Michael Fairman On-Air/On Soaps reports that Gilligan Island’s Dawn Wells will join the show next month. The actress played the beloved Mary Ann on the long-running comedy series and is slated to play Alice, a friend of the Forrester family on The Bold and the Beautiful.
There’s the possibility that if Wells is on The Bold and the Beautiful for an extended length of time, she might be a new love interest for Eric. After all, he’s been without a woman for quite some time now.
B&B recently cast Alley Mills’ (who plays Pam) real-life husband, Orson Bean, on the hit CBS soap. Bean played Howard for two episodes in January and was an airplane passenger sitting next to Liam. He was forced to listen to Liam carry on about how badly he wanted to get back to Steffy after accidentally taking a plane from L.A. to Australia with Ivy. Prior to his air date, it was speculated that maybe his character would have been linked to Pam.
The Bold and the Beautiful airs weekdays on CBS.
