Dawn will give a Q&A panel, and pose for studio portraits and sign autographs on Friday in Sydney, and throughout Saturday and Sunday in both cities.
Further information on Dawn’s panel and photo sessions will be listed in our Event Programme, released closer to the convention.
There is so much more to Dawn Wells than Mary Ann of Gilligan’s Island (the longest running sitcom still showing worldwide in over 30 languages!)
She is an actress, producer, author, spokesperson, journalist, motivational speaker, teacher, and chairwoman of the Terry Lee Wells Foundation – focusing on women and children in Northern Nevada.
She has starred in over 150 TV shows, and 7 motion pictures, including Winterhawk (which she also narrated), The Town that Dreaded Sundown (with Andrew Prine), Super Sucker (with Jeff Daniels), The New Interns, It’s Our Time, and Silent But Deadly.
She has starred in 60+ theatrical productions from Noel Coward to Neil Simon, as well as the National Tours of Chapter Two and They’re Playing Our Song. Favourite productions include Fatal Attraction with Ken Howard, The Odd Couple with Marcia Wallace, The Allergist’s Wife, Steel Magnolias (Ouiser), and The Vagina Monologues.
Dawn has starred as Gingy in Love. Loss and What I Wore (by Nora and Delia Ephron) in New York, Chicago, Delaware, Scottsdale, and San Jose.
She was the “castaway correspondent” for Channel 9 (Sydney, Australia) interviewing such actors and directors as Robin Williams, Eddie Murphy, Julia Roberts, Rene Russo, Mel Gibson, Ron Howard, and Richard Donner, and presented Sandra Bullock with a coconut cream pie, as the two women both knew what it is like to be stranded, for the premiere of Gravity.
As a producer, she brought two Movies of the Week to CBS; Surviving Gilligan’s Island, and Return to the Bat Cave, with Adam West. She ran her Film Actors Boot Camp for 7 years in Idaho.
In September of 2014, Gilligan’s Island celebrated 50 years; and Dawn is writing her memoirs and developing a documentary. She is also developing a couple of television projects.
She is delighted to have brought to life Eleanor of Aquitaine to life in Kentucky.
