Once Upon A Time star Elizabeth Mitchell, 44, tips her tote for Us.

Mitchell has fallen under the spell of natural remedies. “My doctor got me hooked on an herbal immune booster,” says the Lost alum, who plays Ingrid the Snow Queen on ABC’s fairy-tale series.
“It’s a mix of echinacea and goldenseal root, and I’ve been known to pour it directly into the mouths of my castmates!” The mom of CJ, 9, shows Us all of the cool loot in ther Coach satchel.
AN OPEN BOOK
“Right now I’m carrying a collection of essays called “Wild Comfort: The Solace of Nature”. The way Katheleen Dean Moore writes is so breathtaking. It’s a bit of magic that you want to sit down and savor.”
MAGIC POTIONS
“Yon-ka makes a smoothing serum that I use on my face, neck and arms – mostly because it smells so amazing! I also need Kate Somerville’s complexion-correcting sunscreen. It’s not drying at all.”
GOOD ON PAPER
“I have a Pilot Precise V7 pen. With a big pen, my writing looks all jumbled like a doctor’s – but if I use a fine tip, it’s artistic.”
LOUT MOUTH
“I love Nars lipstick in Catfight. The pink can be kind of intense, so I mix it with Paw Paw ointment to tone the color down.”
KNIT WIT
“I always have an emergency slouchy hat for those days when my naturally curly hair shouldn’t be seen in public!”

Thanks so much tiffanyleonard for this!

Once Upon A Time - Elizabeth Mitchell as The Snow Queen

EMfc edit

Hey guys we’re gonna have 2 hour episode of Once Upon A Time tonight! Do not miss it because Liz said it’s a lot about the Snow Queen!

Gosh, I really think all of that happens in the next episode [“Smash the Mirror”]. I thought that “The Snow Queen” was going to be the big Snow Queen episode and then we got to the next episode, and I realized, no, that’s the big Snow Queen episode. I got the script for the next one, and I realized there’s so much more to the story. A lot of questions are answered, and you get to see it, which is one of my favorite things about television. Show it, you don’t have us tell it.

Mark Isham (OUAT music composer) posted this photo on his instagram. I guess it’s from tonight’s episode and Liz is so beautiful! <3

‘Once Upon A Time’ Q&A: Elizabeth Mitchell Hints At The Snow Queen’s Endgame For Emma & Elsa

Elizabeth Mitchell’s Ingrid/The Snow Queen is working on bringing to fruition her plan to make Emma and Elsa her replacement sisters on “Once Upon a Time.”

Unable to control her powers as a youth, in last week’s “Once,” fans found out that Ingrid accidentally killed one of her beloved sisters, and was locked in an urn for 30 years by her other sister (Anna and Elsa’s “Frozen” mom) following the incident.

In Storybrooke this season, she’s been getting closer to making her dream a reality, helping to make Emma think that her family can’t accept her because of her powers. So what’s next? AccessHollywood.com turned to Elizabeth to get hints at what we’ll see in Sunday night’s special two-hour episode of “Once,” kicking off at 8/7c on ABC.

AccessHollywood.com: Obviously Ingrid/The Snow Queen wants Elsa and Emma to be her new sisters, what do you think she envisions Storybrooke to be like with her new sisters?
Elizabeth Mitchell:
If you think about it from a fractured mined and you think about it like a child, instead of thinking about it like an adult who has morals and consequences and all those things, but think about [it] truly like a child, it really is just – I just have to get them to just be with me, you know what I mean? And then everything’s gonna work out. And I have to get them to see that everybody else is mean and is going to be horrible to them, except for me. So really, I’m here to save them. If you think about it in that way, then you kind of like kind of can get it, but Woof! It’s messy, that’s for sure.

Once Upon A Time: IGN Interview with Elizabeth

Once Upon A Time: IGN Interview with Elizabeth MitchellThis is a new and very interesting interview with Liz about the Snow Queen. I love the way this woman thinks!

