Robyn Griggs had a long career in film and television

Robyn Griggs' acting credits included roles in feature films, television shows, and stage plays, but she was arguably synonymous with the daytime soap operas "One Life to Live" and "Another World," both of which she was a part of during the early '90s.

"One Life to Live" saw her play a character named Stephanie Hobart for six episodes (per IMDb), and, according to Yahoo, the performance led to Griggs being nominated for a Young Artist Award. The actress joined the cast of "Another World" shortly after her tenure on "One Life to Live" came to an end. She was one of several performers to portray the Maggie Cory character, appearing in 21 episodes between 1993 and 1995.

Outside of the aforementioned soap operas, Griggs also starred in some low-budget horror films, including "Zombiegeddon," "The Absence of Light," and "Shadows in the Woods," among others.
