Fern was a DHARMA Initiative worker.
On the Island
Fern was seen helping Pierre Chang while he was filming the Arrow orientation film. ("Because You Left") She may have been killed along with other members of the DHARMA Initiative in the Purge, or she may have been evacuated off the island sometime between 1977 and The Purge.
- The actress who portrayed Fern also portrayed another DHARMA member, Alice.
- Although both Fern and Alice were portrayed by the same actress, their hair was a little bit different between the two appearances.
- There is another woman named "Fern" who works in the DHARMA Initiative. She was killed in the Purge. (Lost: The Complete Third Season (DVD))
- Both actresses are actually wearing the same uniform as told on this website by the actress playing the scene with Pierre Chang:
I'm Alice. They made me my own Dharma outfit, with my real name sewn onto it once they decided to use me often and did my measurements for the costume. Anyway, I was only Fern when they grabbed me last minute and shoved me into a outfit that fit so I could do the Dr. Chang scene. (Director changed his mind last minute about who he wanted to work that scene, and I was already out of costume and headed home when they decided to make me Fern and film that scene in 5-01.) In season 3, I had another name, have no memory what it was (not Alice or Fern- obviously the Fern girl was dead, and I ended up in her dress for the Chang scene) but I was visible in the orientation scene. I filmed about half the episodes last year and am visible in most of any Dharma stuff, in my Alice outfit, though the "Alice" moniker never made it on screen, I guess. My husband, by the way, was Rex the physicist, and played Dr. Chang's assistant in the rabbit experiment in season 4 finale (he wore glasses and pushed the lever to open the time travel door.)
