star says three years has taken ‘a bit of a toll’ on Claire
play sort of the old Claire, or the original Claire in flashes, but ... three years has taken a bit of a toll on (new) Claire and she’s a little different right now,” de Ravin said while in town to promote her upcoming film, Remember Me.
“She’s been living on her own. Her only contact has been with Locke who is no longer Locke, or as she calls him, her friend. Her only objective in these three years ... is to try and find her son, to try and find Aaron. That’s all she’s been trying to do and it hasn’t worked so there’s quite a bit of built up frustration there as well, which comes out in quirky ways but also violent ways and unpredictable manner.”
Last Tuesday’s episode was full of surprise revelations involving a gun-toting, wild-haired Claire and the other castaways.
While Claire appears to be under the sway of a nasty version of Locke, Jacob leads Hurley (who in turn, leads Jack) to a lighthouse where they find a bizarre contraption consisting of dials and mirrors that reveal their lives off the island.
De Ravin admits to hoping for a happy ending for her character, but given the show’s wild leanings, notes anything is possible.
“It’d be nice to see her back with Aaron,” said de Ravin. “But that could also happen, I suppose, in a (time) flash. It doesn’t have to happen in island time.”
Lost returns to CTV on Tuesday.
