I’m trying to get an interview with Elizabeth Mitchell.
Yep, that Elizabeth Mitchell. From “Lost.” And “V.” And now NBC’s “Revolution.”
I actually first knew her from “Gia,” that movie with Angelina Jolie that should make little girls think twice about modeling careers.
But here’s a photo in case you’ve been in hiding and don’t remember who she is
I’m not having much luck tracing her down, though. Her fan club was nice enough to pass me along to her publicist but that person hasn’t exactly been beating down my door.
I’m hoping this blog entry will do the trick. Surely Elizabeth Mitchell has a press team out there constantly Googling searching for her name in news and blogs. (If she doesn’t, she should have.)
As some of you probably know, or have guessed by now, Elizabeth Mitchell is a Stephens alumna. And I would love to profile her career for our women’s alumnae magazine.
But not just because she’s uber famous—we have other famous alumna (actually Paula Zahn was featured in a previous magazine). It wasn’t until I read Mike Granberry’s profile of her in the Dallas Morning News that I got my hopes up.
Granberry describes Elizabeth Mitchell (see what I’m doing here—the more her name appears the better chance Google will find this) as “one of the nicest people I’ve ever met.”
Surely she’d grant a lowly story specialist/strategist at her alma mater an interview, then?
(I actually emailed Granberry asking him for her publicist’s contact. He never got back with me. If you’re reading this, Mike, I was kinda disappointed. I know I would have laughed at a PR person asking me for contact info when I was a reporter, but I still would have replied).
Anyway, hopefully Elizabeth Mitchell or her people will stumble on this and perhaps grant me the interview? Anyone? Anyone? Elizabeth Mitchell?
