LOST‘S LETHAL BUT LOVELY LADY
by MARY BETH HEATON
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.

Two roles, no waiting | By William Keck
HOLLYWOOD — For actress Elizabeth Mitchell, there’s no escaping babies.
As Tim Allen’s Mrs. Claus, she gives birth to the spawn of St. Nick in The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause, which opened last weekend to $19.5 million.
As Juliet on ABC’s Lost, she is a fertility doctor closely connected to the children abducted by The Others.
And in her home today, she’s playing mom to C.J., her first child with her stand-up-comic husband, Chris Soldevilla. Like Dad, the 13-month-old appears to be quite the little comic himself. When Mitchell holds out her arms for him to walk to her, he toddles right past her and giggles.
There also are two dogs, two cats and several boxes of Krispy Kreme doughnuts in the house, which has been left in shambles after hosting relatives in town for her Santa premiere.
Before posing for the camera, Mitchell, 36, slips on a black sweater, quickly combs her hair and dabs on a touch of makeup.
C.J. was just 5 weeks old when Mitchell began shooting her Santa role as a pregnant Mrs. Claus. The costumes conveniently disguised what remained from the 70 pounds she had gained while carrying C.J.
“Being so womanly and that voluptuous was heavenly because I’ve always been such a stick,” she says in a soft, melodic voice.
“The behind you see in Santa Clause is all mine. I am very low-maintenance when it comes to my look. If it takes me more than 10 minutes to get my funny little face ready, I find it exhausting.”
At the Santa premiere, Allen, who is a big Lost fan, accosted her for inside dirt but was unsuccessful. Tonight’s episode (9 ET/PT) is the last of 2006.
“There’s a really great scene — a jaw-dropper,” Mitchell teases. “When my husband read the scene with me, he said, ‘Oh my God.’ Everything is not what it seems. Pay careful attention to the Juliet and Jack (Matthew Fox) characters. There is one look on Matt’s face that makes the whole episode worth watching.”
An undeniable attraction has been developing between the two as Jack is being kept prisoner in an old dolphin tank as Juliet’s study subject.
She and Fox recently shot a scene for the show’s Feb. 7 return, in which “all hell has just broken loose, and Jack says something that makes her smile — enough to see that there’s something in them that speaks to each other. Honestly, as far as personality types, Matt’s my favorite.”
That February episode also will reveal more about Juliet’s fertility project with flashbacks exploring her past. “She’s going to get in a lot of trouble pretty soon,” Mitchell hints. “I don’t know what’s going to happen to poor Juliet.”

Don’t cry for Doctor Jack Shepard, Lost fans. Sure, he’s been captured by hostile Others, bound and gagged and traded away like a Barry Bonds baseball card by Michael. That’s the bad news. The good news is: There’s an excellent chance of hot, transgressive Othersex on the horizon. Elizabeth Mitchell, lately of E.R. and the Santa Clause franchise, is joining the cast of Lost. She’ll play “Juliet,” a possible love interest for Jack. And where is Jack? With The Others. So what is Juliet? The Other woman, baby!
Apart from mating with Tim Allen-in-a-fatsuit (for which she received a Purple Heart and a Congressional Medal of Humiliation), Mitchell’s played a child molester (in Wayne Kramer’s bug-eyed Running Scared) and Angelina Jolie’s lover in Gia. She brings with her a certain… edge.
Jack will have a “dangerous” alternative to the increasingly squishy Kate — one that will split his loyalties. Ah, those crafty Others! Always hitting below the belt! Watch out, Jack! Kitten’s got Clause!
