What did you first think when you got the call and they told you that you’re gonna be part of Once Upon A Time?
Oh I was really excited, coz’ I’ve kind of like heard that it was a possibily, but I hadn’t really gotten a call about it. And then there was this wonderful little fansite that.. I have the most gorgeous fans in the whole world and they put up like a mock over the…on this REALLY amazing site. And it was me all dressed as the Snow Queen. And I was like :O
I really felt like they kind of did it. Yeah they did because after that came up… then I got the call and I was so grateful. I said WOW!
How did you joining the show come about?
I always go to that fan site of mine, only because I feel like they know what’s going on before I do. [Laughs] They said something about “Elizabeth Mitchell being considered for Frozen part,” and I was like, “That doesn’t make sense. That’s not really age appropriate.” Then I got a call saying that [executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis] are wondering, if this role came about, would I be interested in doing it? I was like, “Yes!” My manager was like, “Give it some thought.” “I did, yes.” I played really hard to get, obviously. Then [Adam and Eddy] called me and they were so excited about it. We had such a great talk about villains, which I can’t really go into because it has to do with what happens [on the show]. My whole theory has always been that villains never know they are villains. That seems to be the case here, even though she does some crazy stuff. It’s been really fun.
Email from Brink Magazine editor (March 26, 2013)
Elizabeth mentioned that all on her own, so you’ve really made a great impact with your site.
On March 2013 Elizabeth did an interview for Brink Magazine and she mentioned us. This is what she said:
What was your reaction the first time you saw a fansite dedicated to you?
A nice one? I was just grateful. One site [www.elizabeth-mitchell.org/] is incredibly sweet. I’ll go on there anytime I want to see if there’s nice things being said, because it’s run by a bunch of really lovely people. I don’t really search around too much, because I find, when you do, it’s like sticking your hand under the couch cushion without checking with your eyes first. You’re gonna get bit by something. I don’t really do it that often. I think if I did, it would hurt my acting a little, so I try to protect it a little bit.
This is the transcription of what she said:
Q: So you’re not on twitter and you’re not on Facebook…
Elizabeth Mitchell: I’m not. Someone posing as meon Facebook. And it’s ????
Q: There is a lovely(?) Elizabeth Mitchell Fan Club on there.
EM: Which is so nice! That’s where I go to get clips and stuff!
Q: For yourself?
EM: Yeah! If I need clips like to send to somebody or something yeah, I go to my fansite!
Q: These fans are the best!
EM: I know! My… my… I called my manager, because he needed something funny and he went like way back in time and he was like “WOOOW”.
It’s like, it’s like an encyclopedia!
Q: It is.
EM: It’s gorgeous!
Q: It’s an online archive of everything you’ve ever done!
EM: Awww I’m so happy????
Q: Candids photos of you eating ice-cream on Bainbridge Island. I mean, you know, it’s got everything!
EM: Yeah. Well every time I have a really hard time I go on there coz’ there’s nothing negative!
EM: It’s deleted real fast. Sorry.
Q: ??? instead of any negative.
EM: No, I know, it’s great. There’ll be like “post deleted” and I’m like “ohhh nooo”
Q: Whatever you said.
