Maureen McCormick, who played Marcia Brady in The Brady Bunch, commented on her fellow former child star during her appearance at the Los Angeles Mission Thanksgiving Dinner on Wednesday.
McCormick is just six years younger than Cassidy and was also a popular teen star. The Brady Bunch and The Partridge Family both aired on ABC during the early '70s.
Despite her own teen star status, McCormick said she always wanted to be a member of the Partridge Family cast and she always loved Cassidy.
“I wanted to be a member of that family on that bus with all that '70s love,” McCormick said. “I loved him so much. Such a good human, so much love.”
A public memorial service is in the works for fans and friends to pay tribute to the late actor.
