Evangeline Lilly Retires: MCU Star Issues Statement on Stepping Away From Acting

Marvel Cinematic Universe star Evangeline Lilly is stepping away from acting, revealing in a recent social media post that she would no longer be working for the foreseeable future.

Why is MCU star Evangeline Lilly retiring?

In a recent post on Instagram, Lilly shared an old clip of her from 2006 while filming for the hit ABC series Lost. In the clip, Lilly is asked where she’d like to be 10 years from then and reveals she’d actually like to be retired. In the Instagram post, she confirmed that she is now taking her own advice and stepping away.

“I am so filled with joy and contentment today as I live out my vision. Praise God, I feel so grateful for my blessings,” Lilly said in the post’s caption. “Stepping away from what seems like the obvious choice (wealth and fame) can feel scary at times, but stepping into your dharma replaces the fear with fulfillment. I might return to Hollywood one day, but, for now, this is where I belong.”

Lilly is best known for her time on Lost, where she starred as Kate Austen during the show’s popular run. She’s also been a mainstay in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, having starred as Hope van Dyne/The Wasp beginning in 2015. Lilly’s acting credits also include roles in the critically acclaimed film The Hurt Locker, The Hobbit film series, and more.
