Elizabeth Mitchell is having an amazing year, including an Emmy nomination for her appearance in the Lost finale and a series pickup for her sci-fi drama V. So, what could possibly make her life even sweeter?
Well, how about a reunion with Lost’s Josh Holloway on the set of V? Could it really happen? Here’s what we can tell you after talking to Elizabeth at the Creative Arts Emmys ceremony on Saturday.
Mitchell, who picked up a nomination for her appearance in “The End” episode of Lost (but who ultimately lost to Ann-Margret for her guest role on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit), says getting the nod was just the icing on the cake of her Lost run. She told us, “I’m thrilled. It’s a nice way to end. Especially after being killed off and then brought back. I don’t really understand. I feel like it’s kind of a movie. I’ll wake up and be like, ‘Oh, that was a good one. Who would’ve thought of that?’ ”
As for the reunion itself, “I came back and got to be in love with one of the hunkiest guys going.” Whoo. Nothing to complain about right? “And I never will.”
So could there be an onscreen reunion with Lost lover Josh Holloway on Mitchell’s new series V? I asked the erstwhile Juliet if she would be interesting in getting Sawyer in a few scenes with V’s Erica Evans, and she replied, “I need that, right? I agree. Wouldn’t that be wonderful? [But] c’mon, he’s a movie star. He needs to go be a movie star. He’s so delightful.” OK, yes, definitely, on the “Josh Holloway needs to be a movie star” thing, but couldn’t he make one little pit stop on another ABC series before heading off to the big screen forever?!
Interested in V even if it doesn’t have Holloway in the cast? Good, because Mitchell tells us, “It comes back in November, and we just started filming. And it’s so much better. I feel like [season one] set the groundwork and then it’s off and running, which I needed it to be. It’s more fun for me. [Erica]‘s far more intense.”
Are you looking forward to the new season of V, or are you still too attached to Lost to move on with another series?
