'''Nicole Evangeline Lilly''' played the role of Kate Austen.

'''Nicole Evangeline Lilly''' was born a native Canadian (and is fluent in French). Her father is a home economics teacher, and her mother worked as a cosmetician and ran a daycare center. She has two sisters. 

Lilly attended the University of British Columbia where she attained a degree in international relations. She has been a fervent volunteer for children's projects since the age of 14, and she founded and ran a world development and human rights committee at her university. 

Prior to her starring role on ''Lost'', Lilly worked as an extra on film sets to help pay her University tuition. She also starred in episodes of ''Tru Calling'', ''Dead Like Me'' and ''Smallville'', ''Kingdom Hospital'', and in several films, including ''Stealing Sinatra''.  However, her first big break did not come until Lilly was "discovered" by ''Lost'' producers for the role of Kate. Evangeline was almost not able to work with the cast because she had problems obtaining a work visa, and got the visa after filming for the {{ep}} had already begun. 

She was engaged to co-star Dominic Monaghan from 2004 to 2009. But they broke up in autumn of 2007, and again permanently in 2009. She had her first child, a boy, with boyfriend Norman Kali in May 2011.

Early on the morning of December 21, 2006, a day before the ''Lost'' cast broke for Christmas vacation, Lilly's rental house in Hawaii was destroyed in a fire. There were no injuries as she was at work at the time, her two housemates (one of them a ''Lost'' crew member) were also not home.

She played a character newly created specifically for Peter Jackson's three part feature adaption of "''The Hobbit''." The character is a Woodland Elf named “Tauriel” which means “daughter of Mirkwood."
