Leaving behind a life of crime in Beverly Hills for fighting for survival in the mean streets of New Orleans — that’s quite a change, right? Colin Woodell, who most recently played Ethan Sinclair on Lifetime’s Devious Maids, is now heading over to The CW for a recurring role on The Originals. Who’s he playing? Hint: he’s a howler!


According to TVLine, Colin has been cast as a “badass” werewolf named Aiden. The recurring role — which sounds pretty juicy — will begin in Episode 4. Let’s learn a little more about Aiden, shall we?

The site describes Aiden as a lieutenant in the leading werewolf pack in NOLA. Apparently he’s not afraid to make bold moves, even opting to to team up with the witches of the French Quarter if it means he can keep his family safe by taking down some vamps. TVLine teases some “dangerous alliances” ahead for Aiden, which only makes us more excited about this new character!

What kind of drama do you think Aiden will add to the crazy supernatural warfare of New Orleans? Hit the comments and sound off!

The Originals returns for Season 2 on Monday, October 6, at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
