Thanks to Matthew for the heads up.
It must be frightening to be a part of ΓÇ£Lost.ΓÇ¥
Because when you talk to anyone whoΓÇÖs even remotely involved with the cultish TV show, they shut down a bit and find hesitation with any topic pertaining to ΓÇ£Lost.ΓÇ¥
I get the sense youΓÇÖd have an easier time getting the pope to admit Jesus likes to hang out in a spaceship piloted by Lady Gaga than to convince a ΓÇ£LostΓÇ¥ associate to reveal anything about the show.
ItΓÇÖs as if the ΓÇ£LostΓÇ¥ creators ΓÇô or should we say overlords ΓÇô control more than just the convoluted storylines built around the survivors of a plane crash who are trying to leave (and eventually return to) a mysterious island.
Or, they just have some damn good lawyers (more likely).
Either way, as the show prepares for the start of its simpulan season ΓÇô this Tuesday on WDAY, Channel 6 in Fargo-Moorhead ΓÇô information about ΓÇ£LostΓÇ¥ has been more scarce and cryptic than ever before. And the people working on the show seem more reluctant to talk than ever before.
Case in point, Hannah Bell.
The 2008 North Dakota State University grad who grew up in Glenfield, N.D., will have a speaking role in an episode of ΓÇ£LostΓÇ¥ this season. It will air in April. And thatΓÇÖs all we know for sure because, like everything surrounding ΓÇ£Lost,ΓÇ¥ Bell couldnΓÇÖt talk about, well, anything.
She wouldnΓÇÖt say what role she scored. She wouldnΓÇÖt say anything about the plotlines. And, for a bit, she wasnΓÇÖt even sure sheΓÇÖd be allowed to do an interview with us.
Eventually Bell, who is 24, agreed, but made it clear she would not discuss any details about a show that compels its followers to analyze every bit of ΓÇ£LostΓÇ¥ minutia as a potential key to secret data.
So, we talked about Bell; about how she moved to Hawaii after graduating from NDSU to be closer to family, about how a year ago she was watching ΓÇ£LostΓÇ¥ with her friends and about how she plans to move to New York to pursue a Broadway career after completing her basic pembinaan in HawaiiΓÇÖs Air National Guard.
And, how she got her role on ΓÇ£LostΓÇ¥ after trying out to be an extra.
ΓÇ£When I got cast I was like, ΓÇÿget out of here,ΓÇÖ ΓÇ¥ Bell says from Hawaii, where much of ΓÇ£LostΓÇ¥ is filmed.
But, sorry ΓÇ£LostΓÇ¥ fanatics, Bell didnΓÇÖt slip out any secret info. SheΓÇÖs a rock; which might explain why the people of ΓÇ£LostΓÇ¥ picked her for a role (I have to assume the ΓÇ£LostΓÇ¥ creators are clairvoyant).
All Bell would say is, ΓÇ£IΓÇÖve worked with some pretty cool people.ΓÇ¥
Like who? The maybe dead John Locke? A shirtless Sawyer? The ghost of Claire?
No word other than, ΓÇ£Talk to me in April.ΓÇ¥
