Cindy Brady and Johngy (Brady?)

I met Susan Olsen for the first time a couple years ago.  She was doing a convention with former castmates, Christopher Knight, Mike Lookinland and Robbie Rist.  In May at the Motor City Comic Con, she was joined again by Lookinland.
It was only natural that the two Brady kids would have adjacent booths.  Their banter was also very natural.  It was nice to witness.  They seemed like real siblings.  Both had an 8x10 photo of the other and were continually doodling on it, much like a sibling would do to another sibling's photo.  It was fun to watch.
Olsen said she keeps in touch with the other Brady castmates and loves doing these conventions, especially with any combination of other Brady mates.
Count Olsen as one of the former young stars who has avoided the usual pitfalls of early stardom.  Actually, I think that can be said for all of the Brady kids.  Some day I hope to meet the rest of the cast to see first hand.
