THE
PLOT-TWISTER

DAMON LINDELOF
SCREENWRITER
AND PRODUCER

PORTRAIT: BRIAN BOWEN SMITH

Although he doesn’t have an office at Bad Robot — he’s based on the Disney lot — it’s become like 
a second home for Damon Lindelof. “The rumours are true: it’s a geek wonderland,” he confirms. “J.J. has a Twilight Zone pinball machine which I became so jealous of, I bought one for myself. 
He also has some really great pieces of original artwork down there that I’m fairly covetous of.” Lindelof has been close friends with Abrams and Bryan Burk since the start of the Lost days, when the words “bad robot” were synonymous with Terminators, not high-powered production companies. “They spent quite some time constructing that building and it has a tremendous energy. Everybody gets along and fraternises incredibly well. Who wouldn’t want to work there?”

Finally, we must know: who comes out on top at 
a Lindelof/Abrams pinball contest? “I don’t think we’ve ever gone face to face,” he laughs. “It’s kind of a lose-lose proposition, because if I were to beat J.J., what does that really say about me? That I have more time to practise pinball!”
