One would think that starring in “Lost” would give an actor an advantage in knowing what the heck is going on.
But Emilie de Ravin, who plays Claire on the baffling drama, had the same questions as many fans did this season when an episode revealed that, in the future, Kate (Evangeline Lilly) is raising Claire’s son Aaron.
“I guess I just sort of wondered where Claire’s at,” de Ravin said. “Is she still on the island? Did she die? What happened to her?”

The Australia native said viewers won’t find out in Thursday night’s two-hour season finale (at 9 p.m. on WCVB, Ch. 5).
“No, you don’t know what happens to Claire,” she said. “That’s not one of the things that comes to a conclusion. The finale has more questions than answers. I have to be tight-lipped about the finale. What can I ever say? It’s big. There’s a lot going on. It’s sort of interesting what you see in the future.”
When viewers last saw Claire, she had been separated from Aaron and was calmly sitting in Jacob’s cabin. What was that about?
“She is not evil, but there is something going on that I don’t know about. I kind of stopped asking too many questions a long time ago. You are not going to know everything. There are always things you are going to find out.”
She promises that viewers will see Claire in the season-ender.
“Claire sort of pops up in an unexpected place,” she said cryptically.
The actress, who can be seen in the upcoming movie “Public Enemies” opposite Johnny Depp, said she has stopped worrying about whether she will be written off the series like so many of her former co-stars.
“I’ve been around this long, so that’s a good thing,” she said. “I connect with Claire being sort of a strong, driven character who goes through a lot. She has sort of come through with such a graceful way about her. She’s very strong and very focused on getting off the island.”
But de Ravin still struggles to adjust to the cast changes, especially the departure of Dominic Monaghan, who played Claire’s love interest Charlie.
“It really has made it difficult. You get used to working with someone and it’s sad. But it’s interesting emotions to work with. Dealing with death and something like that has a big impact on your character. It’s interesting having that in the back of your mind.”
