|| PRESS RELEASE ||Revolution – Our entire way of life depends on electricity. So what would happen if it just stopped working? Well, one day, like a switch turned off, the world is suddenly thrust back into the dark ages. Planes fall from the sky, hospitals shut down, and communication is impossible. And without any modern technology, who can tell us why? Now, 15 years later, life is back to what it once was long before the industrial revolution: families living in quiet cul-de-sacs, and when the sun goes down lanterns and candles are lit. Life is slower and sweeter. Or is it? On the fringes of small farming communities, danger lurks. And a young woman’s life is dramatically changed when a local militia arrives and kills her father, who mysteriously – and unbeknownst to her – had something to do with the blackout. This brutal encounter sets her and two unlikely companions off on a daring coming-of-age journey to find answers about the past in the hopes of reclaiming the future.

|| PLOT || Revolution follows a group of characters – perhaps better called survivors – struggling to live and find their missing loved ones in a world where all forms of energy have mysteriously ceased to exist some fifteen years before. The focus in the series will be on the Matheson family. The family possesse “an item that is the key to not only finding out what happened fifteen years ago, but also a possible way to reverse its effects. However, they must elude warlords and militias who want that power for themselves.”

  • Elizabeth Mitchell killed it on the Revolution set today. Deeply blessed to work w the lovely, talented folks on this show.
  • Yay off to spend the day working w the incomparable Elizabeth Mitchell on Revolution.
  • Tim: Elizabeth Mitchell is a complete dream to work with.

    Tim: She is!
  • Just wrapped for the night. Elizabeth Mitchell is just plain wonderful to work with.

