‘Lost’ star Evangeline Lilly has made a quite a splash these past few weeks, showing up at a Sci Fi convention in Pasadena, now on the cover of Flare magazine on newsstands today across her homeland Canada, and set to grace the cover of April's Los Angeles magazine.
But how can you see Evangeline making a splash in person? Tabloid Baby cohort Doug Bruckner has gone to Hawaii and back to find out. He’s used his extensive island connections (see below) to reveal that Lost is filmed at Waimanalo Beach on the island of Oahu. And although Evangeline told Doug at the Sci Fi Summit that she hates stripping down on the show, her favorite place to get sand in her bikini is the island’s Kailua Beach!
Kailua is one of the most popular beaches on Oahu’s east shore, also known as the Windward Coast. Evangeline told Doug at the Sci Fi Summit that a photographer once tried to snap her there, but that she chased him away! Her costar Matthew Fox says that before they gained worldwide fame, cast members used to go “skinny-dipping at 2 a.m.,” but he didn’t say where.
Evangeline, a native of cold Fort Saskatchewan, Canada, may love the beach for tanning her skin, but she can’t stand shooting there. She says noise from the wind and waves drown out almost all of the Lost dialogue, so all their dialogue has to be looped on a soundstage.
Tabloid Baby “Thumb Guy” Doug Bruckner promises more Lost scoops—and he’s got the sources. Before he gained fame with a new generation of Internet and Lost fans, before his illustrious career as a tabloid television titan (exploits that can be found in the definitive history of the genre, Tabloid Baby), before his acclaimed, award-winning career as a reporter for KNBC-TV in its heyday, Doug was a reporter for KITV in Honolulu, Hawaii!
And his Hawaiian eyes will continue to “thumb down” new leads on Lost.
