After warnings of a tsunami were issued in Hawaii following a massive earthquake in Chile this week, the cast of the hit TV series Lost, who works and plays on the island, are bracing themselves for what is to come.
Lost actor Daniel Dae Kim, who also lives in the area with his entire family, canceled a work related trip to L.A. this morning due to the heightened weather threat.
“My family and I are doing fine. We’ve moved to high ground and are staying with friends who generously opened their home to us. All that’s left to do is wait. Heartfelt thanks to everyone who sends their thoughts and good wishes,” Daniel tells E! Online on Saturday.
Carlton Cuse, executive producer and screenwriter to Lost, even took to Twitter to make sure the entire cast was taken care of and protected.
“To ALL on the LOST crew — responding to the Tsunami warning — safe refuge is available at the studio. Waves to reach Hawaii just after 11 AM,” Carlton tweeted.
In the meantime, the rest of the ensemble cast found comfort in spending time with each other while trying to stay out of harm’s way even squeezed in a few games to pass the time.
“All our cast and crew is accounted for and safely away from coastal area. Jorge Garcia continues to thrash me in Scrabble via iPhone from Ken Leung‘s house,” co-creator reveals to E! Online of the cast’s safety, “Our entire team in Hawaii appreciates all the positive energy being sent their way.”
