'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
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."

this week's Entertainment Weekly.
