You should try to renting (or downloading?) the first seasons on dvd if possible! LOST is such an awesome show when you know what's going on (sort of... 'cause nobody knows but everyone pretends to).

This is wonderful news,

I know some didn't take to her as Yves but I thought both she and Stephen were wonderful additions to the Gunmen family and I did get quite emotionally invested in their unrequited love arc. For those interested here is how the news was presented on the largest of Lost fansites...

Here name isn't exactly a household one, but something tells me that's all about to change.

In what reps the first major piece of casting for Lost's fifth season, sources confirm to me exclusively that Zuleikha Robinson has been tapped to play the pivotal role of Illana.

Couple things: Before you ask, it's pronounced Zoo-Lika. And she's done stuff. Some high profile stuff. Like Fox's short-lived New Amsterdam, where she played Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's partner in crime. Prior to that, the London-born actress slaved away as Gaia on HBO's Rome and, in her first big break, had a regular gig on another ill-fated Fox drama, the X-Files spinoff The Lone Gunmen.

Robinson's Lost deal calls for her to start off as a recurring player with an option to become a series regular in season 6 (a.k.a. the farewell season).

As I first reported last month, Ilana is described as a European female who possesses great intelligence, but who's also dangerous as all get out. She's alluring and apparently used to getting her own way.

At the time, EW's Doc Jensen mused that she Illana "sounds exactly like the kind of lethal lady Sayid would fall for. So I’m wondering if the dashing Iraqi is due for a new love interest, yet another lady whose true motivations will be in question."

Team Darlton's not commenting on Doc's theory, or Robinson's casting for that matter (this radio silence thing is going to be the death of me!), so I guess we'll just have to wait until the new season kicks off in (ugh) five long months to see if he's right. In the meantime, go ahead and weigh in on Lost's first big season 5 casting and, while you're at it, feel free to toss out your own Ilana theories.

"See you in another life, brother!"

Guest Laurent.
I watched seasons 1 and 2 and really loved them but after first episodes of season 3 I've lost any interest.

The first half of season three is the worst run of episodes in the entire series! But it gets better toward the end of the season. From what I remember, season 4 is pretty constant awesomeness.
