Part of “Old Info And News”
The press meeting with part of the LOST cast to introduce its fourth season is as mysterious as the successful show. We are in a room in Disney’s studios at Burbank, and no one among the hundred journalist arrived from all around the world knows who will come. It is said that Evangeline Lilly (Kate). Or maybe Josh Holloway (Sawyer). Even Naveen Andrews might appear. “Impossible”, says someone who has been coming to these events for years. The actor who plays the tormented Sayid has never attended one of these meetings. But, surprise!, suddenly, Andrews enters the room. “I came to a Sex Pistols concert and took advantage of the chance of doing this”, he says, in a very good mood.
The amazement doesn’t end with him. There is also Harold Perrineau, Michael, a character that didn’t appear in the whole third season and that the day after this meeting will begin shooting in Hawaii his first comeback episode. “Last Friday I finished shooting a movie, the next day I took a plane to come here, and last night I was given a script I plan to read in the plane to Hawai, so I have absolutely no idea about what is going to happen”, he says.
Perrineau attitude is a reminder of how some things never change. The inscrutability is the norm while dealing with LOST. However, actors let out some things. Before, a warning: those who follow the third season through Canal 13 and haven’t finished watching it, are advised to not read further.
Elizabeth Mitchell, the blond and enigmatic Juliet in the show, says: “There are still lots of people left to die. There are many deaths… people exploding and things like that”. She also tells an anecdote that deepens the mistery: “Yesterday I was reading the script of the episode that comes after the one dedicated to my character. I cried a lot, because I learned something that I didn’t like finding out about”.
