Personal Quote:

[In 1992] So many of us on these shows, create ersatz families, and it's very difficult to do, not so much for the adults because we're grown actors. But for the kids, that's another story and to make an ensemble group of kids and adults, and make it seem as they live together. And if we accomplish that, we're very pleased. See more »


During hiatus, his The Brady Bunch (1969) co-star, Barry Williams, was introduced by Reed's teacher, Lee Strasberg, for poetry at London's Royal Academy. See more »
