Lost's Temple Master Speaks!

Spoiler Alert!

What are we to make of Lost’s perplexing temple master? He tried to drown and poison Sayid. Then in the February 23 episode, he turns up in Jack’s flash-sideways as a father advising Jack to be a hands-on dad. And exec producer Damon Lindelof says, on March 2, “Dogen’s mysterious origins and history with the island are finally revealed” as he faces off with Sayid. I tracked down actor Hiroyuki Sanada in his native Tokyo to find out more. Turns out the actor has a history with Matthew Fox. They became drinking buddies in Berlin while shooting “Speed Racer,” then continued their friendship (and drinking) in Tokyo when Matthew was promoting Lost. “I never imagined working with him again in Hawaii,” says Hiro, whose swordplay in films like “The Last Samurai” turned Lost producers into fans.

In the March 2 episode, we’ll learn why Dogen left Japan for a new life on the island. Hiro hints his appearance in Jack’s flash-sideways suggests that Dogen’s paternal influence may be realized in the temple. Also significant is the name of Dogen’s hippie translator, Lennon (as in the peace-loving Beatle), as well as Dogen’s name and costume, modeled after a 13th-century monk who introduced Zen meditation to Japan. “I believe Dogen and Sayid will experience some kind of friendship in the end,” Hiro says. “Temples are built for peace and saving people.”

Though he’s now back in Tokyo (which doesn’t bode well for his Lostgevity), last month he took boss Carlton Cuse out to a karaoke bar, where the EP belted out “Proud Mary.” And he’s expected to return Stateside in the spring to promote his role as Anthony Hopkins’ longtime boyfriend in the James Ivory film “The City of Your Final Destination.” Hiro quips: “Being Hannibal Lecter’s lover was a big challenge.”

Hello there :)

I must apologise - I have stumbled across your blog and haven't had time to read it properly yet. As you can see however, I have mentioned it on my blog as a Lost blog to check out - I like the look of this place:

My blog has a ton of Lost stuff on it, but also other stuff relating to comics, boxing, DVDs, etc the usual stuff.

I thought you might like to check it out, and I'll be checking out your blog too, and maybe we can advertise each others blogs or whatever.

I am doing a project just now called the Lost Blogging Collective:

Whereby each week I email a group of Lost bloggers (around 12 at the moment) 2 questions about Lost, and we all answer them to see how the fandom/blogosphere/*insert random buzzword* opinion is between us.

If any of this sounds interesting to you, I am always available at and interested in any kind of project or collaboration - I just love communicating with people in general :D

Finally, I have a competition to win a free Lost t-shirt. It's very easy to enter - just pick what t-shirt design you like, and a random person wins that t-shirt!! The comp ends on Friday though, so be quick if you are interested:

Okay, I feel I have taken up enough of your time now so I will leave it at that :) as soon as I get a spare few hours I will dedicate more time to reading your blog :)

Hope to hear from you soon!

- Chris
