Story by Lance Avery Morgan

Imagine this: you live in Hawaii, you are the star of perhaps the biggest television adventure hit in a decade and you are stunning, sound like a dream? Not if you’re Elizabeth Mitchell, the Dallas-bred star of ABC’s Lost. We had a chance to catch up by phone after she’d finished s particularly gruelling action scene in the jungle, so her adrenaline was running high and she was ready to let loose, here, in an exclusive to Brilliant, we talk about her career, her co-stars, and getting dirty in paradise.

We love our Texans who make it big in Hollywood. Was there something about your Dallas upbringing that drove you to succeed?
My lovely parents, who still live in Texas, absolutely taught me my work ethic. Texas was a great place to grow up with such smart, strong people. My sense of individuality and confidence are from Texas.

Honolulu Theatre for Youth – Fan Reports

“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.

TV Guide Interview: “Things You Need to Know About Lost’s Return”

Five Things You Need to Know About Lost’s Return

It’s a Lost milestone! When the edge-of-your-seat drama returns tonight it will focus for the first time on the backstory of an Other: the appealing and perplexing Juliet. After the 13-week break, here are some memory-jogging titbits from the backstories of Jack, Kate and Sawyer, all also featured prominently during tonight’s Juliet-centric episode. […]

With Kate gone, Jack will grow closer to fellow physician Juliet. In the Feb. 21 episode, he’ll also get some flashback passion from guest star Bai Ling, a mysterious woman with a connection to the good doc’s bad-boy tattoos. Nevertheless, says executive producer Carlton Cuse, the bond between Kate and Jack “is kind of the ultimate relationship.”

2. The Others aren’t going anywhere. While some fans have lamented the airtime given to those shady Others since the start of Season 3, producers remain staunchly committed to exploring Lost’s new world. In fact, the Feb. 7 premiere focuses on the inscrutable Juliet, the book-club-presiding, let-Ben-die-pleading Other played by Elizabeth Mitchell. Flashbacks reveal Juliet’s past, including a sick sister and a decidedly low self-esteem, thanks to a decidedly no-good ex-husband. “Even though Juliet’s brilliant, she couldn’t see herself that way,” Mitchell reveals. “Her identity was tied to the man she was married to, and she wasn’t able to be strong on her own.” Producers also hint that upcoming episodes will revisit the Others’ Wisteria Lane-esque compound. Teases cocreator Damon Lindelof, “Where is that place we saw the Others?” Beats us. But we can reveal that Creepy Eyepatch Guy — who appeared on the Others’ TV monitors — will be back. As will villainous Ethan, who died in Season 1: He pops up in Juliet’s flashbacks in a way that sheds light on his interest in Claire’s baby.
