Does FlashForward's scientist hold the secret? (video)

In a new behind-the-scenes featurette for ABC's FlashForward, star Jack Davenport reveals a few secrets about his mysterious character, Lloyd Simcoe. "He will have a fairly central role to play in terms of trying to work out what actually happened," Davenport says.

Simcoe, as you may know, is the only character carried over from Robert J. Sawyer's novel, which inspired the TV show. He's a scientist who may or may not know the secret behind the flash-forwards. And he has a future relationship with the very married Olivia Benford, played by Sonya Walger.

FlashForward airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
