Cast Trivia - L. Scott Caldwell
She was born Laverne Scott, but goes just by her first initial - L. 
She’s the middle of three children, and was raised in Chicago.
In December 1984, she was hailing a cab in NYC when she was struck by a car. Her back was  severely injured and she was unable to work for nearly two years. 
L’s first audition after her recovery was for the Broadway play Joe Turner’s Come and Gone. She got that role and  went on to win a 1988 Best Actress Tony Award for it.
She married John Caldwell in her early twenties, and had a son, named Ominara with him. They divorced in the early 1980s. 
She married Dasal Banks, an artist, photographer and director in 2004. They had planned on just going to Las Vegas for a quick wedding, but took advantage of L’s casting on Lost to wed in Hawaii.
Rose and Bernard’s backstory is largely based on L and John’s relationship. She married John at an older age than most newlyweds, and knew that he had cancer. He passed away in 2005, after only a year of marriage. His ashes are scattered near their wedding location.
She asked to avoid meeting Sam Anderson, who plays Bernard, before their season 2 reunion. When the characters spot each other on the beach, it was actually the first time the actors ever saw each other. L thought this would provide the most genuine emotion for the anticipated scene.
Like most viewers, L was very surprised that Bernard wasn’t black. She’s said that she had been picturing a man similar to her own husband. However, she loves that producers went against this expectation.
Quote:
"Rose was a character of faith, and I  think she has a very positive energy.  People respond to that. The kinds of lives we live, you want to escape  into something that’s better than what we have. Having a character like  Rose that’s always life-affirming, I think made an impact."
