It seems we lost another Gilligan's Island star today. It's Dawn Wells who played Mary Ann, she left at the age of 82. Her publicist says that her death could be related to Covid-19. She died in her nursing home on December 30, 2020.
Mary Ann was known for cooking for all the castaways on the Island and Gilligan seemed to enjoys it a lot. They say Mary Ann represented envy out of the 7 deadly sins but after watching most of the show I found this to be almost completely untrue much like Thurston Howell the 3rd who wasn't really that greedy.
Dawn Wells even after aging was still recognizable, despite the changes in her appearance due to her age she still resembled the girl she once was, or more like the girl she acted as. I was actually impressed by that. One thing's for sure. She'll always be remembered as Mary Ann by everyone especially her adoring fans.
Now let's see...Gilligan, the Skipper, the Professor, the Millionaire and his wife, Mary Ann....only the movie star is left now, after her they'll be all gone.
