Clay was a contender for the role of Wilma Deering in the Buck Rogers in the 25th Century but lost the role when Erin Gray returned to reprise her role from the theatrical release. Clay later guest starred in the Buck Rogers episode "Vegas in Space", playing "Marla Landers", who briefly partnered with Rogers. Clay appeared as a guest star on a number of TV series including Father Murphy, L.A. Law, and The Edge of Night (she originated the role of Raven Alexander, before Sharon Gabet took over the role). Clay was also married to actor Joe Lambie who played Logan Swift, one of the husbands of her character on The Edge of Night. In 1981, she appeared in The Legend of the Lone Ranger and in 1983 she had a small role in WarGames. In 1985, she played Jacqueline Kennedy in the mini-series Robert Kennedy & His Times. She was a founding member of The New York Acting Unit, a Shakespearean repertory group, and the co-author, producer and director of King of the City, a drama about Al Capone.
She attended The Ethel Walker School in Simsbury, Connecticut. She graduated from Smith College, then earned a Master's in Education from Harvard University.
The cause of her death is disputed. Some sources say she died of breast cancer, however the user-edited Internet Movie Database site says her death was caused by a heart ailment. The Los Angeles Times reported that she died "after a lengthy illness" and that she was a Christian Scientist.
The Valley Theatre League of Los Angeles created the Juanin Clay Lifetime Achievement Award in her memory.
