He is best known for playing the role of David, the oldest son, on Eight is Enough for five seasons.
Grant Goodeve first took the role of David following the resignation of Mark Hammill, the actor who portrayed Luke Skywalker of Star Wars fame. With the correct belief that Star Wars would be a success, Hammill left the show after the pilot, making room for Goodeve to take on the role. Early in the show, he dated Laurie Walters, the actress who played his television sister. He eventually married Debbie Ketchum, however, in 1978.
He also appeared for two seasons in the recurring role of Rick Pedersen, the ill-fated bush pilot in the TV drama Northern Exposure, which was produced in the northwestern U.S. Goodeve's work also includes numerous episodic television appearances, the role of Woody on the daytime soap opera One Life to Live, as well as roles in several made-for-television movies and feature films. Goodeve is also a singer, and has made appearances as lead vocalist in several parody songs by Bob Rivers.
He currently hostsIf Walls Could Talk on Home and Garden Television, along with a series of historical home specials titled, Homes of our Heritage for HGTV. Grant has been the host of KING-TV's Northwest Backroads since the show premiered in April 1998. Grant has been a contributor to Evening Magazine since 1990.
Born in Connecticut, he makes his home in Washington state with wife Debbie. They have three college-age children, Katie, Emily and Mac.
