Claire Holt recently chatted with Zap2it about The Originals spinoff and more. On Rebekah and Katherine:
“It’s kind of funny,” Claire tells us. “They’re so similar in a way, but so different in a way. I think Rebekah likes having the power. She likes controlling situations. I think she’s liked to play that sort of vixen role in Mystic Falls, and Katherine has been the ultimate vixen, so I don’t think they’re going to be the best of friends, that’s for sure.”

It’s almost Thursday! Here’s another peek from Down the Rabbit Hole (EP414).
Time for a peek into Thursday’s new episode, Down the Rabbit Hole (EP414)!
Claire Holt spoke with Entertainment Tonight about what has happened to her character Rebekah this season and what’s to come in the next few weeks, including Rebekah’s relationships with Stefan, Matt, and more. On how she feels about her character this season:
“I feel really lucky as an actor because I get to go a lot of places with Rebekah. I get to explore her vulnerable side, I get to explore the mean girl/catty side of her and there’s that inner conflict about whether she wants to be human or a vampire. I just love it all and am so grateful to the writers for giving me so much.”
And her internal struggle:
“That provides a huge amount of inner turmoil for her because she loves parts of being a vampire — the power, being able to control situations — but she also wants to be a real girl and to have those experiences of going to a dance and being loved by a boy.”
Want a taste of next week’s episode, Catch Me If You Can (EP411)? Here’s a clip from the CW, in which Rebekah actually uses the term “Team Klaus” while hatching her plans with her new ally.
Ology has a new interview with Paul Wesley; the actor shares his thoughts on Elena’s siring and looks ahead at what’s coming up for Stefan and Damon’s ever-rocky relationship.
He also admits that he’s been Team Stefan pretty much from the beginning, even the he initially read to play a very different role.
You originally auditioned for the role of Damon. Do you ever wonder what it would have been like if you got that role?
[Paul Wesley] Yes. [Laughs] I never really thought about it after I got Stefan, but I definitely didn’t think—I thought Stefan was going to be really young and I think they did too. I just didn’t think I was age appropriate for Stefan, but I secretly preferred the role of Stefan. I just didn’t think it was going to happen. So when I read for Damon they didn’t think that was a match, but then I got a call like a month later and they were like, ‘Do you want to read for Stefan?’ I was actually relieved. I was so thrilled about it because I preferred it. So I hadn’t really looked back since.
