__ Waikiki, Hawai'i
Aloha,
My name is Paul Edney. I am just one of the background actors in the ABC TV series "Lost". I put up this website and it is dedicated to the background actors and actresses who play the roles of survivors of the plane crash in the show.

Many mahalos (thanks in Hawaiian) to Julie Carlson, the Casting Director who cast me in this exciting Emmy award-winning series (see her picture below in the Extras group shot, #16). Also, to Anna Fishburn , the Casting Director who continued to cast me in the first series.

The TV pilot (Part 1 of 2) premiered on Wednesday September 22nd 2004 nationwide in the U.S.A.

This website was started by me on July 27 2004 and will be updated regularly, depending on my available spare time. As you can see from my Resume, I have been working on a lot of Movies and TV Shows lately.
This website is not affiliated with ABC TV. All photos & videos are the property of their respective owners.

UPDATE: May 2006, I had the pleasure of working again with J J Abrams in California, right before he won his much deserved Emmy for "Lost". J J is the Director of "Mission Impossible III" and I play the part of an armed IMF Agent (see photo). (Grateful thanks to Jennifer at Central Casting for hiring me for the part). You can clearly see me about half way through "Mission Impossible III" as myself and another IMF agent escort a chained prisoner (Philip Seymour Hoffman) down the steps of a military airplane into a waiting paddy wagon surrounded by FBI agents. Tom Cruise is right behind me. The scene was shot at Ontario Airport in Southern California in August 2005. It sure is fun being an actor and working with professionals.

But this website is not just about me. This website is for all of us, especially for all of the other background actors and actresses who appeared in the pilot and the series episodes. Currently, the second series is in production on the island of O'ahu in Hawai'i. We are all very excited about the show and there is plenty of enthusiasm on the set.

All of those who have worked as background actors on "Lost" can have their own webpage where they can post their own photos and resumés. Many of the background actors have their own photos taken on the set. I will only put up photos of the extras which show a minimal amount of the set in the background, as copyright may be involved (see Confidentiality Agreement).

The people of Hawaii saw a screening of the pilot on August 28th 2004 on Waikiki Beach. It was well received. The first part of the pilot was shown nationwide on TV on Wednesday September 22nd 2004. "Lost" was number 1 in the ratings.

CONFIDENTIALITY AGREEMENT
Because the series is still being filmed, myself and other background actors are bound by a Confidentiality Agreement. This means that we cannot publish any photos of the stars taken on the sets. Nor photos showing entire sets. Nor can we divulge any details of the script, etc. This website intends to live up to this agreement. So please do not ask us to provide photos or details that would violate this agreement.

THE PLOT:
Without giving too much away, here is a general outline of the show.
Oceanic Airlines Logo. . Oceanic Airlines flight 815, a Boeing 777 airplane (actually an L10-11 jet airplane, see next paragraph) takes off from Sydney, Australia with passengers and crew on board. The final destination is Los Angeles, California. However, en route, the plane crashes on a supposedly deserted tropical island, somewhere near Fiji. The plane splits into two parts, with the cockpit and the front part landing in a jungle setting and the main fuselage on a tropical beach close to the water's edge. Many of the passengers and crew survive the crash. There are 48 survivors. However, the island turns out to be very mysterious and very strange things start happening to the survivors. A lot of the episodes will center on flashbacks of the survivors' previous lives.

THE AIRPLANE:
The airplane was a surplus L10-11 that used to be flown by Delta Air Lines. Extras, including myself, discovered Delta Air Lines markings on several pieces of the wreckage. I found one marking on the interior of the main passenger door. This TV pilot is the most expensive one ever produced, mainly due to the cost of the plane and shipping it in pieces from California to Hawai'i. Then by road from Honolulu harbor to Mokule'ia Beach. There it was further demolished under the directions of Rick Romer, the Set Director (Rick was also the Set Director for "Fantasy Island", "Magnum P.I.", "Baywatch" etc.), and wreckage was scattered around the beach. The set was designed using photographs of actual plane crashes as a guide, so as to be as realistic as possible. A giant hinge was installed in one of the plane's wings, so it could collapse on cue creating a great special effect. Once the pilot was finished, the plane and wreckage were removed from the beach and stored at the side of Dillingham Airfield. When the series was ready to shoot, the plane and the wreckage were put back on the beach, but in a slightly different location, further down the beach away from Dillingham Airfield. The planes taking off with a glider in tow and the landings created many annoying interruptions during the shooting of the pilot. There were fewer interruptions by these planes during the shooting of the first series.

Delta Air Lines L10-11

OOPS ! An email received by "Lost" fan James Kunke of Texas, explains that the scenes showing the interior of the plane (all shot in Hollywood) do not match that of an actual L10-11 interior. James says there are too many galleys, not enough seats in Business Class, etc. Another fan says the interior is that of a Boeing 777 which matches the script, but not the exterior of the plane which is an L10-11.


SET LOCATION:Photo © Ace Caballero 2004

Almost the entire pilot and series will be shot in Hawai'i. The exterior scenes are being shot on locations around the island of O'ahu. The plane crash site (where the beach meets the road, at left) was filmed at Mokule'ia Beach, as described in the KITV Channel 4 news clip (see below under Video Clips). This is one of Oahu's remotest beaches and is next to the Dillingham Airfield (middle right) which mostly serves glider flight traffic.

The production company has a studio in a converted warehouse (the old Xerox building) in the city of Honolulu. This is where some of the interior shots will be filmed. Diamond Head Studio is also being used for interior shots for the second series. The only scene that we know of that was shot in Hollywood, California was the interior of the airplane before the crash.

Mahalo to hiker Ace Caballero of the U.S. Army who submitted this photo of the crash site, taken from the mountain top behind it.
