Lost Bosses Eat Humble Pie
Fans of the cult series flooded the internet with complaints after a recent flashback scene showed Mader's character Charlotte Staples Lewis in the 1970s - because a previous show had listed her date of birth as 1979.
According to the National Enquirer, Lost bosses Carlton Cruse and Damon Lindelof recorded a podcast shortly afterwards, in which they blamed Mader for the mistake.
The enraged actress struck back with a posting on her Facebook page, which allegedly read, "I just wanted to say that I NEVER changed my age on the set of LOST as Damon and Carlton accused me of on the most recent LOST podcast.
"Charlotte Lewis was ALWAYS meant to be 28 and born in 1979.
"They made a mistake. They are making it MY fault. NOT COOL."
Castmates feared the 29-year-old old Brit's outburst would jeopardise her job, but instead it forced an apology from Cruse and Lindelof.
They have now issued a statement that reads, "Rebecca is absolutely right and we apologize to both her and the entire fan community for screwing up the story. The mistake was Ours. Our first mistake was the timeline gaffe, but the much more significant one was wrapping Rebecca up in this when she had nothing to do with it. Not her fault on any level. It was our bad. One hundred percent."
