“Lost” actress Evangeline Lilly thinks she’s too good to self-quarantine.
In a post on Instagram, Lilly said it was “business as usual” for her and her family–even as Americans of all ages hunker down in their homes and practice social-distancing.
“Just dropped my kids off at gymnastics camp. They all washed their hands before going in. They are playing and laughing. #businessasusual,” Lilly wrote on a post of her drinking tea.
As fans expressed shock that her kids would be surrounded by people at a gymnastics camp, Lilly sought to downplay critical comments–but inadvertently dropped another bombshell: that her father, who has stage 4 leukemia, is living with her.
“I am also immune compromised at the moment,” Lilly added. “I have two young kids. Some people value their lives over freedom, some people value freedom over their lives. We all make our choices.”
To another comment, Lilly downplayed the entire crisis. “Where we are right now feels a lot too close to Marshall Law [sic] for my comfort already, all in the name of a respiratory flu. It’s unnerving… Let’s be vigilant right now. And kind. Watchful and gracious — keeping a close eye on our leaders, making sure they don’t abuse this moment to steal away more freedoms and grab more power.”
In another response, Lilly also added, “There’s always something in an election year.”
Lilly, who has shilled for a number of leftist causes including the environmental group Sierra Club, had her most famous role on the ABC drama “Lost” from 2004 to 2010. Ironically, one of her old co-stars, Daniel Dae Kim, was diagnosed with Coronavirus yesterday.
