The Expanse | James S. A. Corey About Elizabeth

James S. A. Corey account (should be Ty Franck posting on that account) said that, in the scene between Anna and Amos in the last episode of The Expanse, the lines “because it needs to be done?” was Liz’s idea. 😀

Well… we all know she has an immense talent in everything that she does and having great ideas for her characters is not a surprise.

Her roles are all under her skin, you can see that by how deeply she goes into their heads and hearts. She knows them completely and at the same time she knows all the characters she has scenes with.

It’s a work that all the actors should do, but you don’t see it done often.

We have always liked that in Elizabeth. During interviews she’s always able to discuss also other actors’ roles. It’s necessary if you want to play someone accurately without missing any spot.

So that’s why it’s not a surprise she had the idea of “because it needs to be done?”, which implies that she understands Amos, since Anna understands him too.

Anyway this is what Ty Franck posted:

Now, to be fair, doing a callback to “because it needs to be done?” in this moment was in fact Elizabeth Mitchell’s idea. She has fantastic instincts.

Welcome to Pine Grove! – Laura&Her Mother: Emotional Core In The Film

This is a very nice article about the movie, but what is very interesting is that they say that the relationship between Laura and her mom should help establish an emotional core to the film. YAY! That is exactly what we were expecting! 😀

http://elizabeth-mitchell.org/skin2017/WelcomeToPineGrove.jpgThe cast for “Welcome to Pine Grove!” continues to grow by the day. Last week, both Ellen Burstyn and James Caan joined the cast in the Rom-Com. Since then, we’ve had two more casting announcements to add to the impressive cast. The new cast members include some big TV and film veterans to certainly be excited about. Among the group is Elizabeth Mitchell, Loretta Devine, and more.

“Welcome to Pine Grove” producer Harrison Powell announced Mitchell’s casting, which comes on the heels of a group of four yesterday. That group included Devine, Ann-Margret, Christopher Lloyd, and Jane Curtain. The latest addition helps to solidify a quickly expanding cast. Mitchell is best known for her role on “Lost” which netted her an Emmy nomination in 2010. Mitchell is set to play Burstyn’s daughter, which should help establish an emotional core to the film.

“Welcome to Pine Grove!,” touted as “Mean Girls” in a senior living community, has picked up a very good ensemble now. The cast is full of Oscar and Emmy nominees and winners, which should help bring out the considerable talent. Michael Lembeck, who directs “Welcome to Pine Grove!,” has previous experience directing both film and television. Lembeck and Mitchell worked together on “The Santa Clause 2” and “The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause.”Donald Martin wrote the screenplay based on a story from Powell. With an impressive cast and some funny material, this looks like it could quickly become a smash hit.

Welcome to Pine Grove! – About Laura’s Mom

http://elizabeth-mitchell.org/skin2017/WelcomeToPineGrove.jpgWe found this article that is more specific about why Laura’s mom moves into Pine Grove Senior Community. She accidentally set her home on fire.

It will be so interesting exploring this mother-daughter relationship. We can’t wait!

Actor Elizabeth Mitchell has joined the cast of romantic comedy “Welcome to Pine Grove!”.

Mitchell will play the daughter of Ellen Burstyn’s character, reported Variety.

Michael Lembeck is directing the film from a screenplay by Donald Martin based on a story by Harrison Powell.

The story is inspired by Powell’s grandmother’s own experience of moving into a retirement community.

In the film, Burstyn plays an independent widow who moves into the Pine Grove Senior Community after accidentally setting her home on fire and realises that it is like being in high school all over again.

Mitchell plays a successful real estate agent with a complicated relationship with her mother.

The cast also includes James Caan as the love interest of Burstyn’s character and Ann-Margret, Loretta Devine, Jane Curtin, and Christopher Lloyd as Pine Grove residents.

The Astute Films production is currently filming in Atlanta.

“Dolls Behaving Badly” Is Still A Thing

http://elizabeth-mitchell.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/Dolls_Behaving_Badly-96x150.jpgDo you remember Dolls Behaving Badly, right?

