A man has been sentenced to up to 30 years in prison after he robbed one of main stars of the TV show Lost.

In October 2005, Ruben Royce, 23, broke into the Hawaii home of actor Josh Holloway.

He held the star and his wife Yessica at gunpoint before stealing their wallets and car.

In February, Royce pleaded guilty to multiple charges including kidnapping, first-degree robbery, burglary and car theft.

Judge Karl Sakamoto claimed Royce was responsible for "a tidal wave of crime" throughout 2005.

Royce's jail term has yet to be finalised but he must serve at least 13 years in prison due to fact he used a firearm and was a repeat offender.

Holloway, 38, plays Sawyer in the popular US series Lost, which is currently in its fourth season.
