WHAT PROMPTED YOUR RETURN TO TV?
I'm playing a character that's drastically different from [Lost's] Charlie, which would be the only reason why I'd come back to TV.
WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO FLASH-FORWARD TO IN YOUR OWN LIFE?
I'd want to see if I was happy, if my kids were happy and healthy, and that my life was going well.
YOU DIED ON LOST. HOW LONG ARE YOU STICKING AROUND ON THIS SHOW?
For a while. They said I was going to be one of the characters that stuck around to the end of the show...so we'll see!
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT LOST ENDING THIS SEASON?
The fans have been hanging in there for five years, so I think it's worthwhile that they get to see it come to fruition.
