Evangeline Lilly is set to reprise her role as Hope van Dyne in the upcoming Marvel release Ant-Man and The Wasp.


Here are 5 things you may not have known about the Canadian actress.

1) In the original Ant-Man (2015), Hope was just the daughter of Hank Pym (played by Michael Douglas), the creator of Ant-Man’s suit. The Wasp – though mentioned, was Hope’s mother Janet, who died when she disappeared into a subatomic quantum realm. In the sequel, we get to see Lilly take on the mantle of The Wasp, and become the superhero she was meant to be, alongside Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man.

4) Lilly doesn’t believe in spending time in the gym, saying: “I haven’t been to the gym in about 10 years and I’ve never had a personal trainer. I’m passionate about #health and #fitness but my days don’t revolve around it.” She does other things to stay active, like taking the stairs instead of the lift, or working in the garden.

5) Other notable roles in Lilly’s portfolio are Tauriel from Peter Jackson's three-part adaptation of Tolkien's The Hobbit (2012), and Bailey Tallet in Real Steel (2011) with Hugh Jackman.
