‘Lost’: Terry O’Quinn will take you behind the smoke and UnLocke a few secrets about his character
Ew.com has a mini Q & A with Terry O’Quinn to go along with their Lost cover. Make sure to grab a copy of the magazine. Excerpts from the interview below:
EW: Any hints you can provide about where we’re headed in the next chunk of episodes?
TO: My guy—Smokey, as I call him—has a plan and he has an objective, and he’s working toward it. The question is, ‘Is it for his own good or for the good of everyone?’ That’s still up for debate.
EW: Is it an honor to be the Smoke Monster?
TO: Oh, yeah. It’s fun to play. I mean, it’s just totally different from whatever John Locke was. Bad guys have better secrets. And if he’s a bad guy, he’s got a lot of secrets. And that’s what frustrates people. When [Sawyer] says, “What are you?” and Smokey says, “What I am is trapped,” okay—you don’t pursue that question. Everybody else will go, “Well, what the hell does that mean? Who are you? Come on, man!” But we’re going to have to wait until another week to find that out.
EW: In last week’s episode, Ilana said that Smokey is “recruiting,” and we saw him go after Richard Alpert and Sawyer. Is his first order of business to recruit all of the castaways?
TO: There’s some recruiting that goes on. We’re doing an episode now called “The Last Recruit.” He has a purpose. As you know, all of a sudden, they’re establishing all these rules. “You can’t do this unless this…” It’s like a children’s game. We keep making up new rules [laughs]. So the recruiting has to do with fulfilling the rules.

I am enjoying seeing Locke as the bad guy (although we’re not sure he’s the bad guy yet.) He’s doing a great job with Fake Locke, or Flocke as some have labeled him. What do you think of Locke’s story line?
Woot for True Blood. I’m ready to re-watch season 2 to prep for season 3. I’m so excited to see where they take the show this season. Will you re-watch season 2?
