A long, lost castaway is about to make an appearance on a CBS soap. Hint: She was a passenger aboard the S.S. Minnow. “Gilligan’s Island’s” Dawn Wells, remembered as Mary Ann to fans of the classic sitcom, is set to guest star on “The Bold and the Beautiful.”

According to TVInsider, Wells will play Alice, a Forrester Creations buyer and old friend of Eric Forrester (John McCook) and his late wife, Stephanie (Susan Flannery). Her episode airs Friday, February 19, and it will be action-packed. It’s the same day Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) proclaims that he’s ready to reclaim his place at the Forrester mansion.

Look for Ridge to host a cocktail party at his home and invite Alice and some of the company’s other long-time vendors. Before they arrive, he replaces the portrait of Maya (Karla Mosley) that’s been hanging on the wall with one of his dear, departed mother, Stephanie. Imagine how that move is going to sit with Rick (Jacob Young), Maya’s husband and Ridge’s brother and rival? It will, no doubt, be an explosive episode to remember.
