Matthew Fox Was Not Set to Be a «Lost» Regular
February 09, 2010
The 43-year-old actor reveals he wasn't supposed to play in 'Lost' regularly since his character was intended to be killed in the second episode but then canceled due to various demand. Matthew Fox was never intended to be a "Lost" regular - producers of the hit TV show planned to kill off his character in the second episode.
The actor has become a familiar face on TV screens over the last few years, playing Dr. Jack Shephard in six seasons of the mystery drama.
But Fox admits the show's creators originally had very different plans for his character. He says, "Damon Lindelof and J.J. Abrams thought it would be cool to set Jack up as the hero, and then kill him off in the second episode. But various people told them they thought this would be a bad idea."
If Matthew Fox's character in the TV series is killed, it is likely suitable with his plan which he recently revealed. The 43-year-old actor told Us Magazine that he wants to leave small screen, saying "I won't be doing any more television. I've done two six-year shows, about 300 hours of television."
He gushed, "I'm done with that. I'm either going to make movies with filmmakers I want to work with or I'll be doing something else entirely".
