Get ready for more Belle on Once Upon a Time.

Emilie de Ravin has been promoted to a series regular on the ABC hit. The former Lost actress played the Beauty and the Beast heroine in three episodes during the drama’s breakout debut season.

“It’s a beautiful story, but I think it also shows that there’s not always a happy ending,” de Ravin told EW.com about her arc on the show. “Most of these original fairy tales — of course, being predominately made as animations for children — didn’t want to have a tragedy at the end. So they definitely take a more realistic approach.”
