She is the recipient of various accolades including a Screen Actors Guild Award and an MTV Movie Award, and nominations for a Golden Globe Award, a Critics' Choice Movie Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, a Saturn Award, an Empire Award and 10 Teen Choice Awards.

She gained popular acclaim for her first leading role as Kate Austen in the ABC series Lost (2004–2010), which garnered her the nomination for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Drama Series and won her a Screen Actors Guild Award.[3] In 2008, she starred as Connie James in the Academy Award–winning war film The Hurt Locker (2008) and followed it with a role in the science fiction film Real Steel (2011). Lilly is also the author of a children's book series, The Squickerwonkers (2013–present).

Lilly starred as Tauriel in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit film series, appearing in The Desolation of Smaug (2013) and The Battle of the Five Armies (2014). Beginning with Ant-Man (2015), she has portrayed Hope van Dyne / Wasp in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, most recently appearing in Avengers: Endgame (2019).

Early life

Lilly was born in Fort Saskatchewan in Alberta on 3 August 1979. She was raised in British Columbia by her mother, a produce manager, and her father, a home economics teacher. She has both an older sister and a younger sister.[1][4][5]

Lilly graduated from W. J. Mouat Secondary School in Abbotsford, British Columbia; she played soccer and was vice president of the student council.[6] In university, she was a waitress, did "oil changes and grease jobs on big rig trucks", and was a flight attendant for Royal Airlines to pay for her tuition.[6][7][8] Her interest in humanitarian causes and world development led her to major in International Relations at the University of British Columbia.[9]

Career

2002–2003: Early career

Lilly's acting career began when she was discovered by a Ford Modelling Agency agent while passing the time in Kelowna, British Columbia.[10] She took the agent's business card but did not immediately pursue acting. She eventually called and the agency landed her several roles in commercials and non-speaking parts in the TV shows Smallville and Kingdom Hospital.[9][11][12] She was also on a video game news and review show on the gaming television channel G4TV.[13]

2004–2007: Breakthrough with Lost

Lilly in 2007

Lilly was encouraged by a friend to audition for ABC's Lost and did not expect to be cast.[14] The secrecy campaign meant auditioning actors could not see the full script, could read only short scenes, and knew only the basic premise of people surviving a plane crash on a tropical island.[14] It reminded Lilly of The Blue Lagoon, and she thought Lost would "at best be a mediocre TV show".[14] Around 75 women auditioned for the part of Kate Austen. Writer and co-creator Damon Lindelof said that he and executive producer and co-creator J. J. Abrams "...were fast-forwarding through a tape and he saw her and said: 'That's the girl!'"[15][16] The character almost had to be recast, as Lilly had trouble acquiring a work visa to enter the United States.[17] Her application was finally accepted after nearly 20 tries and she arrived in Hawaii for filming one day late.[17]

Lost ran for six seasons, from 2004 to 2010.[18] It was one of ABC's top primetime shows, winning one Golden Globe Award and ten Primetime Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Drama Series in 2005, and was ranked the top-rated TV show of the decade by IMDb.[19] Lilly, who was from 25 to 31 years of age during the show's run, appeared in 108 of 121 episodes, and her character, Kate Austen, was the show's female lead. In 2006 she was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Television Series Drama.[20] Robert Bianco of USA Today praised Lilly's performance in the episode "Eggtown", saying it was almost worthy of a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series nomination.[21] After shooting the final episode of Lost, Lilly said she was considering taking a break from acting to focus on her charity and humanitarian efforts.[22] She told Vulture: "I consider acting a day job—it's not my dream; it's not my be-all, end-all."[23] She says she uses her high-profile roles to further her humanitarian efforts, not to achieve stardom.[24]

2008–2012: Established actress and The Hobbit

In 2008, Lilly appeared in the Academy Award-winning film The Hurt Locker.[25] She and the cast won the Gotham Independent Film Award for Best Ensemble Cast and the Washington D.C. Area Film Critics Association Award for Best Ensemble. She followed this role with a leading part in psychological thriller film Afterwards.[26] In 2010, she stated her intention to focus on children's book writing[27] and feature film roles.[28][29]

On 11 May 2010, Lilly announced on The View that writing and being a mother were her top priorities, but that she liked acting as a "day job" and would continue it when possible.[30] She took a short retirement that year and was not in contact with Hollywood.[31] In 2011, she appeared as Bailey Tallet in Real Steel.[32] Despite turning down a number of film offers, she travelled to Los Angeles to get the part after director Shawn Levy sent her the script.[33] Levy said: "She's magnificent to look at, she's soulful, and she's sexy. I needed someone who you believed had grown up in a man's world. Bailey needed to have a strength and a toughness that was not at the expense of her being womanly."[34]

In June 2010, Lilly announced on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson that she would be writing a children's book and recited several excerpts.[35] She has stated that her literary inspirations are children's book authors such as Roald Dahl and Edward Gorey.[36]

In 2012, Lilly was cast as the Mirkwood elf Tauriel in Peter Jackson's three-part adaptation of J. R. R. Tolkien's The Hobbit.[37][38] The character, which does not appear in the original book by Tolkien, was created by Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh as the head of the Elven guard who wields a bow and two daggers as weapons. Lilly, a fan of Tolkien's books since she was 13,[39] underwent training for swordplay and archery for the role, and in the Elvish language.[39][40] She appeared in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013) and its sequel, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014).[41]

2013–present: The Squickerwonkers

On 18 July 2013, Lilly debuted her book series, titled The Squickerwonkers at the San Diego Comic-Con, where she attended a book signing for the work in addition to providing a reading performance.[42] Lilly has stated that the idea for the book first came to her when she was 14 years old and the foreword of the book was written by director Peter Jackson.[42] The series centres about a young girl who joins a group of characters Lilly described as "this family, the Squickerwonkers, and they're strange outcasts who all have very particular vices".[42] Lilly has stated that future books will each reveal a new Squickerwonker character and unique vice, which will eventually become the undoing of the character.[42][43]

Titan Books released the first title, The Squickerwonkers: The Pre-Show, in 2015 and the limited run book The Squickerwonkers: An Artist's Sketchbook in 2016.[44] The Squickerwonkers, Act 1: The Demise of Selma the Spoiled was self-published by Lilly's Quiet Cocoon Productions with Rodrigo Bastos Didier taking over as illustrator.[45][46] Two further titles were released: The Squickerwonkers, Act 2: The Demise of Lorna the Lazy and The Squickerwonkers, Act 3: The Demise of Andy the Arrogant.[47]

In 2015, she played Hope van Dyne / Wasp in the superhero film Ant-Man, and later reprised the role in Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018).[48][49] Both films received generally positive reviews with Lilly's performance being praised in the latter.[50][51] In 2019, she reprised the role in Avengers: Endgame (2019).[52] She also voiced an alternate version of Hope in the Disney+ animated series What If...? (2021).[53] She voiced van Dyne in the episode "What If... Zombies?!", and received positive reviews.[54]

On 20 December 2006, an electrical problem set fire to Lilly's house in Kailua, Hawaii, destroying the house and all of her possessions while she was on the set of Lost.[81] Though she lost all of her belongings, she said that the fire was "almost liberating" and that she was "in no hurry to clutter up [her] life again".[82]

COVID-19 controversies
