The men of The Originals are really a lucky bunch, because they get to work alongside some of the hottest women in Hollywood!

In Nylon magazine’s annual September TV issue, the ladies of the cast prove just how hot they are, while dishing on their highly anticipated spin-off.

The Originals is darker and more adult,” says Leah Pipes, who portrays lone human Cami. “The Vampire Diaries was a coming-of-age story; [but] on our show, the characters already have their morals and values established and they’re fighting for their beliefs.”

Newcomer Daniella Pineda compares being part of a hit show’s spin-off to being the child of a famous star. “Everyone looks at you like, ‘Are you going to be as cool as your dad?’ That’s the best way I can describe it.”

While there’s certainly a lot to live up to, we have no doubt that The Originals will be everything we hope for and more!
