darlton told about 2 spectacular kiss in finale season, we know the one but what is the second ?
Damon Lindelof: Everything's gonna come together in this final two hours. We're gonna see how the Oceanic Six get off the Island. We're gonna see why they start lying. We're gonna see who doesn't get off the Island and see why some of them choose to stay. Carlton Cuse: And we're gonna see a big kiss—a really big juicy kiss—between two characters. D.L.: A spectacular kiss. C.C.: And it's gonna be very good for people who are very involved with the Jack-Kate-Sawyer romantic triangle. You're going to see a lot more about that in this finale. D.L.: So you're saying that kiss is gonna happen between two of those characters. Jack and Sawyer perhaps? C.C.: I'm gonna say not Jack and Sawyer. I'm gonna say you can probably pick two other sides of the triangle. D.L.: I'm gonna go one better than "there's one spectacular kiss": There are two spectacular kisses in the show...between four different people—not kissing each other. They happen at different times in the show. C.C.: And they aren't the same characters kissing each other twice, so that will be good. D.L.: Separate kisses.
HOLLYWOOD — Four seasons of helping his friends survive Lost's mysterious island has softened old James "Sawyer" Ford, a former con artist who was recently seen cradling Claire's baby boy.
As the show closes in on Thursday's two-hour season finale (ABC, 9 p.m. ET/PT), emotions run high as Sawyer (Josh Holloway) and company endure a series of game-changing events.
"It's kind of violent," says Holloway, 38. "There's definitely a body count going on. And there's a moment where a big decision has to go down."
Flash-forwards have indicated that Jack, Kate, Hurley, Sayid, Sun and baby Aaron (the so-called Oceanic Six) escape the island. The fates of all the others are unknown. Why would Sawyer choose such uncertainty?
"He realizes some sacrifices need to be made," the actor teases on a hike through the dusty trails of L.A.'s Runyon Canyon while dragging on a cigarette. "And I think he's afraid to go back to society. He has gone through an evolution on that island. He has had to face all these demons and he has grown — enough to know he's not OK with himself anymore. Instead of destroying lives, he has saved some lives. He cares about people … and has fallen in love."
Those deep feelings for Kate (Evangeline Lilly) come into play as he is presented with the possibility of losing her forever. "That is a very important part of the finale that I can't talk about," he says.
Like his character, Holloway has experienced his own evolution. Being away from L.A. these past four years has allowed him the opportunity to clear his head of insecurities that, he concedes, "were really eating at my soul." Those insecurities were replaced with feelings of entitlement once he hit it big. But now he has settled into a comfortable mid-way point of peace, self respect and confidence — life lessons he now hopes to pass onto a child.
When Holloway married Yessica Kumala in Hawaii in October 2004 (just as the series was gaining heat), both agreed that their desire to be free to explore the world did not allow for children. Now, having spent a good amount of time traveling, Holloway says, "we have changed our minds … only recently. Basically, nature happened. If you're in a loving relationship with someone, (having) children becomes a part of it. I don't know exactly when or how, but we're very open to either having our own children or adopting."
From the top of the canyon, hikers are awarded a breathtaking view of both the Hollywood sign and the city itself. Along a trail, the actor is recognized by two student filmmakers who ask if he wouldn't mind making a cameo in a short film they are shooting. He can't say yes, of course, and politely explains his agents' role. "I dig you, man," he tells one of them.
Holloway can't help but be reminded of his own years struggling to make it as an actor in L.A. before Lost catapulted him to stardom. When the show ends in 2010, he says, "we'll probably get us a little place here because the biz is here, and I want to stay in it." But he will also spend time at his home in the Colorado Rockies and the Hawaiian beach house he intends to maintain as a rental.
He's already experiencing "a new hunger to really express what's inside of me as an artist."
For Holloway, that means taking chances.
He began his career modeling for high-end fashion houses, "hanging out" with the likes of Gianni Versace and Giorgio Armani. But after landing Lost, he turned his back on that world "to be respected as an actor."
Four years later, he is allowing himself to be photographed as the face of Cool Water cologne, replacing pro surfer Laird Hamilton. Promotional images depicting Holloway cliff-diving in China have appeared in Europe over the past two years, but only now is he making a splash in American markets.
Preparing for a future, he is finally taking seriously the production company he formed primarily for tax reasons. "I have all these ideas for shows — from reality, to writing, to directing," he says, clearly excited. He recently wrote two comedy skits he'd love to perform as a guest host on Saturday Night Live.
Beyond that, he and Yessica are discussing opening a day spa. Perhaps offering a hands-on deep tissue massage from Sawyer himself?
"Of course," Holloway declares with great bravado, followed by a wicked chuckle. "In my Spee-do!"
1) What do you find the most challenging aspect of performing the flash-forward scenes?
The most challenging aspect is not knowing the whole storyline. I'm left to fill in a lot of blanks. For example, what happened to Sun when she finally returned to Korea? We know she delivered her baby, Ji Yeon, but how did she find out her father, Mr. Paik, is seemingly connected to the Hanso Foundation?
And there so many more ... I'm left guessing a lot of these things on my own and hope for the best.
2) Can you offer some teasers/hints about the Oceanic 6's great escape?
It was pretty tough. We were joking about how amazing it is that the baby made it. After we escape one peril or another, we look over at the doll which acts as the baby's stunt double and say stuff like, "Oh no, the baby's not moving!"
3) Can you offer some teasers/hints about the Oceanic 6's great escape?
Without giving too much away ... I have to say the Oceanic 6's great escape feels like it was inevitable. A lot of events occurred, some heroic sacrifices, fortunate accidents, fate, but most importantly, love saved them.
Emotionally? Emotionally ... emptiness.
1) What do you find the most challenging aspect of performing the flash-forward scenes?
The challenge is always figuring out how convey the essence of my emotional experience in these flash-forwards while still being too young to talk. Not only that, I've also got these three other babies sharing my part with me, and, excuse me for sounding like a diva, but they all have their own misguided interpretations of the role.
2) Can you offer some teasers/hints about the Oceanic 6's great escape?
Let's just say filming scenes about escaping from an island is pretty darn scary when you can't walk, swim or fly a helicopter. Sure I can cry on a dime, but let's just say the fear I experienced shooting those scenes was very real.
