Evangeline Lilly Claims The Hobbit Movies Saved Her From Retiring From Acting8 months ago by Shivane Chandool in Uncategorized
Evangeline Lilly experienced fame and success early on in her acting career as Kate Austen in the ABC series Lost. She also appeared in a few movies like The Hurt Locker and the blockbuster film game appeared as the elf Tauriel in the latter two Hobbit movies.
Evangeline Lilly explained to THR, that she “felt very uncomfortable” when she was being launched into international fame when she joined Lost. After the show ended she acted with Hugh Jackman in Real Steel but once that wrapped up she insisted on retiring.
If Peter Jackson never called Evangeline Lilly to play Tauriel then Lilly may have stuck to her retirement.
