Years after struggling with clinical depression, actress Evangeline Lilly has finally spoken up about her illness. Lilly, who played Kate Austen in the hit show Lost, revealed that she suffered from the illness years ago. “I have battled clinical depression and come out of the other side,” Lilly said. “I’ve been free of it for many years now.” Lilly said that, while filming Lost, she decided to make a huge change in terms of her dietary intake. She switched her diet from eating anything to eating a strict organic diet, which, she claims, helped to improve her mental state. “After about a year or two years, I started to feel something physically lift out of my brain, and I believe it was all the chemicals I was probably ingesting [before].” A positive attitude has also been credited to have had an effect on her health, saying she adopted a “fake it till you make it” attitude to help get through her challenges. “I would rather pretend to be happy than allow myself to be miserable.” Lilly can next be seen as Tauriel in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, which will be released in theaters this Friday, December 13. http://www.Twitter.com/PopWrapped https://pop-wrapped.tumblr.com http://www.SoundCloud.com/PopWrapped http://www.Facebook.com/PopWrapped http://www.Instagram.com/PopWrapped http://www.Pinterest.com/PopWrapped http://www.YouTube.com/PopWrapped https://pop-wrapped.wordpress.com http://www.PopWrapped.com
