‘The Brady Bunch’: Peter Brady Gets the Vampire Treatment in Christopher Knight’s Latest Message to Fans

by Joe Rutland

Obviously, Halloween is a time where people dress up. Leave it to Christopher Knight of “The Brady Bunch” to give it a throwback look.

Knight, who played the middle brother Peter Brady on the ABC sitcom, dug up a photo from his days on the show.

It’s definitely going to send shivers up your spine. Maybe you’ll have nightmares about Dracula.

Well, here you go, Outsiders.

Much like some other cast members on “The Brady Bunch,” Knight found himself looking for work beyond show business.

He actually became a businessman in the computer industry and Knight became very successful.

But Knight also knows that people who see him will always connect him to the sitcom.

He talked about the ups and downs of being on “The Brady Bunch” in a New York Post Brady reunion.

“I was a young leading man and wanted to get beyond that,” Knight said. “But at the same time, I had the feeling I was being tethered to the show and it was going to create a burden in being considered a serious adult.”

Knight said it did become something that he owes everything in his life to all the time.

“What it really has provided is this wholeness with this community that’s huge,” he said. “I’m a member of everyone’s family and that engenders this great outpouring of brotherhood and love.”

‘The Brady Bunch’ Star Talks About How Being A Celebrity Is Double-Edged Sword

Knight had a chance to offer some thoughts about fame and being a celebrity.

He shared them in an interview on “Really Famous with Kara Mayer Robinson.” 

Knight said fame should be carefully experienced.

“Fame. Well, fame can be powerful,” he said. “It can be destructive. It’s uh, it’s like fire. It can be useful, but you can also burn down the town and yourself by getting a little too intimate with it and trusting it too much.”

Then about being a celebrity, Knight said he sees them as the same thing.

“I mean, fame is really, I guess, you know, can be that negative as well as positive,” he said. “And, celebrity seems to be somebody whom we – for some reason – put up on a pedestal and treat special. They say that in the United States our celebrities are [the] replacement for royalty that we don’t have.”

Sometimes, being anonymous can be quite useful. Knight said there’s “a ton of power in it.”

“And, too much exposure is just that – too much exposure,” he said, “and is perhaps an indication that somebody needs too much from other people if they’re buying into their own celebrity.”
