Beautiful Evangeline Lilly has risen to stardom primarily due to her performance in the hit ABC TV show “Lost”. Evangeline plays one of the main characters “Kate”, opposite hunk Matthew Fox.
Evangeline Lilly has blasted socialite Paris Hilton and her party girl pals for living a selfish existence. “Those people couldn’t give a rat’s a*s if somebody was starving in the street next to them.”
The Canadian actress tries to spend as much time away from Tinseltown as possible and prefers to spend her free time relaxing in Hawaii or doing charity work. She says, “(I need to help people or I’d be) no better than the Paris Hiltons of the world, waltzing around with their Louis Vuitton bags and their little dogs.
She was discovered by a Ford agent on the streets of Kelowna, BC. Evangeline rejected the offer first, but later signed with the agency in order to help pay for college tuition.
Evangeline got the role as Kate on “Lost” by sending in an audition tape – show creator Abrams asked her to test for ABC executives in Los Angeles.
