Adam Rich has died. As “America’s little brother” on the TV show “Eight is Enough,” he was a child actor with a pageboy haircut and a mop-top. He was 54. Lt. Aimee Earl of the Los Angeles County Medical-Examiner Coroner’s office said Rich died Saturday at his home in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles.
The cause of death was being looked into, but there was no reason to think it was suspicious. Rich’s acting career was short-lived after he played Nicholas Bradford, the youngest of eight children, on the ABC dramedy from 1977 to 1981. He was only eight years old at the time.
