'Gilligan's Island' star Tina Louise reveals sexiest co-star, qualities she's looking for in a partner

Louise portrayed the glitzy Ginger Grant in the iconic TV series che è andato in onda da 1964 fino a 1967 e in cui Bob Denver interpretava il personaggio del titolo. The actress apparently appeared to have no hesitation when asked in a recent inerview who she thinks her sexiest co-star from the series was.

Speaking to the New York Post in a new interview, Louise revealed: “It’s Jim [Backus].”

Jim was hilarious. Humor, hon,” she continued of the late actor, who played the millionaire Thurston Howell III. “He was so funny and he used to go to the psychiatrist every day and tell me the news of the day … But just in general, he had a great sense of humor. He was adorable.

The ’60s TV show also saw Bob Denver as Gilligan, Russell Johnson as the professor, and Alan Hale Jr. as the skipper.

I think the Professor read too many books,” lei ha aggiunto. “[Gilligan] was just very nervous and scared to death and talked so fast. He was so shy.

Louise confirmed she currently lives in New York City. Although she declared to share her age with the outlet because she doesn’t believe in letting a number dictate her life, she was pretty open about the qualities she’s looking for in a prospective partner should the right one come around.

I’m open. I’m open. I’m open to life,” Louise said of her interest in dating.

Lei ha aggiunto: “He’d be funny, have a good heart and money wouldn’t matter if we were stuck on an Island.

Louise even divulged one star in Hollywood she’d like to get to know more. Turns out she’d choose late-night host John Oliver.

I like his dimples. I like him. He’s terrific. Bright. Cute. Divertente,” she dished. “You have to enjoy each other’s company and have something to talk about. That’s important.

Louise last spoke to Fox News in December of 2020 following the passing of another one of her “Gilligan” co-protagonisti, Dawn Wells.

“Ricorderò sempre la sua gentilezza nei miei confronti,” Disse Louise. “Abbiamo condiviso la creazione di un punto di riferimento culturale che ha continuato a portare conforto e sorrisi alle persone durante questo periodo difficile. Spero che le persone la ricordino come me, sempre con un sorriso sul viso.”

Louise ha detto in a 2019 intervista con Settimanale più vicino che adorava come la sitcom “rappresentava questa grande fuga” sulla scia della crisi missilistica cubana, il tragico assassinio del presidente John F. Kennedy e nel bel mezzo di un'escalation della guerra del Vietnam.

“Quando siamo andati in onda per la prima volta, il nostro paese era in subbuglio,” Louise rifletté, aggiungendo, “Penso che le persone avessero davvero bisogno di una via di fuga. Poi abbiamo perso il nostro amato Martin Luther King e in un momento di incertezza, 'L'isola di Gilligan ha rappresentato questa grande fuga.”

“Questo dolce, lo spettacolo sciocco ha fornito ai suoi fan calma e gioia in un momento spaventoso e ha continuato a farlo,” Louise ha continuato.

“Isola di Gilligan” continua ad essere proiettato in tutto il mondo in più di 30 le lingue.
