It's a tornado of Once Upon a Time magic!
Not only has one of our all-time Lost favorites been cast as Princess Belle (holler!), but the show's (big) ratings are holding strong, and rumors are swirling that the show's integral couple, Ginnifer Goodwin (Snow White) and Josh Dallas (Prince Charming), might have found their own happy ending...
So who has been cast as Belle? And Ginnifer and Josh really a couple?
Sorry, but...No! (Cue the Evil Queen's cackle. And trust me, we feel you fans' pain.)
Though sources close to the show have been buzzing in our ears that Ginnifer (Snow White) and Josh (Prince Charming) could be dating, and they will in fact be attending (and presenting at) the Country Music Awards together tomorrow night (also airing on ABC), a rep for Ginnifer tells us: "Josh and Ginny are not dating. They are friends and enjoy working together. This story has come up before, and I would really appreciate it if you could make sure you put the correct story out there that they in fact are not dating!
How can we not help out our favorite amnesiac princess? C'mon!
So apparently, what's happening here is that Josh and Ginnifer's chemistry is so engrossing that even some of their co-workers can't help but wish them together in real life. Not to mention, Prince Charming and Snow White's heart-ripping storyline is one of the reasons Once Upon a Time is perhaps our favorite new fall drama. If you didn't see Sunday's third episode, stop what you are doing and watch it online.
And oh yeah, the casting! Details are few, but we can confirm that Lost's Emilie De Ravin (Claire) will be coming on to play Belle, the princess from Beauty and the Beast, as first reported by TV Guide.com, and she will have a connection to Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle). Sources also tell me that the origin of Rumplestiltskin will soon be revealed in an upcoming episode that is fantastic.
Are you loving Once Upon a Time as much as we are?
