Josh Interview

There may be a buzz cut in Josh Holloway's future. "Possibly --as much as I love Robert Redford, I'm probably not going to have the same haircut for most of my career," said Holloway, who plays the long-haired Sawyer on Lost. "I'll shave it off, you know?" High-maintenance hairstyles aside, the 40-year-old Holloway is thrilled Sawyer has made it to the sixth and final season of Lost, which begins Tuesday on ABC and CTV. Early in Lost's run, Holloway was not sure Sawyer was going to be around for six episodes, let alone six years. "When I read the pilot, I was like, 'This guy's such an a------. I gotta figure out how to stay alive,' " Holloway said. "I remember telling my wife, 'Don't throw away those boxes, because unless he's got another dimension, he's going to be killed quickly.' " Not only was Sawyer not killed quickly, but in recent seasons much of the drama in Lost has been filtered through him. Sure, the enigmatic series has a great ensemble cast, but you have to admit, in some ways Sawyer has become the main character on Lost. "Wow," said Holloway, when that theory was put to him. "It really comes back to, 'Damn, I'm glad I'm not dead yet!' "To be a character who is somewhat pivotal is an honour for me, and a pressure, which is a good pressure, a creative pressure." Lost follows the struggles of airplane-crash survivors on a mysterious tropical island. Indeed, Sawyer started out as a bad guy, but he has become a tragic hero through the years, largely --we assume --because audiences responded to him. Sawyer has experienced two main love interests: Kate, played by Evangeline Lilly, and Juliet, played by Elizabeth Mitchell. Holloway was asked who he thinks Sawyer really loves most. "They're different, one being an undeniable love that just exists (Kate), and one that began as enemies, then friends, then developed into a softer, more mature relationship (Juliet)," Holloway said. "They're both valid in their own way, is what I'm trying to say." Juliet supposedly died in the bomb blast in the fifth-season finale. Now, who knows what death means in Lost --Mitchell has confirmed she's part of the sixth season in some form --but nonetheless, as the sixth season begins, Sawyer is a mess. "He definitely has the salts back this year," Holloway said. "He's completely emotionally destroyed and he does not care about life so much any more. "However, the lessons he has learned on the island and the humanity he has been forced to acknowledge is going to come into play, too. It's probably the only thing that will keep him from offing himself, you know?" Be forewarned: Holloway said the first episode of the final season of Lost feels like a finale, because of the scale and everything that's happening. "You're going to cry right away," Holloway said. "You'll laugh, you'll cry, pretty much everything, every episode. "They're pulling out all the stops emotionally and physically. This season is a stinger."
