Now all three remaining Mikaelsons — Klaus, Elijah & Rebekah — will appear on the back-door pilot, airing April 25.

I’ve got some good news for Claire Holt — and some very bad news for fans of Rebekah’s re-budding relationship with Stefan (Paul Wesley) on The Vampire Diaries: The Australian actress has officially joined the cast of The CW’s purposed Tvd spin-off, The Originals!

Rebekah joining The Originals makes a lot of sense — she is, after all, an Original — but it also means her tenure on The Vampire Diaries has a definite expiration date.

Interestingly enough, Deadline notes that Claire was originally supposed to co-star in the spin-off, but “talks hit a snag,” so Phoebe Tonkin joined instead. Does this mean there’s a chance Phoebe’s character, Hayley, won’t be sticking around, after all?

Who Else Is Going To Be On ‘The Originals’?

So many people!

Along with Joseph Morgan and Daniel Gillies, »
