Belle will be a regular character on Season 2 of Once Upon a Time
Belle and Rumpelstiltskin (in "Skin Deep")
All of Emilie de Ravin’s fans — and fans of the Rumplestiltskin/Belle love story — will be thrilled to hear that de Ravin has been promoted from a guest star to a series regular starting in Season 2.
She was in only three episodes in Season 1. It seems like she was in a lot more, doesn’t it? via EW.
