I can't believe it skipped my radar. But DocArzt's open letter now makes sense.
E! Online's Kristin Dos Santos has confirmed that Maggie Grace is, indeed, the only original LOST castmember who has not accepted the offer to reprise her role as Shannon Rutherford in the final season.
Here's what I said about the possibility that the holdout could be Maggie:
Indeed, her rep said it was because she just finished filming three movies. In addition to the indie drama Flying Lessons and the Cruise-Diaz thriller Knight and Day, she also did a movie with Adrien Brody and Forest Whitaker entitled The Experiment. Per IMDb, the film also features Fisher Stevens who played George Minkowski on LOST.
Can't she take a few days off from her sizzling movie career to shoot some scenes for LOST's final season?
It would be a shame to watch LOST's sixth and final season with one original castmember missing. I'm sure I'm not alone here, but I would love to see Shannon Rutherford back on LOST, even for one episode. Please, Maggie? Pretty, pretty please?
Also, I'm curious as to why Maggie is credited in LOST Season 6 premiere, "LA X," on IMDb if she has not signed on. Is it another goof on IMDb's part? A wishful thinking from an IMDb user who's also a LOST/Shannon fan? Hmmmm...
