Fox Is 'Thrilled' Lost Is Over
LOST star MATTHEW FOX is "thrilled" the show is finally coming to an end - because he's tired of playing the same character.
The filming for the sixth and final series of Lost wrapped last year (09), and Fox now plans to take up to six months off work to spend quality time with his family.
And he insists he can't wait to put his role as Dr. Jack Shepherd behind him.
He tells the Britain's Live magazine, "I want a new life - I am thrilled Lost is finally over. I've spent five years as Dr. Jack Shepherd. It's been a crazy experience but I want more. I want to do films, I want to do theatre, I want to be different people. It's made my name and made me famous all over the world. I've won awards for it and it's possibly the best TV series that has ever been made, but nothing beats leaping back into the unknown. Filming the very last show was a mix of sadness and pure exhilaration for me."
The final season of Lost hits TV screens in the U.S. on Tuesday (02Feb10).
