Scotland's Daily Record interviews Henry Ian Cusick
The 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.
