Mira Furlan asked to be written out

Posted by DarkUFO

Thanks to Josh for the following.Also, there is an interview with Mira Furlan's husband from a Croatian magazine which states that Mira Furlan asked to be written out of the show because she didn't like constantly being in Hawaii. Her husband also states that she might be back for the next season.

"Why did your wife stopped shooting ''Lost?''?

She got bored of Hawaii. She got ''island fever'' - that's how cast of Lost calls it in joke.
Simply, she didn't want to be on that island, she didn't want to work that job, so she made a deal with the producers to kill her character off.How did they kill her off?

Shot her. But, her character is pretty popular with fans of the series, so they leaved possibility for comeback next season."

well, this helps to make sense of why they would keep 'dead naomi' around for several episodes (stench and bloating and all) and only a mediocre 'prop' dead body for danielle.

i understand the 'island fever'. i was in hawai'i a few summers ago and it Oahu is a very small island. they are all very small islands. it is a beautiful place, but to quote peggy lee, you do begin to wonder 'is that all there is?".

want to go to a nice island(s)? choose New Zealand.

The fun thing about the AICN talkbacks is that people who love this show are so suspicious and distructful of it. You can shoot Danielle and show the exit wound and they don't believe she's dead. The creators can state "She was shot. With a gun. And you will know if she is alive or dead for sure" and they still don't believe that she's dead. You can show her dead dirty face in the ground and they don't believe she's dead. And I'll bet you could tell them that the actress asked to have her character killed off so she could leave the state, and a least a few of them STILL won't believe she's dead.

But tell them she teleported to an alternate timeline, was converted to nanobots and is in the coffin, and someone would believe that. Or at least want to.

well, they did say that Christian was definitely dead. dead, dead, dead, but he keeps coming back... and then most recently they said he was 'undead'. is that anything like being only MOSTLY dead?

and my thoughts about danielle's death mostly come from the fact i really like her character and thought she would deserve a more poignant death. hopefully she will be back for a visit or two, i mean, everyone else seems to come back...
