This week, we’re celebrating an island-bound actress, a twin pair of Frankensteins and a “Monster”-ous Hollywood talent.
Evangeline Lilly (August 3): Straight off of Oceanic Airlines Flight 815 comes actress Evangeline Lilly, who plays savvy fugitive Kate Austen on ABC’s smash-hit series “Lost.” The Canadian actress — or “Freckles,” as Sawyer affectionately calls her — is a favorite amongst “Lost” fans, and is sure to find success after the show ends next year.
As “Lost” begins its final descent, Lilly’s Kate faces the final decision between romantic interests Dr. Jack Shephard (Matthew Fox) and James “Sawyer” Ford (Josh Holloway). No matter which coupling wins out — even though Skate is clearly fate — I just hope that Kate’s character finds a satisfying conclusion.
Ten years have passed since “Big Daddy,” so the opportunity for a check-in sequel seems to have passed — but who are we kidding, we’d wait another ten years for the Sprouse brothers to reprise a grown-up version of Frankenstein.
Theron is set to play a decidedly prettier role in a nonetheless unsightly world in “Florence of Arabia.” The actress portrays the titular Florence as she advocates equal rights for men and women in a fictional Middle Eastern country — a role that could have Oscar written all over it.
Come back next week for another installment of Birthday Bash!
