Grant Goodeve’s Surprising Journey
In the beloved series Eight Is Enough, Grant Goodeve took on the role of David Bradford, but it was originally intended for a young Mark Hamill. However, fate had other plans, and Hamill’s iconic journey as Luke Skywalker in Star Wars led him to leave the show. That’s when Goodeve stepped in, making his appearance in season five. Here’s a fun tidbit about Goodeve – he actually lent his voice to sing Eight Is Enough’s theme song! Before landing this role, he had only taken on a couple of smaller acting gigs. His unexpected journey to becoming David Bradford and the voice behind the catchy theme song remain a delightful part of television history.
