Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

An attractive, blonde stage-trained player, Greist first came to prominence when she was chosen by director Terry Gilliam to play the enigmatic heroine of "Brazil" (1985). She went on to give a fine performance as the wife of a detective stalking a serial killer in Michael Mann's "Manhunter" (1986) and was featured in "Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey" (1993) and its sequel "Homeward Bound II: Lost in San Francisco" (1996). Greist is perhaps best remembered for her TV roles as a public relations executive mixed up in intrigue in "Wiseguy" (CBS, 1989) and as the mentally ill wife of Mandy Patinkin's Dr. Jeffrey Geiger on the CBS medical drama "Chicago Hope" (1994-95).
