Emma Watson took to Twitter to welcome her Beauty and the Beast co-stars.Watson, who is set to play Belle, was gushing in her happiness that former Downton Abbey star Dan Stevens has been cast as the Beast. She also gave Luke Evans, set to play the villainous Gaston, a very French welcome.
Though Evans and Stevens are yet to be confirmed in the roles, both sent out tweets that all but confirmed their participation. Evans tweeted "why thank you Belle!!" back to Watson along with a side by side picture of himself and the animated Gaston. Stevens tweeted a quirky picture with the legend "Beast Mode".
Could not be more happy that this man will be Beast!!! Welcome aboard @thatdanstevens #beautyandthebeast
Bonjour Gaston! ❤️ Welcome! #BeautyAndTheBeast
