When it comes to making a successful career for yourself in Hollywood, talent is not enough, as you also need the right role in the right project to get you that recognition that you really deserve. A little bit of luck can go a long way in Hollywood and every star who has ever made a name for themselves in the acting industry will have had their fair share of it.
Actress Evangeline Lilly was working in the acting industry for a few years before she landed the role of Kate in the hit television series Lost. The success of Lost catapulted Evangeline into Hollywood superstardom and she soon became a household name, with plenty of new offers coming her way.
Evangeline Lilly has gone on to have a very successful acting career since Lost came to an end, but the actress was considering turning her back on the industry and retiring from acting. Fortunately though, Peter Jackson decided to offer her the role of Tauriel in the movie The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, an offer that she really could not refuse.
It now looks like Evangeline Lilly's career is bigger and better than it has ever been before as, not only does she appear in the huge global blockbuster movies of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies, but she has also been cast in the upcoming Marvel movie Ant-Man, with many suggesting that she could play Janet Van Dyke aka The Wasp.
While it has not confirmed what role Evangeline Lilly will play in Ant-Man, we do know that she is starring in some huge movies in the coming years and her acting career is bigger and better than ever.
