S Lost views that happen all the time in streaming services, it’s easy to forget that the show ended 12 years ago! And not long after the applauded series bowed to this star Matthew Fox followed the example.
IN Party of the five Alum made several films after that, in particular to play a shredded villain Alex Cross and the cowboy anti-hero in the subterfuge of horror / Western Bone tomahawk. But then? He moved away from business.
In fact, it’s all over seven years since Fox stepped in front of the camera!
He is finally back in a new show called Last lightand in a press conference for peacock series, he took some time to explain his long pause. As for why he chose the moment he did to stop acting, he explained that his participation in this western was an occasion for him:
“I had in mind a list of things I wanted to achieve in business, and after I did Bone tomahawk in 2014, this somewhat completed the list. I wanted to make a western. It’s a very strange western, but it’s a western. And so this species ended the bucket list.
As for why he was already thinking about retiring, he explained that it was all about focusing on his family – before his children got old and he missed everything! He recalled:
“At that time in my life, our children were at an age where I felt I really needed to get involved again. I’ve been focused on working for a while and [my wife] Margarita ran the family so beautifully, but I felt it was time to go home and I really felt like I was retiring from business and working on other creative elements that were really personal to me – a little music and writing. ”
So why am I coming back? Well, it was all about the story of Last light which attracted him:
I just spent seven years living my life with my family and pursuing things that excite me, but storytelling is in my DNA in a way, and I felt that this form of storytelling was something I wanted to get involved again and see how you felt. And I’m really happy that I did it – it was good. “
This time he took over more ownership as an executive producer – something he had added to his wish list:
“I came to a point where I thought maybe the list included executive production. I’ve never done this before. The opportunity to participate in Last light came and so I wanted to try. And it felt like a good time. “
