Fox Plans No More Tv After Lost

MATTHEW FOX has no plans to return to the small screen after he finishes filming hit TV show LOST - because making movies allows him to spend more time with his family.
Fox and wife Margherita have two children - 12 year old daughter Kyle and eight year old son Byron.
The filming for the sixth and final series of Lost begins later this year (09), and Fox plans to take up to six months off work afterwards to spend quality time with his family.
The star also insists when he returns to acting he will reduce his hectic schedule by only shooting one or two movies a year.
He says, "I am not going to do television again. That is not because I think film is better than television. Not at all, in some respects some of the best story telling is happening on television.
"I have done two TV shows - Lost and Party of Five - that have each run for six years. When you add it all up it is in the vicinity of 300 hours of television. I want to find a way to have more control over when I am working and when I'm not. I'm looking for more flexibility."
Fox also admits he fears he will regret the amount of time he spends working: "I am 42 and a father of two children and I don't want to miss them growing up. I don't want to find myself 10 years from now feeling like I was an absentee father because I was so focused on my career."
