    Just discovered Don Murray's son appeared on one of the early episodes of knots.
    Was wondering which other relatives appeared and which roles ?
    These are the ones I can think of:
    1. Joan van ark's daughter vannesa - young Val
    2. William devane's son Josh - young Greg
    3. Michele Lee's son David - sumner group employee (also a student?)
    4. Constance mccashine - Daniel and meg ?

    John pleshette had family ties with David Jacobs through his wife.

    Anyone else ?

    I've often wondered if Margaux Weisman (Constance McCashin's daughter) actually did appear as baby Meg. If it is true that they fired CM while she was pregnant with her daughter, she may not have been in much of a mood to 'help them out' by saving them the $$$ involved with casting a newborn (or newborns) for the part. I'd have to go dig up the episodes to see if there is a credit for the baby in the few episodes of season nine in which she appeared. I'd think they would have just cast a baby or babies to play Meg from the beginning of season nine onwards. I'm guessing it would be easier for CM to play those final scenes with someone else's kid, and of course continuity is easier if the same baby is seen through the whole plotline.

    I think I read somewhere that she did bring Meg .who knows maybe it was easy to work with her on the set, maybe she wanted the extra money etc.
    Joan van ark's daughter did not get credit , so I doubt if they gave credit to a baby.
