With The Originals premiering on The CW on October 3, we’re interested to see where the spin-off will take the witch storyline, given the fact that Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) and his gang of vampires rules New Orleans. But Marcel better watch out for one person: Sophie (Daniella Pineda).
In an interview with The CW, Daniella dished about Sophie’s “witch business” and assured fans that they can look forward to seeing the sassiest witch in supernatural history.
“Sophie is native to New Orleans and she is a rebellious witch who’s basically the biggest badass on the show, in my personal opinion,” Daniella teased. “Marcel has been terrorizing the city of New Orleans, and all of the witches, and killed my sister, so my job from here on out is to make sure that he goes down. Klaus is my in. I’m not an original so I don’t have the power to overtake or overthrow Marcel’s reign, so I need someone like Klaus who matches him in power.”
So Sophie is teaming up with Klaus to knock Marcel off his throne, but even she doesn’t know exactly who can be trusted.
“I don’t know who can trust who,” she goes on to tease. “I think that her pain and what’s driving her to move forward is something that’s very real and very honest, but Klaus has kind of a mean streak, so I don’t really know where that could lead or who could trust who, which is what makes the show so interesting.”
We have a feeling that we’re going to hate to love Sophie’s signature sass. Hopefully the vamps don’t go on a witch hunt too early because this character really does have some potential!
