For this week’s Woman Crush Wednesday I’ve chosen Evangeline Lilly. She’s most known for her role as “Kate” on the hit tv show LOST, and most recently in the latest installments of The Hobbit as the elf Tauriel. Lately she’s been writing children’s books called The Squickerwonkers and has been on book tours around the country.
The reason I love Evangeline so much is that she’s very down to earth with her celebrity and doesn’t choose to flaunt it or fall to the “fame.” She was figuratively thrown into the fire when filming LOST because she had never really acted a lead role on a television series before and not only did she have to handle that, but she also had to discover what it was like to be a celebrity, and she chose very wisely. I can’t wait to see her on another tv show again.
