Dawn Wells of Gilligan's Island fame is the afternoon speaker at the Smart Women Smart Conference this week.
Of course, most of us remember watching her on TV as Mary Ann, the cutie in the cut-off jeans lost on an island with an odd bunch of characters. But, on Thursday we'll get to know her better.
She's one of us you know, an Idahoan.
From the far eastern end of the state, she has established the Dawn Wells’ Film Actors Boot Camp in Driggs, Idaho.
She offers one-week sessions for young actors learning the art of acting on camera as well as the business of the film industry.
Dawn is also the founder and producer of the annual Spud Drive-In Family Film Festival at the historic Spud Drive-In Theatre in Driggs.
Her bio says she's traveled the world, experiencing first-hand the diversity of women and children. That will likely be part of what she talks about Thursday in her keynote speech.
I hope you can catch it.