THE OCEANIC 6 are scattered all over the island, all over Membata, if viewers are to believe this is the name of the place where Oceanic Flight 815 crashed 101 days ago. The very island Locke (Terry O'Quinn) thinks he wants to move. Can move.
Every member of the elusive group of "Lost" castaways, who we already know will leave the island, is in peril. Jack, Kate, Hurley, Sun, Sayid and baby Aaron are all fighting separately to live, struggling to escape. They are nowhere near the helicopter that can fly them to the freighter in the ocean, the vessel that could save them, if there wasn't a bomb on it.
But how do they leave? When will they separate from the rest of the survivors? What price will they pay?
When the "Lost" two-hour season finale airs Thursday, it will end not just another chapter in ABC's island saga. It also will close a season of ground-breaking storytelling that has carried viewers from present and past narratives, the signature of the show, to the future -- to be colored further with flashbacks of the flash forwards -- that is, glimpses of the future that predate other future events the audience has already seen. This season, the writers filled in the blanks by showing us another snippet of the future that occurred before that moment to let viewers know that "he" is Claire's baby, Aaron.
Using the flashback technique to develop character has become so popular across the TV landscape since "Lost" premiered in 2004 that it seems likely that flashing forward in increments to drive plot will follow suit. "Lost" producers have used this device to push the story forward and to answer some of the many island mysteries that fans both love and hate.
"It's an interesting development in the story that suddenly we deal with the post-island world, but it's imperfect," said Michael Emerson, who plays Ben Linus, the master-manipulator leader of the Others, whom viewers have seen off the island as well. "It's as imperfect as the island world and the only way it can be inhabited by the Oceanic 6 is by way of the big lie. So it's a compromised world.
"And the island may be more important to the survivors when they leave it than when they stood upon it," he continued. "The island of the mind, if you will. But it's a place that has a hold over them. The island never loses its power."
EVIDENTLY, that's also the case for "Lost" viewers. The flash-forward device has energized many fans who had become disenchanted during last year, as more characters and mysteries were introduced and favorite castaways were sidelined. Averaging 14.6 million viewers, "Lost" ranks ninth among all TV series in the desirable 18- to 49-year-old demographic and has been the top-rated show in both of its time slots all season, despite being on a new night.
Viewers have responded favorably to the show's hastened narrative pace, but some have griped that, at times, piecing the timeline has been challenging. "By doing the flash-forwards, we made the audience deeply suspicious and they don't know what to believe when you want them to believe something," executive producer Carlton Cuse said, aware of the Internet chatter among Losties.
With only two hours left, the producers have much ground to cover. In the future, fans have seen Jack (Matthew Fox) and Kate (Evangeline Lilly) as a couple raising Aaron without mention of what happened to Claire (Emilie de Ravin). Hurley (Jorge Garcia) winds up in a mental hospital again; Sayid (Naveen Andrews) is working as an assassin for Ben around the globe; and Sun (Yunjin Kim) gives birth and mourns the loss of her husband, Jin (Daniel Dae Kim), even though viewers have not witnessed his death.
What fans have yet to see is what happened after last season's time-busting revelation that Jack and Kate leave the island in the future but something makes Jack want to return. On Thursday, "Lost" will take viewers to that very moment of Jack's pained "We have to go back!" and move beyond it. It also will disclose "one of the island's greatest secrets," according to Emerson.
"The finale is about the culmination of this idea that a group of people who desperately wanted to get off the island find themselves in the position of defending the island that they've been trying to leave," Cuse said.
But producers won't disclose what fans are dying to know. Many viewers, as evidenced on message boards, are convinced that next season post-island life becomes the present and the past is life on the island.
"All we can say is that it's going to be very hard to get back to the island for those guys," co-creator and executive producer Damon Lindelof said. "But life will continue for the people who are not with them. How are we going to tell that story? We're not going to tell that." In fact, Lindelof vowed during an interview that after the finale airs he and Cuse "are going into radio silence until next season."
But Emerson, talking from the Hawaii set by telephone, has a theory. "Every season, in the telling of 'Lost,' the lens pulls back another notch so that the picture gets bigger, includes more stuff, more people, more places," he said. "So I'll be curious to see what is now included when the lens jumps back another step. I think it will be more fragmented. The geography of the show as we've known it will be upset. Everybody will be in a new place."
Kim, who said there "will be casualties," took it one step further: "The finale will change the way you watch the show. It will introduce new variables that would never even be considered previously."
When viewers last saw the Oceanic 6, Jack and Sawyer (Josh Holloway) dodged the helicopter that could have rescued them to try to protect Hurley.
Hurley was hiding from the freighter folks who want to kill Ben. The Others came down the mountain and captured Kate and Sayid. Sun, Jin and Aaron were onboard the bomb-carrying freighter.
"Aw, man, the finale is crazy," Garcia said. "You will definitely see how we all end up together and back on civilization. But it's as if there is one obstacle after another in front of us and the fact that we make it off is definitely a miracle."
JUST HOW did these half a dozen plane crash survivors -- and not their counterparts -- come to be the Oceanic 6?
The producers began to make their selections in the second season but did not pick all six until after they had negotiated 2010 as an end date for the series and could plan out the rest of the stories. The first requirement was that they had to be passengers on flight Oceanic 815, which crashed on the island on Sept. 22, 2004, and not any of the other island inhabitants
"Jack has been saying from the word go, 'I'm gonna get everybody off the island.' So we thought, 'What happens if the hero accomplishes his goal but realizes he's made a horrible mistake?' " Lindelof said. "And he would only qualify it a success if Kate were off the island as well. We also knew the baby had to be a part of it. Then we asked ourselves, 'Who are the other people who have something to go back to and what might their lives be like off the island?' "
The answer was Sayid, Sun and Hurley, but Lindelof and Cuse won't say exactly why, noting that some of their reasons are based on events in upcoming seasons that even the cast ignores at this point.
"Those choices are representations of the dramatic poles of the characters," Cuse said. "Jack is the ultimate empiricist. He's never believed in the mystery and the mythology of the island. He just wants to get the hell off this place whereas Locke has embraced the mysteries of the island. His goal is to understand what the island is about."
Nobody was more surprised to learn he was in the exclusive club than Garcia. Often, the emotional center of the show, Hurley, isn't in the middle of the action.
