Dawn Wells, who starred as “good girl” Mary Ann in popular 1960s sitcom “Gilligan’s Island,” died Wednesday of causes related to COVID-19 in Los Angeles. She was 82.


I'm showing my age here, Gilligan's Island was still shown regularly in the 70's / 80's.

Terrible news and 65 is no age at all.  :(

She played a massive part in my growing childhood understanding that ladies might be different to men, in films such as Beastmaster and Sheena Queen Of The Jungle.

Marion Ramsey, perhaps best known as Laverne Hooks in the Police Academy movies.


I remember when I was researching to write about the movies. She was the reason that Bubba Smith didn't appear in the last one (IIRC). She'd fallen on hard times so he asked the producers if they could bring her back, as the fans had always liked her. When they said, Smith dropped out of the production.
