By: Amrie Cunningham

Who is excited for the 4th Season Premiere of Lost? That’s me, raising my hands and flailing about with glee. In my quest to complete Season 1 through 3 before January 31 (that’s a story for another day), my love for the show has been completely renewed. Also helping to get me pumped about the new Thursday night time slot? A remarkably sincere and charming woman by the name of Elizabeth Mitchell (LOST’s own Juliet) who recently spent a good chunk of her afternoon chatting with me about what to expect and why she loves her character! A big thank you to all of the readers who contributed questions!

Lost is one of my favorite shows. It’s been one of my favorite shows, so I’m excited to talk with you about it.
Oh, I love it too! I’m always really happy to talk about it.

The Dallas News Interview

Part of “Old Info And News”

January, 2008 (unknown date)

lost photocalls 2007 elizabeth mitchell (9).jpgMillions 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.”

OK Magazine Interview: “Life’s Full of Laughter for Elizabeth Mitchell”

They say laughter is the best medicine, but it is also the best aphrodisiac — at least for Elizabeth Mitchell. After three and a half years of marriage, the lost star tells OK! that her comedian-hubby still tickles her funny bone.

“We laugh a lot,” she tells OK! at the Hollywood Life Awards. “My husband’s incredibly funny. He makes me laugh at myself because I tend to be incredibly serious. He’s really cute. We have the same morals.”

The couple keep the laughter going with their 2-year-old son Christopher Jr., a.k.a. “C.J.,” who is “infuriating” and “amazing” all at once.

“It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done and it’s the best thing,” she says. “He makes your heart bigger and your head bigger. That can’t be a bad thing.”

While motherhood is “lovely,” the 37-year-old isn’t in a rush to expand her family.

“It’s a thought. We’ll see. It could happen.”

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.”

The Seattle Time Interview: “Lost star found in our backyard”

season 3 photoshoot blue tshirt elizabeth mitchell (4).jpgLost” star found in our backyard
by Florangela Davila

Show of hands from those who’ve stopped whining about “Lost” in its hour-later time slot. Now, who isn’t thoroughly enjoying this brainteaser of a ride? The clever serial drama, firmly in its third season, is too good to TiVo. (The better to talk about it Thursday a.m.)

Now, a revelation that’ll connect you to the show even more: A Lostie lives among us.

She is Elizabeth Mitchell, evil — or is she? — Juliet. That “Other”/fertility doc who kept Jack captive, torturing him with her knowledge of his past, and feeding him grilled sandwiches. She ends up helping Kate and Sawyer escape, gets thisclose to being executed (she’s branded instead) and appears to be Jack’s newest best friend. Then last week we saw her expelled from Other-land, unconscious and then, out-of-sorts in the jungle, cuffed to none other than Kate. A muddy messy fight ensued. Meow.

TV Guide Interview: Elizabeth Mitchell Teases a “Twisty, Turny” Lost

Part of “Old Info And News”

April 9-15, 2007

Elizabeth Mitchell Teases a “Twisty, Turny” Lost
Elizabeth Mitchell previews Juliet’s new, revealing Lost (Wednesdays at 10 pm/ET) flashback, reflects on her life as a mom, and tells tales from riding shotgun with Angelina Jolie.

TV Guide: Your character, Juliet, the fertility doc recruited by the Others, gets flashback action in this week’s episode. What can you tell us about the episode?
Elizabeth Mitchell:
It’s a nice, revelatory flashback. My first flashback episode wasn’t particularly twisty or turny. This one is definitely twisty and turny.

TV Guide: You’re not just teasing us? We’ll actually get some big answers?
Mitchell:
Oh, yeah. So many things we’ve already seen about Juliet and wondered, “Why did she do this? Why is she so cold?” You’ll know exactly why.

TV Guide: Can you tell us more?
Mitchell:
We are going to see Juliet much worse for the wear. Anyone who really wanted to mess her up and grind her face in the mud, they’re going to get what they want. And the stuff between me and Ben [Michael Emerson] is pretty heartbreaking.

Honolulu Theatre for Youth – Fan Reports

Part of “Old Info And News”

meeting with fans elizabeth mitchell (4).jpg

“Jen with Elizabeth Mitchell (“Juliet”) and Elizabeth Mitchell’s son (who co-signed several autographs).”

Jen and I had a rare night out yesterday to attend a benefit reading for the Honolulu Theatre for Youth featuring several cast members from ABC’s filmed-in-Hawaii series “LOST“:
Matthew Fox (Jack), Terry O’Quinn (Locke), Jorge Garcia (Hurley), Daniel Dae Kim (Jin), Henry Ian Cusick (Desmond), Michael Emerson (Ben) and Elizabeth Mitchell (Juliet).

I dare say it was the highlight of my year so far.

It was a once-in-a-lifetime event, mixing the stage, primetime television, and a great cause. The reading was organized by Annie Wood — accomplished children’s theatre director, HTY board member, and Cusick’s wife. She’d directed a play for HTY in 2005 when Cusick signed on for a handful of “LOST” episodes. When they found themselves back in Hawaii for a longer term, she threw herself into the local arts community with gusto.

And the actors similarly let loose last night on the stage. Sometimes flawless, sometimes halting and awkward, it was all real. There were no props, there was no pretense, just a bunch of actors and friends having fun together… ably assisted by several HTY players, of course.

Jorge Garcia and Elizabeth Mitchell opened the evening with a reading from an adaptation of “The Little Mermaid” that Wood had brought with her from London. Mitchell sparkled as the wide-eyed mermaid yearning to discover the world above (even as her young son stomped and squealed backstage), and Garcia unsuprisingly charmed everyone as her clumsy, mooning admirer.
