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 asparagus] For me growing up in Ireland every Friday nite we would sit down as a family and watch the Brady Bunch. Given a second chance would you do it all over again and what would you change in the way you played your role?

A: I am very proud of the Brady Bunch so I wouldn’t want to change anything. It is sometimes fun to speculate what would have happened and how my career might be different if people didn’t regularly identify me with one role. But I am doing all the things I enjoy - recording, musicals, concerts, writing, producing, and of course acting.

Q: [by kmitchell] In the episode when you joined the Banana Convention, what brand of cigarettes were you smoking?

A: I think they were Marlboros.

Q: [by MBFOO] I was wondering if you had any plans on doing other sitcoms now as a father on the show?

A: I would like to do another sitcom. I have a couple of ideas for one too. I wouldn’t be a father in it though.

Q: [by sqaw] What was it like growing up in front of a camera?

A: It’s kind’ve strange being under the microscope through the teen years. There are a number of changes going on and a ton of awkwardness. I just kept focused on trying to do a good job but I found it painful to watch myself, so for the most part I didn’t. It made me to self-contious.

Q: [by Silly_Love_Songs2001] Dear Barry, Have you been in many commercials? I remember you doing a Shasta commercial in the 70's.

A: When I first started working in I did several commercials. One of them was for Shasta which was a ton of fun playing Sir Lancelot.

Q: [by Christina.Anderson] Do you answer all of your fan mail? What was the best letter you ever read? What kind of goals have you set for your web site?

A: The website is one of the best ways I have of keeping up with my fans. I read all the mail and try and answer as many as possible Doing the Ask Barry section each week is the most practical way of doing it. Thanks for writing and you can bet the site will continue to evolve. At some point I want to include live chats.

Q: [by Lectrode] Did Maureen really get braces?

A: No, Maureen has been blessed with her terrific smile. The braces she wore on the show were real but came off as soon as the episode was filmed.

Q: [by purpleladydi99] I just realized that you were the only Brady brother to stay in front of the camera professionally. Did you ever talk about your careers or know what your future plans were?? Diane.

A: Sure, we talked about our ambitions all the time. I knew even before the Brady Bunch I wanted to include music and theatre to my activities. It’s working out pretty well too. Check out The Sound of Music tour on my website. Happy holidays everyone. And of course keep on groovin’, Barry

Q: [by spalmer] What is the funniest thing that ever happened during an episode shoot?

A: We always had a great time filming. Sometimes we would get kind of punched out toward the end of the day and by mistake call each other by our real names instead of the character names which usually created laughter for us and an additional take for the director. Some of those mistakes actually made it to the airwaves. Check out Growing Up Brady’s episode guide to see which ones.

Q: [by purpleladydi99] Hi Barry, Just wondering if you ever see Michael Lookinland nowadays, and could you tell me one thing about Michael you remember the most from working with him all these years. (What's one thing we don't know about him??)

A: I see Michael and his family fairly often. You may know I hired his son earlier this year to play Michael for the TV Movie Growing Up Brady. They were both on the set the whole time and we got to do a lot of catching up. Most people today don’t know that he spends his time literally behind the camera. He is a camera operator for many TV series and TV Movies.
