Matthew Fox can't believe 'Lost' has finished.
The actor - who portrays Dr. Jack Shepherd in the adventure series - was left drained from his final few weeks working on the programme and hasn't come to terms with the fact it has finished.
He told The Hollywood Reporter: "It's been an incredibly long month for me, the last part of the show. What Jack Shepherd goes through, physically and emotionally, it was a lot of work and really draining, so I think getting to that final shot... it hasn't really sunk in. I mean, I knew it was the final shot while it was happening, even though it was quarter to six in the morning after a 20-hour day.
"It's been an incredible experience. I mean, the whole six years has been an amazing run."
Although he is saddened by the end of the programme - which he has worked on since it began in 2004 - Matthew is pleased with the "beautiful" final scenes.
He said: "It being over and it being done, I couldn't be happier with the way that it ends and what executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and everybody on the creative level, what they've done with the ending. On a subconscious level I think I sort of expected some of it, but there's parts of it that are a huge revelation and really beautiful, really beautiful.
"I think if it works the way that it should work, if we've all done our jobs properly, I think it could be very, very profound."
The 'Lost' finale will air next month in the US.
