Happy birthday, Evangeline Lilly! The Lost, The Hobbit, and Ant-Man star turns 38 today.

The Canadian actress didn’t intend to pursue a career in acting — she appeared in bit-parts in Freddy vs. Jason and TV’s Smallville while working as a model — but millions of Lost fans are probably glad that she did. Lilly was cast as Kate Austen in Lost by show creators Damon Lindelof and J. J. Abrams after viewing over 70 audition tapes. She became an instant fan-favorite character on the show, and Lilly has had a successful career ever since.

Check out the audition that grabbed the attention of the Lost creators above!
