Actor Naveen Andrews has slammed the makers of TV series Lost for axing Dominic Monaghan from its cast - branding the move "brutal". The actor, who plays Sayid Jarrah on the hit programme, was left devastated following Monaghan's shock departure last year (07). And Andrews is still confused as to the exact reason why Monaghan - who played Charlie Pace - was written out of the series. He says, "They have their reasons but for the life of me I can't understand why they got rid of Dominic. "You build up relationships over time there and it's tough when someone leaves suddenly - It's quite brutal."
