Allergic Lilly Fears Returning To Hawaii
LOST actress EVANGELINE LILLY is dreading her return to the set of the desert island drama in Hawaii - because she is painfully allergic to so many things there. The newly-ended Hollywood writers strike brought production on the TV series to a standstill last year (07), and the Canadian star was glad of the break. She claims she has suffered non-stop discomfort since arriving on the island of Oahu, where the show is shot, and was desperate to get away when the strike started in November (07). She says, "As soon as I found out about the strike I got off the island. Island fever is not a joke. It's something everyone in Hawaii experiences. "I'm allergic to Hawaii. Everything there makes me react in some way. I have spent the last four years with allergic reactions, or sick. "On the way out, a spore or something got in my eye. The pink wet flesh inside my eye just closed up. I started to see fuzzy and everything was out of focus."
