After several long months, Evangeline reappears and announces on her Instagram account that she will participate in GO Gala as she has done before, although this time she will do so virtually for Covid-19 reasons. Exciting right?
She will be participating in the event this Saturday, October 24, to help raise funds and thus help vulnerable children who need it in this difficult time that the world is going through.
Everyone can see it since it is free, but they have to register in advance here.
Recently Evangeline attended the gala held by the Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics (FAST). Check the gallery to see all the photos, which were published by Evangeline in her instagram account, with the following message:
Angelman Syndrome is genetic disorder that is said to mainly impact the nervous system of those born with it, but how it effects the LIVES of those impacted by it is impossible to understate. I was so blessed and honoured to spend an evening meeting parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, scientists, and donors who are on the verge of genetic breakthrough to possibly CURE the disorder. Sunday night had me laughing, crying and feeling immeasurably grateful for the health and well-being of my own little sons. Counting my blessings today.
Last night was the at long last World Premire of Avengers: Endgame at the Los Angeles Convention Center. All the past and current stars of the MCU were in in attendance for the big event. Evangeline attended flawless in a scarlet red suit, a clingy plunging black vest top and a pair of black heels. The HQ photos are now in the gallery. Enjoy them!
This week, Evangeline attended the Ajyal Youth Film Festival in Doha! She shared the news with us through this post on her instagram, where she wrote: “So lucky to be on the #redcarpet next to these two absolutely gorgeous people @alremaihia and @grendizer who run the @ajyalfilm festival where children come from all over the world to experience impeccable film making, and more importantly to witness and experience each other and each other’s cultures. I’m so honoured to be a part of this beautiful event and hope that in some small way my presence here could make the experience more exciting for some of the kids. I’m quickly learning that children’s film festivals are my favourite part of being an actor. Thank you @ajyalfilm for this opportunity. #forthekids #ajyal2018”.
The sixth Ajyal Film Festival, the annual cinema event hosted by Doha Film Institute (DFI) at Katara – the Cultural Village, continues to drive dialogue between international film talents and young filmmakers, with Ant-Man and the Wasp star Evangeline Lilly and Karim Ainouz, the director of Central Airport THF (Germany, France, Brazil/2018), among others, to interact with audiences and media.
A guest of honour at Ajyal Film Festival, Evangeline was down-to-earth and endearing to fans. Reflecting her own outlook towards life, she said: “I always try to demystify the idea of glamour and show the real person. We are all the same.”
Evangeline said that being friendly “helped me get jobs”. “Nobody likes a snob; directors and producer want someone they like to work with. Further, it helps me to create my characters because I meet and interact with so many people from different walks of life and cultures. There is nobody I wouldn’t say hello to. To be a good actor, you have to know people,” she said.
Evangeline revealed that she will appear in a new series soon without divulging more details. She said, “Television was an incredible commitment. But that said, there is a TV show on the horizon. The reason why I finally decided to go back to television is because I now have two children and the life of an actor is like the life of a gypsy, and very difficult on family. I was looking for some stability.”
Evangeline said the opportunity to interact with Ajyal jurors was incredible. “I love the opportunity to speak to kids and love answering their questions. But there is always a small part of me that is frustrated. Because more than answering their questions, I want to ask them questions, especially here because I know little of the Middle East. The most fascinating thing is how (the Ajyal Jurors) are into the film industry. I didn’t know there was a film industry in Qatar before I was invited to Qatar.”
On Saturday night, Evangeline attended Go Campaign’s annual gala in Los Angeles, which aims to help orphans and vulnerable children. Several photos have already been added to the gallery. Go enjoy them!
On September 1, Evangeline attended the Fan Expo Canada, and during the panel, in addition to talking about her series of children’s books “The Squickerwonkers”, she also spoke about women’s empowerment and her new film “Ant-Man and The Wasp”, among other things. Look at the video below.
In a previous telephone interview she also spoke about female empowerment and said the following:
“It’s very exciting for me, because suddenly I have a huge uptick in the number of fans who are female,” the 39-year-old, who plays Hope van Dyne/Wasp in the film, said in a recent phone interview from her home in Hawaii to promote her appearance at Fan Expo Canada this weekend.
“It’s great. Historically, I’ve had a more predominantly male fan base and I’ve always thought, ‘How do I get women? I want the women!’” she said with a laugh. “God bless the men, but you get tired of making pictures where you’re attractive and you want to just make pictures where you’re you.”
I added some great photos that have just come to light. The images are from the Giffoni Film Festival, event held on July 20, 2018 in Giffoni Valle Piana, Italy. Go to the gallery and enjoy!
“I was really struck by Giffoni’s story. The charming story of an eighteen-year-old boy who decides to bring films into his town and promote them among the children who have never been to a movie theatre”
