A Farmer’s Breakfast, and Then a Wander
By KARA MAYER ROBINSONFEB. 27, 2014
When the actor Michael Emerson, 59, walks around Manhattan, it’s not unusual for people to stop him and ask if he’ll pose for a picture. The television shows “Lost” and, currently, “Person of Interest” have made his spiky hair, thick-rimmed glasses and long sideburns a giveaway. He takes it in stride, even on Sunday, which he designates a day of leisure, reserved for meandering, cultural events and time with his wife, the actress Carrie Preston, 46 — who herself is recognized for her roles in “True Blood” and “The Good Wife” — and her extended family. The couple live with their rescue dog, Chumley, 4, near Columbus Circle.
HELLO, SUNSHINE Sunday is the most domestic day of the week. It’s the day when I feel the least pressure to get anything done. We get up fairly late, I suppose, around 9 o’clock. We throw open the shades that make the room dark and we make the bed. We’re like a synchronized team. We each have a shade to raise.
MAN ABOUT TOWN If the weather’s fair, I like to take Chumley to Central Park and just walk around, do a bit of promenading with him. I dress more formally than a lot of the other boys do. If I’m going to be out and about on the town, I will generally wear a tie and a vest. Not necessarily a jacket.
FANS APPROACH I get recognized. It happens regularly, by two sets of fans: younger people who are fans of “Lost” and older people, oftentimes their parents, who are fans of “Person of Interest.” But now, I think the balance has shifted. Carrie’s so present on so many shows, with her vivid red hair, that people pick her out. Now I’m the one that people, they say, “Excuse me, could you take our picture?”
While his wife is shooting various shows, Emerson remains tied up with everything POI. He’s so involved in the CBS hit, in fact, that it looks like he won’t be able to make another much-awaited reunion–the Lost 10-year reunion–happen.
“I would love to be there, but I can tell you right now that’s it’s not going to work out,” Emerson, who played Ben Linus on Lost, told the journalists attending the New York junket with regards to appearing at a previously scheduled Paleyfest-hosted commemorative event. “It’s in March, I think, and I will be here shooting.”
@PersonInterest: Less than ten minutes until I live tweet – hope i don’t screw up #PersonOfInterest http://twitter.com/PersonInterest/status/438507048519495682/photo/1
