Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I do think there's a spiritual element in the world, yes. Have I experienced a ghost firsthand, per se? No. I guess I've experienced feelings or some kind of a presence. But I certainly haven't seen any kind of transparent entity running around. See more »

Trivia:

Has appeared on Lost (2004), playing the mother of the character "Ben Linus". Ben is played by Preston's real-life husband, Michael Emerson; the age difference is explicable because Ben's mother died shortly after giving birth to him. See more »
