“Land of the Giants” actress Deanna Lund passed away at the age of 81. She lost the battle to diagnosed pancreatic cancer she had been fighting since September 2017.
Deanna Lund was one of the stars from “Land of the Giants.” The two-season TV series featured a spacecraft crew losing their way to Earth and crashing into the unknown planet. Each episode, costing around $250,000, was telling us the story of the giant inhabitants of the planet and the earthlings’ desperate struggle for the life.
The key feature of the series was that almost all stunts were performed by the cast themselves. Thus, Deanna was hanging on a rope over the flames, dropped into specimen jars, and even kidnapped by the ape.
She stayed alive during the series; however, she lost the recent battle she had been struggling with since September 2017.
Deanna Lund died on Friday, June 22, at her home in Century City. The ABC series actress lost the long battle against pancreatic cancer she was diagnosed with almost a year ago.
Her daughter, actress and novelist Michele Matheson, reported about the sad news the following Monday. The family keeps mourning the unfortunate loss but stays strong to live through Deanna’s death.
