Emilie de Ravin is bringing a whole lot of beauty to the already gorgeous Once Upon a Time.
The Lost alumna has been cast on ABC’s fantastical freshman drama, playing the fairy tale world’s illustrious beast lover, Belle, TVGuide.com reports.
Details surrounding the role are being kept hush-hush, but Belle will appear
opposite her burly suitor Gaston, and the two are said to have ties to
Robert Carlyle’s skeezy Rumplestiltskin. De Ravin’s Once debut is slated to air in early 2012.
De Ravin — who played single mom-turned-feral island dweller Claire Littleton on Lost —
has remained fairly quiet on the acting front since completing
production on the ABC drama back in 2010, appearing only in a pair of
indie flicks and the big-screen romantic drama, Remember Me.
