She has worked as a flight attendant, waitress, and completed oil changes on big rigs before doing commercials and extra work on film sets to earn money for University.
She came to prominence for her starring role as Kate Austen in the ABC series Lost (2004–10), for which she won a Screen Actors Guild Award and received a Golden Globe Award nomination.
As the secrecy campaign prevented the auditioning actors from accessing the full script, forcing them to read short scenes and only know the basic premise of people surviving a plane crash on a tropical island – which reminded Lilly of The Blue Lagoon – she thought Lost would "at best be a mediocre TV show".
Around 75 women auditioned for the part of Kate Austen.
I needed someone who you believed had grown up in a man's world.
Bailey needed to have a strength and a toughness that was not at the expense of her being womanly." The character, which does not appear in the original book by Tolkien, was created by Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh as the head of the Elven guard who wields a bow and two daggers as weapons.
I had to learn that, I used to think, 'I'm being fake,' but you know what?
Lilly was encouraged to audition for Lost by a friend and she did not expect to get cast.Even if you're unhappy, just pretend that you're happy.Eventually, your smile will be contagious to yourself. Before she made it big in "Lost," Evangeline Lily was hawking phone dating in this cheesy commercial for "Live Links." I love how the women in these ads are always casually sexy and tossing their hair around while laughing hysterically. 10 posts in this thread Posting Rules Anonymous users may post new threads Anonymous users may post replies Logged in users may post new threads Logged in users may post replies Post attachments is off Post editing is off All times are GMT 1.
