Wayne Kramer (Running Scared’s Director) About Liz

emfc_runningscared_0000000001612.jpgThis is an interview Wayne Kramer (Running Scared‘s director) did yesterday in which he said very nice things about Elizabeth. 😀

Bruce Altman and Elizabeth Mitchell as Dez and Edele were also cast fairly late in the process. The initial idea was to re-team Kyle MacLachlan and Laura Dern from Blue Velvet and have them play Dez and Edele. Kyle was open to it, but Laura wasn’t, so Kyle didn’t want to do it without her.

I still think it would have been a fun approach, but I couldn’t be happier with what Bruce and Elizabeth brought to these fucked-up characters.

I have such enormous respect for both of them taking on the roles, because nobody—and I mean nobody—in Hollywood wants to play pedophiles. They were both amazing and creepy and very thoughtful in their approach.

Elizabeth told me that she wanted to play Edele by never actually touching any of the children on-screen (which was actually creepier) and I was okay with that.

I told them they were essentially playing alien beings inside human bodies and they should appear stiff and awkward as if they were being controlled by these aliens from inside.

Elizabeth even had little plastic surgery scars applied to the back of her ears (which you can’t see on-screen), because she felt that Edele had had a facelift, which would also account for the stiffness of her facial movements. Bruce had never been squibbed before and was having anxiety over being shot on-screen. When he cries out, that is real panic on his part from having the squibs explode.

They were both a pleasure to work with and I’ll always be grateful for their courage as actors in taking on the roles.

After the “read more button” you can read the part about the scene with Edele.

Santa Clause 2 | Curiosity About The Dance Scene

http://67.media.tumblr.com/47ea82c7b7d7b50bd683897e0f0dc39f/tumblr_mybfgyNaia1qcns0vo2_250.gifHey everyone, we recently bought Santa Clause 2 OST and in the booklet there is something written by Michael Lembeck (the movie’s director) about Elizabeth and the song of the scene where she dances at the end credits. Read what he said! 😀

The Eddie Money and Ronnie Spector tune, “Everybody Loves Christmas,” was the first song not already pre-written into the movie that we chose. I knew I was gong to do a sequence under the end credits and was looking for something really driving, really fun with lyrics that would inspire Elizabeth Mitchell (Mrs. Claus) to dance. We went through a ton of songs that would work, but when I played our fave five for Elizabeth, she really loved this one. When you see the end of the movie, you’ll know why.

This is a really lovely story that makes that terrific scene even better!

Oh, there is also a pic of Liz in the booklet! 🙂

Amber Coney About Dolls Behaving Badly

http://elizabeth-mitchell.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/Dolls_Behaving_Badly-96x150.jpgFor sure you remember Dolls Behaving Badly. During an interview from last February, Liz said: “I wish there were progresses. I’ve never got to the point where I really felt like I wanted to do it, but I still have a soft spot in my heart for it.”

Well they have just released an interview with Amber Coney where she mentions Elizabeth and the book. This is what she said:

In addition to auditioning, she [Amber Coney] is also writing a book adaptation for her co-star Elizabeth Mitchell. “She passed a book along to me and was like ‘I’d like to make this, I don’t know’,” she recounts “I’m going to try to write the thing, so once I have a moment I’m going to get back and write that.”

The book is beautiful and it would be great if one day they made the movie and Liz was still very involved. 🙂

Miranda Bailey Is Always So Nice

As you know, we usually post Liz’s quotes and nice words said by her castmates on our social networks. Today we posted “Elizabeth Mitchell is one classy lady. Really love her.” which is something Miranda Bailey said a few years ago and she’s just replied:

We think it’s funny she agrees with herself! HAHA! Miranda always says beautiful things about Liz!

Dead Of Summer’s Cast About Elizabeth

This is from the chat the guys did yesterday after the finale. Mark, Paulina and little Liz say amazing and true things about our Elizabeth. What they say happened to us as well and she is literally just as they describe her. Such an incredible, wise, beautiful human being!

We miss you, “sweet sweet angel” and “the most beautiful person in the entire world”… so much! <3

This is from an interview with Amber Coney. 🙂

Q: There definitely feels like some of that LOST vibe carried over in the tone of the show. Would you say that Elizabeth Mitchell brings that aura of mystery from her work as Juliet on LOST to her character Deb Carpenter in DEAD OF SUMMER as well?
AMBER: I have actually not seen LOST, but I can say that Elizabeth does a fantastic job in bringing the right sense of mystery to her character. She is an astounding actress, so it’s no surprise to watch her nailing the role.

Nobody is able to bring mystery to a character like her! <3
