Can you believe it’s been 10 years since Alias ended? Recently, the cast discussed the last episode of the popular ABC series with TVLine.
Created by J.J. Abrams, Alias starred Jennifer Garner as Sydney Bristow, a double agent working for the C.I.A. Victor Garber, Michael Vartan, and Kevin Weisman also starred.
Speaking about the last episode, Garber recalled how emotional it was for everyone:
Every scene with Jennifer was pretty special for me. The hard one was when I was dying, and it was the last scene. The show was over, and that was very difficult for both or us, particularly for her. She was a mess.”
Vartan said the goodbyes on set lasted about “three hours”:
When that show wrapped, the final shot of the final episode… I saw guys who were tough as nails, dolly grips and lighting guys, everyone was just bawling. The goodbyes lasted three hours.”
Garner added that even after 10 years, people still come up to her and say they’re huge Alias fans:
But people who loved it really loved it. Still, after all this time, nothing makes me happier than if somebody says, “I really was anAlias fan.” And I can tell if they really mean it. It just means the world to me.”
