There are reports that Michelle Rodriguez, who plays the aggressive, hard-nosed ex-cop Anna Lucia, is enough like that in real life that the shows producers have had it with her.
"The producers are fed up with the fact that she barely shows up on the set and is always in a bad mood," Us Weekly quoted an "insider" as saying. "They said she was getting killed off as soon as they could write it in."
Rodriguez has been pulled over three times for speeding and once for drinking and driving since joining the cast as one of the Talies. How charming is she? This is what she had to say after being pulled over for weaving all over the road:
“I don’t fucking belong here! Why don’t you just put a gun to my head and shoot me! You’ve already taken my freedom! You might as well take my life too!”Anyway, if Anna Lucia bites it in the upcoming war against The Others, led by dictator-in-the-making Jack, it will be ok with me. She gets on my nerves.
It looks like Rodriguez isn't the only one getting into her character. Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who plays reformed badass Nigerian drug lord Mr. Eko, read a prayer at the Hawaii state Senate last week. What did he read? The 23rd Psalm, which is also the title of the episode during which Eko's violent past and struggle for redemption are revealed.
So what's next? Matthew Fox (Jack) starts showing up in local emergency rooms and helping out and Evangeline Lilly (Kate) starts knocking over banks? We can only hope.
