Evangeline Lilly was born on August 3, 1979 in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta. Evangeline is an Canadian actress. Evangeline Lilly’s combination of irresistible, playful charm and natural talent is earning her a reputation as one of the most promising young actresses in Hollywood. When Lilly was cast as Kate in Lost, her main concern was acquiring a work visa to enter the United States. With production literally days away and no news about the visa, casting directors were forced to grudgingly begin re-casting the role of Kate. After nearly 20 auditions, Lilly’s work visa was approved/cleared but she arrived on set a day late. Her salary in 2004 for Lost was $80,000 per episode. On the heels of her role in Lost, she was voted one of the Breakout Stars of 2004 by Entertainment Weekly. Although Lilly placed eighth in the FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2006 and initially placed second on Maxim’s Hot 100 list of 2005, she slipped to #67 in Maxim’s 2006 list. On December 14, 2006, Lilly was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Lead Actress-Drama.
