Thank god, Dominic Monaghan has a “good relationship with water,” or else shooting his big death on Lost would’ve been a lot harder.
In the ABC sci-fi drama’s third season episode “Through the Looking Glass,” former rock star Charlie Pace (Monaghan) drowned to death trying to warn his fellow castaways that the supposed boat off the coast of the mysterious island wasn’t actually Penny’s boat (#NotPennysBoat). It was one of the show’s most heartbreaking deaths, especially because Desmond (Henry Ian Cusick) had spent much of the season trying to stop it from happening.
You would think Monaghan would’ve been scared shooting his big death scene since drowning to death is some people’s biggest fear; however, in the video above, he tells Couch Surfing host Lola Ogunnaike that wasn’t the case at all.
“For me, it was just another day at work,” he admits. “I have a good relationship with water. I spend a lot of time in it. I swim, I scuba dive, I surf. It’s always been really kind to me, water. I don’t feel scared or intimidated being in the water.”
