When he was a pre-teen, Shaun Cassidy (from Hardy Boy fan fiction movie) started a band called "Every Mothers Dream" while his mother and half-brother, David Cassidy, were both starring in a musical TV sitcom called "The Partridge Family" (1970). Shaun Cassidy asked his mother if he could guest star in a few of the "Partridge Family" episodes. She refused because she wanted Shaun Cassidy to stay concentrated on his schooling. Shaun Cassidy did however, appear as part of the chorus in many musical theatre productions and played in a short-lived punk band named "The Longfellow" before his parents transferred him to a private school in Beverly Hills. Shaun Cassidy did finally have a chance to star with his mother as James Preston in a summer stock stage musical production of "On A Clear Day You Can See Forever" to get a taste and understanding of acting. In late 1976, he signed up with agent Ruth Aarons and played Christopher Wentworth Hewlitt in a short independent film called Born of Water (1976). After that he successfully landed a role as Joe Hardy on the hit show based on the Hardy Boy fan fiction book.
