Thanks to some last-minute recasting, scene-stealing beauty Elizabeth Mitchell, a veteran of Lost and one of the best things in the reboot of V, will be a regular on the NBC post-apocalyptic series Revolution.
The high-buzz new series is a collaboration of Lost creator J.J. Abrams and Supernatural creator Eric Kripke, which means this will be a reunion for Mitchell and Abrams. And thanks to both Lost and V, Mitchell has plenty of experience playing characters dealing with a radically changed world.
Mitchell will play Rachel Matheson, the mother of Charlie Matheson (Tracy Spiridakos) and Danny Matheson (Graham Rogers). The character, played in the pilot by Andrea Roth of Rescue Me, will appear in the series in flashbacks.
Revolution already features a small cluster of actors who can make any character fascinating, including Billy Burke, Giancarlo Esposito, and Tim Guinee; adding Mitchell to that mix makes this series even more must-see.
Also joining Revolution is Friday Night Lights survivor Daniella Alonso, who has landed the role of Nora on the show. Kripke describes her as a "rebel fighter, battling against the militia that controls North America. And she's got a lot of rough water under the bridge with Miles, Billy Burke's character. And she likes to blow stuff up."
