Lost 3×07 | Variety Review

Part of “Old Info And News”

season 3 photoshoot puple tshirt elizabeth mitchell (3).jpg[..] The story also flashes back to reveal more about Juliet (Elizabeth Mitchell), one of the Others who has befriended Jack but whose motives have remained murky. As with the members of the plane’s tail section who turned up in season two, expanding the show’s mythology to incorporate back stories for the Others is another deft sleight-of-hand trick, creating a whole new layer with which to dazzle and confound. [..]

Casting the likes of Emerson, Mitchell and guest Robin Weigert of “Deadwood” has been instrumental in maintaining the show’s status among TV’s elite, but this upcoming flight of episodes should be crucial in determining how much gas the “Lost” tank has left, both creatively and among that wider audience. On the first score, anyway, this new hour is pretty damn good and includes one genuinely jarring moment. [..]

The Trades Interview: “Lost with the Others”

Part of “Old Info And News”

Elizabeth Mitchell has played many diverse roles throughout the course of her career, but none have thrust her into the spotlight the way her role on Lost has. Mitchell is drawing acclaim from both fans and critics for her pitch-perfect portrayal of Juliet, one of the show’s enigmatic “Others.”

“Up to now, this is definitely a high point for me in my career and in my life,” Mitchell says. “It almost feels like all the crazy work I did led up to me being able to do this.”

According to Mitchell, part of the reason she was excited to join the cast of Lost stems from the fact that she’s been a fan of the series from the very beginning. “My husband and I both were [fans of the show before I joined the cast],” she tells me. “The first episode made our jaws drop. It was really an astonishing episode.”

Mitchell recalls that when she first arrived on-set to join the cast, Evangeline Lilly went out of her way to make her feel welcome. “Everyone was really welcoming so it’s hard to singe anyone out [as being the most welcoming], but Evangeline is truly lovely. She was welcoming and gracious and kind and all the things you would hope someone would be.”

She adds, “Evangeline said the first day, ‘Either people are laid back when they get here or they are when they leave.’ I have to say, that is how those people are…They’re very kind people, and you rarely get that. There’s always a bad egg, and I just haven’t found one here.”

While there may not be a bad egg among the cast members, on the show, the “Others” ensure that Jack, Kate, Sawyer and the other castaways will always have a few bad eggs to deal with.

During this season’s first six episodes, Juliet formed a bond with Jack while the “Others” were holding him captive. Although Juliet seems to display genuine affection for Jack, her motives remain mysterious. “I firmly believe that she has a definite objective,” Mitchell says. “Even if you’re bad, you always think you’re good. I think she’s operating towards an objective she feels to be the right thing. She’s doing everything she thinks is right. That can lead to fairly ambiguous behavior depending on who she’s trying to convince of what at what time.”

As far as Juliet’s bond with Jack, Mitchell remarks, “I actually think she likes Jack. I think that’s genuine. I think she admires him and thinks he’s an interesting person. I think she’s as honest with him as she can be. That’s what makes the dynamic interesting.”

Some of the questions surrounding Juliet will be answered in this week’s episode, which will feature a glimpse of her past. “She’s a lot different than who you think she is,” Mitchell hints.

When I ask her if it’s possible that Juliet could have a greater position of power than the audience has been led to believe to this point, Mitchell responds, “Everyone seems to look up to her in very subtle ways. They answer to her. She can get by with very little in terms of action with a lot of result. She can nod and things are accomplished. To me, that denotes that she does have some power.”

In describing her character, she adds, “She’s incredibly complex. I hate to tell you that all the roles that you get are not this complex. Every time I see the writers I say thank you.”

Lost Executive Producer Damon Lindelof is similarly thankful for what Mitchell brings to the role. “She somehow plays the girl next door… but a girl next door you wouldn’t want to piss off,” Lindelof tells me. “The fact that she is both vulnerable and threatening is something incredibly hard to portray. And yet Elizabeth pulls it off big time.”

Mitchell humbly takes such praise in stride. “I had a professor one time who said if you listen to the good stuff, you also have to listen to the bad stuff,” she modestly states.

If Mitchell continues to deliver the type of quality performances audiences have come to expect from her, it’s unlikely that she’ll be hearing any of the bad stuff any time soon.

