Although most of the glossy mags and rags spoke of Evangeline Lilly’s embarrassment, the ‘Lost’ beauty has nothing to be embarrassed about in her counter to Hollywood’s flesh-show habits.
She took a stand and her TV bosses had to re-write the script.
The stunning brunette, who plays bad girl Kate in the hit drama, was determined not to strip naked in front of the cameras.
She told Arena magazine: “When I got the first draft of the pilot episode there was a nude scene in there. So before I got the job I said to JJ (‘Lost’ creator JJ Abrams), ‘You need to know I’m a bit of a prude and nudity is something that I’m going to be adamantly opposed to’.
“When we came to shoot the scene it had been re-written for me to be in a tank top and underwear and I really appreciate that they made it more modest.”
The 26-year-old is engaged to co-star Dominic Monaghan and plans on having children.
