Rebecca Mader Confirms Death Of Charlotte

Menang CemeFor those of you who still felt there was hope for Charlotte, in a recent interview Rebecca Mader confirmed she had known about her death since June 08 before they began filming for Season 5.

I know some of you did not really like her character, but I think she was great and to lose her with so many more questions about who, how, what and why makes it worse.

Here is Mader’s interview with LA Times and she like previous cast members said there is a chance for a return in Season 6.

How did the producers break it to you that Charlotte was going to die?

I’ve known since June of ’08, because that’s when we negotiate contracts between seasons. Originally when I started on the show in August 2007, I was only supposed to do eight episodes. I ended up doing 20. I was on the show a lot longer than I thought I was going to be. A lot of it has to do with the writers strike. Less episodes in Season 4 meant back stories were compromised for the new people. I think that’s why my character carried into Season 5.

And how did you take it?

I was disappointed when I found out. When I got to the end of Season 4 and found out Charlotte had been born on the island, that was huge. So when I found out I was leaving, I was disappointed. Like all things, it’s for the best.

How much did they tell you about Charlotte initially?

When I first got the job, I was told nothing about my character. She’s an anthropologist and she’s tough; she’s a female Indiana Jones. That’s what I went into the show knowing. That’s all I knew all of Season 4, until the very end, when I learned I was originally from the island. I was on a break reading my script, and I said, “Bloody hell!”

It seems like the actors spend a lot of time just walking across the island. True?

[Lots of laughter] Traipsing. It’s a lot of traipsing. You have to do it a lot of times. First you walk up the hill, then you go down the hill, then you go back up the hill. By the end of the day, you don’t want to be on the hill anymore.

So many people who “die” on the show keep showing up. What’s your sense of how likely you are to return?

I may end up coming back in Season 6. Some people say, “You’ll be back!” If I’m not, never mind. If they turn around and ask me to come back, I’d be happy to do it.

Fans spend so much time obsessing over the clues on this show. How much time do the actors who make the show spend thinking over the creation of those clues?

[Laughter] I have to be careful how I answer this. I think they’re more concerned by what’s for lunch.

Watch With Kristin

Bandar Ceme OnlineI’ve not had a chance to listed to this so no idea if there are any spoilers.

Happy Valentine’s Day, Lost and True Blood fans!

To celebrate, we’re spending a little heart-to-heart time with a couple you might not even know are married in real life: Michael Emerson (Benjamin Linus on Lost) and Carrie Preston (redheaded waitress and serial killer bride Arlene on True Blood). They had me over to their brand-new L.A. house for chocolate and cookies and scoop…my three favorite things!

Plus, because it’s the day of love, I’m bringing you scoop on the rest of your favorite TV couples, including Gossip Girl, Chuck, How I Met Your Mother, Fringe, The Office and Brothers & Sisters.

Also, we need to clear something up! When I called Lost’s Benjamin Linus a “conniving son of a Michael Emerson’s wife in real life” in the most recent Lost Redux, I was not trying to call his lovely wife Carrie Preston any sort of bad name. Carrie actually played Ben’s mother on Lost, see, so that’s what this crazy, hormone-riddled noggin’ was trying to say.

In fact, you should know, Carrie and Michael are just about the sweetest people you could meetΓÇöand he is decidedly nothing like Ben/Henry in real life! Not only did he and Carrie send me a sweet baby gift after the interview (seriously, who does that?), I just spotted him yesterday walking toward his house with a pretty bouquet of flowers.

And you ladies thought Jack and Sawyer were Lost’s greatest catches. Pshaw.