"I knew some people were getting off and some weren't and I assumed at the time that it was all going to be people close to the [satellite] phone," Garcia said. "But it turned out to be a bunch of us from all over the place and I thought it was cool because it became a puzzle to unravel as to how we all end up together off the island."
The only exception to the only-passengers rule is Aaron, who wasn't on the manifest because he was born on the island. That Kate is his mother off-island is one of the components of the intricate lie the Oceanic 6 weave when they reach civilization. From the beginning, viewers have wondered if Aaron is somehow at the center of the show's mythology. The producers have repeatedly said the island is not purgatory, but whether Aaron (or Locke or Ben or who knows?) is pivotal to a healing island with smoke monsters and electro-magnetic properties remains to be seen.
"It could go either way," said De Ravin, who plays Claire, who in the present could be dead or undead, depending on how you look at it. "Seeing as they've already revealed him to be with Kate, there's got to be some other twist there. He's just a little baby, so it's hard to tell if he has some crazy powers. Maybe he can see the future too."
The future doesn't look so promising for Jin, whose wife grieved by his grave in Korea. But many fans, taking a cue from his tombstone, which listed the day of the crash as the day he died, don't believe Jin is dead.
"I do like the fact that his fate is unresolved and that his life is in jeopardy," Kim said. "Now, believing that he might be dead, I'm getting a lot of people saying, 'Wow, please, don't be dead.' It's a nice sign of appreciation for a character that I haven't necessarily felt in the past."
The finale, Cuse said, will have "some spectacular romantic moments along with spectacular action moments."
"The story of the Oceanic 6 is the ultimate break-up story," Lindelof added. "That's what the finale is about -- everybody breaking up. And the show is going to have to proceed from here as to whether or not we're going to get everybody together. Who is still around to get together?".
On the eve of the season finale, the actress who plays Kate, dishes on island fever, how Losties are different than Trekkies, and on her newfound love of Bjork
MSN TV: Does spending so much time in Hawaii ruin it as a lovely place to be?
Evangeline Lilly: It's true, but you still recognize how lovely a place it is, and in some ways you realize more than a visitor would how lovely it is. But, like anywhere in the world, every place has its downfalls and frustrations. At the same time as being an incredible place to live, it can be a place that makes you want to slit your throat sometimes. It's a tiny, tiny, tiny island where there's really nowhere to go. There's no nightlife. It's a very slow, relaxed culture, which is ideal when you're on vacation because it forces you to relax and to stop and smell the roses. But when you're working hard and you're very, very busy, that can start to get frustrating.
What is it that you find makes you most crazy when island fever kicks in?
When you're a busy person who's trying to efficiently run your life but everything around you is run inefficiently, that starts to eventually wear you down.
"Lost" fans are incredibly passionate about the show, and William Shatner famously hated "Star Trek" fans for being so devoted to the minutiae of that show. Do you ever get tired of talking about "Lost" ad nauseam?
I don't, really. I can honestly say that I'm kind of sheltered from a lot of that because I'm a bit of a recluse. But when I do encounter it I don't find it as frustrating as most people. And I also think that there's an awareness amongst fans nowadays that maybe wasn't there in the 1970s, because we've gone through some fanatical times with Trekkies. But the Losties are aware of the fact that they don't want to repulse the people on the show they are so much enjoying. People are careful about being more respectful of their space and sanity.
Might we be seeing you at any upcoming "Lost" fan conventions, perhaps?
They absolutely exist! Losties is the term for the fans, and they have conventions and Web communities and all sorts of stuff out there. It's actually a rabbit hole that I'm slightly terrified to go down.
Matthew Fox has kept a high profile during the show's hiatuses by making films. Is that something you've considered as well?
I've definitely considered it because it's there and it's the obvious option, but I'm very focused on "Lost" and give it all of my attention. I read scripts and I'm always looking for one that might blow me away so much that I'd want to spend my spare time -- which I have very little of -- working. But they don't come along very often. I did a film last summer because I found a script that was so beautiful, and I really believed in the story and the message behind it. It does happen, but it's very rare.
Since you're done shooting now, have you figured out what you're going to do until you start up again?
I'm doing some press for about another week, and then when that's over I'm going to relax and then I'm going to take a vacation.
Where are you going to go? Do you know yet?
I'm going to probably be in Europe and then maybe Latin America after that.
Is it accurate to say that you're a reluctant sex symbol?
I think it's very accurate. I think reluctant may not be strong enough of a word. I fight it really hard. I feel like this culture that we live in where women aspire to a certain aesthetic standard -- that I happen to think is boring because its one tone, one idea of beauty -- I don't like to feed into that. So I fight it really hard.
I imagine that's hard when there are paparazzi hiding in the bushes and you feel like you have to put makeup on to leave the house. Do you find that to be a nuisance?
I find the paparazzi to be a massive nuisance because I appreciate my privacy. But I never wear makeup when I leave the house for them. If they take a picture of me when I look like hell, good!
Are people ever terrified when they sit down next to you on a plane?
Well they mock looking terrified that something will happen, but mostly what they're doing is just trying to find a way to make conversation.
What's on your mp3 player?
Oh, lots and lots of good stuff. Recently I've been getting into Bjork. I love Eisley. I love Radiohead. I'm a big fan of Damien Rice, the Postal Service. I stay true to my Canadian roots -- Sarah McLachlan is one of my favorite artists of all time. Oldies, classical, R&B. I kind of just run the gamut. If I had to say I lean in one genre more than another it'd be singer/songwriter stuff.
"Lost" has a lot to live up to in its finales. Last season's was one of the best episodes of the series, and I know it's important to the writers and producers to make the show's finales memorable. Do you think this year's stacks up to the finales of seasons past?
I think it blows them away. I think the Season 3 finale was really good, but I think this season, our finale is the most hard-hitting finale we've ever done. It completely revolutionizes the face of our show. I have no idea what my show is going to look like next year based on the finale. And that's really exciting as an actress. It keeps you interested.
i guess you wondered where i was.... well i got BIG issue with internet, and my phone and i lose everything at home -_- so i'm in friend's house, to do my best to update my blog this morning i'm so sorry :( kiss lyly
A bunch of us were going, "Awww..." over photos of Lost's Kate with Baby Aaron, marveling at what an adorable tot the producers currently have playing the role of the Oceanic Six's tiniest member. Of course, as Emilie De Ravin has said, the infant actor (almost always a set of twins or triplets) is swapped out very regularly, so May 29 may be the last we see of this particularly photogenic Aaron.

