True Blood actor Kelly Overton will guest star on an episode of Beauty and the Beast, reports. We last saw Overton playing a strong-willed werewolf who cuddled up to Alcide (Joe Manganiello) in the southern town of Bon Temps. While she won’t be a beastly creature in BatB, she’ll bring the romance to the new series. 


Overton will play Claire, an intelligent and extremely athletic doctoral student who hits it off with medical examiner Evan (Max Brown) after they meet online.

Overton’s role on Beauty and the Beast will occur in the fourth episode with the potential for her character to become recurring. Catch the premiere of Beauty and the Beast on Thursday, Oct. 11 at 9pm.
