Hero. Villain. Mom. | Interview with Elizabeth

It contains spoilers!

Dec.12, 2009, under TV Tales

She has creeped you out as Dr. Juliet Burke on Lost and enthralled you as FBI agent Erica Evans on V. And while for many she may be a newcomer to the television landscape, Elizabeth Mitchell has been making a name for herself on the small and big screens for the last sixteen years, including sharing the spotlight with Tim Allen in The Santa Clause 2 and 3. Lately she’s had her hands full juggling two major sci-fi series and raising a four year-old son. Taking a break from all of that, Mitchell spoke to ADD from her home in Bainbridge Island, Washington, touching upon everything from stardom to motherhood to the future of television viewing.

You have this knack lately for picking these shows that involve multiple storylines. And Lost’s season five finale left you with quite the cliffhanger.
Not dramatic or anything. It happens every day in my life.

Are you going to be able to handle this extra commuting between these two shows?
It hasn’t been a problem so far. I know at some point it might be, but it hasn’t so far.

The Beast | Review About Elizabeth

Part of “Old Info And News”

the beast photoshoot elizabeth mitchell (2).jpgAnyone who can hold her own opposite Angelina Joliet has to be good. Mitchell did exactly that when she played Jolie’s lover in the HBO movie Gia.

Since then she’s co-starred with Dennis Quaid in the surprise hit Frequency and appeared in Nurse Betty with Renee Zellwegger. Not too shabby for a girl from Dallas. Plus, she played the much loved Linda McCartney in a made-for-TV biopic and lived to tell the tale. In ABC’s The Beast she is the audience’s entree into the media machine when she’s recruited to join a news organization intent on putting her right in the middle of the stories she covers. We’re betting she’ll make it look like a cake walk at the church bazaar.

US Weekly gives ABC’s The Beast Two Stars.

ABC Wednesdays 10pm | Series Premiere, June 13

The over-the-top premiere episode of this ensemble drama really piles on the goodies: a mad bomber, a televised execution in the electric chair, a nude scene featuring Elizabeth Mitchell (the lovely lesbian from both ER and HBO’s Gia). She plays Alice Allenby, a magazine writer who is persuaded by mogul Jackson Burns (Frank Langella) to work for his new 14-hours news channel.

As one character explains, the call the channel the Beast “because it’s always hungry.”

You can tell the staff is hip because anchor Reese McFadden (Jason Geddrick) doesn’t shave, drinks whiskey at office meetings and talks like Dennis Miller with worse gag writers. The premiere is so frenetic that you can overlook the yadda-yadda about media power (“The camera is God”).

Adding to the journalistic navel-gazing is the channel’s odd polity of broadcasting its inner workings live on the Internet via feeds controlled by a mysterious figure Harry. (“Harry is God,” says Burns, which means, logically, that Harris is the camera.)
