This is a very nice fan report by someone who got to meet Elizabeth at WonderCon and shared the experience and two pics of her leaving the convention.
Then we had to run back up for the Revolution signing. The NBC series produced by JJ Abrams.
Again, we couldn’t take pictures, but can I just tell you. Elizabeth Mitchell… One of the nicest, coolest, most awesome people I have ever met. Now, I got into the “V” signing before the series came out at SDCC and Elizabeth was awesome then, but…
She literally spent a good few minutes with everyone. Took everyone by the hand and said hello. Now, Juliet was my favorite character on Lost. Erica told me, “Juliet is going to be your favorite.” and let me tell you, she was right.
Elizabeth literally was adorable. I mentioned how much I loved her on Lost and she was like, “you know, I wasn’t sure when they put Josh and I together if it would work, but there was something about those two characters” and she went on, and it was like having a conversation about Lost. Then I flippantly mentioned how much I miss “V” and we talked about “V” for a second. Seriously, I was like, I need to go. LOL… Stephen Collins was there and I was so taken aback at how nice Elizabeth was I barely said two words to him.
I can’t say enough about how cool Elizabeth was. Susan told Elizabeth how pretty she was, and Elizabeth said, “Oh, so are you!” or something like that. lol.
We checked out some of the cosplayers outside and then saw Elizabeth Mitchell leaving. She was waving at everyone and smiling at everything going on around her. It was pretty funny.

This is an interview Liz did during the WonderCon so it’s about Revolution, but she also talks about her new project: the book she was trying to get the rights for. The title is “Dolls Behaving Badly”. She signed the paperwork last Monday so she’s going to write it. I’m so excited about this! Isn’t it fantastic?! Read the full interview:
Elizabeth Mitchell is a wonderful human being. We’ve known and loved her since she burst onto the scene of LOST as Juliette, and gave Sawyer (and us) someone to fall in love with. But she’s been all over the map, with V, ER and even Santa Clause 2 on her varied and impressive resume. She currently lights up our TV on NBC’s Revolution as the mercurial Rachel Matheson, which airs on Wednesdays at 8 PM.
Revolution was all over WonderCon for Friday, with an exciting panel, a press conference and a round table chat featuring star Elizabeth Mitchell (LOST), Stephen Collins (7th Heaven) and writer/executive producer Rockne S. O’Bannon (Farscape, Cult, The Twilight Zone). I luckily managed to be apart of that round table, and the following are juicy nuggets from the conversation with Elizabeth Mitchell, as she teases the upcoming final four episodes of Revolution‘s second season, what she wants to see in season 3 (should she and the show survive), her nerd upbringing and thoughts on LOST, conventions and more!

EXCLUSIVE: Elizabeth Mitchell Would Love to Appear on ‘Once Upon A Time’ as a “Fanciful” Character
Elizabeth Mitchell was at WonderCon 2014 promoting her hit post-apocalyptic show, Revolution, and during our exclusive video interview with her I asked if she would like to join other LOST actors in guest starring on Once Upon A Time. See her answer below.
“Oh, that would be so fun! Yeah, someone said something about that.” I followed up by asking who would she like to play: “Oh, I have no idea. Somebody fun, somebody fanciful, somebody crazy. Or possibly the sweetest person in the world; that would be new for me. That would be great, I would have a great time with that.”
Some weeks ago Adam Horowitz wrote on his twitter: “they’re (Liz&Evangeline) both quite busy right now! But loved working with them and would love to do so again someday”
So guys, make this happen!

Executive producer Rockne S. O’Bannon described Rachel as a lightning rod, so what can you tease about the final episodes of season two and what sparks she’ll be setting off?
Elizabeth Mitchell: “Rachel and her sparks… She’s a catalyst for change, right, so I like that. That’s nice. She’s down a road of people finding their conscience right now, which my dad is very unhappy about because he likes me as a cold-blooded killer. I don’t know what that means except that he’s a huge fan of sci-fi, Sarah Connor – that’s his world and his genre. That’s what I grew up loving because, of course, dad likes it. I was like, ‘Yeah, this is fantastic.’ So, for him, Rachel finding her moral center, he’s like, ‘She’s not going to kill people anymore?’ I was like, ‘Dad!’ But mom my is like, ‘You know, it’s lovely to see a conscience start to be re-introduced to the show. It’s lovely to see people trying to fight good against evil, rather than everybody being grey.’ So I think Rachel’s trying to lead people down a better road. She’s not really sure how to do it. She’s going to get pretty unpopular before anything good happens from it. But it is interesting.”
