Brian A. Forster (born April 14, 1960) was the second actor to play the role of Chris Partridge in the television series The Partridge Family.

Biography[edit]

Forster joined the The Partridge Family in 1971, replacing Jeremy Gelbwaks,[1] and continued until the show ended in 1974.[2] Chris Partridge was the drummer of the fictional family band. As of 2002/2003, Forster was a race car driver in Northern California, and continued to act in community theater there.[3]

On one occasion, a fan asked Forster what he thought of the movie Days of Thunder. He replied that it was "...very fake and phony." Forster had taken a girlfriend (who also happened to be one of his racing students) to see the film; she asked him to tap her shoulder every time there was a "flub" on-screen. "She got very little sleep while that picture was running," joked Forster.[citation needed]

Forster is the stepson of actor Whit Bissell, step-grandson of actor Alan Napier, who portrayed Alfred the Butler in the Batman television series (1966–1968), and the great-great-great-grandson of author Charles Dickens.[4]
