You remember this scene from LOST?
That’s one of the memories that jogged in my head as I sat down and stared at a familiar face a few seats away – the face of Evangeline Lilly. Couldn’t be, right? Did she come back to Hawaii? LOST ended a few years back and Ms. Lilly’s filming The Hobbit in New Zealand, right?
Well, she did live in the area during LOST and random encounters are definitely possible. Witness my run-ins with Henry Ian Cusick, Jorge Garcia (once, twice, thrice, four times!), and Naveen Andrews. So anything can happen.
I no bulai on this one, Evangeline Lilly is back in Hawaii. The staff showered their VIP with extra attention causing quite a backlog of appointments. So yeah, my 20 minute appointment ended about one hour after checking in. I didn’t mind the delay although a picture with Ms. Lilly woulda been cool.
