IMDb profile

Evangeline Lilly plays the role of Kate Austen.



Evangeline Lilly was born a native Canadian (and is fluent in French). Her father is a home economics teacher, and her mother worked as a cosmetician and ran a daycare center. She has two sisters.

Lilly attended the University of British Columbia where she attained a degree in international relations. She has been a fervent volunteer for children's projects since the age of 14, and she founded and ran a world development and human rights committee at her university.

Prior to her starring role on Lost, Lilly worked as an extra on film sets to help pay her University tuition. She also starred in episodes of Tru Calling, Dead Like Me and Smallville, Kingdom Hospital, and in several films, including Stealing Sinatra. However, her first big break did not come until Lilly was "discovered" by Lost producers for the role of Kate. Ironically, Evangeline was almost not able to work with the cast because she had problems obtaining a work visa, and got the visa after filming for the "Pilot, Part 1" had already begun.

She is engaged to co-star Dominic Monaghan and they were to wed in the summer of 2007, but they broke up in autumn of 2007, the couple eventually got back together in April 2008.[1]

Early on the morning of December 21, 2006, a day before the Lost cast broke for Christmas vacation, Lilly's rental house in Hawaii was destroyed in a fire. There were no injuries as she was at work at the time, her two housemates (one of them a Lost crew member) were also not home.
