Filming LOST kept married actors Michael Emerson and Carrie Preston apart for the better part of four and a half years.
Emerson (a.k.a Benjamin Linus) needed to be on location in Hawaii, while Preston stayed in New York City.
When LOST ended Carrie expands that a little pooch, named Chumley, helped the couple get back into to swing of things,
"To be in a situation where we were with each other pretty much every day for a long time, we realize how much we miss that, and we got a dog and that really brought us together. It's just been a very lovely time."
The True Blood star said her husband's is glad to be working from NYC now, so he can be closer to
her Chumley. Preston said:
"He's been really wanting to spend time with me and Chumley. It is exciting because he's shooting a show in our primary residency, New York City. That's our home base."
But Chumley doesn't always stay in NYC, he seems to follow Michael around across the country because we see him walking his dog around West Hollywood all the time!
