HOMETOWN Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, Canada
HER BREAKOUT MOMENT She used to do oil changes on big rigs to pay the bills. Then she toiled as an extra in The L Word and White Chicks. But Lilly hit the Hollywood jackpot earlier this year when J.J. Abrams tapped her for his ABC drama Lost. As fugitive bombshell Kate, Lilly plays a good girl gone bad or is that a bad girl gone good?
WHY SHE'S A NATURAL FOR THIS ROLE ''I lived in grass huts in a jungle in the Philippines for three weeks with tribal people,'' she says, ''and swam in crocodile-infested rivers and climbed trees and...'' Wait a sec. Did she say crocodile-infested rivers? ''I was so friggin' desperate to bathe, I didn't care,'' Lilly explains.
USELESS TRIVIA ''I never developed hard cartilage in my ears because I played with them since I was a baby,'' says the actress. ''I can fold my ear entirely inside out, and I can put the whole thing inside itself.''
