Leigh Blackmoor is one of the main characters in LOST: The Next Generation, portrayed by Olivia Wilde. After the crash, she started a small friendship with Ned Pilgrim, whom she met and flirted with on the cruise.
Before the IslandEdit
It is mentioned that she took nursing classes, but she never finished them. She was also in a book club. ("Encounter at Far Point")
Leigh was on board the La Mer for unknown reasons. During a dinner, she approached Ned and flirted with him over the topic of sushi. She explained herself as an fan and expert of sushi and tried to have a conversation with Ned before her cell phone rang. Despite the fact that the conversation was going well, Leigh explained she had to take the call.
Though it was unclear as to what the call was about, Leigh was later seen on the front deck of the cruiseship distressed and crying as a result of the conversation. Mats noticed her and approached, offering a smoke as consolation for whatever it was that bothered her. She declined and cleared up her tears. To change the subject, Leigh asked Mats about the book in his hand, "Encounter at Far Point". Mats became mysterious and protective of the book, walking away from her with a polite goodbye.
After Mats left, Leigh noticed a change in the weather and tide. She soon realized and witness firsthand the wreckage of the La Mer. ("Encounter at Far Point")

Zhen assists Leigh in building her own tent, and Zhen notices that Summer is not at her place by the water. Leigh panics, but sees Summer walking down the beach.
