‘Once Upon a Time’ casts Frances O’Connor as Belle’s mom
Once Upon a Time has tapped Frances O’Connor to play Belle’s mother in the upcoming fourth season, EW has learned exclusively. The 47-year-old actress will portray Colette, whom we’ll meet briefly in the sixth episode, but find out she had an immense impact on Belle’s life. There’s a possibility to see her again later in the season.
As EW first reported, Belle’s mom will be introduced through flashbacks. “For the first time, we’ll delve into Belle’s past pre-the encounter with Rumple,” executive producer Adam Horowitz says.
The Once casting marks a return to ABC for O’Connor, who previously starred on the short-lived Cashmere Mafia. Her other credits include Mansfield Park, Bedazzled and Mr. Selfridge.
Season 4 OUAT premiere date (and some Comic Con info)!
The air date for episode 1 of season 4 of Once Upon a Time was announced by ABC this week.
The show will kick back off on Sunday, September 28 at 8 p.m. EDT.

Meanwhile, the season will be explored during a panel discussion at the 2014 Comic-Con in San Diego on Saturday, July 26.

It will be held at Ballroom 20 at the San Diego Convention Center.
Seating in all event rooms at Comic-Con is on a first-come, first- served basis. Because of the sheer number of attendees, simply having a badge does not guarantee a seat in programs and events, nor an autograph from a specific celebrity.
Emilie de Ravin and Joshua Janowicz to Divorce
Five years after they first planned to divorce, only to later reconcile, Emilie de Ravin and Joshua Janowicz are moving to end their marriage.
Janowicz filed divorce papers Tuesday in Los Angeles, citing irreconcilable differences with the Once Upon a Time and Lost star.
The papers say the couple, both 32, separated last November. They also list their date of marriage as June 19, 2003, although their public wedding ceremony took place three years after that, on June 26, 2006.
The pair had previously planned to divorce in 2009, but the papers were never finalized. This was the first marriage for both. They have no children.
The pair met through friends, de Ravin told PEOPLE, “which is the best way to meet someone, isn’t it?” she said.
Emilie de Ravin confirmed for ‘Submarine Kid’?
Wittrock stars as a U.S. Marine who returns home from a horrific wartime experience and begins to gravitate towards a mysterious woman (Emilie de Ravin, “Lost”) on her own determined journey. Together, they enter into a magical and destructive new existence to expose their ultimate truths.
The Submarine Kid tells the dramatic coming of age story of Spencer King, an emotionally and physically damaged Navy SEAL returning home from his third tour of duty in Afghanistan. When Spencer arrives home, he can no longer connect with the life he once led. Attempting to escape from the demons haunting him from a grizzly incident overseas and the family, friends, and girlfriend who expect the normal Spencer, he goes back to work at the local bookstore. It is there he meets Alice, a fascinating young woman with whom he is able to start unraveling his true self. Spencer and Alice stumble upon an old pulp comic about a local suburban legend from generations past: The Submarine Kid. Spencer learns of the Kid’s spectacular abilities of record-setting breath-holding. It is here that Alice and Spencer begin a deadly game with grave consequences that changes both of their lives forever. Spencer attempts to fight off the visions of his past and the immediate responsibilities of his reality in a magical underwater world he creates with Alice.
