<small>''The following information is from e-mail correspondence with Steve Labrash''</small><br />
Steven Labrash got his role on ''Lost'' by joking around with the cast and crew. They were scouting the [[Portal:Locations|location]] which was the anatomy lab at the John A. Burns School of Medicine [[University of Hawaii]], where Steven is the director of the anatomy lab. Initially Steven didn't like the idea of ''Lost'' filming at the medical school but after adjustments were made to address his concerns, he decided he not only wanted to cooperate, but also wanted to get on the show if possible.
While approximately 15-20 of ''Lost'' production crew were doing a walk-through of the anatomy lab, Steven joked with the director telling him "you know for authenticity's sake, you should use me, I AM A MORGUE EMPLOYEE." One of the directors, looking at Steve's pale complexion, mentioned "this scene is supposed to be in Miami, you are very pale to play someone from Miami". Steve rebuffed, "I'm a
morgue attendant, we never get tan because we never see the sun, like I said, authenticity". The cast and crew all laughed.
