Jay Ryan had a great deal of input on the Beast's look and fighting style. It turns out that a lot of the Beast's characteristics were developed by Vincent himself. Thanks to spending upwards of four hours at a time in the makeup chair to apply the Beast's makeup and prosthetics (plus another hour and a half to take it all off!), Ryan had strong feelings about the way Vincent and the Beast should appear onscreen.

Jay Ryan auditioned for the show while wearing a giant, ridiculous wig. When Beauty and the Beast was first casting, Ryan was busy filming the miniseries Top of the Lake, for which he had shaved his head completely. So when he got a last-minute call to do a chemistry read with Kreuk, the studio decided he would better fit the part if he had some hair. Unfortunately for him, the only hair they had on hand was a big, gray, out of the box thing that looked like a big mane on his head. Luckily, even a bad wig couldn't disguise his good looks, and he got the part and a new 'do.

Nicole Gale Anderson was destined for her role. Fans of the show have come to know and love Anderson as Heather, Catherine's bubbly, fun-loving younger sister. But even before the casting department realized that she was the perfect choice, it was Anderson's parents who recognized just how much she looks like Kreuk - and they used to tell her that she should one day find a project where they could play sisters.

Each Beast has traits and powers that only they can recognize. It's not just Vincent and Gabe's personalities that are complete opposites; their Beasts are unique creatures as well. According to Writer's Assistant Amy Bettis, each Beast has unique traits and abilities, like all animals in the wild.
