Eve Plumb may be well-known for playing Jan Brady on The Brady Bunch, but she is so much more than one character. These days, after the success of A Very Brady Renovation, Eve will be working on her own renovation show called Design At Your Door. In addition, Maureen McCormick (Marcia Brady) will star on the HGTV series with her.\r\n\r\nBefore The Brady Bunch, Eve starred in several commercials starting at the age of 7. She started as Jan Brady in 1969 but had several smaller roles before that. She appeared in The Virginian, Lassie, The Big Valley, Family Affair, Gunsmoke, and more. Pop culture historian Geoffrey Mark has talked about Eve\u2019s role as Jan and how well the show was cast.\r\nEve was already an actress before landing 'The Brady Bunch' role\r\n\r\n\r\nGeoffrey said, "Eve was able to take what could have been a silly situation about playing the middle child who is not quite as pretty as the older sister and not quite as cute as the younger sister, and gave her a real personality and gave the situation seriousness. That\u2019s why we remember 'Marcia, Marcia, Marcia.' She made an impression because she was playing a part. She wasn\u2019t just a cute child actor saying lines."\r\n\r\nRELATED: \u2018Brady Bunch\u2019 Star Eve Plumb Is A Very Talented Painter\r\n\r\nHowever, acting wasn\u2019t always enough for Eve as the years went on. Many say she is a deep thinker and very academic. She is also a talented artist, which explains why she is so great at renovations too! She was always branded as the "reluctant Brady" because she didn\u2019t want to participate in as many reunions as the rest of the cast.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nDuring the height of her fame, Eve appeared in an episode of Here\u2019s Lucy in 1972. She played Lucy\u2019s niece in the episode that also featured Lucie Arnaz and Donny Osmond. Geoffrey also said, "Eve was cast because she could act, otherwise she wouldn\u2019t have been there. Lucille Ball could have chosen anybody, but she chose her because Eve could bring a reality to the character. She wasn\u2019t going to have to worry about bringing some cutesy girl in who didn\u2019t know how to act."\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHe continued, "When you have someone like Lucille Ball hiring you, you have to be good because if you\u2019re not, she will replace you." Later in the \u201870s, she appeared in the TV movie Dawn: Portrait of a Teenage Runaway. The movie was a very different role than Jan Brady. She received a lot of acclaim from the film. Eve said she enjoyed playing a very different type of character. When she got the sequel to Dawn, she chose that instead of The Brady Bunch Hour.\r\nEve turned down 'The Brady Bunch Hour' to work on a movie\r\n\r\n\r\nReportedly, "She only turned down 'The Brady Bunch Hour' because they were hoping it would run for five years like the sitcom had. While she was willing to do a special, she wasn\u2019t willing to become Jan again for five years. But she did all the other reunion things."\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nIn later years, she continues to appear in smaller roles. Of course, when A Very Brady Renovation aired, the entire cast became extremely relevant again. Eve said, "The renovation series was very strange because we spent a lot of time in there filming and then doing some digital stuff and behind the scenes stuff. It was very strange. I think we were finally getting used to the fact that there\u2019s a fourth wall and a ceiling."\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nShe continued, "And certainly we\u2019d seen each other in different groupings over the years for one thing or another, but I think the last time that there was a confluence of all six was about 15 years. Obviously we\u2019re all grown up now and we get along like real people and HGTV offered us an extended family reunion. Just like any family reunion, having different memories of different events. It\u2019s been with me my whole life, so I\u2019ve always been used to it."\r\nLearn more about what Eve is up to these days in this clip:\r\n\r\nAnd if you love\u00a0The Brady Bunch, enjoy our video of some behind the scenes Secrets!
