As reported in this article Kristen Bell was approached to star in the hit ABC drama Lost. However, Michael Ausiello of TV Guide has updated his report to reveal that the actress turned down the role because she didn’t want to relocate to Hawaii, where the series is filmed.
Ausiello had this to say:
The greatest casting coup of the century was apparently not meant to be: A spokesperson for Kristen Bell, responding to my report in Wednesday’s AA, notified me late last night that my BFF won’t be joining Lost next season. Although her rep didn’t provide a reason, I did a little digging and my sources say Bell — who was formally approached by Lost execs this week — turned down the gig primarily because she didn’t want to relocate to Hawaii.
The star of the recently canceled CW series Veronica Mars may next appear in the broadway show Legally Blonde. More information on that at the source link below.
