Lilly To Quit Acting In 10 Years

LOST star EVANGELINE LILLY aims to retire from acting in just 10 years' time, because the stress of fame is eating away at her nerves. The 26-year-old, who was thrust into the limelight after starring as KATE AUSTEN in the hit castaway drama, is determined to keep her feet on the ground but isn't sure how long she can cope with the demands fame. She says, "I want to maintain equal footing with the rest of the world. I don't know how long my career will last. "As far as how long my nerves can hold out, I would say I give myself 10 years, and if I don't get out by then, they'll be shattered. "I feel this year I've figured it out. "The dust has settled and I understand the new world I live in. That's really exciting and reassuring."
