The Brady Bunch's Susan Olsen (aka Cindy) Remembers the Time Florence Henderson Saved Her Life

Susan Olsen, the actress who played Cindy on The Brady Bunch, is opening up about the death of the show’s matriarch Florence Henderson.

One of her most vivid memories of her time with Florence as a child is when they were filming the show in Hawaii and the actress saved her life.

The cast and crew were filming on an outrigger and Susan fell over the side. Florence hooked her ankles under a seat and reached over the boat to pull the young actress out of the water. “I didn’t have any family on that outrigger to calm me down,” Susan told Variety. “Except for Florence.”

Susan also said that her heart goes to Florence‘s four children as she feels like The Brady Bunch always “stole the limelight from them.”

“They had to share her so much,” she said. “My first husband and I spent time with her sons, and he told me, ‘Her kids are terrific.’ That’s how you know how good a mom she was. Two families and a career, and her kids still turned out terrific.”
