Don Marshall in Land of the Giants

We learned today via Celeste Yarnall of the very sad news that actor Don Marshall passed away on Sunday evening at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.  Don had been due to attend a Land of the Giants reunion at Campbell Con over the weekend, but had to pull out due to a serious health issue, and this sudden news has been very shocking for fans around the world.  We will pay tribute in the coming hours and days on the IANN Giants page and Giants Log site.

Don Matheson

1st July 2014

Don Matheson at the Land of the Giants commentary recording in April 2011It is with immense sadness that we have learned that our longtime friend and star of Land of the Giants, Don Matheson has passed away. Our thoughts at this time are with Deanna Lund, his daughter Michele, and all of his family and friends. Don participated in a wonderful Land of the Giants reunion with us in July 1991 and his sparkling sense of humour shone through as he recalled their times together in the sixties with his fellow cast mates. Since then he has been a popular guest at events and a couple of years ago he participated in the amazing commentary the cast of Land of the Giants did for the British Land of the Giants DVD release. If you have any messages of sympathy that you would like us to pass to his family and to share with fellow fans, please email us at our contact email address.

Jamie Foxx appeared on The Ellen Show a couple of weeks ago and he declared how scared he was of spiders and how the giant spiders on Land of the Giants freaked him out when he was growing up.
