Dawn Wells, who played Mary Ann on ‘Gilligan’s Island,’ dies from COVID-19


THE ANGELS – #Dawn #Wells, who played the wholesome #Mary #Ann among a misfit band of shipwrecked castaways on the 1960s sitcom “Gilligan’s #Island,” died #Wednesday of causes related to COVID-19, her publicist said. #She was 82.

#Wells died peacefully at a living facility in #Los #Angeles, publicist #Harlan #Boll said.

“There is so much more to #Dawn #Wells” than the “Gilligan’s #Island” character that brought her fame, #Boll said in a statement.

#Besides TV, film and stage acting credits, her other real-life roles included teacher and motivational speaker, #Boll said.

#Born in #Reno, #Nevada, #Wells represented her state in the 1959 #Miss #America pageant and quickly pivoted to an acting career. #Her early TV roles came on shows including “77 #Sunset #Strip,” “Maverick” and “Bonanza.”

Then came “Gilligan’s #Island,” a goofy, good-natured show that became an unlikely but indelible part of popular culture.
