Ant-Man star Evangeline Lilly was more than happy to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the superhero sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp (out July 6). But how does she feel about the possibility of revisiting the world of Lost, the ABC show on which she played fugitive-turned-castaway Kate Austen for six seasons?
After all, earlier this year the president of ABC Entertainment, Channing Dungey, said that while there haven’t been any discussions about a revival of the show, it’s something that’s on a list of “Wouldn’t that be great if…?” So, would Lilly consider playing Kate again?
“There’s a rumor every year that they are going to reboot Lost,” the actress says. “The thing about reboots and remakes is that I don’t like them in general, period. I want people to leave Star Wars alone! I did love Rogue One, as an aside. But for the most part, I don’t usually love them. I feel like it’s just tainting something that’s precious. I’ve said I don’t want to do things in the past and I’ve done them — you know, never say never — but sitting where I am today, my assumption is no.”