Malik in Bangkok: I love Lost! Is anyone going to die in the season finale? I can tell you that a series regular who has been on the series since the first season will not be back next season (season five). According to inside sources, this person's contract has been put into a holding deal and the plan at this point is to have him or her return for season six. Guesses? (OK, I'll spare you the frantic emails: It is not Jack or Sawyer. It's a she.)
Wendell in Santa Fe, N.M.: Lost, girl! Spill! What can you tell me about the very end of this season? Remember how I told you that time traveling and teleporting is most definitely happening?(Duh) Well, let's just say that it's going to be happening on a much larger scale in the coming seasons. And if I tell you any more about that twist, I will break the heart of this sweet guy who's name rhymes with "Hey, mon" and karma will see to it that I return in the next life as grasshopper poo.

Two pilots are at the helm of a transport plane, maybe a C-17. One chatises the other for clinging to his lucky charm, the one holding the rabbit's foot says he has to be extra vigilant considering the cargo they are carrying. These two are the copilots of a Coast Guard transport that's bringing the Oceanic Six back to the mainland. Michelle Forbes is an Oceanic Airlines rep, strapped into the jump seat immediately behind the pilots. The pilots tell Forbes they're approaching the tarmac.
She goes back into the cargo hold where Jack, Hurley, Sayid, Sun and Kate are strapped in to passenger seats. Kate is holding Aaron. Michelle Forbes tells the Six the press wants to talk to them but she can get them out of it. Jack speaks for the group and says that's fine, they're prepared to answer any questions. Michelle Forbes leaves, tottering back to the cockpit in her stilettos.
Jack says they all know the story, but if they get any questions they can’t answer, the press will just assume they're in shock. Sun: "Jack, we are in shock." Sun and Sayid do like they're in shock, whereas Kate just looks generally devastated. Aaron is wearing an insanely adorable little overall jumper. The plane lands, and the gangplank is lowered.
The Six exit the back of the transport. Mama Reyes, Papa and Mama Paik, and Mama Shephard are all waiting. All three clans are overjoyed to see each other. Sayid and Kate have no families greeting them. Hugo jumps back after hugging his mom hello and introduces Sayid, who gets the full family hug treatment.
Kate, who looks especially freckly for some reason, holds on tight to Baby Aaron and looks around, all alone. I know that Sam Austen is probably supposed to be in Iraq or something (cf the background soldiers in "Something Nice Back Home") and I know her mom is perpetually dying, but she's all alone, and it shows.
3 sneak peek ! go sayid !! awwww ben you're awesome i can't wait to see once again the others and richard !!!! wow !! great sneak peek but jack you're an idiot, god dam nit, do you put sayid and des in your back and pushed them in the chopper....alalala and cute to see aaron so calm in sawyer's arm^^ awwwwww ^^
HONOLULU, Hawaii -- 'Lost' fans know her as Dr. Juliet Burke. But no one -- not even the 'Lost' castaways -- really know her. She's as mysterious as the island itself, but we got some answers out of Lost's Juliet.
The moment I met Elizabeth Mitchell, I knew one thing for certain. The 37-year-old actor and mother is nothing like the character she plays on the ABC's mega hit.
"This is your office (beach)," I remind Mitchell as we walk out on the balcony of an oceanfront suite at the luxurious Kahala Hotel and Resort in Honolulu. It's where members of the cast are shooting the Season 4 DVD. "This is my office, can you imagine?" asked Mitchell. No, Elizabeth! I really can't!
Even more confounding? What to think of her character, the gentle but cold Juliet.
"I think what we've seen over season 4, we'll continue to see a kind of more confused and messier Juliet," said Mitchell.
Juliet is a femme fatale with shifty loyalty.
"My husband read this thing on the Internet in huge capital letters, 'I HATE HER! Of course, I mean the character not the actress,' " confessed Mitchell. "I'm the one people hate, it's fascinating to me 'cause I've always been a fairly benign presence."
Benign no more. Mitchell admitted what makes Juliet so appealing is that no one knows what she's capable of and that she has to be a bit 'insane.'
"Obviously she'd do anything," said Mitchell. Anything to get off the island.
Like what? We'll have to wait on that. But Mitchell does offer a prediction for this season's finale: "I've been told two scenes, I don't know, probably someone is going to die, but I don't know who."
Lost bloggers think it's John Locke. "Oh, oh, it's amazing what can happen," laughed Mitchell. If you're a Lost fan and a little lost - the wait is over. The creators promise all the island's secrets will be revealed by 2010. But we want answers now.
Those flash forwards - do we believe them?
"I don't know, good question, I really don't know," insisted Mitchell. Hmmm. But she thinks she may be in the know with regard to the "Oceanic 6."
"I don't think everybody NOT on the 'Oceanic 6' is dead," she said. "Especially because Josh Holloway, the most popular 'Lost' character; I have a hard time believing they're going to kill him off and not show him again." And she also doubts baby Aaron counts towards the Oceanic total.
But would anyone mind if Benjamin Linus doesn't make it?
"Oh Ben, Ben," said an exasperated Mitchell. "She looked up to him, he took her out of a not-so-great-life. She was the prized possession, he knows everything about her, how enticing would that be?" said Mitchell, "That's why it's even worse, the betrayal is the ultimate and then he's so creepy!" In the same breath she paid homage to his acting gift. "He's brilliant."
Is Ben part of the "Oceanic 6"? Mitchell says no. She insists Ben can't be because he wasn't on the plane. Besides, if she gets her way, it's possible he won't get off the island (unless we're to believe those flash-forwards.): "I would very much like a huge fight with Ben where we both end up bruised and blooded soul and body."
That's Mitchell's theory - not the creators'.
More scoop? "She does love Jack...Juliet loves this man, she's not playing any games about it," admitted Mitchell. "I'd like to see something passionate happen with Jack."
Yeah, why would Jack want Kate, when he can have the vulnerable and viscous Juliet? Because, "I personally think Sawyer and Kate have this insane chemistry," Mitchell said.
And then there's that recent kiss between the two doctors.
"The kiss was fun," she said.
Mitchell praises all the cast, but singled out Matthew Fox who plays Dr. Jack Shepard.
"He's a wonderful actor, a really giving actor," she said.
