‘Lost’ loses Emilie de Ravin
With so many questions looming about Lost’s impending fifth season, there’s at least one mystery that can be solved right now: we won’t be hearing a certain cry to "stay away from my bay-bay!"
At the Emmy awards last night, Entertainment Weekly‘s Michael Ausiello had the chance to interview actress Emilie de Ravin who plays young mother Claire Littleton on the hit island drama. Claire was last seen as hanging out with her spooky ghost father in Jacob’s cabin, leading many to theorize that Claire herself had sailed off to that big island in the sky. Now comes word from de Ravin herself that fans won’t be seeing Claire as a regular in the new season, starting in January, causing further speculation that the young Aussie is toast.
"I’ll miss everyone," de Ravin says of her departure, "but it’s also great for me, because I can go and work on some other things."
That doesn’t mean she’s walking off into the sunset completely. When asked if she’d be returning for the show’s final season, she answered a resounding "Yes."
While we’re in the process of bringing out our dead, now’s a good time to bring out our possibly living, too. Daniel Dae Kim, who plays Jin Soo Kwon on Lost, also spoke to Ausiello on the red carpet about his status on the show. He acknowledge that Jin’s fate was "up in the air" after potentially blowing up in last season’s finale (gee, ya think!?!) but he swore that "if you keep watching, you’ll be rewarded."
Pressed if he’d completed any actual filming on the show, Kim coyly replied, "I just came from Hawaii. One could interpret that as [a good sign]."
There you have it. One character lost, another one found, and the rest of us thoroughly on the brink of madness waiting for some frickin’ answers!
