  • Shannon Rutherford is a fictional character played by Maggie Grace on the ABC drama television series Lost, which chronicles the lives of the survivors of a plane crash in the South Pacific. Shannon is introduced in the pilot episode as the stepsister of fellow crash survivor Boone Carlyle. She is a series regular until her funeral in "What Kate Did". For most of her time on the Island, she is unhelpful and spends much of her time sunbathing. She forms a relationship with another survivor from the plane crash, Sayid Jarrah. Shannon is accidentally shot by Ana Lucia Cortez who mistakes her for an Other. During the casting process, she was compared to Paris Hilton. Naveen Andrews, who plays the character Sayid on the show, had the idea of encouraging the writers to write a romantic relationship between his character and Shannon into the story. Critics found her to be a largely unsympathetic character until only shortly before her death. Nonetheless, Grace received a Teen Choice Award nomination for her role as Shannon.
