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 THAMPTON] Dear Barry: Ever since the Brady Bunch, have you ever actually thought about having your own show like Frasier. Have you thought about having your very own comedy.

A: Sure I think about it regularly and have tried to get a few ideas made into series. It has a lot to do with timing and the type of project but I enjoy the work and I think will do another show soon.

Q: [by horror83] Have you ever met Carroll O Connor the one and only Archie Bunker?

A: I have worked with Rob Reiner and Sally Struthers a few times but never had the pleasure of meeting Mr. O’Conner. I am a big fan though.

Q: [by patrickfromtx] Of the people who appeared on The Bradys (in 1990) that did not appear on the Brady Bunch, who was your favorite to work with?

A: Martha Quinn, who played Bobby Brady’s wife was a lot of fun. She was a huge fan of our original show and was so excited to become a "Brady". She had some great stories from her MTV VJ days and has become a friend.

Q: [by ktf0805] Have you had a chance to see The OC which has Adam Brody in it who played you in your movie Growing Up Brady?

A: Sure, and I think he is doing a great job. I understand he used his role on Growing Up Brady in his demo tape which helped him land the job on OC.

Q: [by _cyberchick20_] Hi Mr. Barry Williams aka Greg Brady: My name is Rachael. I'm twenty five years of age. Your one of my faves! I was wondering What was your impression of New Hope Pa and the Bucks County Play House? I remember a "LONG" time ago you did the play The City Of Angels there. What's the usual size of the stage that you like to perform plays on? Don't worry your comment is safe with me.

A: I loved playing over at Bucks County. That was a part of a summer tour I did with that show, which followed nearly a year on the road with the Broadway National Tour. Bucks is a very artistic town, not too far from the City with lots of great little restaurants. Theatres and venues range in size. I have sung in stadiums with over 50,000 people and local theatres with 99 seats. Probably an average size is about 2,000. And thanks for keeping my comments safe.

Q: [by lu100_letellier] Hi Barry, I wanted you to explain me what was the role of Frank and Sadie Delfino, in your book you define them as "stand in" and that when the kids grew Mr. and Ms. Delfino had to walk around the set with boxes…did u and Maureen also had stand ins?

A: Every actor has a "stand in." They assist the crew with preparing shots to be filmed by taking the actors’ place while the camera and lights are set. This saves the company time so the actors can prepare for the scene. Frank and Sadie are little people and as the series continued Michael and Susan outgrew them. To continue to approximate their size Frank and Sadie stood atop apple boxes to match our growing family. Yes, I had a stand in too, but I had a couple of different people during our five year run.

Q: [by heyfalcon] Did you ever consider working as a producer in Hollywood? If so, what projects would interest you?

A: Movies and I like the type that tell stories like Lost In Translation or Mystic River more than action adventure special effects types of films.

Q: [by iluvsclub7uk] Hi Barry, I'm Sarah and I'm 15 years old and I'm a huge fan of S club (even though they have split I still love them) I have Hollywood 7 on boxset and wondered what it was like working with them and what did you think of Jo O'meara (who is my favorite)?

A: We had a blast doing the filming. I got on with them great (they were Brady fans too) and they were a terrific group who worked very hard. I have to admit I got along with Jo the best ’cause we had the most in common, but they were all great. I am disappointed they broke up. I am sure they had a lot more good music to make.

Q: [by aveg10] I saw Growing Up Brady and I thought it was very good. But did you really start kissing Marcia when you two did a scene together?

A: Well, not exactly. In Growing Up Brady, I was showing how difficult it was to contain myself. I wanted to kiss her when we were doing scenes but our first kiss was really during the Hawaiian episodes after filming, on the beach, under a beautiful moon.

Q: [by leanne82] Hi Barry, it was great to have you back in Australia recently, I enjoyed seeing you on several TV shows while you were here. I just wanted to ask you how you enjoyed your stay, how the shows went and what was the highlight of your stay this time.

A: Had a great time down under. The shows were very well received and I was booked all over the country. Have to say the highlight of my trip was taking the "bridge climb" out over Sydney Harbor. What a thrill. I did the sunset climb and we came back when it was dark. Just beautiful.
