Evangeline Lilly says she is stepping away from acting

Lost Alumna Evangeline Lilly said she’s ready to quit acting — for now. In an Instagram post, Lily wrote in part: “Stepping away from what seems like the obvious choice (wealth and fame) can feel scary sometimes, but stepping into your dharma replaces fear with accomplishment. I may return to Hollywood one day, but for now, this is “It’s where I belong. A new season has arrived, and I’m ready… and I’m happy.”

“I am full of joy and contentment today as I live my vision,” Lily added.

The post was accompanied by a video of the actress recorded on the set of ABC Al Dhaherah LostWhich spanned from 2004 to 2010. In the video (watch it below), Lily answers a question about where she sees herself 10 years in the future. “I’m terrified to admit this to the rest of the acting world,” she said at the time, “but ideally 10 years from now, I’d like to be a retired actress and I’d like to have a family…and maybe…impact people’s lives in a more humane way.” .

The post also includes a clip of poet Maya Angelou reflecting on being “in process” and the inevitability of death. “If you know that’s the big scary thing…you might as well try to do some other cool stuff.”

Lily commented that Angelou “perfectly” expressed how she felt about life.

Lily most recently starred in 2023 Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantum Obsession, reprising her Marvel Cinematic Universe role as Hope Van Dyne/The Wasp. She began her career in the early 2000s and also has credits that include Pain locker And The hobbit films The ruin of Smaug And Battle of the Five Armies.
