The Originals Spoilers: Callie Brook McClincy Cast as Young Rebekah (PHOTO)
Meet Little Rebekah Mikaelson! The Originalshas finished their casting of the third Mikaelson sibling as a child, and it’s perfect. Her name is Callie Brook McClincy and she seriously looks just as we imagine Claire Holt (Rebekah) did as a little kid. Check out the adorable young address, and let us know what you think!
We will have to wait for Season 1, Episode 16 (“Farewell to Storyville”) to see little Callie in action, but judging solely from the twinkle in her big blue eyes, we think she’ll totally pull off a younger Rebekah. According to her official Facebook page: “Callie is a professional pretender! She loves to sing and dance, and looks forward to every opportunity to step into someone else’s shoes and story.” For such a tiny person, she has already racked up quite the resume. Callie has starred as Sharon Blackwell in 11 Seconds, Hanna James in Anna Nicole, and young Karen Wheaton in It’s Supernatural.
Callie will be joining two other child actors to make up the kid-version of the Mikaelson siblings. Perry Cox has been cast as Young Elijah. You may have seen Perry before as young Miles on Revolution, or in brief turns in Drop Dead Diva or The Odd Life of Timothy Green. The awesomely-named Aiden Flowers has been cast as Young Klaus, and he already seems to have Klaus’ trademark glare down pat. We’ve very excited to meet the new additions to The Originals family!
We assume the children’s appearance has something to do with a flashback prompted by Elijah’s reveal of “a long-held secret from the family’s past.” Nothing like a trip down memory lane to distract your brother from killing your sister, amirite?
Do you think Callie looks like a young Rebekah? What do you think will happen in the flashback? Sound off in the comments below!
