Emma Watson and Dan Stevens have adorable meeting with mini Belle and Beast

By Emmy Griffiths

Emma Watson and Dan Stevens looked absolutely delighted when they came face-to-face with two adorable children dressed as their characters, Belle and the Beast. Little Olivia and Ted interviewed the pair while dressed to the nines as the Disney characters, with Olivia wearing Belle's iconic yellow gown while Ted wore the Beast's blue embroidered jacket.

Chatting to the pair, Emma said: "You look amazing! Thank you so much. You look fantastic." When Dan asked where Olivia got her dress from, she replied: "I don't know, they gave it to me," leading the two actors to burst into laughter. The pair answered their mini-me's questions about the film, with Emma saying: "It was like my childhood dream come true, she was one of my absolute favourites and I watched the film a million times, over and over again as a child." They then simultaneously said they'd like to play each other's characters if they could play any other character in the film. Dan said: "I'd love to play Belle – look at that dress" as little Belle and Beast giggled. When they posed for a photo with the two little ones, Olivia told Emma: "My friends are big fans of you!" then looked thrilled to sit on the star's lap for the snap.

Emma recently opened up about how time-consuming her role as Belle was, leading her to turn down the starring role in La La Land. Chatting on Lorraine, she said: "With a movie like Beauty and The Beast it's like three months prep, it's like three or four months shooting, it's in the UK. I had to be there to do that and as I was saying before it's like you can't half-[do] a project like this, you know, you're in or you're out. And I was like I've kinda got to be all in and so this was really where my heart was and I knew I had to fully commit and make sure that I did this."
