1[on her Gilligan's Island (1964) co-star Bob Denver] Bob's character on "Gilligan's Island" was lovable, wacky and charming. You laughed with him and at him as he did silly things. He was curious like a child, playful and boyish. Children loved him, and families enjoyed watching him together. Bob's mind was very quick--as an actor, he talked very fast. But as a person, he was shy and introspective. He was my favorite person to work with. It was a joy for me to flirt with him, to try to charm him to do whatever I wanted--to help me get my way on the island or certainly to help me get off the island, which, of course, I never did. It's amazing, the way the show has lasted and the pleasure we've brought to so many people--it has taken a while to really grasp how much pleasure. Bob's comedy was clever and fun, and will live forever.
2[on her Gilligan's Island (1964) co-star Dawn Wells] Dawn and I have never been close, we just never clicked. She was very much about pleasing everyone and I have never been that way.
3[her advice to young actresses] The best movie you'll ever be in is your own life, because that's what really matters in the end.
4[to director George Abbott during first dress rehearsal of "Fade Out, Fade In"] Mr. Abbott, do you mean I have to walk and talk at the same time?
1Despite liking her work, she was the only cast member of Gilligan's Island (1964) to be difficulty getting along with the crew.
2She was not the first choice for Ginger Grant on Gilligan's Island (1964), at the time when Kit Smythe had to be let go from the casting, CBS executives wanted the more, softer side of the character.
3On the Fox animated sitcom Bob's Burgers (2011), the family's two daughters are named, oldest to youngest, Tina and Louise.
4A song on the album "If You Don't Already Have a Look" by the American garage rock group The Dirtbombs is named "Tina Louise" (#26 on Disc one).
5She was included among the many women's names listed in the 1979 song "52 Girls" by the American New Wave group The B-52's.
6Her parents, Sylvia (Horn) and Joseph Blacker, were both from Jewish families from Eastern Europe.
7She is a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and a lifetime member of the Actors Studio. She is also a volunteer reading teacher in the New York City school system.
8She and fellow Gilligan's Island (1964) cast member Dawn Wells have both been asked to appear together in numerous television ad campaigns over the years. However, the two actresses have never liked each other and have not spoken in years. They have turned down many of these offers. The most notable one was a commercial for Old Navy clothing stores, which would feature them as Mary Ann Summers and Ginger Grant, still stuck on the island.
9Grew to resent her role on Gilligan's Island (1964) and refused to appear on any of the reunion movies following the series' cancellation (her character was played by Judith Baldwin). However, according to Sherwood Schwartz, she did offer to appear in the reunion movie Rescue from Gilligan's Island (1978); however, the salary she demanded was considered too high.
10Although she is most associated with playing Ginger Grant on Gilligan's Island (1964), she detests the role and has not appeared in any of the series' various reunion specials. According to Russell Johnson, Tina was told she would be the main star of the series when she was initially approached about doing it, and when she arrived in Los Angeles after accepting the offer, she found out otherwise. Johnson also recalls that while Tina remained professional throughout the series' run without raising a fuss, she "divorced herself from the show as soon as it went off the air".
11Created a health care company, "TLC", and marketed a parasol for women to keep the sun off their skin.
12Her Broadway debut was in "Li'l Abner", where she played Apassionata Von Climax. She shared her dressing room with another actress making her Broadway debut in the same play--Julie Newmar.
13She attended Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, and trained at the Neighborhood Playhouse and the Actors Studio.
14Mother of Caprice Crane.
