Maureen McCormick          

Actress Known for "The Brady Bunch" and Season 23 of Dancing With the Stars

Maureen Denise McCormick is an American actress, singer, and author, best known for her role as Marcia Brady in the television series The Brady Bunch.

She made her television debut in 1964 in an episode of Bewitched and played guest roles in programs such as I Dream of Jeannie and My Three Sons before winning the role of "Marcia Brady."
She played that role for the duration of the program's production from 1969 until 1974 and in later Brady Bunch movies. Also during this time, she was asked to lend her voice to the new Chatty Cathy doll.

McCormick also appeared in The Idolmaker (1980) as well as a wide range of other supporting film roles. In the 1980s and 1990s, she ventured into stage acting, appearing in a variety of different roles and productions such as "Wendy Darling" in Peter Pan and "Betty Rizzo" in Grease. McCormick also had a brief career as a recording artist, releasing four studio albums with the Brady Bunch cast as well as touring with them. Her only release as a solo artist to date is a country music album, When You Get a Little Lonely (1995).

Despite professional success on The Brady Bunch and its spin-offs, McCormick struggled largely in her personal life in the years following the original series' end. Addictions to cocaine and quaaludes, as well as bouts of depression and bulimia, all contributed to McCormick losing her reputation for reliability as an actress. Since the 2000s, she has appeared on several reality television series such as VH1's Celebrity Fit Club, CMT's Gone Country (which led to a short-lived spin-off series led by McCormick, Outsiders Inn) and the Australian version of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!, as well as guest spots on a wide range of television series.

In 2008, McCormick published an autobiography, Here's the Story: Surviving Marcia Brady and Finding My True Voice, which debuted at number four on The New York Times bestseller list and garnered significant publicity and mild controversy.

In 2016 McCormick competed on Dancing with the Star with dancing partner Artem Chigvintsev. The pair came in 8th place.