Once Upon a Time: Elizabeth Mitchell on What’s Ahead for the Snow Queen
IGN talks to the Once Upon a Time star about the Snow Queen’s past, her glittery costume, and what’s ahead.

Once Upon a Time’s been a chilly place this season. Sure, the fairy tale series is filmed in the not so warm Vancouver, but besides that, the town of Storybrooke has been touched by the world of Frozen. Elizabeth Mitchell‘s at the heart of the icy storyline as the villainous Snow Queen. She’s manipulating everyone around her to serve one goal: to be loved by her family. That doesn’t sound like the worst thing in the world, but the Snow Queen is doing whatever it takes to make Elsa and Emma be on her side regardless of the effects on Storybrooke.

IGN spoke with Mitchell about the character’s demented side, possible redemption, and the full extent of the Snow Queen’s plans.

IGN: One thing that’s interesting about the Snow Queen is that she’s quietly crazy. She doesn’t really raise her voice. What are the challenges of selling her evil side with this approach?

Elizabeth Mitchell: The original challenge was of course, you worry that people think you aren’t doing anything. I had to give a lot of thought to what she had been through. She was a child who killed somebody. It was an accident, but as a deeply empathic child, she kills someone, so she locked herself away. There was no way for her to learn the society rules. Everything was cut short.

And then she was self-aware in an urn for 25-30 years, which of course had to drive her mad. I mean, that had to be what made her mad. But I think like all villains, like all people in life, she thinks she deeply deserves what she’s asking for. She’s on the path to get what it is that she needs. And that’s why it all worked out in a calm fashion, because she deeply feels she’ll get it. So, she’s just one step after the other. There was no need to be, that type of crazy – I mean, she is crazy – but there was no need to have her throw it all around.

IGN: Yes, it seems like she has every step planned and thought out. It’s creepy.

Mitchell: I love that she’s clever that way. Her motivations are that she wants love, and that’s great. The idea that you can make people love you by killing everybody else that they love seems a bit unwise.

IGN: It’s perhaps not the best way to go about it.

Mitchell: Not the best way to go about it. It’s a very interesting thing, the way that she keeps striking this chord. And as someone who goes through life and has had wonderful, loving relationships, you’re like, “Oh come on, you can do this. You actually already have everything you want.” But you know, you can’t talk to them because they’re made up.

Once Upon A Time: ET Interview with Elizabeth

Once Upon A Time Interview with Elizabeth Mitchell about the Snow QueenHer interviews are the best so here’s another beautiful one! Enjoy! :D [Spoilers Alert]

The temperature may be dropping in Storybrooke, but the drama is just now starting to heat up!

Brace yourselves, Once Upon a Time fans because this Sunday’s all-new episode is so undeniably epic that they had to add a whole extra hour. That’s right — we’re being treated to not one, but two hours of adrenaline-pumping fairytale fun, and ETonline has your exclusive sneak peek of what you can expect.

We chatted with Elizabeth Mitchell — aka our cold-hearted Snow Queen — to find out what’s next for our Storybrooke residents in this week’s “epic” event, when the dreaded Spell of Shattered Sight will finally be unleashed, and how the newest mega magical weapon will come into play.

Last week, it was incredibly moving to finally learn about the Snow Queen’s dark past. How did this episode change the way you see her, and consequently play her?
EM: She makes me sad because she’s been through so much. She killed someone as a kid and then she went and got trapped in an urn for who knows how many years and I kind of made the choice that she was self-aware in there because I wanted there to be a reason for her madness. A reason for that cracking to happen to her psyche, I’ve always felt for her and to watch the innocence that she had and the promise for who Ingrid could have been got wiped away and there was really no one there to guide her or to help her control it. Her sisters definitely tried and she kept making all of these wrong choices and horrible things kept happening and it made me sad.

