Grant spent his childhood in hometown, and after finishing high school, enrolled at Ithaca College, Ithaca, NY, from which he graduated with a BA degree in Drama and Broadcasting. He also attended Schiller College in Paris, where he studied International Relations, and then London Polytechnic and Schiller College London, and University of London’s Birkbeck College.

He moved to Los Angeles, California in the mid- ‘70s, and soon after started auditioning for roles, and landed a minor part in the TV series “Emergency” in 1976. The following year he portrayed Jack Benson in the drama film “All the King’s Horses”, appearing next to Dee Wallace and Anne Bellamy. The same year he was cast in the role of David Bradford in the TV series “Eight Is Enough”, taking the role from Mark Hamill who only played David in the pilot episode. Grant featured in 111 episodes of the series, which significantly increased his wealth, and also his popularity. While the show lasted, Grant appeared in couple of films, including the drama “Hot Rod” (1979). Following the end of the show, Grant continued to seek new acting engagements and eventually landed the role of Sgt. Garvey in the made-for-television film “High Powder” in 1982, and in 1983 he was selected for the role of Chris Deegan in the soap opera “Dynasty” (1983-1987), both adding to his net worth.

In the late ‘80s, Grant moved to Pacific Northwest, leaving California and Hollywood but continued his acting career, primarily in the role of Rick Pedersen in the TV series “Northern Exposure” (1990-1992). He then found a job at KING-TV as a contributor to the TVsshow “Evening Magazine”. He took a step forward in 1999, when he became the host of the travel show “Northwest Backroads”, and has been hosting the show since then, increasing Grant’s net worth to a large degree.

With the dawn of the new century, Grant ventured into voice acting and made his debut in the video game, “Star Fox: Assault” (2005), voicing Wolf O’Donnell”, and the same year voiced Harlan Wade in the video game “F.E.A.R.: First Encounter Assault Recon”. Two years later he voiced Engineer in the short video “Meet the Engineer”, and in 2009 repeated the role of Harlan Wade in the sequel “F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin”. In recent years, Grant returned to screen roles, appearing in the drama “Redeemed” (2014), and “The Case for Christ” (2017), starring Mike Vogel, Erika Christensen and Faye Dunaway. Also he will portray Sheriff Preston in the western “County Line”, scheduled for release later this year.

Regarding his personal life, Grant has been married to Deborah Lynn Ketcham since 1978; the couple has three children together.

Grant is a part of the Presbyterian Church, and is quite active within Seattle’s Presbyterian community.
