While responding to fans’ comments, Evangeline Lilly said that she currently lives with her father who is at the fourth stage of leukemia. She even added that it is a personal choice to stay at home or to venture out. She even said, “Some people value their lives over freedom, some people value freedom over their lives”.

Evangeline Lilly also said that in her opinion, the coronavirus outbreak could be a conspiracy theory with the USA inching closer towards the presidential elections. She even added that “there is something every year” whenever the elections are held. She even revealed that her step to not self-quarantine comes in after she was left alone and depressed for the majority of last year.

There is also a chance that she is referring to her father’s diagnosis with leukemia. She added that she always tried to hide her trauma with laughter in public. But it was last year that the actor had a breakdown and was face-to-face with her weaknesses.