Once Upon A Time: EW Small Interview with Liz

Elizabeth_Mitchell_Once_Upon_A_Time_4x08_BTS_28229.jpgHey guys, there is a small interview with Liz about Once Upon A Time. I am including also the interview with Georgina and the other Elizabeth because they talks about the Snow Queen. Enjoy! :)

[…] But losing her powers may not fit into the Snow Queen’s (Elizabeth Mitchell) plans for Emma. After losing the love of her own sisters, the Snow Queen seems out to adopt Elsa (Georgina Haig) and Emma as her own. “She just wants love,” Mitchell says. “It’s not like romantic love. I don’t think her head works that way. She’s too young really for that, inside her mind. She wants her two sisters. She wants that feeling of belonging again. She didn’t know that she had that love and when it was gone, she knew she had it.”

However, killing her own sister wasn’t quite the catalyst for the Snow Queen’s transformation into a villain after being hidden away from society at such a young age. “She was already on the road to crazy,” Mitchell says. “Without people to really guide her towards choices and having to hide and not being able to be the person she is, she just never came into her own.”

Without those skills, trying to break the sisterly bond between Anna (Elizabeth Lail) and Elsa in Arendelle of the past may prove more difficult, forcing the Snow Queen to take drastic measures to prove to Elsa that Anna had more nefarious plans for her. “Anna wants Elsa to be as special and as original and as true to herself as she is,” Lail says. “Because of Ingrid, Elsa’s perception could potentially get skewed to see it as though I am trying to take away her powers because I have this hat box and did not tell her the truth.”

But their bond may even be able to transcend what actions the Snow Queen takes. “The Snow Queen does herself a disservice, because once she starts trying to make Elsa distrust Anna, that’s exactly when Elsa starts distrusting the Snow Queen,” Haig hints.

Once Upon A Time: TV Line Interview with Elizabeth

Elizabeth_Mitchell_Once_Upon_A_Time_4x08_BTS_28629.jpg

UPDATE: I added what Matt Mitovich tweeted about Liz at the end of the post. <3

There is a new beautiful interview with Elizabeth on TV LINE! Enjoy! :D

PS: What she said about CJ, her best friend and her grandma are the best! <3

This Sunday on ABC’s Once Upon a Time, the forecast calls for extra amounts of snow, seeing as the episode “Smash the Mirror” was supersized to run two hours (starting at 8/7c).

What chilling face-off will the Snow Queen conjure? What burning questions will be answered? (And where does Ingrid stand on the Regina/Robin situation?) TVLine spoke with Lost/Revolution alum Elizabeth Mitchell about all that, her magically gravity-defying wardrobe and more.

TVLINE | What have you gone and done that they needed to add an extra hour to this week’s episode?
Oh, you know…. [Laughs] We had this amazing director, Eagle [Egillson, for Part 1], and when we were shooting it, I just liked what he was doing. I thought it was so fun and dramatic and kind of just wonderful, like a sweeping, epic fantasy. I guess [the producers] felt like it was so much fun, they wanted to add more. And there’s a lot more, too, with Lana [Parrilla]’s character, which is joyful for me because I love watching her.

TVLINE | If you are following Lana’s storyline, whose team are you on? Do you want Robin to go for it with Regina, or should he be true to Marian?
That’s a hard one, isn’t it? It’s lovely to be true, but I don’t even know if [Robin and Marian] really like each other all that much. So, yeah, unfortunately that is kind of my feeling on that. But Marian’s a lovely girl, so hopefully she’ll find happiness somewhere else.

TVLINE | So, I’m looking at the logline for this two-hour episode. Why is The Snow Queen going to pit Emma versus Elsa?
She’s just trying to find love, so it seems to me that throwing a bit of discord in there always helps people figure out who they really are. I’ve been playing her like a very angry preteen girl because I feel like she was self-aware in that urn for so many years, so I don’t really see where she learned to grow up or any of that stuff. She’s just doing it the best way she knows how. But it’s so hard because you keep wanting to be like, “It’s right in front of you! You have it already,” but that’s why we have all these great antagonists.

TVLINE | If Emma were to lose her powers – and it appears she might try to make that happen this Sunday — would Ingrid lose her interest in her?
Oh my gosh, that’s such a great question because there is something kind of horrifying about the fact that she only deems people who have magic to be interesting, right?
