In the flash sideways, a taxi driver at Los Angeles International Airport picked up a pregnant Claire when Kate hopped in the back. When the cab driver said he already had a passenger, Kate pulled a gun on him and told him to drive. ("LA X, Part 2")

Claire begged to be let out of the taxi but Kate refused. The driver stopped when Leslie Arzt's luggage was strewn on the road. Claire tried to get out, but Kate wouldn't let her. After finally running over the luggage, the taxi driver fled the cab while stopped at a red light. ("What Kate Does")


  • The casting call described him as "Paul. Male, 30s to 60s, any ethnicity. Overworked, harried from a long day and many hours, faced with a highly adrenalized situation that forces him to remain calm and tests his ability to keep his wits about him - a test he fails as panic wins out." [1]
