While Claire Holt’s on-screen character Rebekah Mikaelson was totally hooking up with Mystic Falls’s resident busboy Matt Donovan (Zach Roerig) this summer, Claire admits to being crushing on someone a little more famous in her real life.
In an interview with AwesomenessTV, Claire (who now stars on The Originals) admitted that she was excited to see Justin Timberlake at the 2013 iHeartRadio Festival. “Justin, of course,” Claire said when asked who she was eager to hear perform. “I have never met Justin.”
And if you think her love is only for J.T., you would be mistaken. “I’m a big fangirler of musicians, absolutely,” Claire admitted.
Claire was with her Originals co-star Charles Michael Davis (Marcel), and he admitted that while Claire is super excited to see some A-list musicians, he is a little more low-key. “I play it real cool,” Charles says, shaking off any potential fan girl moments we might see from him. Apparently he keeps all his fan girl emotions inside and gives us a chill exterior. We see you, Charles.
But all that goes out the window when Robbie Amell (star of The Tomorrow People) shows up. Charles loses it when he sees him and we can’t even deal with how adorable the moment is — seriously, you have to watch to see.
The interviewer then asks Robbie who he would love to meet and when we heard his answer, we just knew that he and Claire would become besties. “I’ve got a man crush on Justin Timberlake,” Robbie says. We love the camaraderie these guys have. Julie Plec power!
