Susan Olsen is an actress who began her career as a teen star on the famous show “The Brady Bunch,” where she portrayed Cindy Brady, the Brady family’s youngest member.
Olsen has been mostly absent from the acting scene since the conclusion of the first series. She said that she was not interested in stardom but enjoyed performing.
She said that fame seemed ludicrous to her. Just really absurd. It was like fool’s gold. Her disdain for celebrities did not drive her away from performing entirely; rather, she worked behind the scenes as an acting coach.
According to Olsen’s teaching experience, most of her pupils show a desire for celebrity, but as someone who has experienced its repercussions, the actress constantly reminds them that “fame is a byproduct of good work.”
She is more concerned with developing decent actors than renowned actors, particularly because she teaches youngsters. Olsen grew up watching television, so she’s no stranger to co-star crushes and flings.
For example, during the first season of “The Brady Bunch,” she got to marry Bobby Brady, portrayed by Mike Lookinland.
The marriage was as innocent as it seemed, and the couple remained happy for most of the season, stealing kisses in the dog house. Tiger was the name given to Brady’s dog.
But their onscreen marriage finally dissolved, and their divorce was unique. The cast members agreed to have a reverse wedding.
They performed all of the typical wedding rituals, but instead of kissing, they spat at each other, reversed all of their vows, and went down the aisle backward.
Bobby and Cindy divorced quickly, and it was in a manner that felt good for both of them. Years later, the two remained close, and Olsen named her kid after him.
In 2004, Olsen’s son Michael, who was named after her co-star Lookinland, was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, a kind of autism. Mitch Markwell, her first spouse, is the father of her son.
There isn’t much information about the actress’ kid, but the mother and boy are close. Olsen also posted some photos of them on Instagram.
She confessed in one of their photos that she was still getting the hang of taking selfies, but she was pleased to show off her and Michael hanging out in the kitchen.
Another shot shows the mother and son bonding over a guitar lesson and showing off one of their latest additions to their collection.
The actress has successfully grown her son into a self-sufficient man, and she now gets to enjoy an empty nest and time with her life partner.
The actress was interviewed on JET 1079! She also discussed her path towards acting. Olsen said that she had her first audition for “The Brady Brunch” when she was 17 years old.
When asked how she landed her first audition, Olsen said that she already felt like a professional actress due to her supportive parents, who were also involved in the performing arts.
Her family’s celebrations included so many acts that they were videotaped and converted into advertisements or short films.
During the conversation, she also discussed her first encounter with Chris Fonseca, a comedian, choreographer, and performer. She even joked that people should come to see them fight.
But the two are more than just entertainers; they have been life partners for almost two decades. Fonseca, in addition to performing on stage, is also a teacher, something he and Olsen both enjoy.
Fonseca is an inspirational singer who did not allow his cerebral palsy diagnosis to deter him from following his aspirations. Looking back on her first encounter with him, Olsen couldn’t help but recall it being full of fun and cocktails.
Olsen watched the comic perform and could tell he enjoyed what he did. “I love being in front of people and making them laugh,” Fonseca said.
He claimed that his passion for performing began at an early age. Fonseca remarked that he feels more at ease playing on stage since that is where his passion for the craft originated.
He likes the fact that the platform allows him to control what he presents to the audience, but once he’s off the platform, real life takes over.
Olsen found love in the vivacious Fonseca after two unsuccessful marriages. The two have been together for a long time and certainly have the greatest fun together, whether on stage or at home.
Despite her absence from Hollywood, Olsen has found a way to pass on her passion for acting to the next generation, providing them with the skills they need to handle recognition and success as actors.
