There was one former ‘Lost’ star who was not on the finale–but it wasn’t for lack of trying by the show’s producers.
He was the fifth character that had been killed on the series, and the producers wanted him to make a guest appearance on the finale, according to E! online’s Watch with Kristen blog, written by Kristen Dos Santos.
Wrote Dos Santos, "According to ABC and Lost insiders, [Mr.
IEko, played by Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje] was offered a hearty sum to do one scene in the last hurrah, but the actor wanted five times the amount that was offered. It didn’t work out."
