I am actor Michael Emerson from LOST and Person of Interest. AMA!
Hi, Reddit. I'm Michael Emerson. You probably know me from LOST and Person of Interest, but you may not know that I actually started acting pretty late in life (I used to be a magazine illustrator). I thought I had achieved peak success when I became a stage actor, so it's been pretty awesome being on television and even winning two Emmy awards.
Right now I'm enjoying playing the mysterious billionaire mastermind Harold Finch on Person of Interest, which returns for Season 5 later this year.
I'm here to answer your questions!
Edit: I have to go now, but this has been great. It felt like a real conversation. I look forward to doing it again!
