In an interview with MSN TV News, Evangeline Lilly — who plays fugitive-turned-mom on ABC’s hit series “LOST” — notes the downsides of living in Hawaii.
MSN TV: Does spending so much time in Hawaii ruin it as a lovely place to be?
Evangeline Lilly: It’s true, but you still recognize how lovely a place it is, and in some ways you realize more than a visitor would how lovely it is. But, like anywhere in the world, every place has its downfalls and frustrations. At the same time as being an incredible place to live, it can be a place that makes you want to slit your throat sometimes. It’s a tiny, tiny, tiny island where there’s really nowhere to go. There’s no nightlife. It’s a very slow, relaxed culture, which is ideal when you’re on vacation because it forces you to relax and to stop and smell the roses. But when you’re working hard and you’re very, very busy, that can start to get frustrating.
MSN TV: What is it that you find makes you most crazy when island fever kicks in?
Evangeline Lilly: When you’re a busy person who’s trying to efficiently run your life but everything around you is run inefficiently, that starts to eventually wear you down.
