'The Brady Bunch' Iconic House's Renovation Is Complete
Former child stars of the 60’s American sitcom, “The Brady Bunch” come together for a delightful reunion as they carry out some reforms.
“The Brady Bunch” actors who are now way into their fifties teamed up with HGTV to bring about “A Very Brady Renovation” targeted at refurbishing their 60’s TV home.
The stars who fully joined in the reforms, however, did not envision how lovely their beloved TV home turned out as they expressed gladness.
On Instagram, HGTV posted a pleasing photo of the renovated “Brady” home with the overjoyed cast members.
While some were content with how “the house” came alive again, others could not help being nostalgic. 62-year-old Maureen McCormick (Marcia) said while speaking with PEOPLE:
“I was totally blown away, I felt like I was back at Paramount Studios at stage five, walking in the front door, getting ready to film a scene. I felt Robert [Reed], Florence [Henderson] and Ann B. Davis in that living room so much. I was blown away.”
Coming together for “The Brady Bunch” project, the on-screen siblings got to work on one room each with the expert help of HGTV’s crew.
Barry Williams, 64, who played Greg on the sitcom let his nostalgic feelings flow as his mind played scenes from way back on the set of the series.
The actor said while remembering the late cast members and agreeing with McCormick’s words:
“The memories keep flooding in – episodes, scenes, what happened and what transpired. As Maureen pointed out, we can feel the presence of Robert, Florence, and Annie there with us. Maybe they’re seeing it. It’ll be nice for them to enjoy it too.”
The “Brady Bunch” earlier sat with “Today” hosts, Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie as they talked on their latest project for new series.
Referring to their reunion as “a work of Love,” McCormick explained that HGTV did an excellent job of having them all together after being apart for a long time.
The actors also spoke about the challenges they faced as child stars and how they hold on to the sense of gratitude.
Growing up on the set of “The Brady Bunch” some of the stars had some intriguing experiences to put up a perfect sitcom.
Mike Lookinland who played Bobby was a natural blond whose hair had to be dyed brown to fit in. While Lookinland has his hair darkened, Susan Olsen (Cindy)’s blond hair was further dyed into a brighter blond which affected her hair.
At the commencement of the sitcom, the series producer, Sherwood Schwartz interviewed over 260 kids to put up a suitable cast.
Although it seems over-the-top, the search was worth it!
