Susan Olsen Speaker Profile
Susan Marie Olsen (born August 14, 1961) is a former American child television actress and current animal welfare advocate. Olsen is best known for her role as Mike & Carol Brady's (played by Robert Reed and Florence Henderson) youngest daughter, Cindy Brady, on the 1970s television sitcom The Brady Bunch for the full run of the show, from 1969-1974.
After landing a number of supporting roles, most notably, Ironside, Gunsmoke, and Julia, at age seven she was cast as Cindy on The Brady Bunch. She was the youngest actress ever to appear in the series.
As an adult Olsen has expressed that portraying Cindy made peer relations difficult for her as a child. Olsen has said that the episode she dislikes the most is the "tattletale" episode in which Cindy snitches on her brothers and sisters. Because of the episode, she was shunned by her real-life peers who did not understand the difference between actors and their characters.
Olsen has appeared in all "Brady Bunch" reunion movies, with the exception of A Very Brady Christmas in 1988, because she was on her honeymoon with her first husband. In that movie, Cindy Brady was played by Jennifer Runyon.
On Sunday, April 22, 2007, Olsen and her fellow cast members were honored with the TV Pop Culture Awards on the TV Land Awards. It was noted that this is the first award that the Brady Bunch has ever won.
During The Brady Bunch production, it was noted that even though her 'Brady series father,' star Robert Reed, was suffering a great deal of unhappiness (both on and off the set), Olsen continued to develop a wonderful on- and off-screen relationship with him, along with Florence Henderson, who played her TV mother.
During a hiatus, she, along with Reed and other castmates, would often go out on vacations. One such vacation was a trip to Kings Island Amusement Park in Mason, Ohio, during the fifth and final season. At the end of that season, she was very aware of Reed's misbehaviour, off the set, mainly in relation to not speaking scripted dialogue (poor character dialogue being a point of an ongoing, long-term argument between Reed and series - Writer, Creator, Producer - Sherwood Schwartz). Due to an endplay argument with Schwartz, Reed was written out of the script and did not appear in the final episode of the series, "The Hair-Brained Scheme".
Olsen remained close to Reed until his death on May 12, 1992. She, along with her Brady Bunch castmates, attended Reed's funeral, with the exception of Robert Reed's real-life daughter, Karen Rietz (who guest-starred on one episode of The Brady Bunch) and her TV father's real-life mother, Helen Rietz.[
