, he appeared in a handful of series — and numerous Brady
spin-offs, TV-movies and variety shows — before more or less abandoning showbiz in the 1980s in favor of a career in the computer industry. His decision to appear on the "celebreality" series The Surreal Life

, and married in 2006. Off screen, Knight has attention deficit disorder and has served as a spokesperson for the National Consumer League's AD/HD awareness campaign.Christopher Knight Fast Facts:
