Earlier this week, Evangeline Lilly spoke out about her previous experience on ABC's Lost. While she had a lot of positive things to say about her time on the series playing Kate, she also brought up having to film some nude scenes for the network TV show, saying they made her uncomfortable. Over the weekend, the creators behind Lost -- Damon Lindelof, J.J. Abrams, Carlton Cuse and Jack Bender -- released a joint statement addressing Evanveline Lilly's comments. The statement reads:
The creators were responding (via Deadline) to comments Evangeline Lilly had made on a recent episode of the Lost Boys podcast. In the interview, the Ant-Man and the Wasp actress talked about how she was asked to film scenes in various states of undress, and that she felt she "had no choice" regarding the scenes. She also said the experience was mortifying, noting,
The nudity was only one of the complaints Evangeline Lilly had about Kate. She also said that she liked the character early on, but as the series wore on she hated the fact that Kate was always chasing after men on the series. While her complaints extend beyond the nude scenes, it was the nude scenes that stood out and ultimately Lilly's feelings were strong enough that the likes of J.J. Abrams and Carlton Cuse felt they needed to respond. On the bright side for Evangeline Lilly, the actress now has a firm footing in the MCU, which doesn't delve as deeply into mature content. In terms of those movies, we often get to hear her thoughts on things like costumes in the MCU, instead. But if you hoped the actress might be interested in a Lost reboot at any point, you're probably out of luck.
