Lea acerca de Evangeline Lilly en Español
Stealing Sinatra has always been interested in social causes. Since age 14, she has been involved in everything from children's causes to missionary work in the Philippines, but she always dreamed of becoming an actress. When she was approached by the Ford modeling agency in Kelowna, British Columbia, she turned down Ford's first offer, electing instead to pursue charitable causes.
Evangeline worked as an airline hostess and waitress for a brief time. She eventually agreed to a modeling contract in order to pay for her tuition and receive her international relations degree from the University of British Columbia.
Since starting her acting/modeling career, she has appeared in episodes of TV shows like Smallville (2002), Tru Calling (2003) and the miniseries Stephen King's Kingdom Hospital (2004). Evangeline also appeared as a model in the 2003 film Stealing Sinatra and as a corpse in 2005's The Long Weekend.
Evangeline is now the star of the sci-fi television drama Lost, which scored a huge hit for ABC, and she was named the second sexiest woman in the world by Maxim magazine in 2005. Evangeline also has many other talents: she speaks French fluently and enjoys outdoor sports such as ice skating, snowboarding, kayaking, and rock climbing.
