Lost: Evangeline Lilly staying on board

Don’t believe the rumours: Evangeline Lilly isn’t leaving Lost after all. So there.

With season five of Lost now well underway, and around a third of the way through, it was inevitable that speculation and rumours would start to filter through. And thus that’s what happened, when tittle tattle was suggested that Evangeline Lilly, who plays Kate in the show, would be leaving in advance of its ending.

Now Kate has always struck us as one of the major characters of the piece, not least because she’s one of the Oceanic six, and the thought of her nipping off before the show’s eventual ending in May next year was a bit of an odd one.

That’s why, we suspect, it’s not taken too long to nip this particular rumour in the bud. According to the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, Lilly is very much on board to the bitter end, and she has a contract with ABC that will take her through to the end of season six. Furthermore, she then went on E! and was quoted as saying, “I am very happy on Lost and have no reason to look anywhere else for a home.”

So that’s that, then. Unless you’re a bit of a conspiracy theorist and suspect she still might get bumped off before the end…
