Breaking: Is Evangeline Lilly leaving 'Lost'?

No!

That’s what multiple sources are telling me in response to a rumor that Lost‘s top heroine, Evangeline Lilly, may be leaving the show before it reaches its natural conclusion in May 2010.

“We have no idea how this rumor got started,” maintains Lilly’s rep, “and whoever started it didn’t call us or ABC to verify the validity of it, for which there is none.”

Buzz about Lilly’s possibly premature exit stemmed from a report on Zap2it.com that claimed the actress was actively searching for a new TV gig — one that would launch this fall. But as an ABC source points out, she’s under contract with Lost through the sixth and final season, and there’s absolutely nothing to suggest she’ll be sprung before then.

Phew, crisis averted.
