Several characters were reconceived during the casting process. Charlie was originally inspired by Bill Nighy's performance in Love Actually and was supposed to be an over the hill rock star. When Dominic Monaghan auditioned they reworked the role as a younger man. So where was originally conceived of as a slick big city con man, but the producers liked Josh Holloway's audition so much that they reworked the character as a sexy Southerner. Kate was originally supposed to be a 30-something business woman who had lost her husband in the crash. They eventually cast a younger Evangeline Lilly as Kate and decide to portray her as a criminal. See more »
The two Korean characters are married and share the family name "Kwon", and the identical family name becomes an important plot point in the final season. But when Koreans marry the wife never takes her husband's family name. In fact in Korea it is not permissible even to marry someone with the same family name except in rare circumstances. See more »
I've watched lots of TV in my lifetime, perhaps too much. However this is the best TV series i've seen in ages. Probably even the best ever. You just can't predict what is going to happen. Each week the show seems to tell you something new about the Island and its inhabitants. I'm on the edge of my seat waiting to find out what's going to happen, then before I know it the programme is finished and I have to wait to find out what happens next. Utterly gripping! This show is amazing and I hope they continue to make it because often fantastic US shows get cancelled because the ratings start to dip slightly or the executives think the shows are too weird. I really hope the series continues so that we get it over here in England because it is a fantastic show and I would like to have DVD's of this series so I can get all my friends hooked too.
