See the full live interview of Barry Williams, Christopher Knight, Mike Lookinland, and Susan Olsen who reminisced about the iconic 1970s sitcom and paid tribute to the late Florence Henderson who portrayed the mother. The replay and more details below.




Four of the surviving cast members of ‘The Brady Bunch’ — Barry Williams (Greg), Christopher Knight (Peter), Mike Lookinland (Bobby) and Susan Olsen (Cindy) — had a live interview with Matt Lauer in Studio 1A 48 years after the premiere of the iconic sitcom. Absent from the reunion were Maureen McCormick (Marcia) and Eve Plumb (Jan).

Florence Henderson died just a few months ago, in November 2016. The father was portrayed by Robert Reed who died in 1992. The family housekeeper, Alice was portrayed by Ann B. Davis who died in 2014.

Williams said of Florence Henderson, “She was a mentor, a friend. We learned from her.” He went on to say, ‘Mostly, she loved to make people laugh.

Knight said, “She was great humanity. Everyone she met felt better about themselves and about the world around them after having spent a moment with Florence.”

They also spoke about what it was like decades later to be thought of, in the public mind as child actors, forever associated with these iconic role. Knight said, “I had to reach peace with it in my 20s, because I tried to get away from it, thinking it would die. Then I had an epiphany that it was always going to be in the room before me. It was always going to be in the room after me.”

Olsen said, “You spend a little while trying to run away from it, but you can’t.” And Lookinland noted that in the passage of time “our fans have grandchildren.”

Later in the third hour, during ‘Today’s Take,’ they had a live interview with Al Roker and continued their discussion of the sitcom and its impact on pop culture.
