While some actresses merely play “the girl next door”, and others try to embody it, Elizabeth Mitchell bends the term every which way to make it her own
by Elyse Glickman

TALL, BLONDE, BEAUTIFUL, born in Los Angeles and raised in Dallas. In short, Elizabeth Mitchell aptly fits the traditional description of the all-American girl. However, if she based her career and identity on that alone, she would be selling herself short.

Instead, Mitchell picks her roles and projects carefully, taking risks that no doubt challenge this ideal. Today, she’s best known as Juliet, one of the intimidating and mysterious “Others” on the worldwide cult hit Lost. A decade ago, she unwittingly bewitched a passionate Angelina Jolie and then had to confront her own sexuality in the award-winning cable television film Gia. In between, she’s wowed the Brits as Ioan Gruffudd’s love interest on BBC’s Man and Boy, time-travelled with Dennis Quaid in Frequency, co-starred with Rénée Zellweger in Neil La Bute’s edgy comedy Nurse Betty and took a lap on man channel ESPN opposite Barry Pepper in The Dale Earnhardt Story. But let’s just say she’s found herself, or, at least, a compelling side of herself, in Lost.

“My favourite role to date is Juliet,” Mitchell muses. “Every day and with every script, I feel a certain sense of gratitude that I have a great character and story to work. What I love most [about the show] is the writing and the people. Beyond that, it is wonderful to be excited about going to work every day, and having a very compelling and meaty story. Also, the writers have kept things very consistent in terms of the overall quality of the show and the character I play on the show. Each scene and each twist in the story really surprises me and keeps me on my toes and my skills sharp as an actress.”

Emmy Ballot: Elizabeth Mitchell For “One Of Us”

Part of “Old Info And News”

emmy-awardLast year LOST was famously snubbed at the Emmys in most of the major dramatic award categories.  Some blamed it on LOST outing itself with more straight sci-fi elements, others noted the unevenness of the season, most, however, blamed a new voting system that seemed to favor newcomers over consistency.   In the blogosphere, the debate raged that LOST’s descent into formula and the mishandling of major reveals validated its omission from the major characters, while stalwart fans were incredulous over the Emmy snub. With a redeeming third season behind it, many considering it the best season of LOST ever, the fan’s, as well as the creator’s, hopes are galvanized once again. We have some early word on what LOST producers may be submitting for Emmy consideration, and the selection looks diverse, and good.

LOST Review | “She’s the best thing to happen to that show since Season 1.”

Question: If you could pick one pair of costars from any show on television that you would say has the best on-screen chemistry, who would you pick and why? My choice, not to influence a great critic or anything, would be Elizabeth Mitchell as Juliet and Matthew Fox as Jack on Lost.
Answer: From Lost, that’s a great choice. She’s the best thing to happen to that show since Season 1. (By the way, any discussion of the Lost finale in Ask Matt will have to wait until next Friday’s column, because of the holiday and other deadlines.)

Review: The Others shift the tone on `Lost’s’ island

Part of “Old Info And News”

emmy-awardNot coincidentally, this newfound clarity has coalesced during a season in which Michael Emerson and Elizabeth Mitchell have made “Lost” deeper, better, richer. Emerson, who joined the show last season, is Ben, a bug-eyed Machiavellian leader with an elfin face and shades of L. Ron Hubbard’s cult power. Mitchell, who made her debut this year, is his reluctant double-agent, a willowy beauty who’s infiltrated the main castaways’ beach for the somewhat-stated purpose of stealing their fertile women for the somewhat-stated purpose of populating the island so that L. Ron Ben can continue his important “work.”
Their pas de deux, a mixture of deceit and empathic gesturing, is the engine driving the show’s current season.
Did the writers already have big plans for Emerson, or did they see the way he stole a scene from Matthew Fox and Terry O’Quinn last year simply by eating Cheerios?
Mitchell was the star of the best episode this season, during which we learned how she got to the island, drinking a sedative and climbing into a submarine, surfacing some hours later on an island paradise.

Review: “Elizabeth Mitchell Has Shone This Season”

Part of “Old Info And News”

emmy-awardQuestion: I know it’s a little early for Emmy talk, but I was so horrified by Lost’s snub last year that I can’t stop thinking about it. What do you think Lost’s chances are at this year’s Emmys? I think Elizabeth Mitchell, Henry Ian Cusick and Michael Emerson all have a good chance, as well as the show in the drama category. Also, I heard last year’s snub was due to the producers’ submitting episodes poorer in quality, such as “Man of Science, Man of Faith,” to the nomination panel. I hope the Emmy voters correct last year’s grievous wrongdoing and nominate Lost this year. What do you think?— John

Matt Roush: I think I admire your faith in the show and in Emmy voters. Frankly, I’d be shocked if the Emmys reverse course to show much if any love toward a show whose reputation took several hits this year: in the ratings and in media coverage over that ill-conceived opening “pod” of episodes. I agree that Elizabeth Mitchell in particular has shone this season, but given the richness and variety of TV drama these days, I can’t help but think Lost’s breakthrough freshman season (when it won best drama) is going to be its sole trip to the big party. I’d love to be wrong, but I think (speaking in island terms) that ship may have sailed for good.
