"The Vampire Diaries" spin-off's backdoor pilot, "The Originals," has just cast its first character that isn't already a part of Mystic Falls lore. Deadline confirms that Daniella Pineda will play Sophie, a witch who will be a series regular character if "The Originals" gets picked up to series.
The casting breakdown for Sophie is as follows: "Strong and driven, Sophie is a warrior. A witch whose magic has been silenced but not snuffed, Sophie is quietly sowing the seeds of a revolution amongst her peers. She's a leader, a sexy social force. An enormous bleeding heart that she often disguises with a sharp tongue and a glare."
When we meet Sophie, she's mired in grief after a devastating loss, but her sadness is overpowered by her anger. Under the rule of a maniacal vampire, New Orleans witches aren't allowed to practice true magic... but Sophie isn't interested in being helpless anymore. »
