Barry Williams from “Brady Bunch” continued to enjoy success even after the hit show ended.
Williams – who played Greg, the eldest Brady – went on to perform in Broadway and appear on other TV sitcoms.
“There wasn’t really an explanation, so we were working off our own imagination of what they might do.”

Williams and other stars of “Brady Bunch” recently reunited as they revisited the renovated Brady House, which is featured on the HGTV series, “A Very Brady Renovation.”
Aside from Williams, present during the public reveal of the renovated L.A. property were Maureen McCormick (Marcia), Christopher Knight (Peter), Eve Plumb (Jan), Mike Lookinland (Bobby), and Susan Olsen (Cindy).
In 2018, the famous home was purchased for $3.5 million by HGTV.

“I was interested because it was a different take on ‘Brady,'” said Plumb. “There wasn’t really an explanation, so we were working off our own imagination of what they might do.”
As they walked around the renovated house, nostalgia struck Williams hard. He said:
“The memories are so powerful, the nostalgia is so strong — and this is a period of time we’ve talked about for our entire lives."
He added, "It’s not like we lived it and it went away, it stayed with us all this time. But to see the house put together like that, I think brought it all right to the forefront.”
Williams, who has been married three times, is a father to two children.
Williams and other “Brady Bunch” stars paired up with home designers for the series, “A Very Brady Renovation.”
The show documents the overhauling of the house that served as the Brady home’s exterior from 1969 to 1974.
On November 1, 2018, the six Brady siblings came together for the first time in 15 years to announce their taking part in the house’s makeover.
Each actor paired up with designers to fully restore the home for the show. They couldn’t hide their joy and excitement.
“You know when there are times in your life where everything comes together, and it just feels like it was so meant to be, and everything feels right? That’s how this feels,” said Maureen McCormick.
