Her Ex-Husband Was Fired From The “Fantasy Island”

Gene Levitt created the American fantasy drama television series “Fantasy Island.”  The main lead, Mr. Roarke, was played by Richardo Montalban, and his assistant, Tattoo, was played by Herve. The series ran for seven seasons from 1977 to 1984. Basically, the story of the series was about granting the fantasies of the guests who arrived on the island, and they had to pay a price for that.

People remembered Herve for his role as Tattoo and, in particular, his dialogue of “The Plane! The Plane!” in every episode whenever he sees a plane arrive with a guest on the island. He was also earning well from the series.

According to The People, he earned $4,000 per episode in 1980, which later rose to $25,000 per episode. But Herve was not satisfied with the payment, and in the seventh season, he asked the makers to raise his money the same as Montalban. Instead, ABC fired him from the series and replaced his character with Christopher Hewett, as in Lawrence. Herve’s co-star Montaban even said that Herve had turned into a rapacious artist who was attempting to “take the producers for everything he can.”

You know you made me feel like a giant, and that’s how I want you to remember me.” After some time, “I’m doing what I have to do. I want everything to go to Kathy. I want everyone to know that I love them.”

Herve’s Girlfriend Was the First to Find Him
