BourbonBlog.com‘s Tom Fischer interviews actress Dawn Wells, aka “Mary Ann” from Gilligan’s Island in the video above.
We invited Dawn to come with us to Danville, Kentucky and appear at the Kentucky State BBQ Festival 2013.
BBQ and Mary Ann are truly two American classics.
As Gilligan’s Island will celebrate a 50th Anniversary, Dawn talks about her forthcoming book release Mary Ann’s Good Girl Guide to Life.
Gilligan’s Island is the longest running syndicated TV show in the history of television, in over 30 languages across the globe.
Dawn signed autographs and spent time with the pitmasters, guests, and volunteers who traveled from across the country for this unique celebration of food and fun in Danville.
Danville didn’t want Dawn Wells to leave, and the feeling was mutual!
