Evangeline Lilly

Biography: If it seemed like this brunette stunner came out of nowhere when she made a splash on Lost, that's because she did. The Canada-born bombshell initially didn't have glamorous aspirations — as a teen she lived in a grass hut while working as a missionary in the Philippines — but then an agent from the Ford Modeling Agency spotted her walking down the street in her homeland.

After a handful of minuscule acting parts, Lilly landed on Lost as criminal castaway Kate Austen. She caught the eye of viewers as well as of costar Dominic Monaghan, with whom she's had an on-again, off-again relationship.

Nevertheless, that doesn't stop Maxim from regularly selecting her to be on their annual Hot 100 list. Expand
