In 2004, a new TV series took the world by storm. Lost was like nothing we had ever seen, combining Gilligan’s Island with the best of The Twilight Zone, all within Damon Lindelof and J.J Abrams’ crazy mystery box. The show, which follows the survivors of a plane crash on island adventures, won the Emmy for Best Drama Series in 2005.
Fans of Lost, or “Losties” remember the show fondly over 10 years after it has ended. Even though there were some rough patches – we all would like to forget about Jack’s tattoos – the series as a whole was groundbreaking. Filled with complex characters, high stakes, and a death count unparalleled at the time, Lost kept us watching until the very end.
One of the greatest strengths of the six season long series was its diverse ensemble cast. The friendships made and enemies created were continually put to bat in the pressure cooker that was the Island. Through dozens of flashbacks, the audience grew to know these characters and, through intense online debating, the theories concerning their fates.
Though the fates of the characters have long-been decided, the fates of the actors that played them are uncertain. They have taken on other roles, some in movies and TV shows we love. As many unanswered questions as there were from that series finale, we have one in particular on our minds: The Cast of Lost. Where Are They Now?
What do you do when a love-triangle gets stale? Throw in another character to spice it up! On Lost, Juliet was that added spice, changing the dynamic between Jack, Sawyer, and Kate forever. Elizabeth Mitchell played the nurse with impressive ferocity, and was a standout in later seasons of the show.
Mitchell has had one of the greatest post-LOST careers of any members of the cast. Before the series, she appeared in films, most notably The Santa Clause alongside Tim Allen, but her recent career is mostly in television. She starred in the remake of the miniseries V, and when that was done, she appeared on the Abrams’ produced Revolution. Later, she had a recurring role as The Snow Queen on Once Upon a Time. She is making her return to film this year in the upcoming Purge: Election Year.
This woman knows what she’s doing! <3
