Adam Rich, the Youngest Son of the Eight is Enough Family, Died at the Age of 54
Adam Rich died on Saturday. He was best known for his role in the ABC drama-comedy Eight Is Enough. At the time, he was 54 years old. Family members told TMZ about the death, but they didn’t say why.
Even though there are no signs of foul play, the actor was found dead at his home. Rich played the youngest son, Nicholas Bradford, in 112 episodes of Eight is Enough. From 1977 to 1981, the show ran for five seasons.
Dick Van Patten, Betty Buckley, Grant Goodeve, Lani O’Grady, and Laurie Walters were among the other stars. He started his career with a drama teacher at Chatsworth High School who also taught Kevin Spacey and Val Kilmer.
Rich left the business in the early 1990s, but he had cameos on The Six Million Dollar Man, The Love Boat, Fantasy Island, CHiPs, Silver Spoons, St. Elsewhere, Baywatch, and Small Wonder, as well as a bigger part on Code Red.
As a child, he also did commercials for Betty Crocker and Nabisco. He also did voice work for Dungeons & Dragons with Willie Aames, who he worked with on the show Eight Is Enough.
In 1991, the actor was caught trying to steal drugs after he broke the window of a pharmacy. At the time, Van Patten, who played his TV father, saved him.
His last roles were a cameo in Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star by David Spade and a guest spot as Crocodile Dundee on Reel Comedy. Both were released in 2003.
