Trivia and Quotes

  • Quotes

    • Jeremy Davies: The creators of Lost are endowed with some seriously certified, god-size talent. For a misfit like me, an offer to make coffee for those gentlemen is one I'd find terribly difficult to pass up.

    • Jeremy: I'm kind of an agent's nightmare, because I've basically been hijacking my skinny acting career for years to turn it into film school.

    • Jeremy: I never expected that a misfit like me could get very far in this business. You know how competitive it is. It's almost like winning the interplanetary lottery to get anywhere within.

    • Jeremy: I have many strange pockets that are filled from my own life, different shades of dark and light, different colors. Rather than define a role completely, I like to make a selection and be aware of who I've been and how that goes into the character's perhaps twisted behavior.

    • Jeremy: If I have a page of dialogue, with ten lines on it, to arrive on the set thinking that's all I should offer, that would make me feel like I was insulting the director. I like to have so much more underneath. Each line I say is the consideration of a heartbeat.

    • Jeremy: (About his upbringing) I'm from America. I grew up mostly in isolation and had a really peripatetic youth. There 're many pockets of America that have echoes for me. But beyond stating that, which is fairly dull, I don't really want to get into my family.

  • One of the best actors in LOST. He play the role of a genius physician very well.

    One of the best actors in LOST. He play the role of a genius physician very well. Even though, scientific subjects in lost are extremely "crazy" with travel in time and such... He succeed to talk about these things in a manner that make them a little bit "acceptable". I mean here the manner of acting and not the content it self.

    Definitely a nice and "necessary" actor. Imagine Lost without a genius scientist that try to explain things a little bit. Personally, I think that even his appearance and voice are very adequate for his role. Great actor and one of the bests!moreless
