It is well known that Evangeline Lilly, who rose to instant fame when she appeared as Kate on Lost, isn’t too comfortable with the massive attention she gets from the media and fans.
Now azcentral.com are reporting that Evangeline may be considering to ‘quit’ Lost if the fans don’t give her more privacy.
“I am an incredibly private person, and it’s so exhausting to me that everywhere I go people know me or think they know me. If I could act and make the income I make and be anonymous, I would never want to leave the job.”
First of all, I don’t think she can simply quit and leave Lost since all the actors are under contract. If she decides to leave, she would have to refuse renewing her contract and then Kate would be killed or otherwise removed from the story before the contract runs out.
Second, I am a bit surprised that she auditioned for the part if she wanted to avoid attention, but I understand that sometimes the attention can be a bit too much.
It would be sad if any actor/actress felt the need to leave the show because of the fans, but I’m sure that all of our readers are the nice kind of fans, right guys?
