Played cursed lottery winner-turned-Island protector Hugo ''Hurley'' Reyes
LOOKING BACK ''That first summer that we were shooting the show, we knew we were doing something different. We had an episode that was half in Korean with subtitles, and we [said], 'People aren't doing this on TV right now.'''
ABOUT THAT FINALE ''I still get people who say that they love the show and didn't like the ending, and they'll ask me what I thought of the ending. I love the ending. For one thing, I end up with the Island. How can I not like that ending?''
LIFE AFTER LOST ''I was leaving Lost, prepared to wait a while for people to forget me in this one part before I might get a chance to find something else that was exciting to do,'' he shares. ''[But] everything just kept popping up.'' Indeed, he's appeared everywhere from the cover of Weezer's Hurley album to How I Met Your Mother to Mr. Sunshine to Fringe. Now Garcia is ready to settle down, signing on to star in another J.J. Abrams drama about people from another unusual island, Alcatraz. This time around, he plays Dr. Diego Soto, the leading expert on the infamous prison. ''He's a doctor, as in he has multiple Ph.D.'s, but he's still played by me, so he's not your typical expert.''
