TV Guide recently caught up with Claire Holt and Phoebe Tonkin at The CW Upfronts and they both dropped some major dish about both of showrunner Julie Plec's series. It looks like Rebekah might have to get back in Klaus' good graces, Hayley may have to lean on Elijah for baby support, and there could be a lot of movement between the series for the characters.
When asked about the positive response to the blossoming relationship between Rebekah and Matt, Claire said, "Matt brings out the soft side Rebecca. Matt's been hard on his luck lately, and she has the ability to help him. They have a nice little connection there. He helps her realize that maybe it's not all about being the big, tough, mean girl. They like that he's been able to soften her, I think."
Additionally, Claire thinks the characters will be able to go pretty freely between TVD and The Originals, saying the door has been left open. "I think there's more stories to tell on TVD and, of course, sooo many stories on The Originals.
And what's down the pipeline for Rebekah and Klaus? "She's going to have to mend her relationship with Klaus," Claire said. "I'm hoping Rebekah and Klaus reconnect again because we had some fun times back in the '20s."
As for Phoebe's Hayley, Claire says she hopes there will be more screentime for the off-screen besties in the future.
Phoebe says she is excited about the Klaus baby drama, though she doesn't know much about the timeline of it all. She says she doesn't know how quick the birth will be or if she'll have to sport a prosthetic baby bump. Either way, she'll still look gorgeous!
And for those of you still trying to figure Hayley out, Phoebe says you'll really get to see more about her past on The Originals.
Did that satisfy your craving or leave you wanting more? Fall cannot get here soon enough!
