Who is Norman Kali?
Norman was born and raised in Hawaii, however, the exact date of his birth is not known – he holds American nationality and follows the Christian religion. People know Norman for two things – for being a production assistant as he’s worked on some successful TV series and movies, and for being the boyfriend of Canadian actress Evangeline Lilly.
Early life and education
Norman never talks about his family so there is nothing known about them – he doesn’t talk about his siblings either, which make people believe that he is an only child. Norman was never really interested in studying, and therefore dropped out of school when he was 16. He began working in any place in Hawaii where he managed to find a job, then when he turned 18 he decided to move to Los Angeles to pursue a career.
There is not much to say about Norman’s career – he began working as a production assistant soon after he moved to L.A., but it is not known how or when exactly he got his first job. He also worked as an assistant director, and an actor in a couple of films – the most popular movies and TV series on which he worked include “Lost”, “North Shore”, ”Undercovers”, “The Big Bounce”, “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug”, and “50 First Dates”.
Personal life and likes
Norman dated popular “House” actress Lisa Edelstein for six months, who stated after their break up that Norman is a great guy, but they simply did not fit with each other. He remained single for a while until he met Evangeline Lilly on the set of the TV series “Lost” – Lilly had the main role and the two of them soon became quite close to each other. They began dating officially in May 2010, and their relationship became more serious when Lilly moved to Hawaii to live with Norman. He is the kind of person who wants to keep his personal life to himself because he wants his family to lead a normal life, especially now when he and Evangeline have a son and a daughter together – Kahekili Kali, meaning Thunder in the Hawaiian language, was born in May 2011 – they didn’t tell anyone that Evangeline was pregnant until it became visible. Giving birth to Kahekili was not easy as he was born at home via natural delivery which took 30 hours – it was bad weather during that time, there were thunderstorms around and that’s how Norman and his girlfriend came to the idea for his name. Their daughter was born in November 2015 but they’ve succeeded in keeping everything about her life a secret, including her name. They are all currently living together in Hawaii, with Evangeline claiming that they both she and Norman want their children to grow up in Hawaii.
Norman enjoys spending time outdoors rather than staying within four walls – he is a passionate rock climber, and loves to go surfing, saying that these sports are the reason why he doesn’t need to go to the gym. His favorite actor and actress are Tom Cruise and Emma Stone, his favorite colors are white and blue, and he loves Italian food the most.
Evangeline was born in Fort Saskatchewan, Canada on 3 August 1979, so under the zodiac sign of Leo and holding Canadian nationality. She spent her entire childhood with her low-income family – her father, a teacher, was very strict and religious, and did not give his kids too much freedom – Evangeline has two sisters. Their mother worked as a cosmetics consultant, and agreed with her husband’s method of raising the girls.
Evangeline wasn’t interested in acting during her early age, rather wanting to do something more noble such as humanitarian work – she began volunteering for children’s projects, and joined a missionary group which gave her the chance to travel to more than 14 countries including the Philippines which she loved the most.
She went on to graduate from the University of British Columbia, with a Bachelor’s degree in International Relations. She started acting in a rather unusual way – she was approached by a “Ford Models” scout but refused his offer; she wanted to become a missionary but was broke after her university expenses, so she contacted the same scout and arranged her first shooting. She also worked as a waitress and a flight attendant, just so she could gather enough money to pay the university.
Her first appearances on the TV screens were in 2002 TV series and movies including “Smallville”, “Freddy vs Jason”, “Lizzie McGuire”, and “Royal Hospital”. She did not become popular until she landed the main role of Kate Austen in the “Lost” ABC series, and where she met Norman for the first time. The series was a major success, watched worldwide, and earning Evangeline a Screen Actors Guild Award – she was also nominated for a Golden Globe Award but didn’t manage to win it. Some of the other movies which she’s appeared in include “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” and “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies”.
Evangeline was married to Canadian hockey player Murray Horne from 2003 but divorced in 2004 – she also dated Dominic Monaghan, an actor who appeared with her in “Lost”, from 2004 to 2007.
According to authoritative sources, Evangeline’s current net worth is estimated to be over $15 million – it’s said that she made around $1.5 million just from the “Lost” TV series.
