This is an interview Liz did during the WonderCon so it’s about Revolution, but she also talks about her new project: the book she was trying to get the rights for. The title is “Dolls Behaving Badly”. She signed the paperwork last Monday so she’s going to write it. I’m so excited about this! Isn’t it fantastic?! Read the full interview:
Elizabeth Mitchell is a wonderful human being. We’ve known and loved her since she burst onto the scene of LOST as Juliette, and gave Sawyer (and us) someone to fall in love with. But she’s been all over the map, with V, ER and even Santa Clause 2 on her varied and impressive resume. She currently lights up our TV on NBC’s Revolution as the mercurial Rachel Matheson, which airs on Wednesdays at 8 PM.
Revolution was all over WonderCon for Friday, with an exciting panel, a press conference and a round table chat featuring star Elizabeth Mitchell (LOST), Stephen Collins (7th Heaven) and writer/executive producer Rockne S. O’Bannon (Farscape, Cult, The Twilight Zone). I luckily managed to be apart of that round table, and the following are juicy nuggets from the conversation with Elizabeth Mitchell, as she teases the upcoming final four episodes of Revolution‘s second season, what she wants to see in season 3 (should she and the show survive), her nerd upbringing and thoughts on LOST, conventions and more!

She talks about a lot of stuff and always has the most interesting things to say. She’s funny, sweet and sparkling as usual so enjoy the interview. 😉

Name Elizabeth Mitchell
Hometown Born in Los Angeles, she was raised in Dallas.
Occupation Actress. You may remember her from the films The Santa Clause 2 and Frequency or from ABC’S Lost and V. She’s now starring in NBC’s Revolution.
It’s all about comfort “To me classic design means effortless, edited comfort.”
She knows how to plan a weekend “My ideal weekend would involve sleep. I’d wake up to sunshine, then get more sleep. Coffee with cream (in bed). Pancakes. Books. Laugher. And a magical person who comes and puts on fresh sheets when I get up to do yoga in the sunshine. More napping. The movies. Buttered popcorn. Then everyone I love comes over for dinner and we all cook together, laugh a lot, and eat.”
What inspires her “My son. Art. Artists. Music. Meditation. Dreams. Nature.”
Her dream job “If I hadn’t become an actress, I’d probably own a bookstore. I love books and readers. Throw in music and dark chocolate, and life sounds dreamy.”
What can’t she live without? “People I love. And sunscreen.”
She cherishes her theater training “The most appealing thing about theater is being able to get lost in your imagination. To bring that to someone else’s dream, start to finish. And to play, again and again. Plus the fear can be good. You have the chance to be more than you were.”
I am traditional She loves anything to do with Christmas, counts any movie with Katharine Hepburn as a favorite, and is crazy about Lauren Hutton’s style.

People on the South Magazine have just posted the interview with Elizabeth on their site.
Unfortunately they only used the new photo for the cover. The other pictures are from the photoshoot (by Nguyen) Liz took in 2011. So there is no new image in the magazine, but the photographer, Melis+Dainon, said she will release them on her site/social networks in the next weeks. So stay tuned because that new photoshoot is amazing!
For now just read the interview, it’s really nice! 😉 It’s about her, CJ, Revolution, her favourtite things and more.
You can see the magazine here. The version with Liz on the cover is available only if you buy a print version.

Revolution Volunteer with the USO and Support Military Community in San Antonio (Photos and Details)
UPDATE (October 29): New photo by kessler_baker
This is what she said about the experience:
“Our USO trip to San Antonio was incredibly exciting. As a parent of a young child, I have such a profound respect for our nation’s military families. They often sacrifice time away from those they love, and do so while maintaining our security. These families deserve acknowledgement and praise for their efforts, and I’m honored to have expressed mine with help from the USO and hope to have helped boost their morale in the process.”
Her words are the most touching!
We have some official (and huge) photos from Fort Sam’s Fall Festival and a press release of the event.
Liz with that hat is gonna be the end of me. <3

Revolution Star Elizabeth Mitchell Can’t Keep Candy Crush Off Her Phone. She’s also a Pandora addict
Who Elizabeth Mitchell
Accomplishments Currently starring as Rachel Matheson on NBC’s Revolution (Wednesdays at 8 p.m.); Emmy-nominated for her role as Dr. Juliet Burke on Lost; played Erica Evans on V
Base Austin, Texas
What’s the first information you consume in the morning?
I unfortunately am a coffee addict, so my first conversation is with my espresso maker. And then I’ll check my phone to make sure all is well. Then I listen to NPR on the way to work.
Do you pick up any local magazines or newspapers when you’re at home in Austin?
When I’m at the newsstand, I’m like a kid in a candy store. The brighter the wrapper, the more it attracts me. So I’ll pick up Texas Monthly or D or whatever it is that makes me think, “Ooh, shiny cover story!” I would love to say that it’s more intelligent than that, but it’s not. My parents are huge news junkies—they read all the papers cover to cover every morning and pass along all the good stories. It’s nice, at 43, to have your parents still informing your life.
What are your thoughts on social media?
I’m not into it. I do pretend to tweet my friends on occasion—I mean, I text people hashtags! But I don’t trust myself to be on Twitter. I say whatever comes to my mind, so who knows what I’d put on there.
