The second season of Beauty and the Beast is in full swing, but fans of the show are still waiting for the romance between NYC police detective Cat Chandler (Kristin Kreuik) and presumed-dead super-soldier Vincent Keller (Jay Ryan) to heat up. As Kristin tells ET Canada, though, they should prepare to keep waiting.

“The fans get upset that the romance is slowing down but that doesn’t mean it’s not good for them,”; she explains. “You can’t always get what you want.”;

Besides, she adds, a happy, content couple doesn’t make for a very dramatic TV show: “Fans really want them together, which is what we want — that’s awesome. But, really, drama comes from the difficulty and love is shown through how much you’re willing to push to earn it.”;

Now that the show is in its second season, one of the tweaks that’s been made is with the prosthetic Beast makeup, with Jay sporting a new “trimmed-back”; look whenever he transforms into his vicious alter ego.

“It just means he doesn’t have to be at work for as long hours,”; says Kristin, “which is really nice for him because sitting in that [makeup] chair as long as he did is just brutal.”;

“It seems odd that I’m the one that’s in the makeup chair the most out of a cast of beautiful women,”; jokes Jay.
