Land of the Giants



Our Valerie in Giantland

Deanna Lund - Our Valerie in Giantland

It was heartbreaking to hear that our dear and beautiful friend Deanna Lund passed away on Friday 22nd June 2018. We helped her family pay tribute to Deanna by producing a video compilation of many of her roles for them to show at her memorial. We have promised that we will help to preserve her legacy through her website and beyond and friends and fans around the world are welcome to contribute through the Irwin Allen News Network (IANN) site.

The Land of the Giants cast have all been like family for everyone who has travelled in time with them over the past 50 years. In the 50th Anniversary year of Land of the Giants, this was an even greater loss as we all tried to commemorate the show which brought us this inspiring actress, Deanna Lund.

Deanna's long term fan organisation Friends of Deanna Lund, run by Dr. Fred Eichelman, prepared a special obituary in Deanna's memory for her website.
