Michael Emerson as Ben on Lost

Michael Emerson, who plays the mysterious Ben on ABC’s Lost was interviewed by BuddyTV a few days ago. Many of the questions asked revolve around Michael’s interpretation of who Ben and The Others are:

So when Ben says that the Others are the “good guys.” Should we take that that there are bad guys on the island and are we going to see them at some point?

I take it to mean that at least in Ben’s mind, they are fighting some kind of good fight and that there are wicked people or wicked powers that they’re fighting against. But those wicked powers haven’t been very clearly identified yet. Although in coming episodes we’re going to be begin to get a trickle of evidence about the warring parties.

Ah, so there may be another party involved?

Yeah. There may be lost-aways and Others and also, someone else. I’m not sure who that is yet.

    When Ben says that the Others are the good guys, that’s to be expected. Judging from what Patchy said about Sayid, Freckles and Locke, the Others are probably taught that the Losties are not much better than stray dogs which makes experimenting on them and their children acceptable.

    Good point Xtra. Doesn’t everyone think they’re the good guys?

    based on what we heard from mikhail, it sounds like there was at one point a big dharma/others war – perhaps it’s still going on?

    I absolutely love this actor – I’ve never seen him in anything else, but he’s creepy good.

    I was thinking the same thing, Joe, and I can’t shake the feeling that my beloved Locke’s involved somehow.

    I first saw him on The Practice a few years ago and he was just as creepy on that show, if not moreso.
