Somewhere in paradise
There is no place where Matthew Fox would rather be than home, but only if surrounded by his lovely wife Margherita, lively daughter Kyle, 8, and laid-back son Byron, 4.

And, preferably, if they are all in the swimming pool of their sprawling, breeze-cooled home near Waikiki overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

A serious family man, the tall, muscular Wyoming farm boy/TV star has adapted well in the Hawaiian version of paradise.

“My son is learning to swim and one of my favorite things right now is being there next to him,” said Fox, a smile taking up his whole face.

“We both put on goggles and dive so I can watch him underwater,” he continued, rubbing his stubbled chin. “It’s one of the coolest things ever ... just the way he moves and the facial expressions he has when swimming underwater is like the greatest thing ever.

“My daughter, who has been in the water since she was a baby, swims like a fish. She wants a surfboard. We all play as much as possible.”

But when Fox isn’t at home, there is no place that he would rather be than on the set of “Lost” — or at any function promoting the huge U.S. hit show globally.

He was the last cast member standing at a recent beach bash at the Turtle Bay Resort on Oahu’s North Shore tossed by Buena Vista Home Entertainment to focus on the “Lost” DVD box set that includes all 24 episodes of the first season.

“Its amazing how fast ‘Lost’ made its way around the world — I could see and feel it really taking off in Europe this summer,” Fox said.

“A very, very cinematic show, I think viewers who missed some segments of last season will have an awesome time catching up with serious ‘Lost’ DVD marathons,” he said while keeping an eye on his fellow crash survivors dancing in the dark, including Naveen Andrews, Dominic Monaghan, Evangeline Lilly, Emilie de Ravin, Maggie Grace, Terry O’Quinn, Josh Holloway and Jorge Garcia.

With “Lost’s” recent history readily available, Fox feels free to explore Dr. Jack Sheppard’s future on the mysterious island somewhere in the vast, turbulent ocean between Sydney and Los Angeles.

“This year will be a different philosophical journey for Jack,” he explained. “Bizarre, unexplainable things will be seen through the eyes of Jack, a man of science, and Locke, (O’Quinn), a man of fate.”

Fox, who earned a large international fan base as eldest son Charlie Salingeron on the drama series “Party of Five,” assumes that he has reached a higher plateau with “Lost.”

“Creatively, it was the most exciting year I’ve ever had,” he said, laughing. “For the first time in my life I’m getting major studio movie offers and attention from widely different fields. I’m honored and flattered, but at the same time I’m trying to be selective about what I do. It’s tough, and fun.”

Another first this season for Fox is letting his daughter watch the show.

“Kyle is 8 years old now, but the thing is that she has spent so much time hanging out with the cast that she understands it’s all make-believe,” he explains. “But I couldn’t tell her what was under the hatch, even when she begged me.”