According to Cinthia Ritchie (the author of the book) Liz still has the intention to make it into a movie.

She wrote this on twitter:

Yippee! Getting ready to sign the third film option for “Dolls Behaving Badly” to actor Elizabeth Mitchell (loved her in “Lost”), who has held such faith in my book. Love you, Elizabeth! #amwriting #filmoption #nevergiveup #writing

This makes us so happy!

A couple of years ago a French journalist contacted us. He needed some questions for Elizabeth because of an interview he had to do with her the day after (Crossing Lines promotion in Paris) and one of our questions was about the status of Dolls Behaving Badly.

At that time 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.”

We remember she talked to Amber Coney about this during Dead Of Summer, but we had almost lost our hopes.

The info posted today by the author means that Liz is still trying to do it! YAY!

Welcome To Pine Grove! Production Started

http://elizabeth-mitchell.org/skin2017/WelcomeToPineGrove.jpgSome of the cast have been in Atlanta already since July 31, so Welcome To Pine Grove!  production officially started.

We want to wish Liz to have a lot of fun while filming this movie. We are so excited to see it for all the reasons we wrote in the previous post.

Currently shooting in the US state of Georgia.

Astute Films’ Harrison Powell, Dominique Telson and Fred Bernstein are producing, with Rick Jackson and Claudine Marrotte serving as executive producers.

Telson commented: “We are thrilled this amazing cast will be telling this story, which is an homage to people of all ages who still believe in love. Many people we have met while developing this project have their own Welcome to Pine Grove! stories, and our hope is to inspire many more.”


Awwww so close to where they’re filming one of Julie Plec’s new shows.

Welcome to Pine Grove! – Elizabeth To Play Burstyn’s Daughter

http://elizabeth-mitchell.org/skin2017/WelcomeToPineGrove.jpgAnd our wish comes true. We wanted Elizabeth to play Ellen Burstyn’s daughter and that’s what she plays! YEEEEEEEEES! We wanted that for so many reasons.
We like Ellen a lot, plus she also plays the main character in the movie, so Laura will be an important (and super interesting) role. 😀 YAY!

What is even more amazing is that we actually have never seen the development of a mother-daughter relationship (where Liz is the daugher) in one of our Queen’s projects. So this role will be so totally new and we are so excited about that!

They removed Elizabeth from the cast of the movie on imdb, but probably it’s because there was some exclusive for a news outlet, so don’t panic, it’s normal. [UPDATE: her name is back there]

We found two articles (Deadline & Variety) with a description of Laura. 😀

Elizabeth Mitchell Joins ‘Welcome to Pine Grove!’

Lost alum Elizabeth Mitchell has joined Ellen Burstyn and James Caan in the romantic comedy Welcome to Pine Grove!, from director Michael Lembeck.

Based on a story by Harrison Powell, one of the film’s producers, the film centers on Helen Wilson (Burstyn), an independent widow who reluctantly moves into the Pine Grove Senior Community after accidentally setting her home on fire.

At Pine Grove, Wilson realizes that it is like being in high school all over again.

Mitchell will play Helen’s daughter Laura, a successful real estate agent with a complicated relationship with her mother. Her controlling nature hides her heartfelt worry for Helen’s well-being.

Photo With Fans – July 31

They sent us this beautiful photo on twitter. Happiness looks beautiful on you, Liz! <3

Mike (the guy in it) wanted to thank you for the photo. So here’s the message:

thank you for letting a couple fans snag a photo with you at the end of our flight!

We have never seen anyone more kind while taking pictures with fans. It’s just so wonderful because she makes people feel good and important. It’s such a simple but a very nice gesture. And she does that no matter how tired or busy she is.

We witnessed that when we were with her a couple of years ago and it’s not just about the beautiful smiles she has in those photos, but everything before and after. She always treats people with grace and kindness, and that will never stop to amaze us! <3
