Part of “Old Info And News”
January, 2008 (unknown date)
Millions of Lost junkies around the world may not know it, but growing up in Texas had a lot to do with shaping the character of the inscrutable but lovely Juliet, who figures to play a pivotal role in the season that begins at 8 p.m. Thursday on ABC.
“Texas women are insanely strong,” says the actress who plays her.
Elizabeth Mitchell grew up in Highland Park and graduated from Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts years before landing the part of a lifetime on Lost.
“On the outside,” she says, “Texas women are incredibly gracious. But you don’t want to be iced by a Texas woman.”
She pauses, and with a little-girl laugh you’d never hear from Juliet, says, “I’ve drawn on that quite a bit, actually.” On the surface, Juliet “can be so soft, but I don’t think you want to cross her.”
