Los Angeles, Aug 3 (IANS) Actress Evangeline Lilly says she was pressured into filming partially nude scenes in ABCs hit fantasy drama “Lost.”
The “Ant-Man and the Wasp” star, who played the show’s heroine Kate Austen during its six-season run, revealed in an interview for “The Lost Boys” podcast that she was coerced into doing partially-naked scenes for her role, particularly in the third season, reports variety.com.
“In Season 3, I’d had a bad experience on set with being basically cornered into doing a scene partially naked, and I felt had no choice in the matter,” she said.
Added Lilly: “And I was mortified and I was trembling when it finished. I was crying my eyes out, and I had to go and do a very formidable, very strong scene thereafter.”
Lilly said her discomfort continued into the following season of the show.
“In Season 4, another scene came up where Kate was undressing and I fought very hard to have that scene be under my control. And I failed to control it again,” she noted.
Added the actress: “So I then said, ‘That’s it, no more. You can write whatever you want – I won’t do it. I will never take my clothes off on this show again.’ And I didn’t.”
Lilly has not filmed another scene involving nudity since her stint on “Lost,” a choice she has pointedly made when selecting projects.
