While Evangeline Lilly brought lots of joy to the countless fans who watched her on the cult hit series Lost, she has recently admitted that the experience brought her to a very “dark time.” Read on for more.
You could almost hear the disappointment from fans across the globe whose hearts were shattered after Lost aired its final episode in 2010.
But for Evangeline, who played Kate on the show, it seemed like a weight had been lifted off her shoulders.
In this week’s issue of People magazine, she admitted, “I was never enamored by the idea of fame.”
The Ant-Man and the Wasp star went on to say that she went through “a pretty dark time” coping with being a celebrity and in the public eye. So much so that she planned on retiring after Lost. She even moved to Hawaii, where she still lives with her partner Norman Kail and their two sons.
The 38-year-old, who described herself as “reclusive” in a recent issue of Shape magazine, revealed that after being off the grid, she’s now “made peace” with being a public figure and “embraces all the things that made me uncomfortable.” She added, “I had to find a place in which I could be happy. And now I very much am.”
