June 11 is a big day for birthdays. Not only is Joshua Jackson one year older, The Originals Claire Holt (Rebekah) is 25 today. To wish her a happy birthday, we’ve compiled five reasons we love the Australian actress.

1. She’s super talented
Whether she's being a badass or showing Rebekah's vulnerable side, Claire has impressive acting chops. 

2. Her awesome BFF
Now that both Claire and Phoebe Tonkin (Hayley) are on The Originals, we're hoping these besties will get some screen time together!

3. Claire loves her castmates.
Though she only came to the show in Season 3, Claire has settled in well with her fellow actors on TVD. She even calls Joseph Morgan (Klaus) “sugar plum.” Aw!

4. She can dance!
Want proof? Kat Graham (Bonnie Bennett) says Claire has the best dance moves of all the other members of the TVD cast. That’s high praise!

5. Her sense of humor.
Claire is hilarious. Just look below for her Halloween costume from this year!
