If you’re a LOST fan, I’m sure you’ve heard of the fan gathering in Hawaii on 20-22nd September, celebrating the 10th anniversary of LOST‘s premiere. Whether you went or not, let’s look at the most interesting facts about the event.

Jorge Garcia, who portrayed Hugo Reyes – or Hurley to you and I, was a special guest during LOST 2014 and not only answered many questions the fans had, but also signed autographs and had time for a selfie. Jorge was a cast member of Hawaii 5-0 at the time and took time from his busy schedule to meet LOST fans.
