Evangeline Lilly: Babe of the Week #1 (Jan. 2014)


Evangeline Lilly
(The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Real Steel, "Lost")
Thumbs up= Thumbs down= Thumbs sideways=



Nicole Evangeline Lilly was born in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, Canada. She appeared in a few junior high and high school plays, but once she began attending the University of British Columbia, Lilly embarked upon a more altruistic path: she founded and ran a world development and human rights committee, then went on a mission to the Philippines. Lilly spent three weeks in the island nation living in grass huts in the jungle while assisting with her Christian group's missionary work.

To help pay for her college education, Lilly held a variety of jobs, including flight attendant, waitress and mechanic, but eventually earned degree in international relations. Lilly's best-paying job, however, came when a Ford Modeling agent spotted her on the street and gave her a business card. Resistant at first, Lilly called the agent back after six months and soon found herself doing commercials -- which she despised -- and appearing in television and film projects, mostly as a glorified extra.

Lilly was plucked from semi-obscurity when she auditioned for "Lost," an ambitious TV series about 48 plane crash survivors who end up on an uncharted island and must learn to co-exist together while they unlock the mysteries of the island. After submitting her reel, not hearing back and subsequently moving on with her life, she was shocked when executive producer J.J. Abrams called out of the blue and asked the unknown to audition for ABC executives. Abrams and company so intensely wanted her cast as their female lead that up until the first day of shooting, they worked furiously behind the scenes to speed up her work visa approval process.
The second in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) on an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.

Having survived the beginning of their unexpected journey, the Company continues East, encountering along the way the skin-changer Beorn and a swarm of giant Spiders in the treacherous forest of Mirkwood. After escaping capture by the dangerous Wood-elves, the Dwarves journey to Lake-town, and finally to the Lonely Mountain itself, where they must face the greatest danger of all -- a creature more terrifying than any other; one which will test not only the depth of their courage but the limits of their friendship and the wisdom of the journey itself -- the Dragon Smaug.

I've come full circle on her. I was quite smitten with her when Lost first came to air and grew to hate her character and lost any interest in her over the run of the show. She really is quite beautiful and charming though. Thumbs up.

She frequently says that she lacks a passion for acting and would be happy to give it all up but she seems to be doing quite well. She's been lucky that way. Looks like she's quite sought after and always has been.

I also just found out that she was once up for the role of Wonder Woman.

She's got a bit of an Amazonian look here...

I'll have to abstain on this one. She is too weird with her comments about not wanting people to look at her. I assume she still spends the money she makes as an actress.

Must I be the one to make the inevitable remark: with or without the elf ears?
