With only a few forgettable bit parts under her belt, Evangeline Lilly was a virtual unknown when she landed the role of 'Kate Austen' on Lost in 2004. It would be easy to assume the freckle-faced cutie pie is an all-American gal, but she also speaks French and was born in Fort Saskatchewan, Canada (on August 3, 1979). Evangeline was spotted by Ford modeling agency -- and at 5' 5" (sort of short for a model), they wanted her anyway. She' a total earth ball: into rock climbing, kayaking and lived in a grass hut in the Philippines as a human rights volunteer. A seeming strong sense of self (or perhaps just a prude), she turned her nose up at a partial nude scene on the popular J.J. Abrams show. She has also been on-again-off-again with costar Dominic Monaghan (they were said to have rekindled their romance in 2008) and seems to be permanently off-again with the paparazzi, who are often treated to Evangeline's lovely middle finger.
