Sonya Walger: FlashForward Different from Lost

by at . Comments

FlashForward is receiving more publicity than any new show in memory.

A major reason why is the comparisons to Lost. But Sonya Walger, an actress that has first hand experience on both dramas, doesn't really see it that way.

In a new interview, she explained the differences between the shows:

"I think they're only valid in that they're both big ensemble shows with one big concept or premise. But after that, they part ways really quite rapidly. FlashForward is definitely not a sci-fi show. It doesn't have the mythology of Lost. We have one major event that happens that you are asked to buy into. After that, you're dealing with very human ripple effects - how people deal with it and how they come to terms with it.

There are six-and-a-half billion people that have blacked out, so that's potentially six-and-a-half billion stories to tell! Believe me, we're not telling all of them. But we're about to start [filming] episode eight and I'm so surprised by how far the ripple has been felt."
