Lilly was cornered into doing scene partially naked on 'Lost'

Lilly was cornered into doing scene partially naked on Lost

Actor Evangeline Lilly says she felt "cornered" into doing a partially nude scene on TV series 'Lost'.

The Ant-Man and the Wasp star, who played the show's female lead Kate Austen during its six-season run, made the revelations during an interview for The Lost Boys podcast.

"In season three, I'd had a bad experience on set with being basically cornered into doing a scene partially naked, and I felt had no choice in the matter. And I was mortified and I was trembling when it finished. I was crying my eyes out, and I had to go and do a very formidable, very strong scene thereafter," Lilly said.

The 39-year-old actor said her discomfort continued into the following season of the show as she was tasked with undressing on-screen yet again.

"In Season 4, another scene came up where Kate was undressing and I fought very hard to have that scene be under my control. And I failed to control it again. So I then said, 'That's it, no more. You can write whatever you want I won't do it. I will never take my clothes off on this show again.' And I didn't," she added. Lilly said she now says no to scripts where it involves nudity.
