Actor Dominic Monaghan discussed the series finale of 'Lost' Monday, telling HuffPost Live that he never actually watched the final episode.
"I didn't see the end, I was working at the time," Monaghan told HuffPost Live. "I was doing a film called 'I Sell The Dead,' which was a kind of period-horror movie, and I'm very susceptible, in that sponge-like brain part of me, to taking on board characteristics of friends or certainly characters that I've played. And I didn't want to watch Charlie, because I knew if I watched Charlie I'd be much more like him and the character I played in this film 'I Sell The Dead' was nothing like Charlie."
Asked why he never went back and watched the episode, Monaghan said: "No, because then I'd have to watch it all again -- I'd have to go all the way back to season 1 and just kill myself watching it all again."
Nevertheless, Monaghan said he was aware that some fans of the series were unhappy with the finale. Though he defended the controversial episode, saying "you can't please all the people all the time."
"There's so many fans of "Lost" -- so many millions of fans around the world -- there's so many people that were happy with it and then there's gonna be a few people that are gonna be disappointed with it," Monaghan told HuffPost Live's Alyona Minkovski. "I mean that's the thing, in this climate, like, because there's so many people who like it -- like Justin Bieber has so many fans, that means that some of those fans are gonna absolutely adore everything that he does, and any move that he makes, some people in his fan are gonna hate it because you can't please all the people all the time."
