It seems as if things have definitely gotten worse on the island. Former Lost co-stars Maggie Grace and Evangeline Lilly have seemingly very different views regarding the coronavirus pandemic. Lilly, who came under extreme fire for her comments about self-isolation and quarantining, was slammed by Grace, who urged the Ant-Man star to “rethink” her stance. Lilly took to social media to share that everything was "#businessasusual” for her and her kids, despite everyone being under orders to stay at home and quarantine.

Lilly posted to social media “Just dropped my kids off at gymnastics camp. They all washed their hands before going in. They are playing and laughing. #businessasusual.” Fans soon commented on the photo, concerned about the fact that Lilly is living with her father, who has stage 4 leukemia, and likely has a much higher rate of health complications from coronavirus due to a compromised immune system. But Lilly simply shrugged it off and said, “I am also immune compromised at the moment. I have two young kids. Some people value their lives over freedom, some people value freedom over their lives. We all make our choices.”

Well, these comments did not go over well with former Lost co-star Maggie Grace. Despite the fact that their fictitious characters on the hit ABC show know a thing or two about being isolated, Grace was quick to call out her co-star’s comments. Grace commented on the post by saying, “Hey there, I read your pre-edit post and I find it concerning. There’s no need to panic, but at the same time, this is about all of us- the vulnerable, the immunocompromised, older folks. Sure, it’s a free country, but how about choosing to exercise some of that wonderful freedom to have some compassion, trust the extensive science here and not overwhelm [the] health system.”

Grace then went on to add, “No doctor should have to choose which patients get life saving care and which patients get sent home to die- the sort of triage that is happening in Italy right now.” She added that Lilly should, “Think about how these small decisions effect [sic] your dad and those in your community as ventilators run out- and as you use your influence on such a large group of people.” Grace was likely referring to the over 2 million Instagram followers Lilly has amassed.

Grace added a final note to the post by saying, “PS Daniel said he is doing a lot better btw. I don’t know, maybe you guys wanna chat?” The actress is referring to their other Lost co-star Daniel Dae Kim, who was one of the first celebrities to publicly acknowledge his positive coronavirus testing. Since testing positive, however, Kim has been vocal on social media encouraging his followers about his prognosis and how he has been working his way toward recovery. No word yet on a response from Lilly to Grace’s comments.
