Happy Birthday Erin Gray

58 Today !
Didn't know this but apparently she was a finalist for the role of Capt. Janeway on Star Trek: Voyager. It's a pity she didn't get the role.

Not seen this bottom pic before, I'm sure it must be from her days as a model.

Lovely Erin, she'd have been great as Janeway, a lot better than the woman they used with the gritty voice.

I would have actually watched the show then. I gave up after the first season...a lot of it was the voice.

Oh boy yeah that voice,I gave up with Voyager around series 3 I think,only seen the odd episode after that,seen the final one though just to see how they got back to Earth !

I always thought she sounded like Cartman from South Park.

Happy Days ? Wasn't that with the Fonz ? :)

Oh my... as a young man, Erin Gray was about the hottest thing ever - That English Leather commercial? "My men wear English Leather - or they wear nothing at all!"... be still my heart.

Finding out later that I share a birthday with her makes her even better, though she's got 20 years on me (and still a babe).

She was and still is the bee's knees. Those skin tight outfits from Buck Rogers... Rowr! I don't even know if there was stretch material back then - those may have been fitted to her frame and she had to squeeze into them.
whoever picked that other lady over Erin Grey for the Captain on Voyager should be run out of town.

Erin Gray in a no-holds mudfight with Lynda Carter. The Fonze can referee.
