And Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, native Evangeline Lilly has been at the heart of it along the entire journey. It’s been a heck of a ride for Lilly, who started her career as a model and had just a handful of uncredited, non-speaking roles in movies and TV shows before she uttered her first on-screen words as Kate Austen.
In the six years, the 30-year-old actress has become one of the more recognizable faces on primetime television, and she talked this week about how emotional the end of the show will be at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour in Pasadena, Calif.
“Walking out here and watching that montage, I was saying to my castmates, ‘I am going to cry like a baby when this show ends,’ ” Lilly said, according to a report in the Edmonton Sun. “It has been so intense. For it to come to an end is going to be life-changing.”
