Lost creators and cast discuss series' final season in Hawaii

Lost_Hawaii_series_season_cast_creators_TVSeveral hundred fans of the hit ABC TV series Lost gathered in a Waikiki theater on Saturday evening to learn, well, absolutely nothing about the sixth and final season of the mystery drama, currently filming on Oahu.

Not that there was any surprise in that.

The guests of honor at the Hawaii International Film Festival-sponsored “Evening with Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse” are well known by the show’s rabid worldwide fan base for being unflinchingly protective of Lost secrets. Officially, Lindelof and Cuse are the series’ co-creators, longtime showrunners and deciders of Lost past, present and future plot lines. But the duo have also grown as popular with fans as the series' cast thanks to their humorous, crafty storyline-summarizing appearances on countless Lost episode recap shows and five seasons of DVD box set extras.

Joined by cast members Jorge Garcia, Terry O’Quinn, Yunjin Kim and Michael Emerson, as well as producer/director Jack Bender and co-executive producer Jean Higgins, the duo were at their cagey, entertaining best at the 90-minute Q&A session/awards program at the Royal Hawaiian Theater.

The evening program capped a full day of HIFF Lost master class seminars for fans, led by Bender, Higgins and select members of the series production staff. Taken as a whole, however, the night was hit and miss.

After a couple of HIFF honors were handed out—a “Vision in Film Award for Lindelof and Cuse, an inaugural “Mahalo Nui Loa Award” for Bender and Higgins—emcee Brian Lowry, chief television critic for entertainment trade journal Variety, began peppering the guests of honor with questions on series minutiae.
