BRADY BUNCH Star Barry Williams Honors Show on DWTS

By Movieguide® Contributor 

THE BRADY BUNCH star Barry Williams opened up about his experience as a contestant on DANCING WITH THE STARS. 

“For one thing, it’s seven days a week,” he shared in an interview with Fox News about his training. “For another thing, I do a complete workout…stretch and practice before I come to rehearsal…that’s new. The workouts consist of endurance training…I’m on a bike, I’m doing lunges…leg and back, stretching, neck, shoulders…everything that moves with the dance needs to be in play.” 

Williams, 69, is competing with his partner Peta Murgatroyd, 37. For their opening dance, they performed to “It’s A Sunshine Day,” sung by Williams and his BRADY BUNCH cast mates on the show.

THE BRADY BUNCH ran for five seasons, from 1969-1974. Williams played Greg Brady.

He also honored his on-screen mother, Florence Henderson, who played Carol Brady. Henderson competed on DWTS in 2010 and died in 2016. 

“I try and channel Florence Henderson, who encouraged me to pursue an invitation for DANCING WITH THE STARS,” Williams told PEOPLE. “Being familiar with my theatrical background, she felt that I could do very well. And at that time, she had just been eliminated and asked if I would carry the torch.”

This past Tuesday, Williams and Murgatroyd performed “Get Ready” by the Temptations to celebrate the show’s “Motown” theme.  

“Williams’ performance with Murgatroyd earned him his first-ever 7 score, which came from guest judge Michael Strahan, leading to a total score of 25 out of 40. The duo’s previous scores were 16 in the season premiere and 15 in last week’s Latin Night,” Yahoo reported. 

DANCING WITH THE STARS airs every Tuesday on ABC at 8 pm Eastern and is also available on Disney+.

Movieguide® previously reported on Williams: 

Though THE BRADY BUNCH only aired for five seasons, the sitcom’s stars say it still has a lasting impact in their hearts and for their fans.

“So, it was sometimes awkward and sometimes fun, but I’ve always enjoyed people watching the show,” Barry Williams, who played Greg, said in a recent interview.

As each of the Brady children grew up on screen, so did the actors and actresses off screen.

“There were a lot of changes,” he said. “You could hear the voice changing, you could see the hair changing, you could see the growth spurts going on with all of us.”

Despite navigating adolescence while filming, Williams said he is thankful for the time on the show.

“We maintain our relationships, we’ve seen all the major events of our lives together: marriages, children sometimes marriages that split. Now our children are graduating,” he said. “We’ve always had a Brady family together. I’m fortunate that I’ve been able to diversify and do different things.”
