The Brady Bunch star Maureen McCormick absolutely loves seeing the world through her brother’s eyes. McCormick played Marcia Brady on The Brady Bunch, which aired from 1969 through 1974. Now, she’s taken to posting some lovely vacation photos. This time, she’s with her brother.
“I LOVE seeing the world through my brother’s eyes,” the actress wrote.
In the past, McCormick has discussed her brother Denny and his disabilities.
‘Back when Denny was born they told my parents that he should be institutionalized or put away and they fought for him,” the actress once said. Now she’s a passionate advocate for people with disabilities. She’s not the only one. Both of her parents are as well.
‘It’s something I grew up with and I’m just very very passionate about,” she said.

“Everyone! I am so thankful to be dancing with my brother Denny! Sending you all our love,” she wrote.
While McCormick Wowed as Marcia Brady, her true impact seems to lie in her life as a sister, advocate, and caring family member.
The Actress Learned a ton From her time on ‘The Brady Bunch’
While it’s been decades since The Brady Bunch ended, McCormick has taken some of the lessons she’s learned on set, particularly from actress Florence Henderson, with her all these years. Florence Henderson played her mother on the show, and the two formed a close bond. They remained close up until Florence Henderson’s death in 2016.
McCormick spent such a good chunk of her formative years with Florence Henderson and the rest of the Brady Bunch cast, and it looks like there was a lot of positive influence. Henderson reportedly was a mother figure to all of the kids on set and was incredibly dedicated to giving them a stable enough environment to work in.
“The biggest life lessons I have learned came from Florence, and that was, being able to find joy like in a big way,” McCormick once said. “I mean, I spent a lot of time with her before she passed away. And I truly believe she taught me so much about finding joy, and I feel such joy again in my life. You know, I’ve gone through so many different things in my life… pretty amazing.”
Whether it’s going to Disneyland and dancing with your brother or diving into advocacy work, Maureen McCormick has seemed to make it a point to find joy all throughout it.
