Susan Davis (née Bluestein; born May 27, 1946) is an American casting director and the widow of actor Brad Davis.
Born in Manhattan and raised in Queens, New York, Bluestein has spent much of her career casting television movies, including The People vs. Jean Harris, A Piano for Mrs. Cimino, Casualties of Love: The Long Island Lolita Story, and Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All. She cast multiple episodes of the series Punky Brewster, Providence and JAG and has cast every episode of NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles since their premieres. In 1995, she won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Casting for her work on NYPD Blue.
Bluestein's feature film casting credits include Crimes of the Heart, Who's Harry Crumb?, and Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey. Other recent projects are the 2008 BBC/HBO docudrama House of Saddam and Dilli 6.
Bluestein and Davis were married in 1976 and had one child, Alex, a transgender man. In 1985, Davis was diagnosed HIV-positive, a condition the couple kept secret until just prior to his death by assisted suicide in 1991. Shortly after his death she co-authored a memoir, After Midnight: The Life and Death of Brad Davis with Hilary De Vries.
