  • Unk 00, 1983, Adam Rich co-stared in the last two episodes of the TV series "Gun Shy"
  • Unk 00, 1983, Grant Goodeve was a short-term regular on "Dynasty" TV Series as Chris Deegan. He reprised the role in 1987.
  • Unk 00, 1983, in 1983-84, Willie Aames became a regular playing Robbie Hamlin in the soap The Edge of Night until the soap ended.
  • Jan 00, 1983, from Jan 1983 through 1984, and again in 1987-88, Brian Patrick Clarke became a regular in the soap General Hospital as Grant Putnam and Grant Andrews. Ron Perez fills in the details on his two characters storylines: DVX Grant was working with or associated with a scientist working on something called the Prometheus Disc. Apparently, this was a miniature device that could revolutionize the energy industry and the DVX wanted this disc very bad! That's why DVX Grant was there undercover: to steal the disc! At one point, the scientist is killed and the disc just disappears somehow and ends up in the hands of Luke Spencer, who realizes it's importance and hides it (one time taped to the top of a ceiling fan blade) at his night club. Grant was also joined by two other DVX agents, a woman who works at General Hospital and a man who plays the piano professionally who have also been planted in Port Charles for the sole purpose of covering for and aiding Grant in the recovery of the disc. Luke and Holly are eventually kidnapped by the DVX agents and hidden at an Indian Embassy for some reason i can't remember! Anyhow, Luke and Holly of course realize that this Grant Putnam that they have known for awhile is really a secret agent and appeal to him to help them escape: Grant does so by dropping clues about how he will help them and eventually replacing the bullets in a gun with make-shift blanks and tipping off Luke and Holly to drop and play dead when the piano player shoots them. That's about the whole story line, i have more memories about the return of the REAL Grant Putnam and how he set up DVX Grant for infidelity and attempted murder of Celia..and the later story line when "crazy" Grant kidnaps Anna Devane and keeps her hidden while Duke Lavery and Robert Scorpio compete as to who will find her first. That's all for now, hope this info helps in some way The 1988 appearance has his Grant Putnam kidnap Anna Devane (played by Finola Hughes.)
