A plane crashes on a seemingly deserted island in the middle of the ocean. Several people are injured or die when the plane splits in half, landing on the beach; half of the plane lands on one side of the island, and half of the plane lands on the other. The two sides struggle to survive being completely cut off and completely Lost. The series slowly reveals that each and every person on the islands has a terrible secret. All of them will soon find that the island itself has a few secrets of its own…
The massively successful ABC show Lost ran for six years between 2004 and 2010. The action fantasy show, created by J.J. Abrams, Jeffrey Lieber, and Damon Lindelof, was only originally written to be only about two or three seasons. However, the show was such a hit that it was extended far beyond its original storyline. It hooked fans by making everyone who watched ask a lot of questions, and only peppering in the occasional answer. What was on the island? What happened to the rest of the plane? Who would die first? Who would die next?
The show also left a hole in ABC’s lineup when it finally concluded in 2010. We fell in love with the all characters, and we surely hated some, too. That has left us with a new question: now that Lost has been off of the air for about six years, where are all of its stars now?
15. Naveen Andrews – Sayid Jarrah
Sayid Jarrah was played by the very talented Indian actor Naveen Andrews. Although he was born in London, both parents were first generation immigrants to the UK. Since Lost, Andrews has been busy. Andrews appeared in the Netflix original series Sense8, a show about eight people who come to realize that, despite huge distances between them, they can share feelings, knowledge, and thoughts. The star has also lent his voice to the video game Far Cry 4 and had a role in the Once Upon a Time spinoff called Once Upon a Time in Neverland. The second season for Sense8 has been ordered by Netflix, and Naveen and the crew will start filming in 2017.
14. Matthew Fox – Jack Shephard
Part of Five star Matthew Fox played Jack Shephard, the doctor with a dark past. After his Lost days were over, Fox played a bit part in World War Z. He was also the villain in the box office flop Alex Cross. In 2015, Fox appeared in the sci-fi horror movie Extinction and a western Bone Tomahawk alongside Kurt Russell. In a 2015 interview about the movie, Fox gushed about working with Hollywood legend Russell and how riding horses and playing cowboy reminded him on growing up on a ranch in Wyoming. Matthew Fox hasn’t appeared in any movies recently, and looks like he has no plans to. The actor is still married to his long time wife Margherita; they have a daughter and a son together.
13. Jorge Garcia – Hugo ‘Hurley’ Reyes
Hurley actor Jorge Garcia has stayed close to TV ever since his time on Lost ended. The star has made a few movies including Get a Job and The Ordained, but most of his work remains on the small screen. The star has been on the 2014 version of Hawaii Five-O and showed up for a few episodes as a villain on Once Upon a Time. He has several movies coming out in 2016, including the heartwarming drama When We Were Pirates and feel-good family comedy The Healer. According to twitter, the actor is still vegan after many years; he originally made the switch to an animal-free diet to help lose weight, but he keeps to it in an effort to remain as healthy as possible.
12. Josh Holloway – James ‘Sawyer’ Ford
Josh Holloway has been incredibly busy since Lost ended. The Sawyer actor has been seen starring in the short lived action sci-fi show Intelligence. After that show was cancelled after just one seasons, Holloway began work on Colony, a thriller for the USA network. The Lost star has been in a few movies since his days on the beach; Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol was the most notable. Apparently, Josh Holloway likes to make up meanings for the final episode of Lost for fans. He told Jimmy Kimmel on air that he makes up different endings depending on his mood. So no one really knows what the ending of Lost meant!?
11. Daniel Dae Kim – Jin Kwon
2016 is a good year for Daniel Dae Kim; he’s made his Broadway debut in The King and I. Kim plays the role of the King of Siam alongside Kelli O’Hara. The South Korean actor has also been seen on the small screen alongside former Lost co-star Jorge Garcia in Hawaii Five-O. Kim is also in the second and third movies of the Divergent trilogy as Jack Kang, the head of the faction of honesty, Candor. Although Kim is a great on-screen actor, he says he prefers the stage, mostly because there is a connection between himself and the audience and more instantaneous feedback from the crowd.
10. Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje – Mr. Eko
Nigerian-born actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje was raised in England by white foster parents. The actor says he was raised to be afraid of black people in a very racist part of England, and he fell in with a group of skinheads in a desperate attempt to fit in. The former Lost actor is developing a movie about his time in England as a child, and how he surroundings influenced who he is today. Since being in Lost, the actor has been busy, appearing in the 2009 G.I. Joe movie, the second Thor movie, and the up and coming Suicide Squad. Agdeje hasn’t left TV completely behind; he has also had roles in American Odyssey and Major Lazer. He was even in two episode of the Game of Thrones.
9. Evangeline Lilly – Kate Austen
Evangeline Lilly has had quite the career since 2010! The beautiful star played Kate Austen in the Lost and has been busy in Hollywood ever since. Evangeline was the gorgeously deadly elf warrior Tauriel in The Hobbit movies and Hope in the Ant-Man movies. Lucky for us too! The actress was looking to retire after her stint on Lost to focus on other projects, but Peter Jackson convinced her to take a role in his new LOTR movies. The new mom doesn’t seem to be looking outside of her contracts with Marvel for new movies, but hopefully there will be a ton more Ant-Man or the Wasp movies for us to watch!
