Nerdist Podcast: Dominic Monaghan (TWCH)

“You All Everybody!” It’s time to crank up some Drive Shaft, because former Lost star Dominic Monaghan is Talking with Chris Hardwick! Last Sunday, Dominic joined our founder, Chris Hardwick, for another episode of his late night AMC talk show. But this is our special extended edition of Chris’ conversation with Dominic, and there’s nothing held back here!

With everything on the table for Dominic, Chris had a chance to talk about his signature role as Charlie on Lost, and why his exit from that series came at the perfect time to make an impact. They also speculated what Lost would have been like in the age of social media, after Dominic explained why he doesn’t want a cell phone and how some early advice from Chris led to his twitter addiction. They also touched upon toxicity in fandom, and its more violent counterpart among sports fans.

Dominic also shared a few stories from his years working on The Lord of the Rings trilogy, including one fan’s quest to collect the nine members of the Fellowship, as well as a healthy headbutt from one of his co-stars to mark his birthday. Dominic also told Chris his favorite memory from that era, as well as his desire to film “The Scouring of the Shire” from Return of the King.

Additionally, Chris raved about Dominic’s role in the horror film, Pet, and his most recent movie, Atomica. Additionally, they spoke about their mutual love of video games and what kind of a Doctor that Dominic would be if he had been cast Doctor Who‘s newest star.

Make sure to watch Talking with Chris Hardwick Sunday nights at 11pm on AMC or on amc.com/talking! The extended audio will premiere as a podcast here every Friday after a new episode makes its AMC debut.
