I can’t imagine asking to be killed off one of the most successful primetime dramas in recent history but that is what happened with Mr Eko, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.
Akinnuoye-Agbaje asked to be written off the series. After losing both parents last year, he wanted to return to his London home and work on a film he’ll direct.
Many people think Eko is just the latest casualty of the Hawaiian police department. Eko was just recently arrested for what seems to be common place on the Lost set, a DUI.
Elizabeth Mitchell, who plays Juliet, got to know him off the set. “We got along really well,” she says. “He’s about to direct his first movie about his life, which is an incredible story. He’ll be missed.”