  • Okay, big, giant talent-crush on Elizabeth Mitchell. What a smart, funny joy she is.
  • Yay! Elizabeth Mitchell is wonderful. A joy to work with.
  • Liz Mitchell rock
Maria Howell
  • Elizabeth (Mitchell), I could just eat her up. She’s wonderful. And Tim Guinee, of course, I can’t say enough about him. The whole experience has been wonderful, but those are the ones that I’ve been close up to more frequently.”
  • Q:what do you think about Elizabeth Mitchell?
    A: Love her work.
  • Q:Elizabeth is a great person really?
    A: Yes yes and yes. I love her
  • Q: What is it like to work with Elizabeth Mitchell?
  • A: LOVE HER!!! Great!
Giancarlo Esposito
  • “I would say Elizabeth because she is so strong, and forceful and beautiful. What she has to do is smile and she’ll get her away.”
  • It’s a pleasure to work with her.
  • Q : Each of your characters interact with her, but at different levels and I was wondering if you could tell us how it is to work with her and talk about your different experiences?
    A : Yes, we love Elizabeth and I was thinking about that just this morning because we are missing her. And I’m sure she would like to show her love for you and Europe and this great place, Monaco. She’s sweet, kind, true, sincere, responsible and she does a great job. So having her around on set is always a delicious day, a delicious moment to share.
  • “After Lana, Elizabeth Mitchell is my favourite person to work with. She’s lovely and wonderful and charismatic.” [NEW]
Eric Kripke (REVOLUTION creator)
  • We’re so smitten with what Elizabeth is doing with the character that we’re just writing more and more and more for her. She’s so good.”
  • She is a fun character to write. We think she is so relatable and sympathetic, Elizabeth Mitchell did such an incredible job, making her complicated and likable, but fraught”
David Lyons
  • Working with her is a genuine experience: she is completely involved into the adventure.
  • Q : Each of your characters interact with her, but at different levels and I was wondering if you could tell us how it is to work with her and talk about your different experiences?
    A: It has been great. She is incredible, she surpasses everybody else, there is a superb strength that she brings into all her characters and especially the character of Rachel where she is this strong mother but also a very benevolent and neutral person. And she brings this strength into life and into her work. I think working with her is an incredible experience because she is so engaged. I mean, the whole cast is great to work with, and we get along well and we are working together. She is the main female character and I could never say enough good things about her.
Billy Burke
  • They often ask us, which is the choice or the dialogue affected us the most… with Elizabeth, all I can say is that she is a good kisser. (Esposito laughs loudly)
  • Q : Elizabeth Mitchell was in Monte Carlo a few years ago and she is adorable, I’m sure you know that.
    A: She wanted to come this time as well, but she couldn’t.
  • Q : Each of your characters interact with her, but at different levels and I was wondering if you could tell us how it is to work with her and talk about your different experiences?
    A:That’s true. She’s very light-spirited. It is precisely what is great about her.
Tracy Spiridakos
  • She’s pretty much the sweetest, and funniest, and I love her.
  • Q: Are there any fun behind-the-scenes moments you can share with us?
    A: Lots! What can I tell you about? We make fun of each other a lot. On Thursday, we were filming and the crew just couldn’t wait to get out. It was a long weekend. Me, Zak [Orth], Elizabeth [Mitchell] and Daniella [Alonso] could not stop laughing. You know when you’re a little kid and people tell you to be quiet and it makes you laugh more, people were like, “We want to go home,” and we [couldn’t stop laughing]. I can’t think of any pranks that we’ve done to each other. It’s just ongoing teasing. I’d tell you and you’d be like, “That’s not funny,” but it’s funny to us. Me and Elizabeth do this cat noise thing while the camera is on our backs. We’ll make a weird cat sound to screw up the other person.
  • Q : Each of your characters interact with her, but at different levels and I was wondering if you could tell us how it is to work with her and talk about your different experiences?
    A: When Liz and I are on set, we are like children trapped in adult bodies, we laugh about everything, all the time, and we always enjoy a breather. We turn our backs to the camera and we start doing this cat noise. The sound department dosn’t know where it comes from and they think there are cats on the set (laughs). And we keep doing this over and over again until someone says “That’s weird. Are there cats here”? And in that moment you can see our shoulders move because we laugh all the time (laughs). There are so many moments among us on set, I know it’s wrong (laughs), we just try to have fun, and you can see my head and my shoulders going up and down laughing like that, And I do it very often, it’s not really professional (laughs).
Stephen Collins
  • Q: How’s working with Elizabeth Mitchell
    A: She’s inspiring
  • Q: How’s working with Elizabeth Mitchell
    A: Intence, funny, surprising, safe.
  • Q: Who’s the loudest and quietest on set?
    A: Loudest: Liz. Quietest: Billy.
  • And the thing that shocked me about Liz [Mitchell] is that I expected her – just having seen her work – to be very grim and very serious, and one of those very kind of, ‘Hi, how are you?’ never cracking a smile on the set kind of people. And she’s like this [friendly and happy] on the set all the time. In the grimmest scenes she’s [happy] right up to, ‘Scene three take four,’ and then she goes to this place of Rachel-ness. I don’t know how she does it. Actors processes are all different, but Liz more than almost anyone I know stays upbeat and bubbly and silly. Then as soon as that clapper hits and they say action, goes to this place of Rachel who is outwardly so serious all the time. But within that energetic range she has eight cagillion colors. I love working with her. She’s a really great acting partner.”And one of the things that I think is interesting about the last couple of episodes is the ways in which the different characters kind of challenge each other to find a way to keep going.Rachel’s very instrumental in that.
    We had a scene that I don’t want to say I enjoyed – I enjoyed it when it was over – very, very tough emotional scene between us in which she basically says, ‘Look, you’re the one who’s been telling me to have faith and now I’m telling you that you have to. You can’t give up.’ That’s the essence of it. When we were shooting it, Liz, as she does often, from take-to-take she’ll do something very different from what she did before or just a little different. She always keeps it fresh. In the middle of this take in which the script said something like, ‘Dad, I’m telling you…,’ she said daddy. She called me daddy and she knows I have a grown daughter, and I think she just knew as a daughter herself that that would get to me – and it did. That’s the kind of generosity in a way that not all actors have. She knew it would affect her to say it that way. Something so simple, the difference between dad and daddy, but daddy is much more vulnerable and it just hit me between the eyes or in the heart or whatever. It’s the kind of thing that Liz does when she knows the scene is difficult and she knows that you’re trying to dig down deep anyway, and she just surprises you with a little thing like that which can make all the difference.
    I love her as an acting partner because she’s always so emotionally available. The whole cast is, there’s no slouches in this cast, but playing father and daughter is particularly…it’s an interesting bond. And then with everything that happened with the reveal that Gene had been working for the patriots and the fact that Rachel almost killed him early on in the season. She was willing to put a bomb down a chimney that would have killed him but it turned out he wasn’t there, so there’s a lot of stuff between them.
Jim Barnes (Revolution writer)
  • How badass is Rachel right now? Eye to eye. Not moving an inch. Elizabeth Mitchell crushes it with just a look
Paul Grellong (Revolution writer)
  • Dig Elizabeth rock the modern day cell phone and car clicker and OH HANG ON PEOPLE WAIT WHAT Rachel’s got a taser.
Major Dodson (young Danny)
  • Ms. Mitchell is really really really nice!
  • Three years ago today I was on NBCs show Revolution. My “mom” Elizabeth Mitchell was seriously one of the nicest ladies I’ve ever met! #memories [NEW]
