Mother of Caprice Crane.

She and fellow "Gilligan's Island" (1964) cast member Dawn Wells have both been asked to appear together in numerous television ad campaigns over the years.

Johnson also recalls that while Tina remained professional throughout the show's run without raising a fuss, she "divorced herself from the show as soon as it went off the air".
