The series, a genre offering of sci-fi, fantasy and horror, took a giant ensemble cast and created a world where every character played a major role in the outcome of the series finale.

  2. Naveen Andrews – Naveen Andrews plays military assassin Sayid in the cast of “Lost.” Sayid is the one person in the survivors of the plane crash who is trained to successfully defend himself when the “others” attack.
