LOST Media Mentions - DarkUFO

Thanks to http://tv-shows.ru/ for the heads up.

HENRY IAN CUSICK is a little bit lost now that Lost has ended. The 43-year-old Scots star was just another jobbing actor before he landed the part of Desmond Hume in series two of the show.

The series made him one of Scotland's biggest telly stars, rich and an Emmy nominee.

But what now for the likeable actor? He won't leave Hawaii, where the show was made, because his three children are at school there.
And although he's got a two episode guest role in Law & Order SVU, he's not wanting to jump into something too big or too long which won't compare to the fun and adventure he had in one of the most talked about shows of the past decade.

He said: "I've learned that this experience is a one-off, and it won't happen again.

"I'm sad to see it end because it's been such a beautiful experience. I feel like I'm part of television history."

Lost began on September 2, 2004 (in the UK it debuted in August 2005) with the most expensive opening episode in television history. Its two-part episode cost an estimated $12million, compared to the usual budget of an hour-long American telly pilot of $4million.

The stunning aeroplane crash on a mysterious desert island immediately had people hooked as each series gave us further twists and turns with time-travelling and even a storyline involving the passengers if the plane hadn't crashed.

Well-loved and confusing, leaving as many questions as it answered, Henry's Desmond was one of the key characters of the series which managed 121 episodes and also starred Matthew Fox (Jack), Evangeline Lilly (Kate), Josh Holloway (Sawyer), Jorge Garcia (Hurley), Naveen Andrews (Sayid) and Terry O'Quinn (John Locke).

At first, Desmond was an enigma, frantically pressing numbers into a computer to stop something happening on the island and, by the end, he nearly did destroy the island that had become home to the crash survivors of Oceanic Flight 815.

Now the all-encompassing job that has been part of him for the past five years has finished, it's little wonder Henry is taking stock.
"I miss it greatly," the actor admitted with a huge sigh. "And I was very nervous when it finished because I didn't know what was going to happen.

"All of the cast members miss the show but that's the way it is. That's life.

"We all knew it was going to come to an end and we knew this for quite a while, so we all started to look forward to the next challenge in our lives.

"Lost was the longest job I've ever had and I'm certainly in a better position than I was five years ago before my Lost experience started.

"You never know what's around the corner - and you never know if it's going to be good or bad."
Henry never imagined he'd end up in a programme that will be long remembered. Born in Peru to a Peruvian mum and Scottish father, Henry moved to Paisley at the age of 15 and became an actor starting his professional life at Glasgow's famous Citizens Theatre.
