LOST star MATTHEW FOX has a new reason to drive carefully – he could lose his
job if caught flouting the highway code.
Four characters on the hit show have been axed after the actors portraying
them were arrested by Hawaii police for unruly driving.
And now Fox, who plays plane crash survivor Jack Shephard, hits the road with
caution – for fear of being fired from the program.
Fox says, “We’ve a running joke on the Lost set that anyone arrested for DUI
(driving under the influence) gets killed off in the show. So I slow down
DUI incidents have plagued the Lost cast in Hawaii – castmates Cynthia Watros
and Michelle Rodriguez both pleaded guilty to driving under the influence in
January 2006 and April 2007 respectively. Daniel Dae Kim, who stars as the
program’s Jin-Soo Kwon, was also arrested on the same charge last year (07).
British actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje was also arrested for driving without a
license and disobeying a police officer. (PAW/WNSNE/JC)
