A breakthrough in Lilly's career was the work in the series "Lost." The actress played one of the main and memorable roles - the girl Kate Austin, who survived the plane crash along with other heroes.

Matthew Fox and Evangeline Lilly
Interestingly, the actors were only given the script for the next episode of the series. And since there were many deaths in the serial film, the stars did not know who would be left without work in the future.
The partners on the set of Lilly for a long time were Matthew Fox, Josh Holloway, Terry O’Quinn, Ian Somerhalder and others. It is noteworthy that the hero Ian quickly died in the series, but the character was so fond of the public that the creators periodically returned Boone Carlisle during all seasons in flashbacks. Naturally, Somerhalder appeared in the last series.

The movies themselves are the prequels of The Lord of the Rings.
Lilly played the role of forest elf Tauriel, who belongs to the ranger, but the girl’s social status is lower than Arwen (Liv Tyler) and Legolas (Orlando Bloom). It is noteworthy that this character is not in the original trilogy of books. But they decided to add an elf girl to the paintings in order to dilute the scenario in which men dominate the female character.

In 2008, the actress starred in two films at once - “Subsequently” and “The Lord of the Storm”, and already in 2011 the picture “Living Steel” was released, in which Evangeline played the main role.
