The Greg Brady Project

Welcome to the official Barry Williams' blog

My friends call me Barry. From time to time I also hear the name Greg. Yeah, as in Greg Brady. The Brady Bunch represents a fun time in my life. But it’s only part of the story. There’s more to say and that’s what The Greg Brady Project is all about – a place to say it. So, I’ve invited some friends to join me and share their perspectives on the Brady’s, the 70′s and just about everything else. Now, I’m inviting you…

Q: [by dutch_59701] In the episode Try, Try Again I saw that Bob cooks a gourmet supper for the family at the end of the episode. Question is: Was he a very good cook and did you and the rest of the kids ever have dinner at his house once in a while?

A: I don’t think Robert Reed was known for his cuisine. He was very knowledgeable of good restaurants however and we did dine together on occasion. He also had a fondness for Haagen-Dazs ice cream.

Q: [by terrifrickwcoil] Growing up I was a fan of the Brady Bunch, now I am anxious to watch reruns with my daughter. Our daughter is interested in acting, modeling, doing commercials or prints ads. Any suggestions on how to get started in this business, especially since we live in Ohio and not in California or New York.

A: Well, first you have to get out of Ohio and move to California or New York. Until then, local theatre companies and school programs can be helpful. Also check out Michael Shurtleff’s AUDITION and Gary Marshall’s WAKE ME WHEN IT’S FUNNY. Break a leg.

Q: [by achabak] Whatever happen to s Club 7 and do you still keep in touch with any other members?

A: I very much enjoyed working for the season on S Club 7. When they moved back to their native England I lost touch with them and I believe the group has disbanded.

Q: [by Astephanie7] Hi! there Barry, I just got the best of The Brady Bunch CD. Want was the Best song for you on this C.D.? My is We'll Always Be Friends also Sweet Sweeheart too Barry.

A: I like Cheyenne as a solo effort and of course Sunshine Day the “smile” song.

Q: [by jbeckster99] Hi Barry, I had posted awhile back but I'm not sure that it went through. First off I wanted to say that I like so many others loved the Brady Bunch. I also remember watching you in the tv series Lancer episode Bloodrock. Do you have any memories to share from that time on Lancer,James Stacy Wayne Maunder Andrew Duggan? There are quite a few fan groups of that series and they would love to hear your thoughts if you have any . Thanks for your time. Becky

A: Doing that show made me want to be a cowboy. I bought a quarter horse shortly after that and have enjoyed horseback riding ever since. I also recall that it was directed by the very talented Gene Nelson.

Q: [by tessa_4u] Hi Barry, I don't think this has been mentioned yet. You have the most amazing eyes I have ever seen! I wondered if Brandon has them as well or if his are more like his Mom's? I'm also curious if you are a collector of any one thing? (I'm a Titanic buff and have a small collection of stuff =) What interests you personally aside from what people might normally associate you with?

A: I like to collect photos and have many from the various projects I have been involved with over the years. Regarding Brandon: he has amazing blue eyes and long eyelashes. I am not saying he “got his eyes from me” but many people have asked if I made him all by myself.

Q: [by andrew] Barry, first, thanks for your work on a great show. All these many years later, it still entertains. My question is a bit esoteric: how do you think Greg Brady would have viewed the future that the writers crafted for him? I was surprised to watch the reunions and learn that Greg had become a doctor – and I get the sense that Greg surprised himself as well. I know this is probably making way too much of what is, after all, a work of fiction. But I'd be very interested in your thoughts on how Greg might view his life, since you know him better than anyone else.

A: I had always hoped the writers would take Greg in the direction that my own career was taking. Like Rick Nelson from Ozzie and Harriet. I easily could have seen Greg taking up a career in show business like Johnny Bravo. Someone else came up with the OB. GYN. concept.

Q: [by sck869] As a collector of Brady Bunch memorabilia I was wondering if you also have a collection. How do you feel seeing your likeness on dolls and items like that. I hope you get a percentage! Thanks, Scott Keith.

A: I think it’s a trip to be a Bobble Head, a key ring, on a calendar etc. I have many of the memorabilia items but not a complete collection. I also don’t display the items but keep them stored. I think my three year old son may appreciate them in the years to come.

Q: [by gordonsfiveanddime] Dear Barry – What was your favorite childhood candy? I own a nostalgic candy shop, and I'm sure my customers would be interested. Shannon Gordon

A: Almond Rocca and chocolate covered caramel. mmmmmm

Q: [by JosieCashew] Do you remember much about the time you worked with Rita Wilson? I did read that it was her first professional acting job.

A: I did not have any scenes with Rita. I do remember her being there but we did not have much interaction. I think it is cool that her first job was on our show.
