UPDATE #1: We’ve just added the video in the media archive so you can download it. Enjoy 🙂
This is AMAZING! One of the most beautiful videos I have ever seen. No, that’s not true, this is the most beautiful video I have ever seen! ADORABLE!
This past summer actress Elizabeth Mitchell, most known for her role as Dr. Juliet Burke on ABC’s television series “Lost,” sailed on Disney Cruise Line’s very first voyage to Alaska.
Joined by her husband and son, Elizabeth shared with us the highlights of her family’s experience.
Watch this video to see an Alaskan cruise with Disney through her eyes.
If you could ask Elizabeth one question about her Disney cruise vacation, what would it be?

The “Answers to Nothing” star loved the freedom she had to plumb the depths of her indie character’s emotions
Sitting down with actress Elizabeth Mitchell was a challenge. As an admitted “Lost” fanatic, I was a staunch member of Team Juliet. I found Mitchell’s “is-she-good-or-is-s?he-evil” character, Dr. Juliet Burke, one of the most compelling reasons to stay with the often maddening series during its six-year run. Talking with Mitchell one-on-one, it was all I could do to keep from focusing on “Lost” for the duration of the interview, including the series’ controversial last episode. Mitchell went straight from “Lost” to another high-profile show, a remake of the sci-fi “V,” in which she got to do battle with some very smart and attractive aliens. Somehow, in between shooting the finale of “V” and the closer for “Lost” (Juliet had been killed off but death never meant much on that show!), Mitchell managed to fit in a deeply moving appearance in Matthew Leutwyler’s ensemble piece, “Answers to Nothing,” currently playing in cities around the country.

Thanks so much to Cristiane to send us this interview and the photos in the magazine!
Finally some of the photos from last june photoshoot session by Alvin Nguyen are out:
Elizabeth Mitchell has played it all during her career as an actress. She’s been a doctor, a lover, a friend, and even a psychotic maniac. But now Elizabeth Mitchell is getting a chance to play a different role in real life—Mom. The warmhearted disposition that has made Mitchell’s many characters so lovable, transfers to motherhood with ease, even as she has to gently usher her young son out of the commandeered playroom being used for our interview. He politely obliges, a testament to the great job she’s doing in her new role, something audiences have come to expect from Mitchell. We sat down and got the scoop on growing up in Dallas, what it was like to work on Lost and even a little bit about her new project Answers to Nothing.

Velvet-voiced Elizabeth Mitchell is always a pleasure to watch on-screen or onstage owing to her smart role choices. Most people know and love her as Dr. Juliet Burke on “Lost” and as Erica Evans, humanity’s best hope against reptilian invaders, on “V”; but she’s also made an impression as Angelina Jolie’s lover in “Gia” and with supporting roles in “Nurse Betty,” “The Santa Clause 2,” “Running Scared” and “The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause.”
In “Answers to Nothing,” an ensemble drama opening this Friday, Mitchell plays a woman desperately trying to have a baby with husband Dane Cook, even though she suspects he is cheating on her. Mitchell chatted with us about her premonition before she got this role, how she felt about Juliet’s death on “Lost,” what would have happened on “V,” and how reaching out and touching Angelina Jolie helped land Mitchell’s first film role in “Gia.”
Kate, your character in “Answers to Nothing,” lies to herself to remain happy. When she accidentally sees a suspicious text message on her husband’s phone from another woman, why doesn’t she say anything?
Kate doesn’t say anything — it’s almost like she knew — but I felt pretty devastated when I read it. She wants the baby more than anything. I think she has a window of time to do everything she wants to do. She’s 40 and she has a small period of time to have this baby. They’re in line to do in utero, which is thousands and thousands of dollars. I think you get to a point in life, which is not healthy, where you just keep saying you’ll deal with it later. They keep getting so separate from each other.
