Celebrity Eve Plumb was born on April 29, 1958, in Burbank, California. She appeared in television commercials in the age of 6, and was cast as Jan Brady, the longsuffering middle sister on the 1970s sitcom The Brady Bunch. The show ran for five years, after which Plumb got parts in numerous made-for-TV movies. She also appeared on stage as well as in motion pictures. Plumb married twice and is a gifted naturalistic painter.
Her mom, Flora Plumb, worked as a dancer, and her dad, Neely Plumb, was an RCA music producer. Her sibs are Flora, Benjamin and Catherine. Flora Plumb is likewise an actress.
Eve Plumb started her performing career in television in the age of 6, appearing in toy commercials for Mattel. During the the next couple of years, she got parts in The Virginian, The Big Valley, Lassie, It Takes a Thief, Mannix and Family Affair, among other TV series.
The show ran for five years, from 1969 to 1974.
Her place in the family made for some memorable storylines that contained Jan’s attempts to seek out her very own individuality and confront her insecurities as the middle kid. In one single episode, she spouted out the now-well-known and frequently parodied line, “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!”
(Years afterwards, she attended California State University in Northridge, California, and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in theatre.)
In 1976, Plumb, apparently not planning to sign a five-year contract, determined to not join up with the remaining cast in their very first reunion effort, a song and dance variety show called The Brady Bunch Variety Hour. She was replaced in the show by Geri Reischl (who sadly earned the nickname “the imitation Jan Brady”). The show ran for only nine episodes. The exact same year, Plumb decided to play against type when she took the part of a young hooker in the made-for-TV movie Dawn: Portrait of a Teenage Runaway (1976).
Plumb would afterwards be the only real surviving cast member who failed to attend when her fellow Brady stars taken TV Land’s Pop Culture Prize (2007).
She appeared in the made-for-TV movie Little Women in 1978, as well as in the show of the exact same name the next year.
Plumb after played the mom on Fudge, the 1990s show predicated on novels by Judy Blume. She went to appear on the favorite game show The Weakest Link in 2001, the daytime soap opera All My Children in 2003 as well as the nighttime soap opera Army Wives in 2013.
Plumb wed light tech Rick Mansfield in 1979. The couple divorced two years after. In 1995, she wed computer analyzer Kenneth Pace.
Plumb is a critically acclaimed naturalistic painter, creating substantial oil paintings of everyday life scenes. She paints from her Laguna Beach, California, studio. Also, Plumb has done voiceover work for California tourism ads.
