So I Guess We’re In The Book Club

This past weekend, we were fortunate enough to have attended a fundraiser for the Kitsap Regional Library Foundation, which featured none other than Elizabeth Mitchell (a.k.a. Dr. Juliet Burke), who was just amazingly supportive of Cancer Gets LOST!

It was an evening of good food, awesome wine, and even awesomer company, followed by a pretty lengthy dialogue with Ms Mitchell, moderated by my wonderful partner-in-crime Jo Garfein (a.k.a. JOpinionated). We’ll be making another detailed post very soon about that evening (along with sneak peeks at some cool stuff that she signed for our auction), but in the meantime, we’re pleased as punch to be able to share with you some footage from that dialogue on our brand new YouTube channel!

We’d like to thank everyone at KRLF, and especially Mr. Peter Raffa, for this incredible opportunity!



P/S. All 5 videos should play back-to-back (Total running time is 50:51). The first couple of videos are a bit blurry because it didn’t occur to me to FOCUS – d’oh! Also, please pardon the frog choir in the last couple of videos. We didn’t invite them.

Synopses of each video:

Part 1: Elizabeth talks about her love for reading, her favorite roles to play, and her work as Dr. Juliet Burke on LOST.

Part 2: Elizabeth talks about working on V, moving to Washington, her upcoming Lifetime movie with Rob Lowe about the Casey Anthony story, and social media (she’s neither on Facebook nor Twitter).

Part 3: Elizabeth talks about filming the final scene in the church on LOST (which happened to fall on her birthday) and her love for theater.

Part 4: Elizabeth answers questions about the direction that V would have gone in if it hadn’t been canceled, whether or not Juliet was pregnant when she died (and more about LOST), who her favorite authors/genres are, and her son’s penchant for performing.

Part 5: Elizabeth answers questions about how she met her husband (actor/acting coach Chris Soldevilla, who coaches Jared Gilmore from Once Upon A Time), auditioning, people she’s worked with, her dream roles, if she’s been asked to be on Fringe or Game of Thrones, her tastes in music, and Josh Holloway’s real-life nickname for her.

Homecoming: August 25, 2012

With a little help from the friendly familiar face above, we are thrilled to finally announce the details for our official event and charity auction this summer! There are three tiers to what we aim to accomplish with Cancer Gets LOST, all of which will take place to raise money for the National Brain Tumor Society.

1. Wednesday, August 15 – Wednesday, August 29: Online charity auction featuring rare and autographed memorabilia, props, art and more from LOST and other shows (official URL will be posted in early August). 100% of the proceeds will benefit the NBTS.

2. Saturday, August 25, noon-4pm PST: Live streaming Webcast with several of the cast & creative team from LOST and other shows (confirmed guests will be announced later this summer). The recording of this event will be closed to the public but available for everyone to watch online!

3. Saturday, August: 25, 7pm-11pm PST: Cancer Gets LOST Party in Los Angeles (location and time will be announced later this summer). Open to everyone; no-host bar, trivia, giveaways and more! Auction items will be on display. Admission: Cash donation of $5 or more to the NBTS.

We are still in the process of collecting items for the auction, so let us know if you have any original art, authentic official LOST Auction or autographed items to donate!

Save the date and stay tuned, as we continue to secure special guests and auction memorabilia. Thank you in advance for the support and for helping to spread the word – we certainly would not be able to do this without the amazing generosity and enthusiasm of the fans!

We would like to also express our gratitude to Jorge and Beth for taking the time to create the video promo!
