Wayne Kramer (Running Scared’s Director) About Liz

emfc_runningscared_0000000001612.jpgThis is an interview Wayne Kramer (Running Scared‘s director) did yesterday in which he said very nice things about Elizabeth. 😀

Bruce Altman and Elizabeth Mitchell as Dez and Edele were also cast fairly late in the process. The initial idea was to re-team Kyle MacLachlan and Laura Dern from Blue Velvet and have them play Dez and Edele. Kyle was open to it, but Laura wasn’t, so Kyle didn’t want to do it without her.

I still think it would have been a fun approach, but I couldn’t be happier with what Bruce and Elizabeth brought to these fucked-up characters.

I have such enormous respect for both of them taking on the roles, because nobody—and I mean nobody—in Hollywood wants to play pedophiles. They were both amazing and creepy and very thoughtful in their approach.

Elizabeth told me that she wanted to play Edele by never actually touching any of the children on-screen (which was actually creepier) and I was okay with that.

I told them they were essentially playing alien beings inside human bodies and they should appear stiff and awkward as if they were being controlled by these aliens from inside.

Elizabeth even had little plastic surgery scars applied to the back of her ears (which you can’t see on-screen), because she felt that Edele had had a facelift, which would also account for the stiffness of her facial movements. Bruce had never been squibbed before and was having anxiety over being shot on-screen. When he cries out, that is real panic on his part from having the squibs explode.

They were both a pleasure to work with and I’ll always be grateful for their courage as actors in taking on the roles.

After the “read more button” you can read the part about the scene with Edele.

Santa Clause 2 | Curiosity About The Dance Scene

http://67.media.tumblr.com/47ea82c7b7d7b50bd683897e0f0dc39f/tumblr_mybfgyNaia1qcns0vo2_250.gifHey everyone, we recently bought Santa Clause 2 OST and in the booklet there is something written by Michael Lembeck (the movie’s director) about Elizabeth and the song of the scene where she dances at the end credits. Read what he said! 😀

The Eddie Money and Ronnie Spector tune, “Everybody Loves Christmas,” was the first song not already pre-written into the movie that we chose. I knew I was gong to do a sequence under the end credits and was looking for something really driving, really fun with lyrics that would inspire Elizabeth Mitchell (Mrs. Claus) to dance. We went through a ton of songs that would work, but when I played our fave five for Elizabeth, she really loved this one. When you see the end of the movie, you’ll know why.

This is a really lovely story that makes that terrific scene even better!

Oh, there is also a pic of Liz in the booklet! 🙂

Kristin’s Christmas Past | Australian DVD With Liz On The Cover

Hey lovelies, we bought various versions of Kristin’s Christmas Past on DVD, but the Australian one is the most beautiful because it has Liz on the cover (back cover and disc). Look how cool it is! It’s region 4 but if you have a region free player it will work just fine.

Amber Coney About Dolls Behaving Badly

http://elizabeth-mitchell.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/Dolls_Behaving_Badly-96x150.jpgFor sure you remember Dolls Behaving Badly. During an interview from last February, Liz said: “I wish there were progresses. I’ve never got to the point where I really felt like I wanted to do it, but I still have a soft spot in my heart for it.”

Well they have just released an interview with Amber Coney where she mentions Elizabeth and the book. This is what she said:

In addition to auditioning, she [Amber Coney] is also writing a book adaptation for her co-star Elizabeth Mitchell. “She passed a book along to me and was like ‘I’d like to make this, I don’t know’,” she recounts “I’m going to try to write the thing, so once I have a moment I’m going to get back and write that.”

The book is beautiful and it would be great if one day they made the movie and Liz was still very involved. 🙂
