A city filled with magic and mayhem, The Originals’ New Orleans is about to meet a man of the cloth. According to SpoilerTV, a priest named Kieran will be cast in a recurring role.
There isn’t much more info on him, other than that he has a “dark past,” but we can’t help but wonder what he’ll make of a town full of witches and vampires. After all, the last religious figure we saw on The Vampire Diaries — Pastor Young — wasn’t too fond of the bloodsuckers.
In other casting news, it looks like Klaus’s (Joseph Morgan) mother, Esther, will be returning — sort of. Since Alice Evans, the actress who played the Original Witch on TVD, is pregnant, The Originals needs to do a substitution. However, it seems like we’ll only get a glimpse of Esther. According to Tammy Smith Casting, the show is looking for a “photo double” who can pass for the witchy mama. Specifically, they need someone who resembles Esther when she was still alive 1,000 years ago. Since cameras didn’t exist back then, who knows how this will work out. Check out the description below.
