**UPDATED** Thanks to MNE who reminded me that there was a casting call for Solanga.
Hot off the digital presses we finally get a confirmation about a Desmond sighting!! Our good friend Ryan once again found his way to the LOST set today and was able to provide us with a new report. Ryan was able to confirm that Henry Ian Cusick was indeed on set and he was able to watch a couple of scenes.
It seems like Des has found his way to a Philippines beach market and is looking for someone!? Nope not Penny, but Ryan posts that it seems like someone named: Althea or Theone with a last name of Salonga.
From a previous casting call, Solanga is supposed to be a village doctor.
What do you think this could all mean!? Is this a Des Centric episode!? Is he mind flashing again!? Who is sick and why does need the doctor!? Maybe some more of that Dharma Vaccine to help him flash… 😉
Here are some of the key points from the report along with some new set pics:
When action was called, Henry Ian Cusick raced into the heart of the bustling marketplace. Desmond was out of breath, sweaty, wearing an unbuttoned maroon paisley shirt rolled up to his elbows, light khaki pants, and blue canvas shoes. He was clutching a piece of paper, reading it, then scanning the crowd frantically. He called out a name, over and over, stopping and saying it to perplexed faces.
He was looking for someone, but losing hope.
Try as I might, I couldn’t make out the first name. Althea? Theone? Was it a man, a woman, a child? From context, I’d guess it was a male name. But the last name was clear as day: Salonga.
Between takes, hair and makeup sprayed down Cusick’s shirt, face and chest with water, but not all the sweat was fake. He passed the time with a jumprope, jumping briskly while the director gave him advice on how to handle the scene.
