Biography

After making her presence known with an attention-grabbing performance opposite Angelina Jolie in "Gia" (HBO, 1998), actress Elizabeth Mitchell maintained a steady presence in movies and on television until finally becoming a star when joined the cast of the hit series, "Lost" (ABC, 2004-2010). Prior to playing Juliet Burke on "Lost," Mitchell suffered a string of failed shows like "L.A. Firefighters" (Fox, 1996) while make guest appearances on shows like "The Sentinel" (UPN, 1995-99) and "JAG" (NBC, 1996-2005). Next was her standout performance in "Gia," which soon led to the titular role in the made-for-television movie, "The Linda McCartney Story" (CBS, 2000). That performance opened up doors in the feature film world, allowing Mitchell to appear on the big screen in "Nurse Betty" (2000), "Frequency" (2001) and "The Santa Clause 2" (2002). Having become more of a recognizable face, Mitchell returned to television with episodes of "House" (Fox, 2004- ) and "Boston Legal" (ABC, 2004-08) before returning to films with a small role in "Running Scared" (2006). But it was her enigmatic turn as one of The Others on "Lost" that propelled her into the spotlight and originally kept audiences guessing about her loyalties. Eventually, her Juliet became an integral and trusted character on the show during its final seasons, helping Mitchell to finally achieve the recognition she long deserved.
