Daniel Dae Kim Says His Character Was Supposed Be Killed Off 'Lost' in Season One

Daniel Dae Kim is looking back on his career in a new interview with Vulture.

The 52-year-old actor opened up about his breakout role on Lost as Jin-Soo Kwon, who didn’t make the best first impression on viewers.

In fact, Daniel revealed, his character was almost killed off in the first season.

“From what I understand, it was planned for me to be killed off in season one. I was not a very sympathetic character, so it would have been easy for me to get killed off without the show missing a beat,” he shared.

However, that all changed thanks to one series writer, Monica Macer.

“She is African American and Korean American. She lobbied for me,” he says, and added that they are friends to this day.

Daniel continued, “I also like to think they didn’t think I was so terrible that I didn’t deserve to be on the show. As an Asian actor, you’re just looking to get hired. It’s about working within the system to try and change it when you have the opportunity. The character grew to a place where I don’t think you’d call him a stereotype by the end.”

He also revealed that since his character only spoke Korean at first, the script was actually translated into the language and then Daniel was taught it.

“The greatest benefit of it all was that my Korean was never better. The opportunity to be able to learn Korean on an American TV show is once in a lifetime. So I’m grateful for it,” he shared.

You can next see Daniel in Netflix’s Stowaway, out on April 22. Watch the thrilling trailer here!

Anna Kendrick Embarks On A Mission To Mars in First Trailer for 'Stowaway'

Anna Kendrick holds on tight while falling through space in the first trailer for Netflix’s upcoming Stowaway.

The first trailer comes just a day after the first look pics debuted.

Alongside Anna, the upcoming movie also stars Daniel Dae Kim, Toni Collette, and Shamier Anderson and will debut on Thursday, April 22.

Here is the synopsis: “On a mission headed to Mars, an unintended stowaway accidentally causes severe damage to the spaceship’s life support systems. Facing dwindling resources and a potentially fatal outcome, the crew is forced to make an impossible decision.”

“The thing that feels really relevant is less the isolation of it and more that kind of problem-solving part of your brain that we were all engaging so vigorously in the first couple months of the pandemic,” Anna shared with EW about the relevancy of the film. “Just that constant problem-solving of, ‘wait, okay, how do we fix this?’ And just when it seems like you’re onto something, there’s some very obvious fundamental problem.”

“It was so simple and so lean, but totally compelling,” Anna said. Toni added, “I had never really read anything like it. It is contained and the characters are confined but the questions posed, moral and otherwise, are vast and wide open.”

Anna was asked if she’d ever go to Mars if she were given the opportunity. She said, “Never. Not ever, not in a million years. Never, never, never, never, never, never. I would do a lot of things… I would skydive. I would get a neck tattoo before I’d go to space.”

You’ve gotta see the funny tweet that Anna posted over the weekend!

Daniel Dae Kim Speaks Out at Congressional Hearing on Anti-Asian Violence

Daniel Dae Kim is speaking out.

The 52-year-old actor appeared at a Congressional hearing on Thursday (March 18) where he called out lawmakers who had voted against a resolution that condemned anti-Asian violence.

The meeting took place two days after a shooting in Atlanta, Georgia where eight people lost their lives, six of whom were women of Asian descent.

“I was disheartened to find that for a bill that required no money or resources, just a simple condemnation of acts of hate against people of Asian descent, 164 members of Congress – all Republican – voted against it,” Daniel said.

“And now here I am again, because as every witness in this hearing has pointed out, the situation has gotten worse, much worse.”

“Now I’m not naive enough to think I’m going to convince all of you to stand up for us – trust me, I’ve seen your voting records – but I am speaking to those [for whom] humanity still matters,” he added.

Daniel called on Congress to pass two pieces of legislation, including a bill that would “transform the way hate crimes are reported in the U.S.,” per Politico.

He closed by saying that this was a key moment in U.S. history and the response to these hate crimes “will send a message for generations to come as to whether we matter.”

A number of celebrities also responded to the violence on social media.

'Raya & the Last Dragon' Debuts at No. 1 at the Box Office

Raya and the Last Dragon is No. 1!

The Disney film opened bringing in an estimated $8.6 million during its first weekend at the box office, THR reported Sunday (March 7).

The film’s soft landing was “likely due to the refusal of several key chains — including giant Cinemark Theatres — to carry the fantasy-adventure. That’s because they wanted more generous terms since Raya debuted simultaneously on Disney+ for $30,” according to the outlet.

Overseas, Raya and the Last Dragon opened to $17.6 million from 32 markets for a global total of $26.2 million.

The movie takes us on an exciting, epic journey to the fantasy world of Kumandra, where Raya, a lone warrior, must track down the legendary last dragon to stop an evil force that has returned after 500 years to once again threaten her homeworld. Find out who voices each role!
