While in college, she worked as a waitress, did “oil changes and grease jobs on big rig trucks”, and worked as a flight attendant for Royal Airlines to pay for her tuition.

Evangeline Lilly Career
Her acting career began when she was discovered by a Ford Modeling Agency agent while walking the streets of Kelowna, British Columbia. She took the agent’s business card but did not immediately pursue acting. She eventually called and the agency landed her several roles in commercials and non-speaking parts in the TV shows Smallville and Kingdom Hospital.
She was encouraged to audition for Lost by a friend and she did not expect to get cast. As the secrecy campaign prevented the auditioning actors from accessing the full script, forcing them to read short scenes and only know the basic premise of people surviving a plane crash on a tropical island, she thought Lost would “at best be a mediocre TV show”. Around 75 women auditioned for the part of Kate Austen. The character almost had to be recast, as Lilly had trouble acquiring a work visa to enter the United States. Lost ran for six seasons from 2004 to 2010. It was one of the top shows on ABC’s primetime schedule during its run. She appeared in 108 of the show’s 121 episodes, and her character, Kate Austen, was the show’s female lead.
In 2010, she stated her intention to focus on children’s book writing and on feature film roles. On May 11, 2010, she announced on The View that she places writing and being a mother as top priorities, but she likes acting as a day job and she will continue acting when possible. In 2011, she appeared as Bailey Tallet in Real Steel. Despite having turned down a number of film offers, she traveled to Los Angeles to get the part after director Shawn Levy sent her the script.
She was cast as the Mirkwood elf Tauriel in Peter Jackson’s three-part adaptation of J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit in 2012. She had been a fan of Tolkien’s books since she was 13,underwent training for swordplay and archery, as well as in the Elvish language for the role.In 2015, she played Hope van Dyne in the superhero film Ant-Man.In October of the same year, it was announced that Lilly would reprise her role in the sequel, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Marvel’s first movie to feature a female hero in the title.
