'Lost' Scoop: Mystery Gal's Secret Revealed!

Reikoayelsworth_lReiko Aylesworth shouldn’t have any trouble keeping her trap shut when it comes to the big mystery surrounding her new Lost character, the smart and charismatic Amy. But it’s not the gag order imposed on her by Team Darlton that’s preventing her from telling all. It’s the fact that…well, she can barely straighten out the plot twists herself.

“I know the show, but I have to say, I didn’t quite understand everything [the writers] were telling me,” confesses the actress, best known for her role as 24‘s late CTU director, Michelle Dessler. “But it sounds like it’s going to be great stuff. I’m just excited to do something other than getting people files and carrying clipboards [like on 24].”

One theory making the rounds is that Amy, who’ll be introduced during the show’s fifth season (debuting Wednesday, Jan. 21), will be revealed to be someone from the early days of the Dharma Initiative. (FYI: For those playing along at home, the answer to last week’s Ask Ausiello asterisk quiz is she’s “with Dharma.) That would seem to confirm buzz that Ben (Michael Emerson) transported the island and all of its inhabitants back to the ’70s in last May’s finale.

At least Aylesworth can say with near certainty that Amy’s love life will be complicated. “There’s definitely some conflict with the suitors,” she teases. Wait a second — suitors, as in plural? How literal will the show’s depiction of the ’70s be? “Obviously, we want that to be a surprise,” says executive producer Carlton Cuse. ” Let’s just say her role will be emotional.”

Okay, time to put on your thinking caps, Lost fans. If Aylesworth’s Amy is with Dharma, and my sources confirm that she is, what purpose do you think she’ll serve on the island? What do you think the “surprise” is concerning all the men in her life? And are you as excited as I am to see Aylesworth back on the tube? Comment away!

    Loved her on 24. Can’t wait for Lost to start again.

  • Lizzie

    I cannot wait for Lost!! It’s driving me insane!

  • Thom

    Hell yes I’m anxious to see her. She was the bomb on 24 and I’m glad she’s back. I can’t wait to see her.

  • Raenoli072

    My Hubby And I are big fans from the beginning and Ready to see it NOW!!!

  • Melanie

    I too am excited to see Reiko back on the TV screen. As for her characters role in Lost…well maybe, if the island was transported back to the 70’s, she is the mother of one of our castaways. That’s if the secret has something to do with her love life…which seems to be the assumption.

  • trazey

    meh i hate her but i LOVE Lost :)

  • katie

    She’s gotta be Annie then! Ben’s childhood sweetheart and maybe she had her eyes on Whitmore? It would make sense wouldn’t it?

    After a few passable though forgettable stints in film (see Mr. Brooks, Alien vs. Predator: Requiem), I’m glad to see Reiko back on TV in a memorable role.

  • Allan

    She did much more than clerical work on 24 and really proved herself an excellent actress. Didn’t she die in a radiation poisoning and her husband couldn’t save her?

  • garp

    She must be Annie! Team Darlton said in a commentary track that Annie would play an important part in the story. I think Reiko is a great choice.

  • Melanie

    In 24 Reiko’s character, Michelle, died when her car exploded…her husband was in the second explosion after he ran outside when he heard the first one go off. He woke up at CTU to discover she was dead.

  • Sam

    I hope they don’t make her too emotional. I don’t like Lost when it’s over-emotional with moronic character. Can we have some characters (especially woman) with brains please???

  • Sam

    If they make her a female character spending all her time with suitors and being a moron like Kate, I will scream. Please let’s not get too emotionaI. Anyway, I liked Aylesworth on 24 and it’s great to see her on Lost.

  • Bry

    This is the grown-up version of the girl Ben Linus (as a kid) had a crush on.
    Just a thought. I know it contradicts the “70’s time traveling” shindig, but it definitely works.

  • LostInTranslation

    I have a feeling “Amy” is a casting cover for “Annie.”
