Child actors fascinate, and child actors who grow up and spill the beans positively enrapture. Maureen McCormick, who came to fame as sitcomdom's most famous big sister Marcia Brady, talks about her new memoir tonight at Book Soup. "Here's the Story" does detail McCormick's drug use as an adult -- much was made of it in the days leading up to the book's release -- but "Here's the Story" also contains moving nuggets of building a whole life after finding worldwide fame that lasted long after her show went off the air, thanks to the magic of reruns.
We can't imagine trying to grow into adulthood while a show we did a decade before was playing on constant loop around the globe several times a day. A very seminal, pretty excellent show, of course, but "The Brady Bunch" was certainly one of the first major series to remain in the stratosphere years after they turned out the last light in the studio. And we're not sure we'd like anything we were doing a decade ago to be playing anywhere right now.
With that in mind, we're keen to hear/read what Maureen McCormick has to say about fame, a childhood spent in the spotlight and finding yourself after age 50. And if she has a few juicy Davy Jones stories, we're all ears for those, too.
