Title: Sayid's passport?
Post by: sonician on February 04, 2010, 10:48:05 AM
Not sure if its been mentioned, but anyone notice that Sayid's passport was listed as "Iran" rather than "Iraq"?
Thought that was an interesting change, but not really sure how that could have changed.

It looks like Iraq to me.  You can see the line of the q coming up.

no, look at the right page, the printed words. That link has a blow up of it attached to the pic as well. Wow, what a catch!

Excellent catch! I kept trying to make something of his passport, but couldn't read it. Thanks for the blow up!

It isn't a fake passport made by CIA? Blame CIA.

The handwriting part looks like "Iraq" (I think that's the card you had to customs officials saying where you will be staying in the country and all that).  But yes, the PRINTED part clearly says "Iran."  Interesting...!  I'd have to say this is a prop error since the writing differs from the print.  But very good catch indeed!

We don't know how much things have changed in the alternate timeline. Could be related to that.

Is it weird that I thought the same thing? lol

This is what I will conclude too, if it's part of the story and not a prop error.

He's a Brit. His parents are from India.

At the same time, these guys know us Losties scour over every minor detail. If it's a prop error, boo on whoever's job that is.

I know he's British ... I was speaking in the context of him knowing his own character.  I have a suspicion we probably know more about the characters than the actors themselves do though ...  ;D

I'm sorry. I hope I didn't come across as demeaning. I actually figured you knew he was British.
