NEW YORK – Michelle Rodriguez is getting "Lost" full-time.
The 26-year-old actress will join the cast of the stranded-on-an-island drama when production resumes for its second season, ABC announced Monday.
In a flashback scene on the season finale, Rodriguez played Ana-Lucia Cortez, a passenger on doomed Oceanic flight No. 815, who flirted with Jack Shepard, played by Matthew Fox, at an airport bar in Sydney, Australia.
Rodriguez first caught the attention of movie audiences as a boxer in 2000's "Girlfight." She's also starred in "S.W.A.T.," "Resident Evil," "Blue Crush" and "The Fast and the Furious."
ABC didn't specify what Rodriguez's role would be when the show returns, but many "Lost" theorists believe passengers in the back half of the plane, where Cortez said she was sitting, are alive and haven't been discovered.
"Lost" will air Wednesdays (9 p.m. ET) this fall.
