Richard MalkinThe Actor: Nick Jameson

Biography: Richard Malkin is a self-proclaimed fraudulent psychic whom Claire visits several times in 'Raised By Another'. He is the father of Charlotte Malkin, and husband of Joyce Malkin.
He abruptly askes Claire and her friend (Rachel) to leave on the first visit, after he apparently sees a disturbing image. He tells Claire during her second visit that danger surrounds her baby and she must raise the child herself.
He calls Claire several times trying to convince her not to give her baby to adoption and telling her he has an alternate plan - he changes his tance on her needing to raise her baby after 4 months, and ultimately convinces Claire to get on Flight 815 to give her child up for adoption to a couple in Los Angeles who he says are 'good people'. He gave her $6000 and bought her plane ticket.
After his daughter has a near-death experience, Eko comes to investigate the 'miracle' for the church and Malkin claims to be a fraud.

He says that when she fell into the river, her body shut down because of hypothermia, which made her appear dead.
Richard Informs Mr. Eko No Miracle Happened

  • Did Richard know that Flight 815 will crash?
Claire seems to think so, and so does everyone else. He probably saw that she was going to live and figured, "Wow, she could take care of the baby."
