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.

USA Today Interview For The Linda McCartney Story

Part of “Old Info And News”

WEST HOLLYWOOD – Who has ever heard of an actress who craves anonymity? Yet Elizabeth Mitchell swears she thrives on being thoroughly obscure.

“Elizabeth who?” you’re probably saying . That’s music to her ears. But after Sunday night, Mitchell might not blend so easily into the crowd . She has the lead in The Linda McCartney Story (9 p.m. ET/PT), a two-hour CBS movie about the woman – photographer, activist, mother and cancer victim – who spent 30 years married to Beatle Paul McCartney (Gary Bakewell).

Swathed in a long, swirling dress, the tall, slender actress – who’s a bundle of nervous energy – is curled up in the corner of an old couch in the Chateau Marmont hotel lobby. No one bothers her. There isn’t much traffic in the lobby, but actor Rob Lowe, being interviewed by Entertainment Tonight in the courtyard, is getting all the attention.

Is Mitchell’s anti-celebrity stance for real or a line she’s handing the media to make herself more interesting? “I’m sincere,” insists Mitchell, 30, who was born in Dallas and raised in Los Angeles. “Nobody knows who I am, which is heavenly. I’m not totally prepared for the attention you get when you’re a celebrity.
