Deadline is reporting that actress Daniella Pineda has been cast as a regular on the potential Vampire Diaries spinoff The Originals. You may have seen Daniella in Homeland or The Fitzgerald Family Christmas. Daniella will reportedly play a witch named Sophie:
Pineda will play Sophie, a witch whose magic has been silenced but not snuffed. A leader and a sexy, sharp-tongued social force, she is quietly sowing the seeds of a revolution amongst her peers.
A backdoor pilot for The Originals will air as a Vampire Diaries episode on April 25th.
UPDATE: Via Give Me My Remote, the CW has confirmed Pineda’s casting, so it’s official!
