Former Aussie soap star Kimberly Joseph has landed a part on hit TV series Lost after appearing briefly in the pilot episode.

Joseph's character on the show, CINDY, was recently brought back for another round of filming.

She says, "I ended up spending five weeks on set in Hawaii, which was just fantastic. It was a great opportunity and I thoroughly enjoyed it."

The 32-year-old actress was able to mix business and pleasure while in Hawaii and even picked up a new hobby - surfing.

She adds, "I learnt to surf while I was there, it was such a cool time. Hawaii just has these lovely undulating waves, it was the perfect spot for learning."
