Grant Williams was born on Aug 18, 1931 in USA. Grant Williams's big-screen debut came with Outside the Law directed by Jack Arnold in 1956, strarring Don Kastner. Grant Williams is known for Hawaiian Eye directed by Edward Dein, Poncie Ponce stars as Kim Quisano and Connie Stevens as Cricket Blake. The upcoming new movie Grant Williams plays is Doomsday Machine which will be released on Jul 08, 1976.

As a child, Williams acted in summer stock productions. After graduation from high school he joined the Air Force for a four-year stint. Then, returning to New York, he took acting classes with Lee Strasberg. A few minor Broadway roles followed as did parts on some live TV dramas. One of these parts caught the eye of a talent agent and Williams signed with Universal in 1956. Universal put him into several supporting roles -- most notably as the gas-station stud in Écrit sur du vent (1956) -- but the high point of his career came when he played the title role in L'homme qui rétrécit (1957). Director Jack Arnold said that Williams gave an Oscar-worthy performance because, in many special-effects scenes, he could only imagine his surroundings and his fellow actors. In 1959, Williams moved over to Warner Brothers which cast him in the Hawaiian Eye (1959) TV series. After this, Williams' career faded. His last appearance may have been on a Family Feud (1976) episode in 1983 which featured other Hawaiian Eye (1959) alumni. A lifelong bachelor, Williams died in 1985.
