‘Gilligan’s Island’ star, Dawn Wells, who played Mary Ann on the show has told Fox News that she’s going through financial issues, and is surprised there’s a GoFundMe page to help her through her tough times.
A rep has told Fox News that Wells, 79, “has been keeping her wits about herself and like so many others is doing her best to overcome difficult times.”
She also hasn’t decided on whether or not she’s going to use the money that’s been raised.
TMZ reported that a friend posting that Wells needed $200,000 and was allegedly “desperate” for the funds. TMZ also says that she wants to be in a smaller health care facility, but can’t because of her huge debt. The GoFundMe page has exceeded $115,000.
Dawn played Mary Ann Summers, and is one of two remaining living cast members who were castaways on that famous uncharted desert isle. The other is Tina Louise, who played Ginger Grant.
