Russell Johnson, the actor who famously portrayed "The Professor" on TV's iconic Gilligan's Island passed away Thursday from kidney failure at the age of 89. This leaves only Tina Louise (Ginger) and Dawn Wells (Mary Ann) as the only surviving castaways from the famous CBS series.
Dreama Denver, the wife of late "Gilligan's Island" star Bob Denver said of Johnson: "He was truly a man among men, the finest of human beings, a gentleman in every sense of the word, and one who welcomed me into the Gilligan's Island family with open arms. I will remember Russ as one of Bob’s closest friends and certainly one of mine. My greatest hope is that Russ and Bob are together again, hitting their marks on that heavenly sound stage."
2014 marks the 50th anniversary of this beloved TV classic which first ran from 1964-1967, and has appeared in syndication ever since, including a TV Land marathon this coming Monday. Talk with Dreama Denver about:
