Bio

Evangeline Lilly is a Canadian actress best known for her role as Kate Austen in the television drama series Lost, from 2004-2010.

She was discovered on the streets of a British Columbia town by the Ford Modeling Agency. Although she initially declined a modelling contract, she later revised her decision to help pay her way through university.

On the heels of her role in Lost, she was voted one of the Breakout Stars of 2004 by Entertainment Weekly.

Additionally, she came in second on Maxim's Hot 100 list of 2005, and recently placed eighth in the FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2006.

After appearing in a few commercials, she chose to give up acting and focus on studying. A couple of years later, a friend urged her to give acting another shot and soon thereafter she landed the non-speaking role of a corpse in both an episode of Stephen King's Kingdom Hospital and the film The Long Weekend.

Lilly landed her first speaking role on Lost. For the role, she was nominated for a Teen Choice Award for Choice Actress in a Drama Series and also received a 2007 Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in a Drama Series.

Lilly filmed her first major lead role in the feature film Afterwards, starring opposite Romain Duris and John Malkovich. She also starred in Summit Entertainment's The Hurt Locker.

Lilly is wholeheartedly devoted to philanthropy, traveling and gaining a higher knowledge of various cultures around the world. During her college years, she founded and maintained a world development and human rights committee.

She has spent three weeks living under a grass hut in the jungles of the Philippines, and has been a volunteer for children's projects since the age of 14.

Fluent in French, Lilly loves reading, writing, painting, music, nature, staying active, learning, tea and travel.