She told me playing Juliet is a "role of a lifetime".
"She's my favorite, my favorite I've ever played, she's massively fun for me," said Mitchell. "She captivated me, everything they wrote captivated me. It has nothing to do with my performance, had I read it in a book I would have been captivated."
Playing Juliet may be the role of a lifetime, but, Mitchell's big break may have come when she played Angelina Jolie's lover in 'Gia', a made-for-TV movie in 1998.
Fans may remember her character on 'ER', but the star was really born in Dallas, Texas the day she took the stage in 'Alice Thru the Looking Glass.' She was just 7 years old.
"I was like 'Hey Mom, I got the part!' and she was like,' Oh, Tweedle Dee or Tweedle Dum? What are you doing?' I was like, 'I'm Alice!' And she was like 'Alice! What???' "
We won't even count how many lines she had to memorize.
"The first time you get a laugh on stage or you have a moment where you're with the audience, that's where it's truly a gift," insisted Mitchell.
But no gift trumps the role of motherhood - being CJ's mom. Her sweet, 2 1/2-year-old son ended our interview. I met him as he traded Dad's arms for Mom's hip all the while waving a prized stick he found on the beach.
As I quickly found out, he's all boy and very territorial about his mother. Thanks CJ for letting me meet your parents!
Elizabeth and husband Chris, an acting teacher are -- well -- Chris is the real Dr. Jack Shepard in her life.
"Chris and I are very much in love," said Mitchell. She gives him a squeeze and a kiss before we settle in for our chat.
The family lives on Oahu while shooting 'Lost', then retreats to their home in Seattle. The couple used to live in L.A., but wanted a more family-friendly place to raise their son. Seattle was an easy choice.
"I really fell in love with it from the sky for the most part, looking down I was like, 'What an incredibly gorgeous place,' " she said.
"It fits both of us so perfectly, 'cause we're such huge readers, we love music and art," Mitchell added. "All the things Seattle is rich with, we love."
When in Seattle, Mitchell told me she's a nerd. She loves to stay at home, garden, watch movies and read. And yes, she's a 'Lost' fan.
I asked her what she thinks makes the show so special. She knew instantly: "Oh, I have to say it's the writing." Mitchell thinks the writers are as good at story arc as they are at keeping secrets.
That, says Mitchell, is one of the secrets to 'Lost's success -- it's like life, we don't know what's going to happen.
If you're like me, you've done little else today other than think about last night's mind-splitting episode of Lost, what with all its mystery and intrigue and puzzle pieces. Not to mention the apparent time travel, freak-deaky cabin and the reveal that the island must be "moved." WTF?!
Thankfully, the big cheeses in charge, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, agreed to spend a little time this morning answering a few questions. And while I had agreed beforehand to not delve too deeply into anything spoilery, I tried my best to get us all some info we can chew over until the next episode airs!
Among the findings in this interview:
* The question is not whether Claire is dead but “What happened to Claire?” * Christian Shephard is dead. * Time travel is definitely happening on this show. * Sounds to me like Richard Alpert is doing it. (Remind me later of a theory I have relating to time travel and the knocking up of Losties' moms!) * They were surprised by today's "announcement" of two extra episodes in season five and six. * They know whom Kate will end up with in the very end.
Keep reading for the scoop!
First of all, damn you guys and this show. It was such a good episode, I was up all night trying to wrap my head around everything. Damon Lindelof: Carlton? You know we don’t understand it either.
That is comforting. Well, congratulations, I think the fan response has been so positive this season. There were some people who were frustrated in season three, and I feel like all those people who were cynical are back into the fandemonium of the show. D.L.: My feeling about is that it feels great, and we're enjoying it more than we ever enjoyed it before, for having gone through the dark times. And at the same time, our attitude isn't, "I told you so! We're awesome!" because I know we still have 34 episodes to go, and it's a roller coaster. And at the end of the day, people put a lot of weight on the finale, because the finale is the taste left in their mouth for the next eight months. Nobody's talking about the undefeated season that the New England Patriots had—everybody's talking about the fact that the Giants won the Super Bowl. So until the finale is aired and people respond to that, there are no laurels to be resting on. Carlton Cuse: Me, I'm just happy, with no qualifications whatsoever.
How are you feeling about the finale about this point? Are you feeling pretty confident about it? C.C.: Yes, we were up until the wee hours last night editing the finale. I think we're pretty pleased. We want to be cautious in our optimism, but it feels like the film that we are getting back from Hawaii is fantastic. Jack Bender is doing a great job directing it, and I think that people will be surprised by the finale. Not in the literal M. Night Shyamalan way that we surprised the audience last year, but I think emotionally satisfying and also intriguing—and we'll leave people very excited and interested to figure out what season five is going to be about.
D.L.: Yes, there's a sense of completeness this year in terms of what we set out to do in season four: to tell the story of how the Oceanic Six got off the island, why they are lying and what happened in the immediate aftermath of them being rescued, all the way up to Jack yelling at Kate, "We have to go back!" And we feel we've accomplished that, and beyond that, there's an indication in the finale of what the future may hold. We're really glad that we got the extra hour from ABC. That made a huge difference in being able to do the two-hour finale, or else it would've felt...We were sitting in the editing room last night watching one of the scenes, and we looked at each other, and said, "I can't believe we ever thought we were going to be able to do this in an hour." The scope is large.
Was this season considerably different then it would've been had we not had the strike, or do you feel that you accomplished what you had originally set out to accomplish? C.C.: I think in a funny way it was probably better because of the strike, for two reasons: First, we just put the pedal all the way down to the metal to get everything done with two fewer hours. A lot of the more languid, contemplative material went out the window. And two, I think we were fresh after 100 days off. We came back, and we jumped into the show. We were recharged, and we've had a real energy to attack these last six episodes. Normally, at the end of a season, it's like running a marathon. You're exhausted, you've used every good idea that you've had and you have fatigue from having written 17 episodes. We came in fresh, really energized, and I think that really helped the batch of episodes.
D.L.: It's crazy because you've now seen three episodes of the poststrike work, and we didn't even start writing them until Valentine's Day, and now they've aired. It's a tremendous amount of energy put in by the writing staff, the production staff, the actors and the editors. Right now we literally have four editors and assistants all working around the clock just to get the finale done. And Jack Bender is still shooting today, and we're going to air this two-hour movie two weeks from last night. So we're really proud of the fact that we were able to write and produce six hours of television in a 12-week period, which is essentially the same amount of time we had to produce the pilot.
