Emilie de Ravin makes an AMAZING looking Belle doesn't she?
There were some hardcore Beauty and the Beast fans ranting on the message boards, worried because Emilie's blonde. But no worries, guys! Hollywood has hair dye!
Once Upon A Time's showrunner, Adam Horowitz, is very confident in the Lost star playing Belle:
Emilie projects a very natural strength and warmth, which are characteristics we wanted to explore with Belle. We have a fun spin on the story.
Oooh! We can't wait to see how everything will unfold. We even hear Aladdin will be making an appearance this season too! SO magical!
