This is actress Evangeline Lilly getting cheeky while signing autographs at ABC’s season six premiere party for “Lost.” The festivities were held at Waikiki beach and drew an estimated 15,000 fans (click here to see gallery).
Lilly plays fugitive Kate Austin on the show, but you probably already knew that. What you may not know is that the 30-year-old stunner plans to retire from acting after “Lost.”
Lilly recently told E! Online:
I love this process so much. I love tellling stories and I love this unbelievable group effort that goes into it and I love the dynamic of what a film does when people watch it, the inspirational qualities of film. So, I have a feeling I will want to have my fingers in the pot somehow and somewhere. I just haven’t found where that is yet.
Acting is something I appreciate, and I think it’s been an amazing experience, but I’m not passionate about acting the way you probably should be to call yourself an actor. I want to have some quiet space. [I want to] drop off the radar a little bit and enjoy a little bit of normalcy again.
Hmm. Contemplating retirement is easy when you’re sitting on a mountain of cash. Let’s hope Lilly has an unemployed boyfriend or secret coke addiction that forces her back to acting, preferably in roles that require plenty of bikinis.
