January 16, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Dawn Wells, who played Mary Ann in “Gilligan’s Island,” posted a photo of her and Russell Johnson–“The Professor”–and Bob Denver, who was Gilligan, on her Facebook page.

“My 2 favorite people are now gone. The Professor past away this morning. My heart is broken,” she wrote on Facebook along with the post, which showed the three.

Johnson died Thursday at 89, reports said.

“Russell was a true gentleman, a good father, a great friend, and ‘the rest.’ I love him and shall miss him. My heart goes out to Connie and his daughter Kim. I love you,” Wells wrote in another post.

Denver died in 2005 at age 70.

Tina Louise, who played Ginger, said she was “saddened” over the news.

“I was very saddened to hear of the passing of Russell Johnson. My prayers and condolences go out to his wife Constance and his family. He will always be in our hearts and remembered as part of American pop culture history as ‘Gilligan’s Island’ lives on through ME TV and TV Land. He will be missed,” Louise told RumorFix.
