About Evangeline Lilly
Evangeline Lilly was born on 3 August 1979. She is a beautiful, smart, and talented woman and was the lead actress in the television series Lost. When she grew up, she did not really live a life of luxury. The actress shared part of her life experience in an interview and told that she was a broken student living in a shitty part of town, with a rear window taped to a broken car, when someone offered her the role in Lost for a huge amount of money. She said it was worth a sacrifice for a period of time so she could have financial freedom.
Her career continues to climb, and she recently starred in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug in the role of Silvan Elf, Tauriel, in director Peter Jackson’s second part of his trilogy adaptation of the famous novel by J.R.R. Tolkien on the big screen.
Lilly revealed that she was surprised that when she became famous, the number of men approaching her decreased because they thought she would never want to go out with them, when in fact she wanted to have a date because everyone needs someone in their life. Norman Kali, on the other hand, refused to be intimidated by her star status, and today they are a couple.
