The Vampire Diaries Spin-Off, The Originals, Casts Daniella Pineda as the Witch Sophie
We have a witch! Daniella Pineda has joined the cast of the upcoming The Vampire Diaries’ Originals spin-off, playing one of Klaus’s (Joseph Morgan) much-mentioned witch friends. Daniella will play Sophie, according to Deadline, a witch who has lost her magic but has plans to get it back. Also, she “is quietly sowing the seeds of a revolution amongst her peers.” Juicy!
This ambitious enchantress joins Klaus, Original brother Elijah (Daniel Gillies), and badass werewolf Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) on the scene in modern day New Orleans. We’re holding out hope that Original sibs Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic) and Rebekah (Claire Holt). Pretty please? If Daniella looks familiar, you may have seen her in The Fitzgerald Family Christmas or on an episode of the Showtime hit Homeland. No word yet on who will play young witch Davina; Klaus’s “diabolical former protégé”, Marcel; or female psychology student Cami, but we can’t wait to meet them all on April 25.
