Part of “Old Info And News”
Every time Elizabeth Mitchell returns home to Los Angeles from the set of the ABC hit Lost, her husband asks her the same question: “So, are you dead yet?” Mitchell, speaking to Back Stage from the Oahu, Hawaii, set of the show, lets loose a deep laugh and admits she can’t blame him: In its three years on the air, Last has sent a number of series regulars to the grave. When Mitchell agreed to join up, for the third season, she watched the program and recalls seeing “two people I thought were lovely get shot within seconds of each other, with no fanfare whatsoever.” She muses, “And I thought, ‘Oh, so that’s how it goes on the show.'”
Though nothing is ever certain in the land of Lost, odds are Mitchell isn’t going anywhere for a while. Since the last season opened on the previously unseen character Juliet, audiences have been taken by Mitchell’s complex, sympathetic portrait of her. Though she was originally presented as one of the Others–the mysterious sect terrorizing the castaways–it soon became apparent that Juliet was under the Others’ thumb as well.
