Mike Lookinland is best known for playing the youngest Brady of the Bunch, Bobby. These days he’s pretty much out of the spotlight and generally doesn’t seek it out. Maybe this has something to do with the fact that he started acting so young. Before he was cast as Bobby on The Brady Bunch, he was a successful commercial actor, appearing in about 30 commercials from the ages of 7 to 9.
He didn’t always have the easiest time behind-the-scenes on The Brady Bunch. For starters, his hair color was supposed to look more like Peter (Christopher Knight) and Greg (Barry Williams), so they dyed his hair dark brown and straightened it. Sometimes, the lights on set would cause the dye to run down his face. Can you imagine dealing with that as a child?
