Evangeline Lilly – The Accidental Actress

Evangeline Lilly, Kate on LOST, didn’t plan on becoming an actress. In fact, she just stumbled into it while she was studying international relations. She was approached by someone from the Ford modeling agency, literally on the street, to become a model, but she turned it down at the time. Later, when she wanted to earn some extra cash, she went to the Ford agency and signed up as an actress. She played bit parts in various commercials, movies and television shows until she landed on the island with LOST.

You can read more about how Evangline Lilly became an actress in an article by Wanda Lebowitz over at Associated Content.

Mr. Eko in jail briefly

Mike Antonucci, over in the comments section pointed out that yet ANOTHER “LOST” star

has ended up in jail for problems behind the wheel, but has been released, according to the Star Bulletin:

Police arrested Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who plays Mr. Eko 
on the ABC television series "Lost," in Waikiki early Saturday
morning for a traffic violation.

He’s the third person from the cast to be arrested, and the SIXTH to have gotten into trouble for driving problems!

Someone’s got to sit down with these folks and tell them to cool it.

Thanks for pointing me to this article, Mike!
