Lost Cast: Where Are They Now?


In 2004, the mysterious drama Lost crash-landed onto the airwaves and kept audiences confused and intrigued for six seasons. The ABC show was filled with clues about the plane crash survivors, glimpses into their old lives and their attempts at surviving on a deserted island with The Others wreaking havoc.

But the best part of the show, aside from piecing together clues and the gorgeous Hawaii scenery that served as the island’s backdrop, was the captivating ensemble cast. The episodes were filled with some favorites like Matthew Fox, who had been on Party of Five, and Dominic Monaghan, who was a hobbit in the Lord of the Rings films. But the show gave big breaks to stars like Josh Holloway and Ian Somerhalder. If you’re feeling nostalgic and want to re-watch, all six seasons are available to stream on Hulu. What has the cast been up to since we found out what actually happened to the passengers of Oceanic Flight 815 in 2010? Read on to find out.
