theatre World Award and a Drama Desk Award nomination as Outstanding Featured Actress in a Musical. In director Jerry Zaks' 1987 Lincoln Center-to-Broadway revival of John Guare's House of Blue Leaves, Grant played the deaf Corinna Stroller, following Julie Hagerty and Patricia Clarkson in the role.
Grant has made guest appearances in TV shows like The Incredible Hulk, the Voyagers! pilot installment, in which she appeared as Mary Murphy, Hardcastle and McCormick, Time of Your Life, Tales From the Crypt, State of Grace, the TV series version of Tales of the Gold Monkey, and most recently, 7th Heaven. Both of these last two programs starred actor Stephen Collins, who acted out Jake Cutter in Tales of the Gold Monkey and Rev. Eric Camden in 7th Heaven.
Grant had first met Collins during production of "Last-Chance Louie," the installment of Tales of the Gold Monkey in which she guest-starred as Genevieve LaBatier and which was actually transmitted on March 11, 1983, as Installment 18 of Tales of the Gold Monkey's only season. By the time she guest-starred in 7th Heaven, as Abigail "Abby" Morris in the installment "What Will People Say?", which was transmitted on November 11, 1996 as Installment 8 of the program's first season, she had been Collins's wife for 11 years.
Grant and actor/writer Stephen Collins were married on April 21, 1985 and they have a daughter, Kate. It was announced that they were divorcing in 2012 after 27 years of marriage. According to TMZ.com, Grant said that she had given up her career while their daughter grew up and had lost employability.
