Lost Star Set To Guest On Once Upon A Time

Emilie de Ravin (Claire) will play Belle… but who will be her Beast?

Emilie de Ravin, who played Australian Claire in Lost , is set to guest star as Belle from Beauty And The Beast in an upcoming episode of Once Upon A Time , reports TV Guide .

It’s the latest Lost connection in a show that boasts lots of Lost connections. Not only are the creators and showrunners former Lost producrs and writers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, but there are many in-jokes, including a clock stuck at 8:15 and a Geronimo Jackson car bumper sticker. So while we’re wondering who might the Beast in the show (wouldn’t it be great if it was Ron Perlman?) there’s every chance she may just fall for a smoke monster.

Apparently, Gaston will also appear in the episode (the twelfth to air, early next year), and Belle has a connection with Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle).
