This is a translation from a French interview Elizabeth did in Paris last month.
Elizabeth Mitchell : “Crossing Lines is a totally new show
Since”Lost”, Elizabeth Mitchell had played a lot of television roles. She now plays Carine Strand in the third season of “Crossing Lines” airs Monday on 13th Street.
Carine is a new character in “Crossing Lines”, what should we know about her?
She is in charge of the investigation team of the ICC. It’s a strong woman, very feminine with a lot of empathy. I like women like that, a little broken and complex.
What made you decide to sign for this third season?
Donald Sutherland of course. He’s so smart and talented and pushes us to give our best.

Personal request to Elizabeth: we want a video or at least a pic of you doing handstands. For science. Thank you! 😛
Translation from a French interview.
Solar, passionate and warm, the American actress has only good memories of this European adventure and of her character.
Elizabeth Mitchell talks about her career. In her company the time went by way too fast.
What made you decide to join this completely revised third season of Crossing Lines?
Donald Sutherland … I have always dreamed to work with him. I was also excited to give life to a new female character as strong as Carine. At the moment, there are beautiful roles for women on tv, more different, more memorable, better roles. It’s funny because when I was 18 years old, at the beginning of my career, I was told that I would have had opportunities till 30 years old … Actually I got roles of great heroines since I was 35 years old.

Here there are the interviews with Elizabeth and Goran who talk about it:
Can we expect a season 4?
Elizabeth Mitchell: “I signed a contract for two more years and so did Goran.”
(From this interview)
Do you know if there will be a season 4?
Goran: Not yet. For now, we wait. The creative decision has not been made yet, the distribution has not started yet so we wait. “Do I move on? No I have to wait again. OK no problem.”

Second meeting with Elizabeth Mitchell, after Cannes, I met the actress in Paris.
After watching the first three episodes of Crossing Lines season 3 I talked with her about her character: Inspector Carine Strand.
New season, new start!
Does Crossing Lines Season 3 give the impression of a reboot?
Elizabeth Mitchell: “It may be a shock to the public because it is completely different. You know in USA there are Law & Order and Law & Order: SVU, they have the same skeleton but they are completely different. I watched the first two seasons of Crossing Lines and I think there were some very good actors. But I feel that this is a new start for the show.”
How does it feel to be the newest member on set?
Elizabeth Mitchell: “It’s funny because we all started at the same time except for Donald (Sutherland), Tom (Wlaschiba) and Lara (Rossi). It seemed to start something new with great respect for Tom and Lara and what they did before. It felt like it was a new show and it doesn’t give the impression that people were replaced. I did not feel like stealing a role because there were no problem with previous talents. It’s simply a new idea. “

There is a new interview with Elizabeth from Paris. It’s in French, if anybody is able to translate it and send it to us, it would be great!
Crossing Lines Season 3 starts on Monday, March 7 at 08:45pm on 13th Street!
After the dramatic events of season 2 with the death of the character played by Marc Lavoine and the departure of William Fitchner, the series was a mini reboot with the arrival of Goran Visjnic and Elizabeth Mitchell (who play Marco Corazza Costante and Carine Strand) and Frank Spotnitz as showrunner. More rhythmic, better writing (at least in the first 3 episodes we watched), season 3 is refocusing around the team led by Donald Sutherland (Michel Darn), one of the few characters back for the new season. The story starts six months after the end of season 2.
We had the opportunity to meet Goran Visjnic (Luka on ER) and Elizabeth Mitchell (Juliet on Lost) and they talked about season 3 in a very relaxed and funny way.
Goran: Elizabeth will talk and I’ll listen. This is how we will work. Why is this the only interview we did together?
Elizabeth: Really? It’s a great duo, it’s a shame for the others! (Laughs) Oh, look, we crossed our legs in the same way.
Goran: Yes, my legs are much more sexy than yours!
Elizabeth: You do not realize how hard it was to work with someone prettier than me!
Goran: Do not say that, do not worry about that! A little respect for you, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth: But stop, you’re so fine, you’re a distraction. All the time ! It makes me laugh all the time.
