Lost star Evangeline Lilly has shocked fans with the announcement that she plans to quit acting once the desert island drama ends this spring.
The actress, who also starred in the Oscar-favored The Hurt Locker, wants to “drop off the radar” when the show wraps in May. In fact, Evangeline may not return to Hollywood at all. She insists she definitely won’t be planning any more acting roles for the foreseeable future.
She tells Eonline.com: “Acting is something I appreciate, and I think it’s been an amazing experience, but I’m not passionate about acting the way you probably should be to call yourself an actor. I want to have some quiet space… and enjoy a little bit of normalcy again (before deciding what’s next).”
Lilly says her first retirement will involve a charity tour to Rwanda.
The final season of Lost premieres tonight.
