EXCLUSIVE: ABC and ABC Studios like their Beauty. Ruth Bradley (In Her Skin), who played the female lead in the ABC/ABC Studios drama pilot Beauty And The Beast, has signed a talent holding deal with the network and studio behind the project, which would likely lead to another pilot role for the Irish actress next season. Bradley, repped by Anonymous Content and UK’s Hamilton/Hodell, most recently starred in the ITV miniseries Titanic, which also aired on ABC, and in the Sundance film Grabbers, in which she stars opposite Richard Coyle.
