As an Emmy-nominee for her starring role on ABC’s phenomenon LOST, Elizabeth Mitchell’s ascent is anything but off-course. Her role as Juliet proved to be considerable intrigue to viewers during the course of the series, as well as an opportunity for fans to place where they have seen her before.
Elizabeth Mitchell re-teamed with creator JJ Abrams in yet another power-house role of “Rachel” on his drama vehicle, NBC’s “Revolution”, and then transitioned into the role of Snow Queen on ABC’s “Once upon a time“, followed by Netflix’s international drama, “Crossing Lines“ with Donald Sutherland.
She reunited with her Snow Queen character creator on Freeform’s sci-fi mystery series “Dead of Summer”, enjoyed a memorable arc on SyFy’s The expanse, and assumed the lead role in Universal’s blockbuster The purge : election year opposite Frank Grillo. Next on the horizon is her role as lead protagonist on Season 2 of the Netlfix original series, Outer Banks, coupled with her addition to the cast of yet another Netflix series, “First Kill”, with Emma Roberts.
Whether as Mrs. Clause to Tim Allen in the last two installments of Disney’s successful “The Santa Clause” trilogy or time-traveling alongside the likes of Dennis Quaid in New Line’s “Frenquency”, the famous actress has lent her ability to an impressive and diverse range of roles. Most notably as girlfriend of Angelina Jolie in her portrayal of supermodel GIA in the Golden Globe-winning HBO telefilm.
Mitchell also starred opposite Dane Cook in the indie drama “Answers to nothing”, and next reunites with her “Santa Clause” co-star Ann-Margret in Queen bees which also stars Ellen Burstyn and James Caan among others. Additionally, she stars in and produced the SXSW indie feature, “Witch Hunt”.

Further solidifying her course on the fast-track was her role opposite Barry Pepper as Teresa Earnhardt in the ESPN original telefilm 3: “The Dale Earnhardt Story” , and ABC’s V drama; based upon the popular ‘80s alien invasion mini-series, which was the highest rated debut of a series since “Lost”.
