Evangeline Lilly had acted in commercials and had non-speaking parts on a couple television shows before she auditioned for the role of Kate Austen on Lost. She was considered a longshot for the role, and the show itself was considered a wild card when it first aired. Six seasons and dozens of awards later, the show was considered by critics as being one of the greatest television series of all time. Lilly was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Television Drama Series in 2006. Kate Austen demonstrated leadership from the beginning as she and Jack Shephard helped organize the island once the dust settled after the crash. She proves to be a strong central character throughout the storyline, a role Lilly played with perfectly. Lilly has signed this limited edition (25) 11" x 17" Lost poster in black paint pen. Her signature is deemed authentic by virtue of Upper Deck Authenticated's Five Step Process.
