Matthew Fox on why he returned to TV for ‘Last Light’

Matthew Fox makes his return to television 12 years after the end of Lost in the new Peacock apocalyptic miniseries, Last Light.

Fox explained why he chose this project to return to the small screen

“There’s a lot of reasons. It really came down to I had done a bucket list of things that I wanted to accomplish in the business and the one thing that I hadn’t done is I hadn’t done any executive producing and I really wanted to try that,” Fox, who serves as an EP on the series, tells ET’s Matt Cohen. “I wanted to try my hand at it and and have my hand in more elements of the story than just the role that I was portraying.”

“Obviously the story itself, the macro backdrop of the story [is] this oil crisis and this family at the core of it that is separated through this crisis and striving to get back together again and be reunited. All those elements are things that I’m drawn to and I thought was a really interesting story to be a part of. There were many elements that brought me to it,” he says.

About Last Light

The five-episode series is based on Alex Scarrow’s best-selling 2007 novel. It kicks off when the world’s oil ceases to function correctly and all means of power and communication begin to fail. Fox plays Andy Yeats, an ex-pat living in London, and one of the world’s leading petro-chemical engineers. Froggatt portrays his wife, Elena Yeats, who gave up her professional career after her son is diagnosed with a progressive, degenerative eye disease, and made it her life’s mission to find a cure.

Last Light is an incredibly action-packed thriller-drama,” Froggatt teases, also describing it as “dystopian.” “We meet our family just before this happens. But our family ends up being separated across different countries at the time of this global crisis and travel is stopped. They’re fighting to get back to each other, literally, but also emotionally because they have had some difficulties. Their son is suffering from a degenerative eye disorder and that’s put a strain on their marriage. Ultimately, they find a humanity and find a love and rediscover that they as a family unit are the most important thing.”

Currently studying Communication sciences, when I’m not crying for university, I’m crying for TV series. I like running off into imaginary worlds because they’re way better than reality. Oscar nominated for mental movies. A perfect mix of Jane Sloan, Jessica Day and Clary Morgenstern (The book version, though). In my free time, I write articles and TV series reviews, so to combine two biggest passions of mine.
