‘Once Upon a Time’ recruits ‘Lost’ alum for iconic role of Belle!

This is very exciting news! Emilie de Ravin, best known for her role as Claire in Lost, will reunite with writers Ed Kitsis and Adam Horowitz on Once Upon a Time, where she will be playing the princess Belle from Beauty and the Beast!

TV Guide broke this news today, and we could not be more excited.

While probably most recognisable as Lost‘s Claire, Emilie is also famous for roles in Roswell, Remember Me and Brick.

We reported earlier that Belle’s story will be connected to Rumpelstiltskin’s, and that Gaston will appear.

What do you think of this casting choice? Perfection with a bow on, or did it miss the mark?
