Henry Ian Cusick – Finale Has Biggest Surprise Yet

Hey All,
I am not sure how I missed this one, but last week (April 25th) LOST star Henry Ian Cusick (Desmond) was online and answered several fan questions via the Washington Post.

Not sure how many spoilers there are, but when I skimmed the article I did read him saying that he has read the finale and that it contains the biggest surprise to date.

It is a long Q&A session, but looks like a great read so check it out:

Woodbridge, Va.: First of all – You are awesome brotha! And dead sexy, too, but now for my serious question, which you may not be able to answer. Did you know when you started on “Lost” that your gig was going to last this long and you were going to become such an important character? Or did your role just develop along the way? You’ve certainly come a long way from pushing buttons in the hatch.

Henry Ian Cusick: Thank you. Nope I didn’t have a clue, but delighted the way it turned out!

_______________________

Chicago, Ill.: Firstly, I just want to say that you have done an amazing job with the role of Desmond. The emotions and the hardships he has gone through, and yet the calm acceptance with which he handles all of his obstacles makes him such a strong character which we all can’t wait to see more of!

The “Lost” fan community was (and still is) buzzing about the wonderful performances by yourself and Sonya in “The Constant,” and the uniquely true romance between the characters. With the latest episode’s reveal of Ben’s personal vendetta, what do you think will become of Desmond and Penny?

Henry Ian Cusick: I just read the season finale…and I am totally clueless how next season will pan out.

Matthew Fox Snippet On The Finale

Not a huge amount of detail but just a little bit of hype about the finale. This is just a snippet from a longer interview.

Question: With TV shows usually the way that it works as an actor, it’s an open ended storyline where you’re going forward and just discovering what’s happening as you go. With Lost, obviously that’s all changed not only because of the flash forwards, but because it has an end date now. Does that change the way that you’re approaching your work on the show?

Fox: Not really. Not that much. No. You know we’re going to catch up with the flash forwards here in this year and then we’ll be back and it’s going to be really interesting to see how time is structured in season five. But we will have closed those two points – the finale of last year where you had that juxtaposition of him on the island feeling like he’d finally accomplished rescue and this future where he’s desperate and at the pit of despair and feels like he has to go back and we don’t know why and what’s transpired in between. We will have closed that thing and so we will have gotten back into a situation where we’ll be in the present.

Question: How much gets resolved in the finale?

Fox: Huge, huge stuff. We’re shooting pretty much three episodes that are…it’s really like a three-episode finale that we’re shooting simultaneously. It’s huge.

Question: Are there going to be more questions answered?

Fox: There will be huge things answered. Yes.
