As for Dawn Wells’ opinion about her role in the sitcom Gilligan’s Island
“Every character on Gilligan Island has been given a massive comedic role to fill – captain, companion, wealthy man, wealthy wife, professor, movie star – except me,” writes Don Wells in her book. “She was given a name and a location – Kansas Farm Girl. I had to fill in the blanks. So, from the start, the Mary Ann character was different. It wasn’t a Hollywood invention. It was shaped by me, by me.”
She went on to say that Mary Ann’s “values and principles” reflect her values and principles and she is immortal: “I know this because the essence of Mary Ann is really me. I mean, I built it from scratch… If you play a character long enough on stage or screen, I think you are yourself. Real show through. “
Dawn Wells added during a 2008 interview with the TV Academy Foundation. She said, “There was no Mary Ann on the air because I don’t know how long. There was no good girl over 14, and Mary Ann was so much.”
“The Mary Ann-Ginger case is always there. You had to be a real man to understand Ginger, and Mary Ann would go to the prom and she was your best friend. Lots of men would come to me saying,” She married Mary Ann. She had values. “

We love her because we need her emotional support and her belief that everything will turn out well … We love Mary Ann because of Dawn Wells.”
