We found this old and nice article about Liz.
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.

We got these photos from The Beast‘s set. In the only ones you can see her face, Liz looks adorable, doesn’t she?! <3
This show was so great, Alice is one of her best characters! If you haven’t seen it, you should watch the clips in our video archive.

The actor in these scenes with Elizabeth (Ian Paul Cassidy) posted these clips from The Beast on youtube. They’re in a better quality (especially the second episode) than the ones we already have into the archive, so we thought to upload them as well. This show deserved more luck, Elizabeth’s character is one of our favorites. <3 It would be so great to get this show, The Lyon’s Den and The LindaMcCartney Story on bluray or at least on DVD.
