What's Hot: 6x05: User Requested Images
I was originally going to title this article, "The Many Faces Of Marvin Candle..uh, I mean Mark Wickmund, crap, I mean Edgar Halliwax, or is it Pierre Chang. Oh hell, you get the idea" but that seemed like an awefully long title for such a short article. I think you all get the idea. Actor Francois Chau (that's his real life name!) has had the unique fortune of being the only character in the entire show 4 names (to date).
Thanks to a new video released this past summer at Comic con, it seems that we've finally discovered that our favorite Dharma scientists real name is Pierre Chang. I saw what's being called The Barracks video for the first time yesterday, and found it astounding. I'd heard about it last summer, of course, but in my lazy, Lost hiatus mood chose not to watch it at the time. But it got me wondering who else hadn't seen it yet. And for that matter, who else out there has forgotten about the other fantastic videos we've seen from this Dharma Scientist. So follow the jump and refresh yourself on the many faces of....oh hell, you know who I mean.
The Swan Station Orientation Film - This video gave us our first meeting with Dr. Marvin Candle, and prepped us, and the castaways, on the mysterious purpose of The Swan. As is typical with Lost, the video created more mystery and questions than it answered and left us wanting more. First seen in Season 2, episode 3, "Orientation."
The Pearl Orientation Film - This time he uses the name Mark Wickmund and is filmed from inside the actual Pearl Station itself. There is no intro of the Dharma initiative on this video as well, unlike the Swan film, and we first see this video when Locke and Eko watch it in Season 2, episode 21, "?"
The Orchid Orientation Film - In this film we meet Chang as Dr. Edgar Halliwax, as he explains the strange and secret purpose of the Orchid Station. This video was originally released in 2007, at Comic-con, but later appeared in Season 4, episode 13, "There's No Place Like Home, Parts 2 & 3."
The Barracks Video - In this final video, we appear to get the real name of our oldest Dharma friend, Pierre Chang. This video is fantastic, and was just released in the summer of 2008 at Comic-con. In the video Chang warns us about an upcoming Purge that he's gotten from "reliable" sources. Listen closely at the end of the video for a voice you are sure to recognize.
