Grayson Hall Facts
First husband Ted (Bradbart) Brooks, while an actor, is no relation to the Conrad Brooks listed on this site.

She appeared on "One Life to Live" (1968) in 1983. At that time, husband Sam Hall and son Matthew Hall were writers for the show.

Perhaps the greatest testament to her talent and appeal is that when she was first cast on TV's enormously popular supernatural soap opera "Dark Shadows" (1966) as Dr. Julia Hoffman, who tries to cure Barnabas Collins of being a vampire, the original intention was to have Barnabas kill her character off within a few weeks. However, Hall proved to be so effective in the role that those plans were changed, and she remained with the series for entire run.
