- Jack flashback! This looks to be our long-promised Jack flashback to Thailand, where we learn more about his (Matthew Fox's real life) tattoo on his arm with the funky 5.
- Unlike most of the other Lost Moments, which seem to be from the first episode back, this one is clearly from the third episode back, Episode 9 - which is scheduled to be Jack-centric. (In case you were curious, Episode 7 is supposed to be Juliet-centric, Episode 8 is supposed to Desmond-centric. It's pretty easy to figure out which Lost Moments are from which episode based on that, isn't it?)
- Our first glimpse of Bai Ling, scheduled to guest star on Lost for three episodes this spring. Here's what she said about her stint in a recent interview with Kristin from E... (warning! this is slightly spoilerific - silly guest stars, when will they learn to keep their mouths shut?)
We've got to talk about all things Lost! Work was a joy. Everyone in the production was so generous, humble and kind. I felt like I was very welcomed by them! Mostly, I worked with Matthew Fox. The three episodes I have, it's very deep. My character says, "I can see who people are."
What can you tell us about your relationship with Jack? What exactly are you going to be doing? You never know, I might come back. They say on the show they bring people back even when they're dead. I am a very important character in his life; like, his tattoos have something to do with me.
I know you said he was a great kisser. It was funny, when we were shooting the scene, we didn't know each other. He is very handsome and very kind—very much a gentleman. It's kind of nervous doing those love scenes, but it was really fun, [even though] I was kind of embarrassed. We both had a mutual understanding to just go for it. Sometimes I'm on top of him, sometimes he's on top of me. I asked him, "Can I do what I want?" and he said, "Sure, you can do whatever you want." I didn't want to offend him, but after he said that I went with what I felt.
Can you give us a character name? Achara, a-c-h—I don't know how to spell it. It's a name I had never heard; it was hard for me to pronounce. But, you know, what is funny about my part...she seduces him, and she's really forward, and she behaves the way she wants, which is really beautiful. It's very healthy and honest and very powerful, in a way.
So, what's the backstory? We're lovers, but I am kind of a mystery to him. He doesn't really know me. I don't allow him to visit me, I don't allow him to know what I really do—we're together, we sleep together, we hang out together, we're lovers. And there is a mystery, he never knows what I do. There is also a psychological twist and betrayal.
Are you contracted to do any episodes outside of the three? No, they haven't now, but they are going to see. Hopefully, I come back. I want to, because Lost is a really fun project. I think it is a lot better than the movies I have done. The writing is beautiful, and you really get to know the characters, and not just on the surface, which I really appreciate.
Sounds pretty good to me!
