Well, things just got that much more bitey (Totally a real word) with the addition of a new vampire to the cast. New to the brand-new show, old to the Vampire Diaries universe, is making the jump and bringing her vampire character, Rebekah, from TVD to The Originals, following in the footsteps of equally sharp-toothed characters Klaus () and Elijah (). Rebekah is a free-spirited, but conniving vamp who is always conjuring up various shenanigans. See? Bitey.
With Holt joining the cast, that makes four original cast members from The Vampire Diaries making the transition to the spin-off series, which should prove a good thing for the newest project as it will already have a built-in audience. Plus, with the pilot being integrated into an episode of The Vampire Diaries, the network will be able to gauge audience reaction before deciding whether or not to greenlight more episodes.
Fans can catch The Originals pilot episode during the April 25 episode of The Vampire Diaries, airing at 8 p.m. EST/7 p.m. CST on The CW.