And we found out that there will be one more episode in each of these seasons. Are you happy about that? D.L.: I don't know where that came from. I think Carlton and I did a KROQ interview yesterday, and they asked about the two episodes that didn't get done this year, and we reiterated as we have in many interviews we will probably do 17 next year and 17 the following year. And now everyone's presenting it to us like it's an official announcement.
C.C.: Poststrike we always said we would make up the ones that got dropped.
Obviously the big question after last night's episode, leading into that finale, is: "How are they going to move the Island?" which is a fantastic twist. Also, "Is Claire dead?" Is that a question you are wanting the fans to be asking at this point? C.C.: I think we want the fans to ask, "What's happened to Claire?" I don't think it's "Is she dead?" I think it's like, "Where is she?" and, "What's going on with her?"
D.L.: What's fascinating with Lost is there's a scene where Claire is in the cabin, and she is sitting next to a guy who is dead, and nobody is saying "What's up with that?" They're all asking "Is she dead?" I think the more operative question is "What is dead?" That's a good question to ask, and one you will certainly be asking over the long hiatus. Can you say if time travel is definitely a part of the series? C.C.: Yes. How do you keep all of the different timelines straight? I have to imagine there's some huge board somewhere where you have all of the timelines because there's so much overlap at this point. Is it difficult keeping all of that straight, and how closely do you guard that room where all the secrets are kept? D.L.: We have a guy, Gregg Nations, who is now coproducer on the show who has been our script coordinator since the very beginning, and that's been his job maintaining the continuity of the show. The easiest continuity to keep is what's happening on the Island starting on Sept. 22, 2004, up until where we are now, which is roughly about day 100 on the Island, as of what you saw last night. That's fairly easy. And then the flashbacks—they start becoming confusing relative to each other. It's not that hard to say Jack ratted out his father and got him fired before he went to Australia, but all of that happened after he broke up with Sarah. [What is hard to sort out is] how those scenes take place in relation to Hurley winning the lottery or Sayid leaving Iraq...so that's all Gregg's job.
Once we moved into the future this year, it has become incredibly daunting for him, because all the Oceanic Six are intertwined, and you will begin to see in the finale, as we begin to fill in these missing pieces in the future, trying to understand the conditions under which the Oceanic Six left the island, and why are they lying. That gets incredibly tricky. And you will finally get a sense of when the scene you saw in last year's finale takes place in relation to all of these other scenes where Jack and Kate are on the tarmac.
So, there is no physical document, it's all sort of in Gregg's head. If he were to leave the show or have a massive coronary, it would take Tom Hanks from The DaVinci Code to piece it together, which is how we like it.
C.C.: But he's, just to be clear, he's the keeper of everything that's been done on the show, not the stuff that will be done. He doesn't have to live in a locked vault, because he doesn't have the stuff that is yet to be seen on the show. It's enormously beneficial to have Gregg as a resource because we ourselves sometimes have a hard time figuring out where events happened relative to other events. Well, you guys know that the fans are very passionate about how the romantic storylines go on the show. In the last episode, obviously, we had some really great Jack and Kate stuff. Does it make it tricky to write the romances knowing that the fans do feel so strongly about it? And how much do you take into account how they are going to react to a Kate and Jack scene or a Kate and Sawyer scene? D.L.: At the end of the day, we haven't done any official polling, but it feels like there's a 50-50 Skater-Jater spilt, and Juliet is sort of the Ross Perot. The people who are passionate about Jacket are very passionate, but ultimately the triangle is a product of Kate and will she end up with Jack or Sawyer. It's not like Carlton and I are both rooting for Jack on any given day. We feel like Kate's character is bound to explore relationships with both those guys and that both those guys are going to be responsive to her various advances. We know who she ends up with ultimately, but we think the trail leading there is obviously going to include a little bit of ping-ponging.
C.C.: We're both Skaters and Jaters at the same time.
This is a question I don't know if you can or will want to answer: Does Richard Alpert age? C.C.: Does Richard Alpert age? I think it's a good observation to say that Richard Albert has been observed in various time periods looking the same, but I think that's all we want to say at this point in time. However, you will learn a lot more about Richard Alpert as the show goes on. He is going to become more prominent in the future of the show.
And it seems like the series has branched off in so many different directions. The scope of what has happened on Lost is just so vast and so intricate. As the series continues for the next few seasons, will things start to come together in some sort of cohesive way or are you still branching out further? C.C.: We were actually laughing about this the other day. How, back at the beginning, finding water was sort of the crisis, not whether the island can be moved. The stakes have definitely risen.
We have two seasons left, so we think there will be more incredibly compelling complications for the characters before we get to the end, but again, the great virtue of the end date is that we will start wrapping things up, and we will be trying to tie up all the story threads.
We keep a list of unanswered questions, and we will be trying to answer most of those. Obviously, mystery is a part of life, and mystery is a part of the show. I guess we'll all have to see at the end of the day how satisfied people are, but it is our intention to try to wrap things up. I don't know if the show will become simpler, but hopefully in the wrapping up of these questions, it will be satisfying.
D.L.: There are some questions that are very engaging and interesting, and then there are other questions that we have no interest whatsoever in answering. We call it the midi-chlorian debate, because at a certain point, explaining something mystical demystifies it. To try and have a character come and say, "Here is what the numbers mean," actually makes every usage of the numbers up to that point less interesting.
You can actually watch Star Wars now, and when Obi-Wan talks about the Force to Luke for the first time, it loses its luster because the Force has been explained as, sort of, little biological agents that are in your blood stream. So you go, "Oh, I liked Obi-Wan's version a lot better." Which in the case of our show is, "The numbers are bad luck, they keep popping up in Hurley's life, they appear on the island."
C.C.: I heard that Obi-Wan had actually experienced the numbers. That's actually a big secret that's now been revealed.
D.L.: But if you're watching the show for a detailed explanation of what the numbers mean—and I'm not saying you won't see more of them—then you will be disappointed by the end of season six. Do you see Penny and Desmond as a central plot for the show? And if Penny were to die would Desmond die because she's his Constant? Is that a fair assumption? D.L.: Desmond and Penny are an incredibly important part of the show, and one of our favorite romances and relationship to write on the show. Obviously, Sonya Walger is an incredibly busy actor, and as a result of that, it limits our ability to go to the Penny and Desmond well, but every time we do, it's very special as something that we do not get to explore every other week. All we can say is that there's a lot more to tell about that story, but hopefully you will have a better sense of that over the summer.
