I love her. That’s all there is to it. Elizabeth Mitchell (you know, Juliet on Lost—keep up, will ya?) radiates kindness, warmth and intelligence, and, I swear, just being in her presence ups my rating on the happy scale.

And in case you didn’t hear, Juliet’s big episode airs tonight.

So on a recent (and wonderful) afternoon, I interviewed her, and you can click in to check out what she had to say about working with Michael Emerson, the identity of Juliet’s “constant” and tonight’s “awkward” and “heartbreaking” episode…

I have to tell you, I was just having a conversation about how much we have all absolutely embraced Juliet as part of the Lost cast. You kind of forget that she wasn’t part of the original cast, and that hasn’t happened with every new character.
That’s so nice. Thank you so much. I do feel really happy you feel that way, and people have told me that. It’s amazing to me, because that’s certainly not what I expected when I joined the cast. I really just expected to come in and get to play as long as I could and get killed off pretty quickly, judging from what happened to everyone else. I think they penned it really nicely. They just needed a bridge in certain places, and that was this character. They needed a bridge between Ben and everyone else, and they needed someone to come in and be a little salt in the oyster of Jack and Kate.
And I really do like the fact that she does seem to like Jack. You’re gonna laugh when I say this, but I feel like it’s a very grown-up relationship. They seem to really respect and like each other.

By: Amrie Cunningham

Who is excited for the 4th Season Premiere of Lost? That’s me, raising my hands and flailing about with glee. In my quest to complete Season 1 through 3 before January 31 (that’s a story for another day), my love for the show has been completely renewed. Also helping to get me pumped about the new Thursday night time slot? A remarkably sincere and charming woman by the name of Elizabeth Mitchell (LOST’s own Juliet) who recently spent a good chunk of her afternoon chatting with me about what to expect and why she loves her character! A big thank you to all of the readers who contributed questions!

Lost is one of my favorite shows. It’s been one of my favorite shows, so I’m excited to talk with you about it.
Oh, I love it too! I’m always really happy to talk about it.

The Seattle Time Interview: “Lost star found in our backyard”

Show of hands from those who’ve stopped whining about “Lost” in its hour-later time slot. Now, who isn’t thoroughly enjoying this brainteaser of a ride? The clever serial drama, firmly in its third season, is too good to TiVo. (The better to talk about it Thursday a.m.)

Now, a revelation that’ll connect you to the show even more: A Lostie lives among us.

She is Elizabeth Mitchell, evil — or is she? — Juliet. That “Other”/fertility doc who kept Jack captive, torturing him with her knowledge of his past, and feeding him grilled sandwiches. She ends up helping Kate and Sawyer escape, gets thisclose to being executed (she’s branded instead) and appears to be Jack’s newest best friend. Then last week we saw her expelled from Other-land, unconscious and then, out-of-sorts in the jungle, cuffed to none other than Kate. A muddy messy fight ensued. Meow.

OMG, right? Was that not the best ep so far this season? I loved it all, but especially Alex with her slingshot and her thang for Karl, Juliet having the bad fortune to get exactly what she wished for, and Jack wielding his surgeon mojo like the dangerous weapon that it is!

I also just met up with big baddie Ben (Michael Emerson), who gave me lots of juicy teases. But first we must discuss last night’s episode!

Robin Weigert About Elizabeth And Lost Speculations

Part of “Old Info And News”

3x16 One of Us set Elizabeth Mitchell (4).jpgThe story of Juliet and her sister is not over! I tackle-jumped Robin Weigert (Juliet’s sister, Rachel) at a recent event for scoop, and she told me the writers were in the midst of creating another episode that continues Rachel’s story. “I don’t know what kind of cancer I have,” she said. “It has not been revealed to me, [but] I am not playing it being in any vicinity to the baby…I suppose I will discover [when I go back].” I told her that she and Elizabeth Mitchell were very well cast as sisters, and she agreed, saying they got along famously. “We sort of found, as we were chatting with each other, that we have the same gestures, where the top of us floats around and the bottom of us doesn’t know what to do with itself. She’s a lovely actress and a lovely person.” Amen, sister!

Lost | Michael Emerson About Juliet And Ben’s Relationship

Part of “Old Info And News”

3x01 A Tale of Two Cities Elizabeth Mitchell (13).jpgNew, powerful characters also will be introduced, and “there will be a struggle for power within the Others’ community.” Then he paused and smiled. “I have to be cagey about what I say.”

Ben’s relationship with Juliet (Elizabeth Mitchell) is admittedly “sketchy,” with evidence that he might have some romantic feelings for her that are not reciprocated.
