The Brady Bunch was one of the more iconic shows of the 1970s. It lasted for many years, which meant the stars of the program, like Christopher Knight, had all sorts of time to work with fellow cast members and get to know them quite well. It was one of the great things about the show, that because the show was so successful that these kind of opportunities became readily available. A lot of the cast members, like Knight, grew up on the set together. Speaking of Knight, he recently opened up about life long connection to co-stars that he had.

Knight said, “There’s always something that brings us all back together. And that’s part of the reason saying ‘Yes!'” Because the cast enjoys working with anoher and clearly misses it to an extent. He added, “These are folks I met 53 years ago that I haven’t been able toget away from them and I wouldn’t want it any other way.”

Knight loves working with the castmembers that he grew up with, that much is clear. Working on the show at that age clearly played a big role in Knight’s life and the rest of the cast.

Who Was Knight Closest with on ‘The Brady Bunch’?

Knight confirmed in the above interview that he is still close with the cast today, but what about when they were actually still filming the show? Who was he closest to at that point in time?

Knight from The Brady Bunch revealed to the New York Post, “It was Mike [Lookinland]. I’m a little Huck Finn-ish and was looking to explore, and he was my little explorer buddy, although he always fashioned himself to be an adult. Only later in the show or even after did we the show we become closer and closer friends. He always cracked me up and was always great company. I would consider him my closest buddy. If I got into a little bit of trouble, it’s probably because I was trying to drag him into a little bit of trouble. I teased Maureen [McCormick] mercilessly. She couldn’t be more different from me — she was so prissy and nice and clean, and I needed to dirty her up.”

And there you have it. His little brother on The Brady Bunch became one of his closest buddies later in life, too. It’s also interesting that he admitted that he teased Maureen McCormick a lot on the show, but clearly the two have moved on since then.

Knight is happy about his time on The Brady Bunch and wouldn’t change a thing about the impact it has had on his career, “I was a a young leading man and wanted to get beyond that, 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. But it became this thing that I owe everything to…”
