ELIZABETH MITCHELL leaves her “ER” scrubs behind as she tackles a career in TV journalism in ABC’s new series, “The Beast.”
ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT: Your character is caught in a very unusual position in the first episode. It’s probably the first time a main character has been naked the whole first scene. Does that do anything particular to the scene? In other words, does she have a feeling of vulnerability or something that makes it more interesting to act the role?
ELIZABETH MITCHELL: I think KARIO SALEM (creator and star) has created such an incredibly interesting woman, a woman who seeks the truth, and that’s what drew me to the character. What I liked about that scene is that she is very free. I didn’t see it so much as vulnerable, just that she’s able to be with this man that she loves or she’s beginning to love and to be so open and so lovely with him. And therefore, when we see her in that really tight setting later, where she is interviewing for a job, we’ve seen her at her most natural, at her most essential, at her most basic. So that’s why I like that scene.
