‘Belle/Emilie de Ravin’ Promoted Series Regular On ‘Once Upon a Time’.
Hate her accent. Hope the Mad hatter becomes a regular. And how is August? So many questions.
Emilie de Ravin has been upgraded to series regular status for Season 2.
The Lost alum’s future with the fantastical ABC drama seemed solid given the events of the Season 1 finale, in which Belle was sprung from captivity to reunite with onetime flame Rumpelstiltskin and make him aware of Regina/the Evil Queen’s duplicitous act. Still, it’s nice to see it made official with the actress’ inking of a deal.
As Once scribe Jane Espenson recently explained to us, “We cast [Emilie] thinking that she’d be great for this but that it would probably be a one-shot — but if she didn’t get a pilot and she had a good time and she’s available, we knew that of course she’d be welcome back!”