TV Guide Interview: “Things You Need to Know About Lost’s Return”

Five Things You Need to Know About Lost’s Return

It’s a Lost milestone! When the edge-of-your-seat drama returns tonight it will focus for the first time on the backstory of an Other: the appealing and perplexing Juliet. After the 13-week break, here are some memory-jogging titbits from the backstories of Jack, Kate and Sawyer, all also featured prominently during tonight’s Juliet-centric episode. […]

With Kate gone, Jack will grow closer to fellow physician Juliet. In the Feb. 21 episode, he’ll also get some flashback passion from guest star Bai Ling, a mysterious woman with a connection to the good doc’s bad-boy tattoos. Nevertheless, says executive producer Carlton Cuse, the bond between Kate and Jack “is kind of the ultimate relationship.”

2. The Others aren’t going anywhere. While some fans have lamented the airtime given to those shady Others since the start of Season 3, producers remain staunchly committed to exploring Lost’s new world. In fact, the Feb. 7 premiere focuses on the inscrutable Juliet, the book-club-presiding, let-Ben-die-pleading Other played by Elizabeth Mitchell. Flashbacks reveal Juliet’s past, including a sick sister and a decidedly low self-esteem, thanks to a decidedly no-good ex-husband. “Even though Juliet’s brilliant, she couldn’t see herself that way,” Mitchell reveals. “Her identity was tied to the man she was married to, and she wasn’t able to be strong on her own.” Producers also hint that upcoming episodes will revisit the Others’ Wisteria Lane-esque compound. Teases cocreator Damon Lindelof, “Where is that place we saw the Others?” Beats us. But we can reveal that Creepy Eyepatch Guy — who appeared on the Others’ TV monitors — will be back. As will villainous Ethan, who died in Season 1: He pops up in Juliet’s flashbacks in a way that sheds light on his interest in Claire’s baby.

Lost | Carlton Cuse About Juliet And Jack

season 3 photoshoot puple tshirt elizabeth mitchell.jpg“Lost” producer Carlton Cuse told critics that the Jack-Juliet (Elizabeth Mitchell) relationship will be explored as well as the Claire-Charlie (Emilie de Ravin and Dominic Monaghan) story.

“It doesn’t mean that we are abandoning the other story line [about The Others] by any stretch of the imagination,” Lindelof says. “It’s just we’re not committing as much screen time to the telling of that story once we get our hero characters back together.”

Hollywood.com Interview With Lost Actors & Creators

Part of “Old Info And News”

February 5, 2007

ABC TCA Winter Press Tour Elizabeth Mitchell (3).jpgFaithful fans of ABC’s hit drama Lost may have been feeling as marooned as the island’s castaways without a single new episode for three full months. But viewers are out to sea no more: The show returns on Feb. 8 with an interrupted run of 16 episodes, straight through to the season finale. And if that’s too long to wait, the creators and cast gave Hollywood.com a teasing peek at the twists and turns to come.

Executive producer Damon Lindelof described the direction of the show, which the writers plotted out at a summit in Hawaii as Season Two wrapped. “As we were coming into Season Three, our mission was ‘We’re going to answer the question in these first six episodes: Why did The Others kidnap Kate, Jack and Sawyer? Why those three? What is the play?’”

“We knew where Season Three was going to end,” said Lindelof. “We’ve known for quite some time that Season Three was going to start with the crash from The Others’ point of view, that we wanted to introduce this character Juliet…all of those things.

Now that the first six episodes that aired last fall in a mini-season format tackled those mysteries—and in classic Lost form, raising all kinds of new ones, Lindelof said “The next level is ‘Who are these people? Why have they been taking kids? Why were they abducting people? How long have they been on the island? Why were they having book clubs? Who is Ben in relation to Juliet?’

Lindelof says that viewers who have been languishing with those questions since late 2006 will get some major answers straight out of the blocks: “In Episode 3-7, the new season premiere, we answer a very significant mystery about Juliet, at least in terms of how she came to the island and why,” he explained. “And that begins to posit sort of new questions, some of which will be answered by the end of the season, and some of which won’t.

Elizabeth Mitchell, who plays Juliet, told Hollywood.com she was intrigued to begin to unravel her character’s enigmatic past in the flashback. “There’s a lot that’s fleshed out there and if you are interested in the character of Juliet, it’s a nice one to watch because you see so much more,” she said. “I believe what happens to Juliet and what her experience is feeds into what she’s doing and why she’s doing it … Some of it threw me. Some of it, I was like, ‘Oh my God!’”

However, Mitchell said she’s under no illusion that she will become a permanent resident of the island. “I think that they like the character but at the same time, you could die at any minute, so you never know,” she admitted. “I believe they’ve invested a lot of time in building up the character so it might be interesting to see where she goes, but then again it might be really interesting to build her up and see her die.” Mitchell said Juliet appears in at least five of the upcoming episodes, though she’s yet to work with any of the cast members she hasn’t already encountered, which begs another question.
