Former “Lost” star Evangeline Lilly has received an apology from the co-creators for the past nude scenes she was uncomfortable with.
J. J. Abrams and his “Lost” co-creator Damon Lindelof has apologized to Evangeline Lilly for how uncomfortable she felt on the set of the former hit ABC series.
Lilly, who played Kate Austen on the show, recently revealed that she continued to cry after the shooting of an almost nude scene.
“In Season 3, I had a bad experience on set with is basically cornered into doing a scene partially nude, and felt I had no choice in the matter,” said the 38-year-old actress. “And I was hurt and I was shaking, and when I was done, I cried my eyes out and I had on a very formidable, very strong scene afterwards.”
Another incident popped up in Season 4 as Lilly tried to take control of a semi-nude scene, but they lost it. They eventually refused nude scenes ever again.
Now, Abrams and Lindelof as executive producers Jack Bender and Carlton Cuse, say sorry.
“Our response to Evie’s comments this morning in the media immediately reach out to her to deeply apologize for the experience that they are detailed while working on LOST,” she told Page Six in a joint statement. “We have not yet connected with her, but remains deeply and sincerely sorry. No one should ever feel unsafe at work. Period.”
