The son of a former Shakespearean actor, Christopher Anton Knight was born on Nov. 7, 1957 in New York. He grew up in the L.A. area, where he began his professional acting career at the age of seven, doing TV commercials and bit parts for shows like Bonanza, Gunsmoke and Mannix.
As the middle child of the Brady clan, Knight eventually surpassed TV brother "Greg" (Barry Williams) as the show's heartthrob, which led directly to increased coverage in teen magazines. Because of his popularity, Knight was also encouraged to record a number of solo songs -- even though he hated singing -- which eventually ended up on an album entitled Chris Knight and Maureen McCormick, a separate effort from the Brady Kids' group albums.
Since The Brady Bunch, he's appeared in several TV shows and movies, including One Day at a Time, Little House on the Prairie and The Love Boat. Knight was also featured in the TV movie Diary of a Hitchhiker, and the features You and Me, Kid, Jumpin' Jack Flash and Good Girls Don't.
Knight is now recognized by a new generation of TV fans; he appeared on a season of The Surreal Life as well as his own spin-off show My Fair Brady, which chronicled his relationship with former America's Next Top Model winner Adrianne Curry. In the summer of 2008, Knight began feuding with his former TV mom, Florence Henderson, when she called his marriage to Curry a fake.
Peter is the Brady's middle child. He has a fragile ego that manifests itself in extremes; often he lets his achievements go to his head while at the same time lets the little things get him down. He celebrates his rescuing of a little girl from a falling shelf of toys, calling himself a hero, but not long after decides he has no personality when some kid at a party says he's dull.
Peter is anything but dull. He may not be too great at fixing bikes or making ice-cream sundaes, but he builds a mean model volcano. He's also great detective and a pretty good reporter. Peter even proves himself to be a fine actor by playing Benedict Arnold in the school play, a role he later lives to regret.
