'Lost's' Dead Man Talking
April 7, 2005

The rumors were finally laid to rest Wednesday night on "Lost," as Boone Carlisle, the first main character to become a casualty, was killed off in an episode fans will surely be talking about for weeks to come. We caught up with Boone's real-life alter-ego, Ian Somerhalder, on the set of "Good Morning America," where he said he's still feeling the sting of leaving one of TV's most popular shows.

"In a very strange metaphorical sense, it happens to everyone," Somerhalder said. "After a second, it kind of goes away and you realize all the good things that come out of it, if there are any."

Ian revealed that producers told him of his impending death a few weeks ago. And it seems that he may not be the only one leaving the ABC hit show.

"That wasn't a call they wanted to make, but they're great," Somerhalder insisted. "I just think they're going to be making a lot more of those phone calls."

While Somerhalder hinted of more impending castaway peril, the question on fans' minds remains: was the crash that took his life really an accident?

"It was purely an accident," Ian told us. "If you want to call it murder by accident then I guess that kind of works."

You can catch the men of "Lost," in this week's Entertainment Weekly.
