FameRank: 4

"Spalding Rockwell Gray" was an American actor and writer. He is known for the autobiographical One-person show/monologues that he wrote and performed for the theater in the 1980s and 1990s.

Theater critics John A. Willis/John Willis and Ben Hodges described his monologue work as "trenchant, personal narratives delivered on sparse, unadorned sets with a dry, White Anglo-Saxon Protestant/WASP, quiet mania". Gray achieved celebrity status for his monologue Swimming to Cambodia, which was adapted into a film in 1987 by filmmaker Jonathan Demme. Other one-man shows by Gray that were captured on film include Monster in a Box, directed by Nick Broomfield, and Gray's Anatomy (film)/Gray's Anatomy, directed by Steven Soderbergh.

Gray died in New York City, New York, of an apparent suicide in 2004. Steven Soderbergh made a 2010 documentary film about Gray's life entitled And Everything Is Going Fine.
