ABC Finds Its Beauty
Just a week after news surfaced that Scottish actor and singer Darius Campbell accepted the role of Shiro, aka the Beast, in ABC’s reimagining of Beauty and the Beast, TVLine reports he’ll have his Beauty in Irish actress Ruth Bradley (Primeval).
The character is actually known as Grace, a princess with a beastly bodyguard in the form of Shiro. Campbell and Bradley also will be joined by Chris Egan, who plays Grace’s fiance Gorrick.
Jon Steinberg of Jericho and Human Target fame will write the pilot and also serve as an executive producer.
