Emilie de Ravin is currently a series regular on ABC’s hit series ONCE UPON A TIME, putting a new twist on classic fairytales. She stars as the warm and loving “Belle,” with Robert Carlyle as her beast, “Mr. Gold/Rumplestiltskin.”
Emilie broke out with her first starring role on the Australian fantasy drama, BEASTMASTER. Shortly after, she landed the role of the alien “Tess” in the hit series ROSWELL. After 2 years on the show, she then made notable guest appearances in CSI: MIAMI and THE HANDLER. Emilie was on the Emmy-award winning ABC series LOST, playing Claire, a young Australian who gave birth on the mysterious island and has a close relationship with Charlie played by Dominic Monaghan.
Emilie has shown her versatility by branching out into film, making her debut at Sundance 2005 with the award-winning indie film BRICK. She starred in the remake THE HILLS HAVE EYES in 2006, which debuted at No.1 in the UK box office. Emilie also starred in the drama REMEMBER ME, as the romantic lead “Ally” opposite Robert Pattinson. She has since starred in PUBLIC ENEMIES and in THE SUBMARINE KID opposite Finn Wittrock.
