Comic-Con Interview: Beauty and the Beast Supercouple Kristin Kreuk and Jay Ryan Offer Insight on CW Hit




It's a tale as old as time — a monstrous, tormented beast and the ravishing beauty determined to save him. In 2012, The CW put a fresh spin on the Beauty and the Beast mythology with a new serialized drama starring Smallville alum Kristin Kreuk and New Zealand's Jay Ryan. Daytime Confidential caught up with the equally-beautiful pair this weekend at Comic-Con. 

Kreuk and Ryan delved into the psychological underpinnings of their characters, police detective Catherine Chandler and Vincent Keller, a former doctor transformed into a mutant super soldier with murderous rage by a government experiment. Do the talented actors believe in the kind of predestined, star-crossed love their characters share? Keep reading to find out.

Daytime Confidential: Congrats on the show. After doing so many years of series television, what brought you back?

Kristin Kreuk: That’s a good question. It really was Sherri [Cooper] and Jennifer [Levin]. I met with them, and I loved them so much. I know that being on TV for a long time, it’s about the people that you’re working with. They are wonderful and collaborative, and they wanted to work with me, and I liked that a lot, so that’s why I did it. I was a little scared to get back into a full TV show again.

DC: What makes her a beauty, and what makes him a beast?

KK: I really think that a lot of what we’re exploring is that no one is one or the other, but everybody has beauty and beast within them, that we make certain choices in our lives to behave in one way or in another. Catherine’s journey in part is really to come to understand that there are no bad guys, and there are no good guys, that people make decision, and that humanity is blind, so I think that’s a big part of it.
