3/25 - Eve Plumb

Eve Aline Plumb  - "The Brady Bunch"
Eve Aline Plumb (born April 29, 1958 in Burbank, California) is an American actress and painter. She is also a former child actress. Plumb is best known for her portrayal of Jan Brady in the television sitcom The Brady Bunch.   Eve played Eve Bowers a terminally ill classmate of Buffy and Jody in the Family Affair episode Christmas Came a Little Early.  In the 1969–74 ABC hit series The Brady Bunch, Plumb portrayed Jan Brady, one of three sisters. Various episodes included her character's insecurity over wearing glasses, embarrassment over not having a boyfriend, jealousy of her older sister, Marcia, and concerns over her future appearance.  In 1976, Plumb appeared in the made-for-television movie Dawn: Portrait of a Teenage Runaway, and joined the LA-based Groundlings improv comedy troupe.  Plumb was the only original cast member who chose not to participate in the 1976–77 Brady Bunch Hour variety show. During production of the show, Plumb appeared as Beth in NBC productions of Little Women, both a TV movie and a short-lived series.  Plumb worked steadily on stage and in television roles through the 1990s. She appeared in the Saturday morning sitcom Fudge (1995–1997) as the title character's mother, Mrs. Ann Hatcher, and in the movie Fudge-A-Mania (1997). She was also the original Pam Burkhart on That '70s Show (only seen in episode 6 "The Keg"). In addition, Plumb made a cameo appearance in the 1988 movie I'm Gonna Git You Sucka.  She appeared as one of the "Strangers" on the December 18, 2006 premiere episode of the NBC game show Identity. She was introduced at the start of the show as "Eve Plumb from The Brady Bunch." The contestant incorrectly selected her as an "Academy Award Winner," despite host Penn Jillette cautioning the contestant that The Brady Bunch was a TV show and the Academy Awards were for films. Plumb's actual identity was a painter.  In August 2008, she appeared on an episode of Days of our Lives. In addition to acting, she has been painting for over 20 years and is now enjoying success being carried by select galleries across the country.
