Matthew Fox to quit TV

Matthew Fox believes he will retire from TV after hit series 'Lost' comes to an end

Matthew Fox won't make another TV show when 'Lost' ends.

The actor - who plays Dr. Jack Shephard in the cult US series - believes his small-screen career will be over when the programme finishes at the end of season six next year.

He said: "I'm pretty sure that will be the last television thing that I will do."

Matthew believes his character has become a firm favourite with fans of the show because he isn't perfect.

He explained: "We didn't want Jack to be a classic archetype of a hero, riding in to save the day. People aren't that way. People have flaws and heroism comes from rising above those flaws."

Matthew admits his dream role would be to play Steve McQueen in a biopic.

He said: "Steve McQueen was pretty f**king cool. He was an action guy and a man of few words and he liked his roles like that."
