Linda Hamilton has sent her well wishes to Kristin Kreuk, who this fall stars in a reboot of “Beauty and the Beast.”
On Friday, the former “Smallville” actress Tweeted out a photo of a signed poster from the original “Beauty” in the series, Linda, who played Catherine Chandler on CBS from 1987 to 1990.
“Look at what I got on my first day shooting,” Kristin Tweeted, with a link to the signed poster image.
“May you have many marvelous adventures. I wish you the best,” read Linda’s inscription on the poster.
Kristin will play a different kind of Catherine Chandler in the reboot for CBS’ sister network, The CW, this fall.
While Linda’s character was an assistant district attorney, Kristin’s character is a detective, who is one tough gal.
“We really wanted to make sure that it didn’t come across that Catherine would get saved all the time by the Beast, and that that would be the show,” Kristin told AccessHollywood.com earlier this month at Comic-Con. “That’s not the show — it’s really about a partnership between the two of them.”
“Beast/Vincent” will be played by newcomer Jay Ryan.
“Beauty and the Beast” premieres on October 11 at 9/8c on The CW.
