Fox's role as Dr. Jack Shephard, the group's tortured leader, was his TV comeback after playing Charlie Salinger on Party of Five.

After Lost, he appeared in films like 2012's Alex Cross and 2013's World War Z. After some personal setbacks — Fox was charged with a DUI in Oregon in 2012 — he took a break from the spotlight. Fox returned to the small screen on the Peacock series Last Light, which premiered in 2022.

He and his wife Margherita Ronchi share two children, Kyle and Byron.

Garcia was fan-favorite Hugo "Hurley" Reyes, whose cursed lottery numbers would become one of Lost's greatest mysteries.

After the show wrapped, Garcia appeared on several TV shows, including Alcatraz, How I Met Your Mother and Hawaii Five-0. He also had a cameo in David Spade's Netflix comedy The Wrong Missy as the "guy on plane" — appropriate for the Lost alum. In 2022, he appeared on season 7 of The Masked Singer.

Garcia tied the knot to actress Rebecca Birdsall in June 2019 in Ireland.

Sun-Hwa's husband, Jin-Soo Kwon, was played by Daniel Dae.

Daniel Dae remained in Hawaii — where much of Lost was filmed — following the series to star in Hawaii Five-0 for seven seasons from 2010 to 2017. He appeared on New Amsterdam and has also had roles in the Divergent film franchise and 2019's Hellboy and Always Be My Maybe. He and his wife, Mia Haeyoung Rhee, have been married since 1993 and share two children.

The actor has spoken out about attacks on the AAPI community in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and was named to the White House's AAPI Visibility Task Force. He even opened up about speaking to the creators of Lost about the Asian stereotypes that could've played out on the show.

"While we were shooting, I remember sitting down with Damon Lindelof and J.J. Abrams and saying, 'Guys, this character cannot progress in this same way,'" he said. "They basically said, 'Trust us.' I did, and it turned out for the best."

He continued, "As an Asian actor, you're just looking to get hired. It's about working within the system to try and change it when you have the opportunity ... The character grew to a place where I don't think you'd call him a stereotype by the end."

Somerhalder played original castaway Boone Carlyle, but he was — spoiler alert! — killed off on season 2 (although typical of Lost, he made a few more appearances on the show).

Luckily, his character's death did little to hinder his career. Somerhalder later starred on the HBO series Tell Me You Love Me, but it was his role as Damon Salvatore on The Vampire Diaries that cemented his pop culture status. He also starred on the short-lived Netflix series V Wars.

Somerhalder married actress Nikki Reed in 2015, and the couple welcomed daughter Bodhi Soleil in 2017 and announced in January 2023 that they are expecting a second child.
