EVANGELINE LILLY: “When LOST Finished, I swore I’d never act again”

Articulate and outspoken, Evangeline Lilly, 38, is momentarily – and uncharacteristically – lost for words. The actress, soon to be seen in Marvel superhero sequel Ant-Man and The Wasp (as the eponymous black-and-yellow irritant), is temporarily tongue-tied by that most difficult of questions: what is the point of a wasp?

“The truth is, I have no idea,” she laughs, after a pause. “And now that I think about it, what do they do? Maybe its purpose is just to be elegant and badass!”

If that is the case, and it’s as good a description as any, then it’s tempting to say she’s been extremely well cast. Elegant? Tick. Since her breakthrough role as Kate Austen in equal parts brilliant and bamboozling drama Lost in 2004, she has been regularly included in ‘Most Beautiful’ lists. Her subsequent turn as ethereal elf Tauriel in The Hobbit trilogy did little (despite the ears) to deter her admirers. And badass? Well, she certainly doesn’t follow the conventional notions of what an A-list Hollywood actress should say or do.

“I still look around this industry and see so much conformity, and I see myself conforming,” she says with a mixture of laughter and resignation. “It pisses me off when I realise I gave up fighting. They wear you down and you say, OK, I’ll be who you want me to be.”
