In an interview with the Honolulu Star Bulletin, actor Michael Emerson (Benjamin Linus) discusses his experiences at the Emmy Awards, and describes what he’s filmed for Season 6 so far — as vaguely as possible, of course. The key excerpt:
Emerson returned to Hawaii in August to shoot the sixth and final season of Lost. Though he confirms that completed episodes are “very dark and bloody,” he’s able to offer little about where the plot is going.
“I thought I would be able to see the ending that was coming, but I can’t,” he says of the series finale. “It’s still so opaque.”
Nor does he have any idea how the character will evolve, though he can guarantee Ben will never veer toward monotony. “I’ve had some vintage Ben stuff already, in the great tradition of Ben Linus manipulating a turnaround or surprising the audience. And there’s lots of that this season.”
