Evangeline Lilly's acting career began after a friend suggested she go on an audition for a role in the show LOST. She landed the job and her career exploded after the show became an instant success.
Now Lilly finds herself immersed in the Marvel Cinematic Universe playing the WASP, the first titular female hero in a Marvel film when 2018's Ant-Man and the Wasp was released.
She's been working in Atlanta on multiple Marvel projects, most recently the untitled sequel to Marvel's Infinity War that also serves as a sequel to Ant-Man and the Wasp.
Now Lilly is working on a children's book series that she imagined when she was 14.
Lilly and I spoke about her career, the convention scene, southern hospitality, things we have in common and the Squickerwonkers.
