Evangeline Lilly was one of the last actors to be cast for the show, but the fact that she is a Canadian citizen gave the producers concern that she might not be able to obtain the appropriate U.S. employment visa that would grant her permission to stay in the country long enough to shoot the entire series. They pushed back all of Kate's scenes when they were shooting the pilot, just to be sure that they could get the proper employment visa, a category "O-1" for "aliens of extraordinary ability in arts, science, education, business or athletics" for Lilly. As her body of work as an actor was not extensive at the time she was cast, they had a difficult time proving to the USCIS (formerly known as the INS) that Lilly was deserving of this classification as an "artist of extraordinary ability". It wasn't until they had shot almost every scene without the Kate character that she was finally granted the O-1 visa and signed on. That same day she was put on a plane in Canada and flown directly to Hawaii for the shooting. See more »
During the scenes in the 1970s, all of the spectacle wearing characters have an anti-reflective coating on their lenses (the greenish hued reflection). While these coatings are very common today, in the 1970s they were generally reserved for optical equipment lenses. See more »
There is no denying that "Lost" is the best new drama of the season. It has already been nominated as Best Drama Series for the Golden Globes and it's headed for great things. Creator and Director JJ Abrams brings his amazing talents into this show to help make it the great success that it is. Along with "Desparate Housewives," "Lost" has helped ABC in its comeback for the 2004-2005 season. I have no idea what the previous review was talking about -- this series will not "tank" after a year. And it is like nothing that has been before. Sure there are similarities in plot but there is SO much more to talk about in "Lost." And I am confident in the great writers that they have on the series as well to create new, exciting, energetic, and interesting plot lines for each episode.
