Marcia Was Really Hit In The Face With A Football


Despite breaking her nose in a car accident only a week prior to filming, Marcia, played by Maureen McCormick, was actually hit in the face with a football in the episode, "The Subject Of Noses" - albeit accidentally. Her on-screen brother Greg, played by Barry Williams, describes the incident below: 

It was a real football. But it was thrown into screen very close to her, maybe a couple of feet. Actually, the prop man tried a couple of times and it didn’t connect. Then, (Peter Brady actor) Christopher Knight reminded me that he came in and he actually lobbed it into her face. That’s how it happened.
