Executive summary: Marcia on The Brady Bunch
Maureen McCormick, best known as Marcia Brady on The Brady Bunch, first gained notice as Baby Miss San Fernando Valley at age six. By age eight she was acting in commercials and sitcoms, including My Three Sons and Bewitched.
McCormick, playing the Bradys' oldest daughter, was an object of many young men's affections, but she had "a little crush" on Eve Plumb, who played the middle sister Jan. During their time on The Brady Bunch, McCormick and Plumb tried to appear on screen braless under their shirts. Plumb was caught and chastised almost immediately, while McCormick -- being less endowed -- succeeded until a chilly day filming outdoors gave her away. At one point she and costar Barry Williams, who played her stepbrother Greg, slept together.
After The Brady Bunch, McCormick voiced Marcia Brady in the cartoon The Brady Kids, returned for the subsequent series The Brady Brides and The Brady Bunch Hour, and the reunion shows Brady Bunch Home Movies, The Brady Girls Get Married, A Very Brady Christmas, Bradymania, and Still Brady After All These Years. She was missing in action for The Bradys in 1990, but contributed her recollections for Pop-Up Brady in 2001.
She reportedly asked for and got a higher salary than the other grown-up Brady kids for some of the reunions. "She can get away with more," says her TV brother Christopher Knight, "asking for more money and so forth, because she was the fantasy of many young men growing up who are now the guys running studios."
McCormick recorded a country CD, When You Get a Little Lonely, in 1995.
