Revolution: Elizabeth Mitchell of Lost Joins as a Series Regular



According to TVLine’s Matt Webb Mitovich, Elizabeth Mitchell has joined the cast of NBC’s upcoming drama, Revolution, as a series regular. Revolution premieres Monday, Sept. 17, at 10 pm/9c. Here’s an excerpt from the article, which gives some details on Mitchell’s role:


Mitchell will play Rachel Matheson, the mother of Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) and Danny Matheson (Graham Rogers), and appear in a series in flashbacks. (The role was filled by Rescue Me‘s Andrea Roth in the original pilot.)


Abrams and writer Eric Kripke (Supernatural) are executive-producing Revolution, in which all of the power in the world mysteriously shuts off. Picking up 15 years after the catastrophe, the series follows a band of survivors trying to evade a ruthless militia unit that wants to get the current flowing again, though for the wrong reasons.


The Twilight saga’s Billy Burke plays Miles, the survivors’ unlikely leader and Rachel’s brother-in-law, and Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito is Captain Neville, a sadistic militia commander. On Friday, Daniella Alonso (Friday Night Lights) was added to the cast as Nora, a rebel fighter.

My thoughts: I have to say that the more I find out about Revolution, the more excited I am to see it, and the fact that Elizabeth Mitchell is joining the cast as a series regular has me feeling beyond excited. Elizabeth Mitchell has always been one of my favorite actresses in the cast of Lost, and she is a very talented actress in general. I can’t wait to see her on Revolution. I’m sure that she’ll do a great job on the show.
