Elizabeth Mitchell stars as Rachel Matheson, the mother of Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) and Danny (Graham Rogers) in NBC's "Revolution," which reteams her with J.J. Abrams.

As an Emmy-nominee for her starring role on ABC's phenomenon "LOST," Mitchell's ascent is anything but off-course.  Her role as Juliet proved to be considerable intrigue to viewers during the course of the last few seasons, as well as an opportunity for fans to place where they have seen her before.  She most recently starred on ABC's "V" drama; based upon the popular '80s alien invasion mini-series, which was the highest rated debut of a series since "LOST" in 2004.

Whether as Mrs. Clause to Tim Allen in the last two installments of Disney's successful "The Santa Clause" trilogy or time-traveling alongside the likes of Dennis Quaid in New Line's "Frequency," Mitchell has lent her ability to an impressive and diverse range of roles.  Most notably as girlfriend of Angelina Jolie in her portrayal of supermodel "Gia" in the Golden Globe-winning HBO telefilm.  She also starred opposite Dane Cook in the indie drama "Answers to Nothing."

Additional credits include Neil LaBute's "Nurse Betty" opposite Renee Zellweger, a 14-episode arc as Dr. Kim Legaspi on John Wells' "ER," Wayne Kramer's  "Running Scared" with Paul Walker, NBC's critically acclaimed "Lyon's Den" with Rob Lowe, and in the BBC series "Man and Boy" opposite Ioan Gruffudd.  Further solidifying her course on the fast-track was her role opposite Barry Pepper as Teresa Earnhardt in the ESPN original telefilm "3: The Dale Earnhardt Story."

Born in Los Angeles and raised in Dallas, Mitchell transitioned from a performing arts high school to a BFA degree in Acting.  She further honed her craft at the renown Dallas Theatre Company.  Her stage credits include productions of "As You Like It," "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum," and "Chicago."  She currently splits her time between Los Angeles, Vancouver, and Seattle; depending upon production.
