Lost‘s Lilly plans break from acting

Evangeline LillyLost star Evangeline Lilly says she wants to take a break from acting after the final season is completed next year.  “I’d love to have more time to devote to hobbies,” Lilly told Celebs On Sunday magazine. “But the reality is when you open a door, there is no sense in closing it — so I would never say I’ll never act again. But it’s definitely not my priority. Before the show I had intended to be some sort of humanitarian worker. I’ll definitely have more time to pursue more of that.” However, humanitarian work isn’t her only goal — she aspires to sell her writing, saying, “Writing is my first and foremost passion, I can’t stop writing. I write all the time. So I want to try to either publish something I’ve written or sell a script or work on that.” The fifth season premiere of Lost airs tonight.

    I watched last night and I was a little “lost” as I missed all of Season 4. So, I gotta rent that and catch up fast.

    Kate so so so belongs with Sawyer. (lucky girl!)

I love all the actors, It is so very well done, and I followed it with no problem at all, untill, I watched the premier or season 5. I feel a bit lost. LOL. I would love to watch a re-peat of that, but, I couldn’t tape it.
