  • Quotes

    • Rebecca: (about her role on Lost) When I first got the job, I was told nothing about my character. She's an anthropologist and she's tough; she's a female Indiana Jones. That's what I went into the show knowing.

    • Rebecca: (on having too much rainfall in Hawaii) I'm English. That makes me feel at home! When it starts pissing down, I just put the kettle on. I'm like, "Oh, isn't this lovely? I I'll have a cup of tea." Oh, I love it.

    • Rebecca: (on her audition for "Lost") I was not going to leave that room until I made them fall in love with me.

    • Rebecca: In certain photo shoots, it's just not about standing there and trying to look pretty in a dress. A good editorial photo shoot usually has an art director, and there's a story that you're telling.

    • Rebecca: (on coming to Los Angeles) There's something about not being able to make a proper cup of tea outside of England. We all sort of whine about it, but I've come to realize the water and the milk are what change it.

    • Rebecca: Having red hair was the bane of my life -- until I got older, when I realized it was good to be different. But growing up with it was a nightmare. I used to get bullied at school, and people would call me horrible names.

    • Rebecca: (on Kristen Bell turning down the role of Charlotte on "Lost") [Laughs] I was going to do a Kiss-o-Gram or something. [Singing] "Thank you, Kristen... for turning it down."

    • Rebecca: (on doing her character in "Lost") It's hard for me to try to create something in my head because it's so unknown. I've never been in this position before. Usually when I do something, I kind of have this whole thing in my head of who I am and where I've come from. [With Lost] I have it to a point, but this is the least I've ever known as an actress. It's interesting.

    • Rebecca: (on coming on to an established show like "Lost") It's really different than doing a TV show that you're on from the beginning. ... It's also less stressful because it's already fabulous, already a well-oiled machine that's just moving. It's kind of like a roller coaster, you can just jump on and join in. I really like that. It's also already got a built-in audience.

    • Rebecca: (on the effect of the writers' strike on her) Oh, I was gutted. I was having such a good time. I had been out there for a few months so I had gotten to spend some time out there and have a great time. I was really, really disappointed.

    • Rebecca: (on her first day at work on "Lost", right after watching all three seasons) I'm sitting there, and I'd just finished the show, and out comes Locke, Claire, and Hurley and their all walking towards me, on a break, and I'm like (chokes). Oh my god! I'm like, this is not happening. It was such a surreal moment. I'm like "How did I climb inside my Mac laptop?".

    • Rebecca: (on blending in among the cast of "Lost") They were just fantastic, such an amazing group of peeps. They are so welcoming, its like I've been there for ever, they included me and I felt a part of the team very quickly, which was really nice. They totally get my secret sense of humor and I feel free to just sort of be myself.

    • Rebecca: (on playing Charlotte in "Lost") I really hope I get to do some fun stuff and get to discover more about this character because it is the most interesting thing I've ever done, to play someone so ambiguous in such an ambiguous environment is really, really, really unique. I've never had to do this before in my entire career.

    I recently watched a really interesting interview, which Rebecca gave to Chelsea Handler. Mader appears to be an extremely nice person. She's got great sense of humor.



    In the first part of the show Rebecca touches her LOST experience. She describes what it was like when she was told her character was going to die.



    Then Mader talks about her latest movie "Men Who Stare at Goats", which is currently work in progress. The cast includes such stars as George Clooney, Kevin Spacey and Ewan McGregor. Rebecca Mader plays a lead female role of Helen (Ewan McGregor's wife). The project is supposed to be released late in 2009.

  • I think this is a character a lot of people dont like since she is tough and hard. And characters like this has to get some time to warm up to the audience, sadly charlotte didn't get a lot of time on the show. nevertheless i loved her!moreless

And I hope that we'll get to see more of her in flashbacks (or shifts in time or whatever happens next). I think, and hope, she has more to contribute to the show, and wee need more tough women on this show. All we got left now is Juliet and Sun,,, and Kate.moreless
