In a recent interview with British magazine “New”, Josh Holloway (Sawyer) said that he doesn’t know more about Sawyer’s future than the viewers, but that if and when it is time for Sawyer to go, he knows how he would like things to end:
“In the current atmosphere of TV shows the writers are willing to kill a main character without any problem. So that’s a possibility.
But when it happens, I want a big, bloody Braveheart-style battle. I want Sawyer to die badly!”
I don’t think we should take Josh’s comment literally, but the prospect of getting to paint his face blue was to entertaining to pass up. No hard feelings Josh!