And how much do you know about what you'll be doing next season. Do you know who the cast will be for season five? Have you figured that out? C.C.: We are just starting our minicamping process for season five. That's sort of where we take the big ideas for season five and try to break 'em down into a season-long story arc. So it's a little too premature for us to say specifically what season five is going to be like, in great detail—and once we figure that out we probably won't say anything anyway.
D.L.: We know what the story for the two remaining seasons is, but the big questions on the table now are what goes on in season five and what do we hold for season six. We don't want the audience to think that season five is just a big tap dance. It's not The Two Towers in The Lord of the Rings saga where it's just a big battle for three hours until you get to the volcano.
C.C.: We hope it's going to be more like the Empire Strikes Back, in Star Wars, in which the penultimate chapter in the first saga was the best.
D.L.: We can say, as a result of the reduced episodic order though, that we are not shifting out of question-answering mode. You'll still get some new, interesting questions along the way in season five that will pay off in season six, but there are a lot of engaging mysteries that we will be addressing right out of the gate.
We have been in the jungle, at a church, in a rescue plane and on the studio lot. This is the last week of filming.
Both Claire and Kate have held my little one. Kate was amazingly sweet and polite. Sawyer sang us songs on his guitar off set. Ate lunch (amazing food) near Locke and Ben. Hurley took pictures with us. Sayid (crazy accent!) was so kind and gracious offering us extra water.
It has been the greatest adventure. 90% of the cast and crew are so great to work with!
I dont want to spoil too much, but interestingly enough I dont ever remember having to sign a confidentiality agreement.
So I will walk a fine line....
Interestingly enough. Most of the extra babies are girls!
Daniel Dae Kim, who plays castaway Jin-Soo Kwon on ABC's Lost, told SCI FI Wire that he is OK with his character's fate, whatever it may be. And, no, he wouldn't say what that is.
Fans know that Jin's ultimate fate was thrown into doubt (spoilers ahead!) in the recent episode "Ji Yeon," in which Jin's wife, Sun (Yunjin Kim), is seen in a flash-forward at what appears to be Jin's grave.
"You know, if he doesn't make it, it's been a great ride," Daniel Dae Kim said in an interview at the Hollywood premiere on May 7 of his upcoming A&E miniseries The Andromeda Strain. "It's been an incredible opportunity. If he does make it, it means the roller-coaster ride continues. Either way, it's a win-win."
Kim added that the producers have told him some of what's coming up. "A few things," he said. "But very broad, general strokes."
Kim just wrapped shooting of season four, which resumed with new episodes in late April after an interruption because of the Hollywood writers' strike. Season four wraps up May 29.
Is Kim ready to say goodbye to the island for good? "The writers--regardless of whether we're ready to say goodbye to it or not--the writers have such a way of continuing to delve into the characters," he said. "So there's always seem to be more story to tell." That sounds like no. Lost airs Thursdays at 10 p.m
************************** thank to The Odifor the transcript 1) Try to react and please the fans. Use Niki and Paulo example. Plus check online to see what fans think of pace and if something is too confusing. Happy they signed a deal with ABC to end the show. 2) Numbers will return in season finale. They are obsessed with the numbers 3) Dharma will return in Season 5 and is a "huge" part of show 4) Assume everyone watching is smart and just keep pushing ahead, but ABC has done a good job to help those that miss all the clues in the show 5) Romantic stories in finale 6) Locke will chat with occupants in Jacob's Cabin 7) No problem killing characters? They want the story to feel real. 8) Master list of unanswered questions and they review it every so often to make sure they are answering them.
********************** Jorge Garcia said the finale is gonna be "Ummm.... Well it's going to be hard to top Kate and Jack off island. But it's big. Really big."
I don't know if you noticed, but this season on Lost, Kate totally stole baby Aaron and killed Claire and buried her under a rock!!!
The mysteries of Lost are not easily solved, and certainly not easily guessed, but thankfully, the lovely Emilie de Ravin just phoned up and was kind enough to share a few of her insights into Claire's situation. (Yay for clues!)
Click in for Emilie's thoughts and a few teases about what's up with ghost dad, that misplaced infant and her character's big new storyline...
Let's go back to the beginning of the season. I think there was supposed to be a ring and a letter that Charlie left for Claire and Aaron. Did Claire ever get those? I know! I don't know whatever happened with that, right? Oh God, now you're testing my memory.
Maybe the baby has the ring? [Laughs.] Yes, the baby is wearing it around his wrist. Or maybe it's a toe ring.
Around "Eggtown," some people asked why Claire didn't seem to be more upset about Charlie. How did you feel about that? I think she had her time to grieve, and I think she's just got so much going on that she has to survive, basically, and put that behind her as much as she can.
From what I've read, you've always been very, very gracious about the fact that as an actress you have to carry this baby around in almost every scene you do. Have you ever thought, "If only I didn't have that darn kid, I could have so many more adventures!" It definitely holds Claire back as far as she's not going to be running around with a gun trying to kill people or trying to save people—because she has this child and she has to protect him—but that makes it interesting in another way for me.
Do you think that might change now? Yeah, if Claire and Aaron are separated, I think for sure.
Interesting. Let's talk about your dear deadbeat dad, who showed up in "Something Nice Back Home." Claire had only met him once, and she presumably doesn't know that she shares a dad with Jack. No, neither of them know on the Island.
What do you think he said to her when he showed up at the fire? Will we find that out? He said he wants to show her something.
And we have four more hours of the season left to see. Could we assume you share a few more scenes with your dear old dad? Possibly.
Do you think he has the same agenda for both his children? I don't know. It seems he has different agendas, but who knows, he seems to be a very mysterious man.
He seems to be a dirty rotten scoundrel, but that's why we love him so much. Is there anything you can tease to about what happens to Claire in the next four hours of Lost? You might see Claire in an unexpected environment. There were a couple of scenes that were really cool, actually. Just because they're so different. And maybe not really the Claire you know.
Hmmm...And we've heard you might have new and exciting storyline, which I would guess has to do with your dear daddy. Yes.
