Mark Goddard has undoubtedly left his mark on culture, particularly through his work in “Lost in Space.” The popular television show ran from 1965 to 1968, spanning 84 episodes and three seasons. It would inspire several spinoff productions, with the latest being a Netflix adaptation.
Since Goddard’s death, his fans and friends have taken to social media to give their condolences to his surviving family members and share how he impacted their lives. Actor Bill Mumy, who portrayed young Will Robinson in “Lost in Space,” was among those to take to social media to give a tribute to Goddard.
In his Facebook post, Mumy called his former costar “a truly beloved friend and brother” before admitting he knew his friend wasn’t long for this world. “I knew this was coming for the past few months,” Mumy wrote. “Shortly after a great phone chat he and I had on his 87th birthday in late July, I became aware that I would most likely never see or speak with him again.” Mumy then added, “The last words we exchanged were ‘I love you.’”
Along with his work on “General Hospital” and “Lost in Space,” Goddard has also made appearances in “The Beverly Hillbillies,” “Gunsmoke,” “Perry Mason,” and “Adam-12,” to name a few. He also had a cameo appearance in the 1998 “Lost in Space” reboot film.
