Yep, Claire Holt Will Be On ‘The Originals’

The news you’ve been blood-lusting after is finally here: Claire Holt will star as Rebekah in the backdoor pilot for “The Vampire Diaries” spin-off “The Originals“!

The scoop comes courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter, confirming speculation that the Australian actress would join co-stars Joseph Morgan, Daniel Gillies and Phoebe Tonkin in the April 25 episode. Additional cast members include Daniella Pineda and Danielle Campbell as witches Sophie and Davina, Leah Pipes as human Camille and Charles Michael Davis as Klaus’ former protege Marcel.

The potential series will follow Klaus as he returns to New Orleans and reunites with the diabolical Marcel. And with the addition of Claire’s feisty Rebekah, this will be one pilot we’ll gladly sink our teeth into.
