Here’s the story: We’ve loved Phoebe Tonkin ever since she played with crystals as Faye on The Secret Circle. That’s why — after TSC was cancelled — we were excited to see her cast on another CW show. As Hayley on The Vampire Diaries, she plays a wicked werewolf and we saw a whole lot more of her in Season 4, Episode 16, “Bring It On.”
After Hayley dissed Klaus’s (Joseph Morgan) paintings and he plied her wine, the two former enemies decided to mix business with pleasure. During the sexy scene, Twitter was lighting up. Many fans were simply jealous the Australian actress had Joseph Morgan — and his tattoos! — in such close proximity, but others were upset that the hybrid-werewolf hookup even happened.
Now, the TVD fandom is a passionate bunch, particularly about their ‘ships. Caroline (Candice Accola) and Klaus have a very vocal following — they were likely cheering on Elena (Nina Dobrev) last night when she told her blond friend, “You won’t have to feel guilty about all the dirty thoughts you have about Klaus.” Some of these viewers expressed their dissatisfaction to the actress on Twitter.
Phoebe gamely responded in a tweet:
OK, we were also a little jealous that Phoebes looks so fantastic in that scene. Because both Ms. Tonkin and Joseph Morgan have been cast in The Vampire Diaries spin-off, The Originals, there’s always a chance of another steamy scene.
Who knows? Some Klaroline fans may even be converted to Team Kayley?
