Crossing Lines: Thoughts about 3×08

http://31.media.tumblr.com/6779beea3be900fa55afa4a0c45cfdb9/tumblr_nxd7yxPsMx1qcns0vo8_250.gifHello everyone, I don’t know if you have already watched 3×08 of “Crossing Lines” but Liz was phenomenal last night! I’m so happy we finally got an episode all about her.

I love love love Carine so much! The strength and the passion that woman has are so powerful!
Liz has made her incredibly warm and compassionate and you can’t help but to be drawn by her way of being, thinking and dealing with others!

One of the things that has always impressed me so much about Elizabeth’s acting is not only how she delivers her lines when it’s her who leads a scene, but also how she (re)acts when there are other people at the center of a scene and how she responds to them, even when it’s not verbally. How she does that amazes me every time. I think this episode shows a lot of that.


Carine has to deal with this arrogant old man, who treats her and her team like incompetents. He gives her/them orders and doesn’t hesitate to threaten her of making her lose her job if she doesn’t do as he says.
You can see how the words said by Bernard hit Carine in the stomach and are reflected into Elizabeth’s reactions. PERFECTION!
The respect and the affection Carine has for her team is one of the best characteristics she has. And I love how supportive Dorn is with her. I like their relationship a lot. The last scene was very sweet… when Elizabeth smiles… she’s so precious!

Oh just another thing… Carine always sits on a desk… it’s just pure tenderness!

When you watch the episode, let me know what you think! 🙂 Oh some gifs for the episodes are here!

Crossing Lines: Goran Visnjic about Carine

Ste made the translation from a polish interview  with Goran. He talks about Carine and her relationship with Marco. 🙂

Please tell us a little bit about the relationship between Marco and the character played by Elizabeth Mitchell. It seems that there is strong tension between you two?

– You have to build tension! They used to say that it is boring to play characters who all get along. It is more interesting to play characters with conflicts.
Carine (the character played by Elizabeth) and Marco always argue – they have their good and bad days.
Carine once worked for Michel Dorn in the ICC as one of the best investigators. Now she got promoted to leader of a special unit. It’s one of those people who do not have much privacy.
She works 24 hours a day. Nothing came easy for her in life, so she must really work hard to achieve something.

Crossing Lines: Thoughts about the episode 3×05

http://33.media.tumblr.com/b24f92f2c2d7f499b89b745b4a7020f6/tumblr_nwaaat4wQp1qcns0vo1_250.gifCrossing Lines 3×05 is the best episode so far.
Elizabeth was extremely amazing and looked like a Goddess, really. The way she portrays Carine is so compelling. This character is so strong. They revealed something about her past (won’t say what it is because not everyone has watched the episode yet) that makes her … quoting Marco: “you’re even more impressive than I thought.”

Things like that changes you forever and Carine’s lines make me cry.
I wanna quote her, but don’t read any further if you haven’t watched the episode yet.

Carine: “Marco, I didn’t tell you this to get your pity or your compassion. What happened, happened. I dealt with the rage and the pain a long time ago. I don’t let them define me.
You deal with your past or you get trapped by it.”

I’m really so impressed by this character, the strength and confidence Liz put into her. I’m so grateful to know all these messy and strong women she plays. Nobody else could play them so perfectly.

As Rola Bauer said, Liz has this combination of strength and softness and at the same time she’s very demanding and she conveys all this in her characters.

I don’t really like procedural shows, but when I knew about Liz in “Crossing Lines” I watched the first two seasons and I felt that the show was different from other series. The characters are so important, they are what make a show appealing to me and so often they are hidden behind the episodic plots. “Crossing Lines” is not the case. I don’t like to watch shows where the main characters are not involved personally in the cases and it looks like they are delivering lines as if they are reading the phonebook. Although I believe Liz could read a phonebook and still looks very charming. 😛

I just wanna say that I’m happy about this show.

About the relationship between Carine and Marco… their chemistry is not only amazing, is so much more… the mutual respect and admiration are charismatic. Even though Carine is his superior, they talk to each other as friends. When she tells him that he’s doing the wrong thing, she doesn’t do that because she is her boss, but because she cares about him and about the cases. Carine really wants all the good people to win and feels that as a personal success. Justice is very important to her. She is very warm and supports everyone. Love that!

New Interview with Elizabeth about Crossing Lines

Hey guys we have a new interview with Elizabeth about “Crossing Lines” to share. Ste translated from Hungarian so if it doesn’t make any sense, it’s totally her fault. I’m kidding! 😛
When Liz talks about how they changed Carine because she was a different kind of character, I think she is talking about the Carine who asks Dorn to let her lead the team. There was this scene in the trailer they deleted. It’s Dorn who put Carine in charge, she didn’t ask for anything. It’s actually better because that didn’t represent Carine’s personality.

Here’s the interview:

The actress joins the show “Crossing Lines” as a new character and the new season premieres tonight at 9 o’clock on AXN.

Carine Strand is a brand new character on the show.What we should know about her?
– She spent ten years in the Chicago Police Department, then she came to work in Europe. Now she works in the Hague for the International Criminal Court and she becomes the team leader at the end of the second episode. She always wanted to achieve that and she’s worked so hard all her life to get it.

Is there someone of the previous season Carine doesn’t get along with?
– Yes! Sebastian (Tom Wlaschiha). He was in the first ICC team, he’s a genius, but he doesn’t care much about breaking the rules. Carine doesn’t like that, because her goal is to go by the rules in order to use the evidences in a court room. That’s why there are conflicts. They are very polite to each other, but they keep an eye on each other as well.
I like that, Tom creates rivalry and that’s good for the show.
