Sunday, November 29,1981 The Salina Journal Sunflower Page 11 Chris Knight sells land while awaiting roles Christopher Knight, 23, started acting at age 7. Now he's selling real estate. The young man who played Peter on "The Brady Bunch" for five years decided on this alternative because he has not been offered acting parts he likes. "I'm not interested right now in acting for money. I became financially successful at a young age and I didn't burn it all up — I did smart things with it. I'm working for work's sake. I want to do what I like, where I gain respect from other people and from myself." 'Marlowe' flop to be recorded A rock musical called "Marlowe" was panned by Broadway critics. Nevertheless, it's going to be recorded by Riva Records, the company that records Rod Stewart. For good reason, too. Billy Gaff, Stewart's manager and chairman of the board of Riva, is one of the major producers of the show. "I think there are hit singles in this show," Gaff said. "Remember there were bad notices for the 'The Wiz,' too." His career began in commercials. Then he was offered the role of Peter Brady, which he did until he was 15. At that point, he still had no idea that he would devote his life to acting like his father, a classical Shakespearean actor. "I didn't realize until it was over that this was what I wanted to be. The work was very intuitive and not at all intellectual." Did he ever feel stifled in the same role for five years? Chopin letter seeks subscriptions Harry Chapin died in a car accident last July but a letter is going out under his name. The four-page letter asks for subscriptions to a magazine dealing with the world hunger problem and founded by Chapin. An accompanying letter from his brother Jim explains that signing the letter was one of the singer's last acts before he died. His brother's letter adds a P.S., "It is urgent that Harry's work go on." AQUARIUS LEO January 21-February 19 — If you approach something with a defeatist attitude, you're sure to be defeated. It all depends on your attitude and outlook. With confidence you can gain a lot of ground. July 24-Auguat 23 — Romantically speaking, this week is one you should set aside to make up for forgetting loved ones when they really needed attention. Pamper them and plan a special weekend for them. PISCES 35 VIRGO February 20-March 20 - The opportunities that arise this week should be snapped up as they come or are forever lost. Don't ignore the advice of those you have grown to trust. ARIES ** March 21-AprU 20 — This is a week of rest and relaxation. Nothing spectacular should be happening, and you can take the time to look back on accomplishments and perhaps plan a quiet weekend. TAURUS _<f* April 21-May 21 - The first part of this week is wonderful for completing projects started early in the year. After Wednesday, you should take things slow and pursue quiet hobbies. GEMINI *& May 22-June 21 — The week starts out slowly and bad news might arrive to make matters worse. Toward the middle of the week, things settle down and you can take it easy. CANCER •* June 22-July23- The first two days of this week are poor, but after that, good happenings turn your head, and then things slow down to a lull that lasts through the weekend. Take it August 24-September 23 — Divide this week in half and the first part is excellent, but the second part is just the opposite. Plan accordingly and get things done early. LIBRA Bte September 24-October 23—The first couple of days of this week should lend to the celebrating atmosphere around you and after then things die down a little and allow you to approach new projects. SCORPIO Slg October 24-November 22 — Until Wednesday, you have the perfect opportunities to make decisions and appointments. After that, get back into the planning stages of things and make sure your facts are good. SAGITTARIUS IH November 23-December 21 — Your week starts and ends favorably, but in the middle, it's best that you just listen to others and follow their lead. Have an entertaining weekend and include friends from the past. CAPRICORN m December 22-January 20 — Take the time you need this week to regain your proper perspective and pursue the things most important to you, not to others. You should live and let live and expect the same for others. < "No, but if I had thought about it, I might have. I was just getting tired of working. I wanted to go and play football, to be with my friends. I wanted to do all the things that normal kids do, so I was happy when the show went off the air." He finished high school, went on to UCLA for a little less than a year, then resumed acting. 'I was studying oceanography, geology, calculus — all sciences. I always loved science and was never into the arts. But I don't regret leaving college because I found out what it was like to be a college student, to be in a fraternity and live in a dorm." For the next two years he worked on specials related to "The Brady Bunch" and the animated "Brady Kids." He also did other work on television features and talk shows and had a role in the short- lived NBC series "Joe's World." "I also did some dinner theater last summer in Kansas City. I might be doing some up in Detroit alter I get back home." "In Los Angeles I'm up at six and on the beach by seven. Or else I go to the park, or to the mountains. I go water skiing a lot and snow skiing." Someday he plans to find out how proficient he is at directing. He's also like to start his own production company. "I've worked in this business for 17 years, so actually, I'm more used to being unemployed and looking for my next job, so it doesn't frighten me. Besides, I'm pretty well known in L.A., so there shouldn't be any problem getting other work. I've lived with not working before and I'll do it again."
