Dan Stevens Couldn’t Wait to Visit the Beast’s Library

Didn’t think you could love Dan Stevens more? Here’s proof that he was the perfect fit for the role of the Beast.

 

Stevens recently revealed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that his favorite part of the film to recreate was the library scene, one of the most magical moments in both the 1991 animated Beauty and the Beast and this year’s live-action version. We ourselves have often dreamt of what it would be like to have access to so many books that you need ladders to reach the highest shelves, with nooks and crannies to spend your whole day reading in. And the live-action rendition of the library did not disappoint.

While we know that the Beast is an avid reader, what most people don’t know is that Dan Stevens has long been a part of the literary world. Not only did he spend time writing as a columnist for The Telegraph, but he also served as a judge on the panel for the 2012 Man Booker prize for Fiction.

 

Stevens was already perfectly lovable, but his appreciation for literature makes him even more swoon-worthy!