8. Elizabeth Mitchell – Juliet Burke
Juliet Burke actress Elizabeth Mitchell has been in quite a few TV shows since her stint as Sawyer’s girlfriend on Lost. Mitchell has appeared on Once Upon a Time, like many former Lost stars (it’s like a lost reunion, isn’t ABC?). She is currently shooting for the TV show called Dead of Summer’s crew in Vancouver as of March 2016. The series is a horror show based around a summer camp. The star has appeared in the sci-fi thriller V, a few episodes of Law and Order: SVU, the post-power America drama Revolution, and the crime show Crossing Lines.
7. Emilie de Ravin – Claire Littleton
Of all the former Lost stars, Claire Littleton has the most exciting news for 2016! Emilie de Ravin just recently had a baby with her boyfriend Eric Bilitch on March 12, 2016. The two have been together since Ravin filed for divorce from her longtime hubby in 2014. Since Lost, she has also been in a few movies, including the 2012 romcom Love and Other Troubles, the 2015 romantic drama The Submarine Kid, and the depressing Remember Me alongside Robert Pattinson. Of course, the actress is also in Once Upon a Time as Belle, the pretty bookworm from Beauty and the Beast.
6. Michael Emerson – Ben Linus
Michael Emerson has been working on Person of Interest since his role as Ben Linus ended. He’s also done some voices for the Joker in a few Batman cartoons, but his main work has been as the paranoid computer genius Harold Finch. It was announced in March 2016 that Person of Interest was cancelled after five seasons, so Emerson is currently at loose ends. Without any Hollywood projects lined up, perhaps he can get back to his first love: the stage! Since he has been focusing on his TV career for the last few years, the stage actor hasn’t spent much time in the theatre.
5. Tania Raymonde – Alex Rousseau
Gorgeous French actress Tania Raymonde played Alex Rousseau on Lost. The actress has appeared in a ton of films and TV shows since then; she was in a single episode of Hawaii Five-O with her former Lost co-stars. In 2011, she played Officer Carla Rinaldi in Death Valley, appeared in a few episodes of the new 90210, and the ABC Family drama hit Switched at Birth. In Texas Chainsaw 3D, Tania played Nikki. More recently, she is in Trial and the action sci-fi show The Last Ship. Look for her two upcoming projects in 2016: the crime action film Dirty Lies and the drama Manson Girls.
4. Dominic Monaghan – Charlie Pace
Ex-Hobbit Dominic Monaghan played Charlie Pace in Lost. Dominic is letting his nerd flag fly in the video game / TV hybrid series Quantum Break. He’s also been in the TV series 100 Code, the 2015 Molly Moon movie, and even the Love the Way You Lie music video for Rihanna and Eminem. The star recently made the news when a deranged stalker, who had been harassing the star since 2014, allegedly threatened to kill him. The LOTRs star filed a restraining order, which the crazed fan soon broke. She has a warrant out for her arrest and as of March 27, 2016, hasn’t been caught yet. Hopefully, the star doesn’t lose any sleep over it and they catch the crazy woman ASAP.
3. Harold Perrineau – Michael Dawson
Now that Harold Perrineau is no longer chasing his kid all over a deserted island, the actor has moved on to bigger and better things. He has six movies set to come out in the next couple of years, including the drama When We Were Pirates alongside his former Lost star Jorge Garcia. Are all of the former Lost stars all buddies that just love to work with one another? He was also in the TV Series Constantine which was based on the comic books. Harold played Manny, the angel that sort of helps out. In 2015, the star sold his gorgeous $2 million dollar Spanish villa in west Hollywood. And what a beautiful house it is!
2. Michelle Rodriguez – Ana Lucia Cortez
Hispanic beauty Michelle Rodriguez has been racing a lot of cars since her days on Lost. Since 2010, the actress has starred in several Fast and Furious titles, reliving her 2001 role as Letty. She’s even in the newest in the franchise, Furious 8, which is due in theatres in 2017. She appeared in the blockbuster hit Avatar. Michelle has lent her voice to several video games since 2010 as well, including Call of Duty and Resident Evil. Look for her in the crime movie Tomboy, a Revenger’s Tale in 2017 and the family drama about bullying Milton’s Secret in 2016.
1. Ian Somerhalder – Boone Carlyle
Smoldering hot Ian Somerhalder might have been the first to die on Lost, but the sexy star’s career is still alive and kicking! Ian has been in the smash hit the Vampire Diaries as the sexy, yet distant, Damon Salvatore. The actor has also been in three movies since his role as Boone on Lost: the crime sci-fi thrillerThe Anomaly, the crime musical Caught on Tape, and the box office flop comedy How to Make Love to a Woman. The current vamp says that the Vampire Diaries will end after season eight, and we can’t wait to see what the Hollywood hunk does next!
