- Here's the Story of the Brady Bunch's Christopher Knight Jeff Dwoskin 53:42
Once and forever a Brady! Christopher Knight met life as a child actor, starring as “Peter Brady” in the TV classic hit show The Brady Bunch. A reluctant icon, Christopher has focused his adult years on interests beyond the entertainment industry, particularly the corporate world of computers and high technology.
My guest, Christoper Knight, and I discuss:
- Christopher Knight talks about his appearance on The Masked Singer with fellow Brady boys Barry Williams and Mike Lookinland.
- Christopher reflects on the pressure put on the Brady kids to become singers and his struggle with that based on his lack of singing talent.
- Christopher opens up about his home life during his Brady run and the pressure his Mom put on him to be a singer and her disappointment in The Brady Bunch, which she didn’t deem real art.
- Christopher’s dad had a guest role on the Brady Bunch.
- Auditioning as a kid for so many TV shows before landing his iconic role as Peter Brady. He occasionally bumped into a very young Jodie Foster during auditions.
- Learning to impersonate Humphry Bogart with the help of Lloyd Schwartz – “pork chops and applesauce.”
- Christopher’s pivotal role in Sharknado 6: It’s About Time as Nova’s Grandpa Clarke.
- We discuss Cousin Oliver, Robbie Rist, and the changing dynamic of The Brady Bunch at the time Robbie joined the show.
- Robert Reed’s tension on the set but his love for his Brady family.
- The HGTV’s A Very Brady Renovation and the secret behind the lack of toilets in The Brady Bunch.