Do you think that storyline twist will continue through seasons five and six, or is it primarily through the end of season four? I can't see it not continuing, but I guess who knows. They can always come back to things or break the map, you know.
Is it true your contract is being renegotiated so you'll be either be on the show a little more or a little less next season? No, I haven't heard anything about that. In terms of what the finale showed you about the characters that are not the Oceanic Six, including Claire, did the answers turn out to be what you expected or something a little different? It's never what I expected. Rarely do I read a script and I'm like, "Yeah, that's what I thought would happen." But no, there's a lot going on in the finale, a lot.
Do we get Matthew Abbadon's "Are they alive?" question answered? It's somewhat answered, but somewhat not.
thank you to answer petit fromage, i'm sure he was happy to read it at morning ;)
Alexandre in Toulon, France: Kristin! God I lose my French accent when I saw Jack and Kate hooked up! what happened? Please tell me it was a nightmare and Kate's heart still belongs to Sawyer!
Hee! Sorry, I had to include this question, 'cause it cracks me up. Who knew a TV show could make you lose your accent? But I hear you, mon petit fromage! Here's the thing: That spectacular kiss is still coming. In the season finale. Only a few weeks away. So let's all sit tight, OK?
Ally in Ireland: Please tell me Sawyer doesn't die...He isn't one of the Oceanic 6?
Right, he's not. But Sawyer doesn't die. He's alive. On the Island.
Heather in Taos, N.M.: Is Locke still alive on the Island in the future? He has to be, right?
This is woefully delayed, due to the plague that swept through E! Online last week, but we checked in with Lost coexecutive producer Eddie Kitsis about last week's ep of Lost, "Something Nice Back Home," and got his awesome insights on:
* What exactly drove Jack to kick-start that pesky Clonazepam addiction? * When we might see the Oceanic Six next? * Why are some characters going crazy while others are finally turning sane?
Lesson No. 1, Motherhood Beats Paxil Any Day of the Week: I don't know about you guys, but to me, future Kate is stunningly even-keeled, especially when compared with the girl we've seen before and on the Island. What's up?
According to Eddie: "You could say motherhood suits her. In the flash-forwards of this season, and even of last season, when she meets Jack and she's annoyed with him, there's a sense of purpose to her, there's some clarity to her. There's so much devotion to that child, and she appears to be such a great mother—that's maybe what you're picking up on...I think when you have a child, they come first. Even though it's not hers, just the fact of taking care of Aaron may have helped her put away some other issues. Or not. It is Lost." But still...progress!
Lesson No. 2, Happiness Is Hot Coffee and a Warm Girlfriend: According to Eddie: "Like anything with Lost, you're just seeing a small amount of time in what is going to be a much larger picture, but I think 'Something Nice Back Home' was interesting because you saw a time, maybe brief, where Jack was happy. For that brief time, Jack decided after the trial at some point to pursue his relationship with Kate, to go see Aaron, and if you see that first scene, when he steps on the Millennium Falcon and he was making coffee, that was a Jack who was content." So, where'd it all go wrong?
Lesson No. 3, Sometimes You Should Just Talk to Your White-Shoed Dead Father: Unlike Hurley, who doesn't take his pills so he's able talk to Charlie, Jack takes pills so he can avoid seeing his dead dad—even though the ever-wise Hurley says that Christian will be coming by specifically to talk to Jack. Why the differing approach to communing with ghosts?
Says Eddie: "Jack has always been a man of science. He's always been a man of science, and there has to be something logical. The scene where Jack is starring at the bench where Hurley sits when Charlie visits him, I think in that moment he's thinking, my life right now is pretty good, I don't want to end up here."
Awww, come on, Doc, sitting under a banyan tree hanging with your BFF? That's awesome—who cares if the guy is dead?!
Lesson No. 4, Jacket Is Down, But Not Out: Don't assume that Juliet's self-sacrificing speech to Kate in the medical tent is the last we'll ever see of Jacket. Says Eddie: "Is that the end of Jack and Juliet? That is a definitive question that I can't answer, because...I can't. Because I work on Lost, and Damon and Carlton are parked outside my house, listening." Translation? It looks to me like a Jacket romance is unlikely at this point, but not altogether off the table.
Lesson No. 5, There Are Many Off-Island, O-Six Stories Yet to Come: Don't think that season four is the only season of Oceanic Six stories. According to Eddie: "I think that through the next two seasons, you will see bits and pieces of all the time off the Island, be it when they come back or a year later after they return. There are many interesting stories left to be had for all of the Oceanic Six."
Lesson No. 6, Eddie Is One of Us:Last but not least, even if you do think your flu is West Nile Virus, don't try and tell Eddie Kitsis that you're the most worst hypochondriac in the world. Says Eddie, "You haven't met me and Adam, because we don't touch doorknobs. I am known for being able to walk into the writers' room, to actually leave a bathroom, go into the kitchen, grab water, come into the writers' room and never touch anything. It is a skill I am known for on the show." Awww...Now that's my kind of guy!
As we draw nearer to the Season 4 finale, the “LOST” production crew is bringing the story ever closer to the pivotal moment when the Oceanic Six get off the island. To tell that story, they headed way out to Wai’anae, the arid, rural west coast of O’ahu. They established a base camp at Wai’anae Regional Park, and enlisted a handful of boats to carry equipment and crew across Pokai Bay.
The cast and their stand-ins took their direction on shore, then made their way into the ocean to film their scene. It was relatively simple in the narrative sense, but working on the water always makes things exponentially more complicated. Crew members had to keep a handle on a surfboard-riding director, hand held cameras and cameramen buffeted by the surf, a sound boat rocking on the waves, and keeping props from floating away. The primary prop? A large, octagonal life raft.
Action is called, and the stars get wet. Jorge Garcia, Yunjun Kim, Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, Naveen Andrews and Henry Ian Cusic swim toward the raft through some debris. In several takes, Hurley — clutching a doll that’s most likely playing Aaron — helps pull Kate, Sun, and Sayid aboard. But Jack and Desmond take a little longer to reach them. And Desmond is holding someone who’s not moving.
Who is in trouble? Exactly how did the Oceanic Six (plus one) end up in the water? Where are they? And how do they get from here to Hawaii? The answers will come soon enough! source : ryan blog see more pics here : pics of the set
