British actor Naveen Andrews has embraced a new pastime since moving to Hawaii for his hit TV show LOST - guitar shopping.

The 36-year-old screen star, who set up home on Oahu last year (04), shuns the array of outdoor pursuits available to him on the surrounding tropical islands, preferring instead to shop for his favourite instrument.

He says, "I don't like hiking, beaches and swimming, but I love going to shops all over the island to buy guitars to add to my collection. It's become an addiction."
