Discovered by a modeling agent in her native Canada, Evangeline Lilly ultimately passed on the catwalk and opted for an acting career. After working briefly as an extra, she was plucked from obscurity and cast as ex-con Kate Austen on ABC's hit island drama Lost. In 2007, she received a Golden Globe nomination for her work on the show. She would parlay her fame into a larger career, appearing in movies like The Hurt Locker, Real Steel, and The Hobbit. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi
