Stars Discovered by Chance

3 of 18

Evangeline Lilly

All it took was one twist of fate for this "Lost" star to be found. Lilly spent her young adulthood doing missionary work in the Philippines before becoming a flight attendant with Air Canada in order to pay for school. One day, while walking around Kelowna, British Columbia, Lilly was approached by a Ford Modeling agent. She initially declined the offer to model, but retracted her answer after learning how much money she would make. A few small acting gigs later, Lilly found herself stranded on the "Lost" island. Since then she's appeared in two "Hobbit" films and the Hugh Jackman movie "Real Steel." You can currently catch her on the big screen in Marvel's "Ant-Man."-XFINITY Entertainment Staff
