And she's returned to Lost because of the fans, she thinks.
Elizabeth Mitchell's one of those names tossed into the pot that says "former Lost stars that will appear in the final season", and while the other names are still a slight secret, the one we know as Juliet has confirmed that she's doing at least two more episodes--and thanks the fans for it.
"It was looking [like nothing will happen to my character] and then I don't know what happens now," she told Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello. "I do really think [the producers] listened to the fans, so thank you!"
Oh, and something else: "I think that there will be a little more because of that." So maybe more than the long-hinted everything-will-be-reverted storyline for the final season, I guess?
But she was there to talk about her other ABC series, V, the refresh of the 1980s sci-fi series. And, since it's a remake, someone's bound to scoff--and she isn't worried. "I think about Battlestar Galactica, [and] I kinda felt that you can make a good remake," she said. "I didn't feel like [V] was sacrilege but at the same time, you love what you love. You loved the old one, and it's possible [that] we'll see how people feel about this one."
"You sit down with the script, and it was so good," her co-star Scott Wolf said. "For some people, screwing [this] up would be sacrilege."
"We're paying homage to it," fellow co-star Morena Baccarin said.
And they are thrilled to have Mitchell on board--although it meant questions about her future on Lost. "Part of the world of working on TV is, you sort of know the tricks, so you know what's going to happen," Baccarin said. "But we're really thrilled [to have her.]"
So I guess, good things, then? Surely. Or, it should.
