Will Marshall is a fictional adventurer and one of the main characters on the 1974-1976 children's series Land of the Lost. Played by actor Wesley Eure, the character appeared in all forty-three episodes of the show.

Overview Edit

Will Marshall was the oldest child of park ranger Rick Marshall. He was the older brother of Holly Marshall and the nephew of Jack Marshall. During a routine expedition on a river raft, Will, Rick and Holly found themselves driven by a strong current that took them over an unexpected waterfall. The descent transcended the group through time and space and they awakened in a veritable "Lost Land", populated by hungry dinosaurs, reptilian hunters known as Sleestaks, and strange neanderthals called Pakuni. The Marshall family took shelter in a cave upon a high bluff and had to use their wits and ingenuity in order to survive in this strange new world.

Notes & Trivia Edit

  • Actor Wesley Eure was credited as "WESLEY" in every episode of the series. This was Eure's idea as he thought that it might improve his marketability.
  • In the 2009 feature film remake of Land of the Lost, the character of Will Marshall is renamed Will Stanton. He is played by actor Danny McBride, and is noticeably older than the original incarnation of the character and has a radically different personality.
