Michael Emerson, left, plays Pyramus in a funny, minimally rehearsed benefit reading of scenes from Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream." Also pictured is Chris Soldeville.

A intimate crowd sees cast members do Shakespeare to raise money for HTY

Several "Lost" actors took a break from filming in the jungle to perform on stage in an intimate setting during a gala benefit for the Honolulu Theatre for Youth last weekend.

Michael Emerson (Ben), Jorge Garcia (Hurley), Elizabeth Mitchell (Juliet), Daniel Dae Kim (Jin) and Henry Ian Cusick (Desmond) volunteered to read several scenes from "A Midsummer Night's Dream," bringing Shakespeare -- and the enthralled audience -- to life.

Roaring with laughter, guests savored the opportunity to watch actors in a television drama reveal their polished (and too often hidden) comedic skills for the benefit of the community.

 Michael Emerson was spotted in London on 3/29/08. Now, someone spotted him in Hawaii on April 2, 2008:

Last night I had a more direct brush with fame as Lost’s Michael Emerson came back into my restaurant (Sansei Seafood and Sushi) to eat, and I was his server. He was a very nice guy, along with his wife, Carrie Preston, and a few guests from New York. I never brought up the fact of who he was because I’m sure he gets that crap all the time, and I want my guests to be comfortable. They sat out on the lanai, had a bottle of Ruggeri Prosecco, and seemed to have a good time.

Here’s a few interesting facts about him via imdb.com:

He is mainly a stage actor who has worked on Broadway, and occasionally does film and TV.
He graduated from Drake University in Theater Arts.
He used to work as a freelance illustrator for The Boston Globe, and the New York Times.

All in all, it was a good night, and it’s nice to see that he has pretty much become a regular at Sansei.

PHOTO CALL: Edward the Second Opening Night

By Greg Kalafatas
21 Dec 2007

Red Bull Theatre Company's production of Christopher Marlowe's Edward the Second opened Dec. 15 at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater.
The play, which explores the relationship between Edward II and his lover Piers Gaveston, stars Mark Vietor as the title character.
Marlowe's work shines anew in the world-premiere adaptation by the late Garland Wright. "King Edward the Second asserts his right to have the private life he desires, only to have his love, his life and his kingdom destroyed," press materials state. "A timely examination of the struggle for personal human rights amidst a powerful public need for political expediency. It examines the question of whether an individual in public service has the right to a personal life. In a climate of political opportunism, this play confronts the question of individual rights head on, leading to a universal discussion of human rights, amidst a great personal and very public drama of sex, power, and war."

Recently, Michael Emerson visited 'Iolani School, speaking to the cast and crew of Antigone and members of the Lost Fan Club.  I posted the article in this blog. I now obtained the high-resolution pictures from the school's director of communications. You can view them here:

"Lost" Star Visits Students

Michael Emerson, who stars as Ben in the hit ABC series "Lost", visited 'Iolani School on Tuesday, October 30, speaking to the cast and crew of Antigone and members of the Lost Fan Club. 

Emerson got his start in acting as a member of his high school's Speech and Debate Team in Toledo, Iowa. He studied theater and art at Drake University and then moved to New York City because "I thought that's what all actors did," he said.

Emerson talked about his career and his big breaks. He discussed the differences between acting on stage versus for film. He also revealed what working on a series like "Lost" is really like. 

Emerson enjoys learning from seasoned actors who serve as great mentors and examples. Students asked questions following his talk. Emerson graciously signed autographs and posed for pictures. The fourth season of "Lost" will begin airing on ABC in February.

Michael Emerson Visits Local High School in Hawaii  

The following was posted on http://blueberryroses.blogspot.com/:

My stupid ass camera is officially busted and what a time for it break.  Michael Emerson, Emmy winning actor of Lost came by to talk to Lost Club members.  I have to say, he is very down to earth and damn smart too.  He answered everybody's questions and accommodated requests for pictures and autographs.  Luckily, Brian was able to take some pictures, which I will be posting once I get them from him.  What a day!

Here's the picture:


Here's what the blogger has to say about Michael:

I actually have almost the whole visit filmed. I have a bit of a spoiler :) but out of respect...well, you know. I had him do the "got milk?" scene and he jumped right in. How cool is that?

Yes, this is a high school Lost club at Iolani. He's a nice guy and actually comes to the high school production plays to watch in the audience. Very cool guy.
