Adam Rich is best remembered for playing Nicholas Bradford in the classic television series Eight is Enough, which aired from 1977 to 1981. He first appeared on the show when he was eight years old. The actor died under mysterious circumstances, as per his relatives.
On October 12, 1968, Rich was born. Before landing his huge part in Eight is Enough, he had only appeared in a few short productions, including an episode of The Six Million Dollar Man and the TV drama The City.
Following his role as Nicholas Bradford on Eight is Enough, he was frequently cast as a guest star on a variety of television series and stage productions. He also had a recurring role on the TV drama Code Red. His most recent acting and television credits were in a 1993 episode of Baywatch, and his most recent film credit was in Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star in 2003.
Rich had a difficult existence. He first used marijuana when he was 14 years old. He dropped out of high school when he was 17 years old. He nearly died from a valium overdose in 1991. He was arrested in 2002 on the allegation of suspected pharmacy burglary. He was busted for DUI in 2002 and has been committed to treatment several times during his life.
In 1991, Rich delivered an eye-opening interview in the Orlando Sentinel, he remarked, he doesn’t understand why this happened, but he knows he is ill. He suffers from a sickness and is terribly sorry and humiliated about the whole affair. When he was 15, he realized he had spent the most of his life working. He was nearly ready to retire since he was so exhausted. He started hanging around with the wrong crowd.
His loss is heartbreaking for all of us.
It’s a tragedy to lose a cherished kid star. We express our condolences and prayers to Adam Rich and his family and friends.
