A blog by Jorge Garcia.

So close. And yet so far.

And here I was all proud to have caught up on my fan mail.
When I discovered a familiar looking bag sitting on a chair.
Damn.

Back to work.

Woohoo I'm first! Loving your work Jorge. It's all about the fans for sure.

Bloggerboy said...

And the really weird thing about being first, working in the whole fan thing, of which I am. The probability is that your gonna read this, now thats just equally trippy and awesome! Double woohoo!!

Hyla said...

That is awesome that you keep up with your fans!

Jenea said...

Hi, dear Jorge! I'm third! I send to you a letter too. Have you seen a letter from Jenea- it is me!!!
I send a letter for you on april 25, but I still don't recieve a answer. please, write me in blog!

wharfrat said...

I sent you a letter last year and you answered it. I like the way you listen to your fans. LOST has been a great experience to you (I hope) and it is a great show to us. We fans will miss it when it wraps up this year. Mahalo to you (as they say in Hawaii).

Sara said...

You actually answer fan mail? That's so great! Good for you for appreciating your fans:)

Erin said...

At least you know you're loved!

Jana said...

When you stop receiving fan mail, is the time to worry. Thanks for the blog and being "real".

Marla said...

jorge, awesome jorge.
i would like a blog that says
a) your funniest piece of fan mail
b) your freakiest piece of fan mail
and
c) your favorite piece of fan mail.

i think it would make a great blog. :)

La Pixie said...

I dont send fan letters. maybe I should start?

Davide said...

I agree with Marla, tell us something about funny fan mail :D

(i will write something to you.. i wanted to invite you to my degree party, but it is in Italy and you are busy with all that LOST stuff..)

Angela said...

I won't add to your pile of fan mail, it seems like you have enough of it to keep you more than busy, so I figured I'd post a few things here, just so you know:

(1) Your character on Lost is one of my favorites, and I love that Hurley isn't a "typical" hero. You play him well.

(2) It is refreshing to find out on your blog that you're actually intelligent, interesting, nice, and funny in real life -- not just when writers put words in your mouth to say on screen. It's great when good people become successful.

(3) I feel bad for celebrities who lose a lot of their private, personal lives because of their jobs (the media has gone way too far), but I also get annoyed at celebrities who don't acknowledge that their success is somewhat dependent on people being interested in them. You seem able to strike a balance between enjoying your life like a normal person, while still making your fans feel appreciated and involved.

Best of luck in the rest of Lost and your career afterwards.

Goof said...

:D I like Marla's idea too.
:) And of course I'm curious if you got mine lol.

(((((HUGS)))))

Deeky said...

it's pretty awesome you answer your fan mail at all.

Sgrmac said...

I really appreciate your diligence. You sent my wife a signed photo for my 40th birthday in January - my friends are so jealous! Love your work Jorge - hope you find the last season of LOST as rewarding as any of the past 5 - here looking forward to your "DUDES" in 2010

Topanga said...

I've never written a fan letter to anyone (no offense), but I am a fan and as a fan, even though I don't write letters, I certainly appreciate that you are so very attentive towards yours. Thanks for that.

Joan Crawford said...

I love getting mail! Imagine all the weird crap people send you!

STREET FAME BOOKS said...

i dont think any of us feel bad that you are back to work on the best show in the world! been dying to work on that show for the past few years...this is my last chance!!! i hope you have a wonderful season. i love following your fun blog. we get to vicariously learn about the in focus parts of life. thanks

Marquiwis said...

I guess the first word that you said when you saw the package was...

*drum roll*


DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUDE"

xD

Judy in Indiana said...

Seriously? It is nice that you even try! I am glad you feel compelled to keep up with it, it shows you are a good man. Does anyone else keep up with theirs? I never thought stars/people on TV would write back.

Clare said...

Do you really reply to all your fan mail? I mean personally? If so that's very cool. I remember writing to Kylie Minogue when I was 10 and all I got back was a letter from one of her 'people' I was sooo disappointed!

Stacey B said...

I think that is great that you pay attention to the fans. That makes me a fan.

YELLOWDOG GRANNY said...

how sweet, you answer your own fan mail...your a good kid..

AlYaGotADo said...

I hope you realize how much it means to fans that you care enough to read their mail and even sign things and send them back. It means so much. I understand you and Michael are the best about doing so. Your fans will stick with you wherever you go whatever you do.

God bless,
Pat T.

James Hernandez said...

Jorge,

You totally rock! I was just listening to Metallica "Nothing else matters!"

Dr Mum said...

You must be glad to be "home"
and sleep in your own bed.
Hope someone has watered your plants in the huerto.

Janelle said...

At least you read your fan mail!!! I am so impressed. I can tell you that every fan who has ever sent you fan mail who reads this post of yours is going to be thrilled to death! Much love, Jorge!

Sara said...

I just want to say that I think it's awesome that you actually read/respond to your fan mail. You rock!

ReNaTo UêGa said...

laurenslife said...

Freak said...

These are the letters you answer to your fans? I can't believe it!!
And you are so.. how could I say... a good boy, doing all your homework!

Jorge, I got my autograph from you and want to thank you so much for taking the time to do this for your fans. Sorry, I had two stamps on it and looks like you had to add a 17 cent one. I am sorry, but appreciate it as I didn't know it wasn't enough. Thanks again and you are the best. Love the photo.

Lynne said...

Boy, I am really glad I am not famous. I *hate* going through stacks of mail. But good for you for being so kind to your fans.
