Here’s a MediaBlvd Magazine interview with Lost Executive Producers: Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse
They talk about Season 3, and how our view of what we’ve learned about The Others so far might change by the end of the season.
This quote from Carlton Cuse really stuck out:
If we forced the storytelling, you would feel worse. Henry Gale was going to be in two episodes and the actor was so awesome that we ended up having him be in eight. But, the plan to discover a prisoner in the hatch and then have him turn out to be a significant member of The Others was always in play.
The way I read that, it sounded like “the prisoner in the hatch” (Desmond) is supposed to be a member of The Others… I have to assume this was a mistake, since they were talking about Henry Gale right before that.
MediaBlvd Magazine has a nice interview with Jin and Hurley. They give their reactions to working together, getting new scene partners and a few thoughts on Star Trek.
Turns out that the surprising deaths of characters on LOST is something that weighs on the mind of the cast. There’s a brief article at WashingtonPost.com where Josh Holloway talks about deaths on the show.
Can’t say that I really blame them. The show has a lot of plot twists, and one minute a character is there, and BOOM, the next minute they’re gone.
It’s LOST Premiere Night!
As expected, there are a LOT of articles about Lost in various papers today. I’ve gotten six of those together here so you can get your LOST fix before the show tonight:
Houston Chronicle – contains spoilers
Mercury News – contains spoilers
USAToday – Highlights The Others
London Free Press – article about a new LOST book which was release yesterday
Toronto Star – quick article about Lindelof and Abrams
Arizona Republic – Quick synopsis before tonight’s show
Brad Walters of the Washington Post has interview with Michael Emerson, (Henry Gale) of Lost in this Sunday’s Washington Post. You can read it online now. (They didn’t quite get the formating right for the questions/answers, so take that into account when you read it).
USA Today is running an article that describes the relationship between LOST writers Carlton Cuse and David Lindelof. It describes how they first started working together, how Cuse is the “science” guy and Lindelof the “pop culture” guy, and the mini “Lost museum” Lindelof has in his office.
I was surprised to find out that Lindelof was so overwhelmed by the Lost project at first that he nearly quit three times! It’s a good thing he didn’t!
