Claire Holt Says Cami Is the Matt Donovan of The Originals

We hope you’re enjoying Cami (Leah Pipes) on the freshman season of The Originals. Not only has this young lady made quite the impression on Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Marcel (Charles Michael Davis), but she’s clearly impressed Claire (Rebekah Mikaelson). How long can we expect this psychology student to stick around New Orleans? Read on to hear Claire’s thoughts on the matter!

In a Google+ Hangout with Entertainment Weekly, Claire was ready to dish about the show. When asked if there would be any moments between Rebekah and Cami in upcoming episodes, Claire was ready with an answer.

“I think Cami’s storyline is more centered around some of the other characters at the moment, and so she and I don’t have that many scenes together,” Claire responded. “But she is one of the coolest girls on the planet. She is such an outstanding actress — she blows my mind. The show is so lucky to have her, and I wish I got to do many, many more scenes with her.”

That’s when Claire decided to make a sweeping statement, saying, “She’s going to be around for a very long time, I think.”

Hold the phone, girl. Are you saying that we can stop worrying about Cami’s well-being? Having the pleasure of being the only human in a town full of supernatural warfare tends to put a target on your back — and characters tend to bite the dust in the Vampire Diaries universe.

“I know; they axe a lot of people all the time,” Claire teased. “I think it’s safe to say she might be the Matt Donovan of The Originals.”

What Claire means is that Cami is the lone human in a vampire-eat-vampire world and she will somehow live survive all kinds of dangerous situations. We have to admit that Matt (Zach Roerig) doesn’t always have the best storylines, but if they can give Cami some great material and a steamy love interest, we’re totally down for her staying for as long as she wants.

Someone get this girl a Gilbert ring, stat!

What do you think about Claire likening Cami to Matt Donovan? Do you hope she sticks around for a long time? Hit the comments and let us know!

The Originals airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
