From Lost to The Hobbit to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Evangeline Lilly has had some of the biggest gigs in the business – and she couldn’t be less ‘Hollywood’ if she tried. As she gears up for the release of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, the actor, writer and producer talks to AMAZING about the path to finding her dharma.

Evangeline Lilly cuts an inconspicuous figure when she arrives at her AMAZING cover shoot in Los Angeles’ Arts District on a sleepy November Sunday. Much like her character Hope Van Dyne (aka Wasp), in Marvel’s Ant-Man franchise, she has mastered the art of going incognito. Dressed casually, with a cap pulled over her pixie cut, Lilly does the rounds introducing herself before heading to hair and makeup. Emerging in a white Jonathan Simkhai pantsuit and flawless glam, she is ready to roll, constantly shapeshifting for photographer Shane McCauley’s lens and pausing only to banter with the crew or chat with the studio owner’s young daughter who is watching intently from the sidelines.

Just over a week later, with Lilly back in her native Canada, we hop on FaceTime and she’s every bit as friendly and unstarry as when we met in person. Splitting her time between Canada and Hawaii with partner Norman Kali and their two sons, the 43-year-old never set out to be a Hollywood star – but the universe had other plans when she was scouted by a modelling agent and fell into acting.

“It’s sort of sad to say, but it’s been a little bit of torture for me; it’s never been a fantastic fit,” says Lilly, with a laugh. “The moment when I decided, ‘Maybe I will go out and do some auditions,’ was driven by a couple things. One was desperation because I was going to university and my family had very little. From the time I was 15 years old I was responsible for everything myself, so I was paying my way through university while paying rent and insurance, and all the things. It was pretty hard. Acting and doing extra work on film sets gave me an incredible amount of flexibility for school, but then also gave me a decent income that could pay the bills and pay my tuition, and get things taken care of.”
Studying International Relations and Political Science at University of British Columbia, Lilly had ambitions to “be an ambassador or a diplomat or a humanitarian”, but with some pushing from her agent and her then-husband – as well as some deep self-reflection – she found herself on a different path.

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.”

Marie Claire Magazine

The actress and activist’s latest performance as Marvel Comic’s kickass superhero Hope Van Dyne in this month’s anticipated movie, The Ant Man and The Wasp proves that women can do more than deliver action sequences and support their male counterparts. Azza Arif flies down to LA to uncover Evangeline’s personal experience of filming Ant Man and The Wasp, her excitement over joining the acclaimed Avengers super squad in its 4th sequel (debuting in 2019), and her undying love for writing.

Let’s face it: in the super fantastic world of cinematic superheroes to date, a woman has never truly taken the lead in a Marvel movie, aside from taking on supporting roles. The comic giant’s output when it comes to movies has been focused largely on developing its male-centric franchises, even in hits like The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy. This month’s debut of Marvel’s latest movie, Ant-Man and the Wasp, changes all that, placing the female protagonist right in the title.

As the sequel to the Ant-Man, the movie dwells into the development of Evangeline Lilly’s character, Hope Van Dyne, who transforms into the Wasp, using a combination of energy blasts and shrinking ability to take down her enemies in a distinct bodysuit. The off-screen Wasp showed up at the studio in something far more casual than her on-screen character; she waltzed in wearing a pinstripe jacket over a plain white tee and loose blue pants. “Show me the outfits!” she exclaimed a little while after she arrived on set, her doe eyes gleamed with excitement. Although she had just flown down from Hawaii where she lives with her family when she isn’t filming, she looked downright luminous and energetic. She scanned through the racks of looks flown in from around the globe just for the shoot, pulling out what she likes and holding them against her toned superhero body. “I have never worn anything as sheer as this dress,” she told me, as she held out a beautiful Dior gown with luxurious embroidery.

Shape USA Magazine

Evangeline appears on the cover of Shape USA Magazine July issue with a wonderful new photoshoot by Max Abadian. She talked to the magazine about her new movie “Ant-Man and The Wasp” and about everything she’s doing, among other things.

When Evangeline Lilly was 20 years old and juggling two jobs to make ends meet, she totaled her car. With no money to replace it and no way to get to work, she entered a bikini contest; first prize was a one-year lease on a pickup truck. The contest was in just two weeks. She had never modeled and considered herself a serious young woman (she studied political science and international relations at the University of British Columbia) and had no clue what was in store. “But I figured that if I was going to do this, I had better win,” she says. So she hit the gym “like a maniac,” self-tanned her alabaster skin into a deep golden tone, subsisted on protein shakes and egg whites—and triumphed. Though she returned to her studies, jobs, and healthy (meaning more sane) eating and exercise habits, to this day she’s not averse to pushing the limits of her body and mind.

“If I had gone on like that for another two years, just imagine how I might have transformed,” Evangeline says.“I could have turned into Spider-Man.” Almost. Currently starring as the Wasp in Ant-Man and the Wasp, she has again whittled herself into superhero shape with a self-designed regimen that includes sprint workouts and sensible eating. But she wants you to know one thing: “I’m wearing a corset! People don’t look like that.”
