Tell Us About Yourself(ie): Elizabeth Mitchell – Interview by

What’s your wallpaper on your phone and/or computer?
[See photo of phone.]
When you walk into a bar, what do you typically order?
Club soda with lime. Champagne. It sake. Depends on the bar.
What’s the one word you are guilty of using too often?
“Seriously” or “honestly” — oh, dear. I’ve been told “lovely” is in there as well.
What is the last thing you searched for on Google?
Real estate, always real estate.
Who is the last person that called or texted you?
My friend Roxy from Austin.
What was the last awkward situation you were in and how did you handle it?
Honestly, I like awkward moments. Kinda delightfully human. I probably laughed. Or tugged down or up to cover [up], possibly with an accompanying “Well, that happened.”
When is the last time you went to a theater?
Next to Normal. Blew me away. Heard a lot of different thoughts on it. But my night. With a dear friend. It was magic.
What TV show should everyone should be watching?
Orphan Black.
And what is your TV guilty pleasure?
Rehab Addict or Treehouse Masters.
What’s the first CD you bought?
CD (giggle) — [my] first record [was] the single of “Total Eclipse of the Heart.”
What is the one food you cannot resist?
Today: fresh berries, half and half, little bit of brown sugar with dark chocolate chips in the bottom.
What music are you currently listening to?
Pandora. Indie singer/songwriter mix. Van Morrison seeded with Brandi Carlile. The Rolling Stones seeded with Eric Clapton.
What movie makes you laugh the most?
Bridesmaids. Katherine Hepburn with Cary Grant or Spencer Tracy in pretty much anything. When Harry Met Sally.
What drives you absolutely crazy?
Cruelty. And what I call “puppy kicking,” when you hurt someone on purpose, who can’t or won’t hurt you back and you do it on purpose. Grrrrrrrr. Don’t do it in front of me.
Pick one: kittens or puppies?
Puppies. Prefer dogs, though.
New York or Los Angeles?
New York.
Comedy or drama?
Combination of both “laughter through tears is my favorite emotion” (quote, Steel Magnolias).
Bacon or Nutella?
Bacon or Nutella? Don’t make me choose!
’80s or ’90s?
’90s. Teenage years were the ’80s. For my fellow geeks, enough said.
Hannah Montana or Lizzie McGuire?
Pass, no idea.
