    GuGu is incredibly beautiful, and she has an amazing smile. She reminds me of Thandie Newton a little bit. I loved Belle. She’s a very good actress. Classically trained at RADA, too. She looks like she’s about 20 not 31.

    Good casting. They do look like they could be mother and daughter.

    I was thinking along the lines of Saphire Expressions, a lovely ‘cosy’ style from Gugu and Minnie.
