Russ Grieve made guest appearances on 3 episodes of "Gilligan's Island," always playing a native from a nearby island. Some sources identify each of these appearances as a different character ("Native," "Head Hunter", and "Native Chief"), or as two different characters. At this point we see no particular reason to classify these unnamed native Polynesian islander characters played by Grieve as distinct, and we have treated all three appearances as a single character.
