Old Article | Beauty and The Beast

We found this old and nice article about Liz.

August 2001

Highland Park grad Elizabeth Mitchell goes from the emergency room to the newsroom.

Elizabeth Mitchell broke her nose in 2000 on the set of Frequency, her first feature film, but that didn’t stop her from bulldozing her way to the top. You might say she takes after her parents, Joseph and Josephine Jenkins-Mitchell, real estate and tax attorneys whose practice is a stone’s throw away from their Highland Park home. But breaking out of her upper-middle-class comfort zone and pursuing her dream of acting was more important to the budding thespian than following in her parent’s footsteps. “You’ve gotta go for it,” Mitchell says, “and go for it with gusto.”

Mitchell honed her acting skills at the Dallas Theater Center for six years before graduating from Highland Park High School in 1988. She earned a BFA in acting from Stephens College in Missouri and also spent a year at the British American Drama Academy before relocating to LA in 1994. The following year saw her daytime drama debut as Dinah Lee Mayberry on Loving. That gig led to a co-starring turn with Angelina Jolie in HBO’s Gia, the vehicle that made Jolie famous. But Mitchell’s big break came recently, when she burst onto the primetime scene playing lesbian psychiatrist Dr. Kim Legaspi on ER. Her role opposite ER veteran Laura Innes caught the eye of rival network ABC, and Mitchell quickly landed her own show. She currently laments the lethargy of bureaucracy and wrestles with the ethics of journalism as hard-nosed reporter Alice Allenby on The Beast, a reality-based news show. The concept is a tricky one for ABC to pull off; it requires a bit more active participation than Survivor. But if Beast doesn’t sit well with viewers, don’t fault Mitchell. She pulls off the smart-and-pretty combo with remarkable ease, and we’re confident we haven’t seen the last of her.

2010 Télé 7 Jours Interview

We got this French magazine’s interview with Elizabeth from 2010 and @pinoche29 was so kind to translate it in English for all of us. It’s mostly about Juliet and CJ. Enjoy! 🙂

Elizabeth Mitchell “I believe in karma”

Elizabeth knows a lot about TV series : ER, SUV, House MD, Spin City and recently Lost, where, for 2 seasons, she’s been part of Hollywood most watched “missing persons”. Télé 7 Jours just found her during the Monte-Carlo Festival, last June…

Elizabeth gained 72 pounds during her pregnancy. She finally lost them on set of the show: “I breastfed my son, I ran on the beach and stopped eating bread.”

She was persuaded that Lost fans were going to hate her.
“Juliet did some pretty immoral things because she’s willing to do anything to survive and see her sister again,” Elizabeth explains.
But the fierce intelligence of the doctor and her unexpected feelings for Jack redeemed her “at least to me!” the actress confesses.
“Juliet stands somewhere between a maternal figure and a venomous snake.”
Like Kate Walsh, Elizabeth succeeded, with her personality and her charisma, to turn an unlikeable character into one of the fans’ favourites and the fact that she wasn’t nominated for an Emmy Award just made an outcry on the internet.

Articles about ER and Boston Legal’s still

Since is Thursday, here’s a TBT… we found these two articles about Elizabeth’s role on “ER”. They describe Kim as a “sexy and self-assured psychiatrist” and in the first one they call Liz “sexy” so they are worth posting because of that. 😛

And here’s a still from “Boston Legal”.

LOL! This was really unintentional… posting something about her as a psychiatrist and then something about her as a patient into a psychiatric facility. HAHA! Well this is a proof of how different her roles can be. They are both amazing characters and Elizabeth plays them perfectly!

Elizabeth Mitchell On Her Love Of ‘Genre’ Shows And The ‘Lost’ Finale

Links to all the interviews: » Hollywood Reporter »  Zap2it  » Huffington Post  » EW  » The Insider

Oh that’s exciting, this is another interview with Elizabeth by Huffington Post:

‘Revolution’ Star Elizabeth Mitchell On Her Love Of ‘Genre’ Shows And The ‘Lost’ Finale

“Revolution” star Elizabeth Mitchell is no stranger to “genre” shows. Having played a fan-favorite “Other” on “Lost” and an alien-busting cop on “V,” Mitchell has cemented herself as a favorite amongst the sci-fi/fantasy crowd. She’s lending that cred to NBC’s new fantasy series “Revolution,” although it’s not like the series is lacking a sterling geek pedigree. Hailing from J.J. Abrams and “Supernatural’s” Eric Kripke, the series is set 15 years after all the world’s electricity has gone out. That means no cell phones, no computers, no refrigerators, nada.
