Biography

Levelheaded and unimpressed with stardom, Evangeline Lilly rose to overnight fame as Kate Austen on the television phenomenon, "Lost" (ABC, 2004-2010). An unlikely actress to begin with - she cared more about humanitarian work and only pursued modeling and acting to pay her college tuition - the Canadian Lilly leveraged her TV superstardom into small roles in important films like the Oscar-winning "The Hurt Locker" (2009) and enjoyed the freedom to pursue her own writing and charitable interests. Fans of the socially-conscious globetrotter applauded her commitment to an active, engaged life off camera - including a longtime relationship with "Lost" co-star Dominic Monaghan - but also hoped she would find time to work in the occasional acting role, as the actress remained a charismatic onscreen presence.
