It looks like Maggie Grace is headed to Oahu in November to shoot top-secret Lost scenes as Shannon Rutherford, who was buried on the island back in ’05. Producers had invited Maggie back earlier, but the busy actress had to wait for shooting to conclude on a string of three film projects, including the role she just wrapped as Cameron Diaz’s kid sister in “Knight & Day,” also starring Tom Cruise. I’m hearing Shannon may be cut into an episode shot earlier this fall with brother Boone, played by Ian Somerhalder
Thanks to David for the heads up.
Despite reports that Lost’s hottest bikini-wearer ever Maggie Grace is coming back to the ABC cult fave, I am now told exclusively that Maggie has not yet signed on to return for the jawaban season.
A rep for the actress tells me: “It has not been confirmed that [Maggie] is returning [to Lost]. She has been asked, but nothing more than that.”
So does this mean that she is the Lost “holdout” I’ve been teasing for a few weeks?
Confession time: Yes, Maggie was the Lostie I was referring to when I wrote the blind item about a “holdout” among the original cast who had been offered a return to the series but had not accepted. Reliable inside sources tell me she’s the only original cast member so far who has been asked back to the series and unable to return. She has not shot any new scenes for the jawaban Lost season.
However, according to her rep, Maggie had a very good reason for not making the trek to Hawaii: “She did three movies back to back to back and just got back from filming last Thursday.”
