JJ Abrams apologises to Evangeline Lilly for semi-naked scene

JJ Abrams has apologised to Evangeline Lilly after she complained about being "cornered" into a partially nude scene on Lost.
Lilly, 38, played the character Kate Austen in the TV show from 2004 to 2010 - but told a podcast last week of her difficulties with the producers.
Two of the show's creators, Abrams and Damon Lindelof, have indirectly apologised to her, although they said they're not sure if their message has got through."Our response to Evie's comments this morning in the media was to immediately reach out to her to profoundly apologise for the experience she detailed while working on Lost," they said in a statement."We have not yet connected with her, but remain deeply and sincerely sorry. No person should ever feel unsafe at work. Period."

Speaking on a podcast, Lilly said: "In season three, I'd had a bad experience on set with being basically cornered into doing a scene partially naked, and I felt had no choice in the matter."And I was mortified and I was trembling and when it finished, I was crying my eyes out and I had to go on do a very formidable, very strong scene thereafter.

"In season four, another scene came up where Kate was undressing and I fought very hard to have that scene be under my control and I failed to control it again."And so I then said, 'That's it, no more. You can write whatever you want - I won't do it. I will never take my clothes off on this show again'. And I didn't."
