Castaway Mary Ann from Gilligans Island has apparently been cast-off, and to a role on CBS Daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful!  TV Insider reports on Monday that Dawn Wells from the comedy classic series will be seen on an upcoming episode of the sudser!

Wells will play an old friend of Eric (John McCook) and Stephanie‘s, who is also a Forrester Creations buyer named Alice. What brings Alice into the mix is Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) deciding to reclaim his place at the Forrester Mansion. Dawn’s episode will air on Friday, February 19th.

A rep for B&B previews what goes down during Well’s arrival on to the scene:  “Ridge holds a cocktail party at the house and invites Alice and the company’s other long-time vendors. But first, he takes down the portrait of Maya (Karla Mosley) that’s been hanging on the wall and replaces it with the portrait of Stephanie.”

Be on the lookout for the “portrait-takedown” to not go over well with Rick (Jacob Young), who is always at odds with Ridge – and this will just fuel that fire.

So, what do you think about Dawn Wells to B&B for this guest stint?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

I a tiring of the constant power struggles for Forrester Creations. When does anyone have time to make a difference?!? Why should we care? Like the split-second romances and marriages, this endless boardroom rondelay is boring. Eric should make some decisions. Why isn’t he in power, a stronger character?

This is so cool—seeing this bit of news makes me wish Brad Bell could find a way to make Dawn Wells and her character a permanent fixture on the soap. I would go along for the ride with her!!!

But it was supposed to be a two hour tour, a two hour tour.
Oh it makes me wonder.
(anyone else ever hear the tune of Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” sung to the lyrics of the Gilligan’s Island theme song?
You have not LIVED until you do and I defy anyone right now to attempt to sing the aforementioned.

James, way back when I was an undergrad there was a radio program called the Dr Demento show. That is when I first heard it.
The Youtube is pretty cool too.
I also love Dawn Wells. She was and is a beauty.
Loved her as Maryanne with Ginger and Mrs Howell (Lovie) as the Honeybees–the all girl group.
Mrs. Howell was the original new wave rocker chick.

PS. Yes, I am a huge Gilligan’s Island fan.

I will be glad to see Maya dewalled!

Look forward to seeing Dawn AND Ridge on the show. Where is Ridge? Why is Rick in his office? Why is Rick making all these decisions? And give Eric something to do. How about a romance with Donna?

Wow! I love DW and her character from Gilligan’s Island. It’d be great if her character could be recurring. I read the article. The storyline looks interesting. Sparks should fly when that portrait comes down! Gotta love it!
