Harold Perrineau, who plays Michael on LOST, took a brief hiatus from LOST, but is glad to be back:
Nausea aside, the actor is relieved to once again be part of the Lost crew. His character, Michael, hadn’t been seen or heard from since motoring off the island in the Others’ boat with son Walt at the end of season two, leaving fans to wonder what the holy smoke monster had happened to them.
“It was time to come back,” Perrineau says. “Even if Michael was going to die, I [wanted] him to finish, as opposed to just disappearing.”
Question is, how long will Michael stay alive?
