Where Were They Then?: Evangeline Lilly AKA Kate

You know and love her each week as beautiful, tomboyish Kate. Once a con-artist/murderer, now just a kidnapper, she's stolen the hearts of most of the men on the island as well as many of us in the real world. Whether she's getting caught in a net or caught in the rain, she's always easy on the eyes.

Turns out she's also easy on the phone. Does anyone else remember these Livelinks commercials? Back in the good old days, when I had to be at work at 10am rather than 7:30, I'd end up spending many weeknights watching the late night talk shows. I remember these adds would come on during every commercial break for what seemed like years, including a few months after LOST aired and became a success. I imagine after awhile she somehow used her newfound position as one of primetime TV's leading ladies to convince Livelinks to stop using the adds, but thanks to the internet, we can still watch them. They're pretty terrible.

'tis the season:

Man, I know it won't be Kate on the other line... but I'm still tempted to call, just in case it is.

I think you have to take the chance that it IS Kate, and that she's wearing jeans and shivering in the rain.

Is it just me, or was her voice completely different in that ad? I think she changed her voice for the show so that she could keep her job at Live Links without anyone knowing.

Ah, now I have that horrible, plaintive "pick up the phone" jingle stuck in my head.
