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.
