emilie de ravin belle 2 'Once Upon a Time': Emilie de Ravin promoted to series regularBig news, “Once Upon a Time” fans – Emilie de Ravin, Storybrooke and Fairytale Land’s resident Belle of the ball, is going to be a series regular for Season 2, reports TV Line. We can barely contain our excitement.

Emilie was in three Season 1 episodes as the girl who won over Rumpelstiltskin/Mr. Gold and their reunion at the end of the season was one of the best moments of the finale. We hope the purple smoke that Mr. Gold unleashed upon Storybrooke doesn’t revert everyone into not remembering who they are again.

What do you think, “OUAT” fans? This is pretty fantastic news, we think. Belle and Rumpel was one of the highlights of the first season, so we can’t wait to see where the show takes them in Season 2.
