Scotland's Daily Record interviews Henry Ian Cusick

Henry Ian Cusick and Dominic MonaghanThe Daily Record, a Scottish newspaper, recently ran a feature interview with Scottish actor Henry Ian Cusick, who plays Desmond Hume on Lost. A shorter interview with Lost's Dominic Monaghan was included as well. Cusick mainly discussed his adjustments to living in Hawaii, but also shed light on how he came to have a bigger role in the ABC drama. Among the highlights:

  • Cusick has a made a permanent move to Hawaii with wife Annie Wood and their three sons.
  • His partying ways got him expelled from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama.
  • The role of Desmond was intended to last only three episodes, but Cusick's popularity among fans turned the guest-starring role into a leading one.

Dominic Monaghan's interview contained the following personal and professional details:

  • The actor considers himself a bit of a metrosexual, as well as an environmentalist (he owns forested property in India).
  • As usual, Monaghan stays silent on his relationship with (and rumored engagement to) co-star Evangeline Lilly.
  • He likes to call the hooded, less moral side of character Charlie Pace "the dark Jedi."

Season Three of Lost began airing on the UK's Sky One channel on Sunday, February 18.

Desmond's character is why the show has become so annoying, characters that are only supposed to be in the show for short times are being left in and making the story go along even slower. Ben is another one of those.

If I hear the statement "popularity among fans" one more time in reference to keeping characters on Lost I will buy a ticket to Hawaii and kill the producers and writers myself.

People like to discuss everything on this show, people will talk about any character that appears in length it's the nature of the show and it's viewers to do so.

Last episode was good but at the end I just felt like we hadn't got anywhere, we have yet another character and more flashbacks it's getting way out of hand.

So if Desmond wasn't supposed to be in it any longer then what is all this predicting the future stuff and "Final Destination" style storyline. Was this ever meant to be in the show? More and more I feel like they are taking the most boring of spiritual and supernatural story lines and tacking them together in one big mess.

Two words, "Train Wreck".

I didn't know that 'Desmond' was only supposed to be on Lost for three episodes. I'm glad that he stayed for longer. He is so cute!

ChadN: maybe he meant the continental united states, where people are probably more obsessed with TV.
It's funny when American's point out geographical errors when the american ppl have been proven to be the MOST ignorant about world geography!

I particularly enjoyed the following snippet from the article:

"One of the reasons - as well as filming schedules - that many of the cast have moved to Hawaii is to be out of the glare of publicity.

In America, where the third series of Lost was watched by 21 million people, they are mobbed wherever they go."

Apparently the author (and his editors) aren't aware that Hawaii is part of America...
