More "Are They Leaving?" Rumors: Evangeline Lilly - Featured


Another day, another "someone is leaving the show" rumor.


Recently, we've had:

Chad Michael Murray/Hilarie Burton from One Tree Hill (maybe true)

Half of the Grey's Anatomy Cast (maybe true)

Steve Carell from The Office (not true)

Nicolette Sheridan from Desperate Housewives (true)

Dana Delaney from Desperate Housewives (pure speculation)

Balthazar Getty from Brothers and Sisters (true, for now)


And now the latest: Evangeline Lilly from Lost?!


Yeah, probably not, but it's the latest in a growing list of internet rumors. Zap2it.com reported this morning that Lilly was seen auditioning for Fall pilots. ABC and Lilly's rep have since denied it, but the normally reliable zap2it is sticking by their story.


Entertainment Weekly reports a big fat "False" as well and reminds us that Lilly is officially contracted through the end of Lost's 6th season. Source.


I say...maybe everyone's right? Who says Lilly isn't just guest starring in a pilot? Appearing in a pilot doesn't mean she's quitting Lost, now does it?

Everyone could indeed be right in a different way. Before this season of Lost we were told there would only be 33 episodes left in total of season 5&6. It started late even though they were filming since last May (think I heard Matthew Fox say that on Radio1 in the UK last year) so could it be that they'll be finished filming Lost by then and she's just making sure she gets a new show quickly?
I mean the producers had so much time they were even able to swap 5.06 and 5.07 around and edit it different. Yeah, I think they've got a film plan for 33 episodes in one block...which could be close to ending soon. Smart move Miss Lilly.

There's no way she'll be leaving Lost until it's over. There's only one season left. Maybe she's lining up stuff for in two more years. Who knows, but I would be very, very shocked if she leaves the show before it's official ending.

Pilots can take a long time to set up. I completely agree, I think she's just covering her bases so she won't always be "Kate"

I don't see her being typecast as kate at all....i figure after lost is over i'll just forget she exists. She's not exactly a driving force in her current show and really doesn't add anything but a sex cushion to sawyer and jack. When she isn't just being a sex cushion, she's pms' ing all over the place and throwing around unjustified hate at people and doing a shitty job of explaining why she is acting the way she does.
Now it looks like they are writing her in as a pain in the ass again....she probably came back to the island to get back with sawyer to piss jack ...off.
