With all the excitement surrounding the new spin-off series The Originals, fans can get excited that witches will definitely be a part of the New Orleans-based series.

Daniella Pineda will play Sophie Deveraux, a strategic witch making her way in a world full of vampires, werewolves, and hybrids. But don't worry about Sophie, because Daniella says she's a force to be reckoned with.

"Sophie is a very genuine — but no BS — kind of gal," she said. "She's needed very much by Joseph Morgan (Klaus) to take down Marcel (Charles Michael Davis). She might not be as powerful as a vampire, but she's certainly a strategist and she's necessary for this story."

The girl behind the witch is a pretty bad ass girl herself, sporting tattoos that she hopes make an appearance on the show. When asked if audiences will get to see her ink on the small screen, she says, "We'll see, I'm trying to fight for it, but we'll see. It's relevant — I could see a witch wearing a tattoo."

In addition to being lucky enough to join the new series, Daniella also gets to work with some of the sexiest guys and gals in the TV world. "They're great, they're awesome," she said about her co-stars. "What's great about this cast is everyone's really funny — thank God. As soon as the cameras go off, we're goofing and joking around, which is always really nice."
