On the coldest day, when all the Castaways had to go into the lagoon in one of those scenes, guess who was the first to jump into that uninviting, chilly water?
Natalie Schafer, that’s who. With her ever-present parasol over her head, Natalie would lead the charge of the other six Castaways into the lagoon. There wasn’t anything in the script Natalie refused to do, whether she was called upon to take a fall, sink into quicksand, or swing from a tree.
