This co-star on "Little House on the Prairie" was such a "introvert" that Karen Grassle never got to know him.

Karen Grassle, who used to be on the hit TV show Little House on the Prairie, talked about what really went on behind the scenes when she was there. Even though Grassle was in the show for almost a decade, she says she only got to know one of her co-stars. Here's what she said about the person she worked with who was "introverted." 

On the set of "Little House on the Prairie," Karen Grassle made close friends. 

Many of the people in Grassle's cast became close friends with her. Katherine MacGregor, who played Mrs. Oleson, became a friend for life with one of her co-stars. Grassle said that MacGregor liked being called "Scotty," and that she was a "big-boned, sexy brunette." She says she got along with MacGregor right away. In her book Bright Lights, Prairie Dust, Grassle writes, "We got along right away because we both liked to practice and we both liked to laugh." 

One thing that Grassle liked about MacGregor was how passionately she played her role. She says that MacGregor wasn't afraid to give the role, which required her to play a bad person, everything she had. Grassle says that this is hard for some actors because they want the audience to like them. 

"Scotty attacked her character with guts, not caring if people didn't like him," Grassle said. "I liked that about her so much." 

This "Little House on the Prairie" cast member was not someone Karen Grassle got to know. 

Even though Grassle and MacGregor became friends, she didn't get to know one co-star that well. Richard Bull, who played Mrs. Oleson's husband, Nels Oleson, was the only cast member Grassle didn't get to know. 

In her book, Grassle says, "I respected him, but he was so shy that we never got to know each other well." She talks about the time she wrote an article about women's roles and Bull said something that showed he didn't know much about her or how much she cared about women's rights. Grassle says that when he heard about the article, he said, "Who knew she was so deep?" 

Bull was an actor, and Grassle knew that. He also knew that Bull took his job seriously. She says that he is "the perfect actor" because he is always excellent and never has any problems. 

Grassle also liked how humble Bull was. She says that he was just like his character on Little House on the Prairie. "Like Mr. Oleson, he was modest and humble, and he never made a big deal out of himself," says Grassle. She also says that he stayed out of the politics of the set and kept a "low profile."

The movies and TV shows of Richard Bull 

"Death Is My Neighbor," an episode of the TV show Danger from 1953, was one of Bull's first roles. Bull was in two episodes of Medic in 1956. In the same year, Full of Life was his first movie. 

Bull played the Seaview Doctor on the TV show Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea from 1964 to 1968. Bull has also appeared on Highway to Heaven, Mannix, Mission: Impossible, and The Man from U.N.C.L.E., among other shows. In 2011, he had his last acting job on the TV show Boss. Bull died in 2014.
