Kimberley Bret "Kim" Greist (born May 12, 1958) is an American actress.
Early acting career
Greist was born in Stamford, Connecticut, the daughter of Norma M. (née Abtey) and Edwards Harold Greist, Jr. She was trained for the stage and spent some of her late teenage years as a professional model in Europe. She then returned to the United States at age 20 and launched her acting career in the off-Broadway comedy Second Prize: Two Months in Leningrad; her later stage credits included appearances in the New York Shakespeare Festival.
Films and television
Her first film appearance was in the horror film, C.H.U.D. (1984), soon followed by a guest appearance in the 1985 Miami Vice episode Nobody Lives Forever. Greist also appeared in a few 1980s films, including Brazil (1985), Michael Mann's Manhunter (1986), Throw Momma from the Train (1987) and Punchline (1988). Greist continued to appear in films and television into the 1990s, with roles in such productions as Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey (1993) and Roswell (1994). In 1995, she played Emily Young opposite comedians Sinbad and the late Phil Hartman in the film Houseguest, a Randall Miller-directed family comedy. During the 1990s, Greist also appeared in a number of made-for-television films. After appearing on an episode of Judging Amy in 2002, she disappeared abruptly from the screen.
