Deanna Lund


Born - 30 May 1937, Oak Park, Illinois., USA
Died - 22 June 2018

Copper-haired, snub-nosed actress of 'cute', all-American prettiness. A former TV weather girl, she arrived in Hollywood as a single mother with two young children, and was soon playing sexily decorative roles in frothy romps: Hootenanny-a-Go-Go (1964), Dr G and the Bikini Machine (1965), Sting of Death (1965), Johnny Tiger (1966), Paradise, Hawaiian Style (1966), Spinout (1966), The Swinger (1967), Tony Rome (1967) and Panic in the City (1968). She had to turn down a part in Rosemary's Baby (1968), because of her commitment to a leading role in the iconic TV series Land of the Giants. She married (second) her co-star in the series, Don Matheson, although they were divorced after 10 years. Later, she was seen in I Love a Mystery (1973), Hustle (1975), Hardly Working (1980), Stick (1985), Hammerhead (1987), Transylvania Twist (1989), The Girl I Want (1990), Roots of Evil (1992), Mr Wrong (1996) and Extreme Honor (2001). Much later, she appeared in Boned (2015) and Foxxx David (2017), her last. She died from pancreatic cancer.
