Interesting interview with Francois Chau who plays Pierre Chang
How was your role on Lost first presented to you? Did you also think you were just Marvin Candle appearing once in an orientation film or did you know you would get a more important role later on?
I believed that the character “Marvin Candle” was just going to appear once in the orientation video. There was no indication that it was going to be anything more than that.
When you found out that your character would become more than just a narrator of orientation films, what was your reaction?
Of course I was very happy when my character broke out of the orientation videos. It was great to have some interaction with other characters.
