At the climax of the third season of "Alias," her character, Lauren Reed, was mortally wounded by multiple gunshot wounds to the body and plummeted down a man made well used to unearth Rambaldi. But according to Sci-Fi Wire, Melissa George might be making a comeback.
"I think she should come back," George said. "She got shot a lot. Like, a lot of times. Like, more than any regular person can take. But it was nothing in the heart. [It was in] the arms. And I played it like it didn't hurt her so I could come back. Like, maybe she had a vest on or something. They're like, 'Can you just look like you're in pain?' I'm like, 'Nope. I refuse.'"
Season 4 of the spy drama is currently in production, and is continuing without several characters this season. In addition to George's character, Julian Sark (David Anders) will not be a regular, but will return on a recurring basis for six episodes, including a couple of Sark-centric ones.
George also said she believes that the fans of the show will miss the dynamic which developed between the characters last season. George's character, who was introduced at the beginning of the third season of "Alias," was met with a mixed reception. Some fans of the Sydney/Vaughn relationship hated her, whilst others believed her introduction -- and the subsequent introduction of a love triangle -- gave a breath of life to what was nothing more than a dull office-romance, set against the backdrop of the CIA.
"Where's the blond assassin ruining their love life?" George joked. "It's like, don't you want the Aryan-looking blondies in the leather?"
The actress also commented that series creator J.J. Abrams, as well as several other cast members, are eager for her to return for a guest role at some point in the future, is scheduling permits of course.
"Alias" will return to ABC in January, with all 20 episodes of the season shown once a week.
