She may be an “Other” on America’s favorite island, but fans still love her. Get to know actress Elizabeth Mitchell as she talks about her career, motherhood, and guilty pleasures.

Actress Elizabeth Mitchell is best known as the enigmatic Juliet Burke on ABC’s drama/thriller LOST, but it is what she’s found that’s generating excitement this afternoon.

“We just found a lost puppy,” says Mitchell, apologizing for the slight delay in starting the interview. No problem: In my book, rescuing a cuddly pup trumps shop talk any day. She deftly fields questions about career and family, all while following the dog as it explores its new, if temporary, digs. “I love puppies, but they really are like babies,” Mitchell adds. Her 3-year-old son, CJ, isn’t so sure about the new arrival, but Mitchell calmly soothes his worries. Seems she’s got the mom role down, too.

People Interview: “Lost’s Mystery Woman Elizabeth Mitchell”

As Her Character Keeps Fans Guessing, the Actress Nests on Another Island (This One’s Near Seattle) with Her Husband and 2-Year-Old Son

With makeup, lipstick and a good blow-dry, Elizabeth Mitchell can get through a morning of errands incognito. But in sweatpants, a ponytail and a touch of busy-mom-au-naturel grunge? That’s when the neighbors figure out that Juliet—Lost’s gun-toting, Jack-smooching, loyalty-shifting femme fatale—is among them. Says Mitchell with a laugh: “I get recognized instantly.”

Not that Mitchell, 37, minds showing a little sweat. Her Lost role—as a doctor who left the malevolent “Others” to join the castaways—is the juiciest yet for the journeywoman actress, who made her mark in movies and shows including Gia, Frequency and ER (see box). Is Juliet a double (or even triple) agent? “Part of what makes her so interesting is she is so maternal but she’s also snakelike,” says Mitchell. And in the new season—eight episodes were shot before the writers’ strike halted production in November—“you can’t really count on knowing anything.”

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.

People Interview About Frequency And Other Projects

Part of “Old Info And News”

Double Dipping

People May 22 2000.jpgNo one is more excited about actress Elizabeth Mitchell’s current success than her folks down home in Dallas. After a preview of her new film Frequency, “they stood at the theater door, literally accosting people on the way out,” she says. “My dad, who’s very shy, asked everyone, ‘What did you think of the girl?’ ”

For Mitchell, 30, the buzz is spreading like Texas wildfire thanks to Frequency and the TV biopic The Linda McCartney Story (airing May 21 on CBS), in which she plays Paul McCartney’s late wife, a fervent animal-rights activist. “In honor of Linda, I became a vegetarian,” says Mitchell. “My entire youth I ate steak. But now I may not go back to eating meat.”

That strong will was evident on the Frequency set, according to costar Dennis Quaid, who says Mitchell did not miss a beat after breaking her nose during the shoot. “She was positive about the whole thing,” he says. “She’s fantastic.” The daughter of Dallas attorneys, Mitchell launched her TV career on the ABC soap Loving in 1994. “I was a perfectionist; I’d tell the writers, ‘I can’t say this!’…So I got fired.” She bounced back in 1998 with HBO’s Gia, playing Angelina Jolie‘s bisexual lover. Single in real life, Mitchell, who now lives in L.A., hopes for a more traditional love life. “I want kids everywhere,” she says. “I want to eat Häagen-Dazs and get broad hips. If you try to stay young forever, you don’t really live.”

Venice Interview: Linda McCartney is on the right Frequency

Linda McCartney is on the right Frequency

 

They say that the true test of a great actor is whether he or she can stand the test of time, giving an equally impressive performance when they’re old and winkled, as when they’re young and beautiful, Elizabeth Mitchell must be relieved because she’s passed the test with flying colors at a very young age.

In the New Line Cinema release, Frequency, Elizabeth plays Julia Sullivan, wife of fire-fighter Frank (Dennis Quaid) and mother to John (played as an adult by James Caviezel). During the course of the film – a supernatural thriller that covers 30 years – Elizabeth goes from a beautiful young mother to a still-spry senior citizen, and plays both with equal aplomb. Pretty heady stuff for the eldest daughter (of three) of two lawyers who was born in Dallas.

L.A. Firefighters | Interview With Elizabeth

Part of “Old Info And News”

Star Track | Life After Soaps
Elizabeth Mitchell | Hot Stuff

LAFirefighters elizabeth mitchell.jpgElizabeth Mitchell (Loving) finds herself putting out fires on the home front in the new Fox series L.A. Firefighters. Her character, Laura Malloy, is a schoolteacher who is uneasy with her husband’s dangerous job as a fireman.

“She’s strong woman who is totally confused right now,” say Mitchell. “She’s crazy in love with her husband, Jack (Jarrod Emick), but he is constantly gone, and she is always afraid is going to die. She’s a mothering person who’s always wanted a mothering-type life and she doesn’t have one.”

The actress is used to the Sturm und Drang – she was on a soap, after all – but the on-location shooting schedule and single-camera technique have taken some getting used to.

“I enjoy it, but it is very hard. One day I had to burst into tears about 100 times, ” she recalls. “It was for three or four different shots of one scene, so that was really fascinating for me. On the soap you did the same scene once, maybe twice and only three times if you were really bad.”

“Being outside is weird, too,” Mitchell continues. “It’s physically a lot harder than soaps because you’re awake longer and on the set longer. All my stuff is done on location. We’ve shot on a beach and on a playground – even our bedroom is on locations!”

These bedroom scenes are pretty steamy, thanks to the hunky Emick, who made a name for himself on Broadway (including Miss Saigon and Damn Yankees, for which he won a Tony) before heading west.

According to Mitchell, “All the women on the set were saying ‘My god, where did he come from?’ Our first scene was a love scene, by the way. I had never met him before, but he is delightful. He’s a strong actor, and he’s right there with you in every scene.”

Mitchell keeps in touch with her former Loving co-stars “in a roundabout way, through different members of the crew.  Everyone is so spread out these days, but sometimes I’ll see someone and it’s great.”

When Trucker (Robert Tyler) went off in search of Trisha (Noelle Beck), sources on the set speculated that Dinah Lee’s days in Corinth were numbered. They were right. Mitchell will leave the show for storyline-dictated reasons, confirms a spokesperson for Loving. At press time, the rep could not provide Mitchell’s last air date.

Loving | SOM Interview: “Cry Me A River”

Part of “Old Info And News”

March 21, 1995

som 32195.jpgCry me a river

Elizabeth Mitchell (Dinah Lee) was so drained after crying her eyes out over Trucker’s depature that she couldn’t bear shedding one more tear. Unfortunately, technical foul-ups required her to repeat the plaintive performance six times! “I got upset and said, ‘Why do we have to do this again?'” confides Elizabeth. “I felt so bad for yelling, but I couldn’t take it anymore.” She was particularly saddened that the crew, “the nicest guys I’ve ever met,” bore the brunt of her explosion. “I wasn’t upset with them in particular, just a the world,” she says with great sincerity. “So the next day, I baked everybody brownies and said I was sorry.” Her co-workers appreciated the peace offering and tried to wipe away her embarrassment. “They gave me a hug and told me not to worry about it. But crying a lot is hard and can be really draining after a while.”
