ELIZABETH MITCHELL FAN CLUB "THAT FANSITE OF" HERS
This is an interview Liz did at the table with various reporters at MIPTV. The interview was transcripted in French and we translated it in English. There’s no original version so the words are not the exact same words Liz said during the interview but you’ll get an idea.
Can you talk about your character?
Elizabeth Mitchell: “Carine (Strand) is an investigator for the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the first two episodes and at the end of the second episode she will be the leader of the group.”
The shows become more and more international, what about your work?
EM: “There is an appetite for more international shows. There is more room to make your voice heard. There is a desire to be global and tv reflects that. This is really exciting! I work with people from all around the world and I have never really experienced that before. On our set there are about 5 – 7 languages simultaneously. For me it’s fascinating! The places where we film and the people we work with are fascinating.”
Are there differences between filming a show in USA and Europe?
EM: “It becomes more and more the same. However, it is slightly different filming in Europe: they put more emphasis on the characters. There’s a bond between two worlds so that is nice for me. It is intriguing!
I think I would have never made “procedural” show because I would never have been so intrigued. My character is complicated and grim. Frank Spotnitz really took care of that aspect”

Today is our lucky day, we’ve found an adorable interview with Liz from Cannes!
We’re really excited. It’s my first time. I’m thrilled that I’m having a great time. I get to work with Goran. I’m lucky! You know, I love my strong women. They’re my favorites. And they are all strong in different ways so as long as I can keep doing that I’m satisfied.

Hi everyone, we found a small interview with Liz, Goran, Frank and Rola from MIPTV and more pictures from the event. Enjoy!
Studiocanal – backed producer Tandem Communications in Cannes with series three of Crossing Lines, a fast-paced thriller based around a fictional European police unit tackling cross-border crime. The new series is penned by Frank Spotnitz and features two new cast members: Goran Visnjic (ER) and Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost).
Visnjic told MIPTV News: “It was really appealing for to work with Frank and (Tandem president) Rola Bauer. It was also an opportunity to work alongside the great Donald Sutherland, who plays Michel Dorn of the International Criminal Court in all three series.”
Mitchell’s work to date has mostly been based in the US. But the prospect of filming in Europe for four months didn’t worry her: “It was really intriguing to work in so many news places. I was also excited by the fact that my character hadn’t been fully developed when I first spoke to Rola and Frank. That was an opportunity for us to develop her beyond broad strokes.”
Spotnitz was not involved in the first two series. Explaining his decision to write series three, he said: “There are so many exciting stories to be told about crime in Europe, so it’s been a great project to work on.”
Bauer said Sony’s AXN and Sat1 were continuing to back the show. She added: “We are moving into a new era with Crossing Lines and are elated to have Goran and Elizabeth. And it was great to involve someone of Frank’s calibre.”

There is an article about the Spell of Shattered Sight with a small interview with Liz. This is what she said:
‘Once Upon a Time': How will the Spell of Shattered Sight affect Storybrooke?
At the close of the last Once Upon a Time, the Snow Queen (Elizabeth Mitchell) released the dreaded Spell of Shattered Sight, which will cause the town’s residents to turn on one another as they can only see the most ugly aspects of themselves and others around them. Sound familiar? That’s because the spell is adapted directly from “The Snow Queen,” the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale that Frozen is based on.
“It’s a big spell,” Mitchell tells EW from the Vancouver set of the ABC fairy tale drama, where just outside her character’s ice cream parlor, the Seven Dwarves are at each other’s throats as the spell takes hold. “What’s powerful about it is that it’s such deep magic. It doesn’t just affect one person, it affects everybody that it touches.”
What’s more terrifying is that the town may not realize how powerful this spell really is. “It not only causes pain, but it causes death to everybody except for the people that she’s chosen,” Mitchell reveals.
