VAMPIRE DIARIES' Claire Holt to Join Upcoming Spin-Off

VAMPIRE DIARIES' Claire Holt to Join Upcoming Spin-OffAnother member of 'The Original Family' is set to star in the upcoming VAMPIRE DIARIES spin-off.

Claire Holt has officially signed on to reprise her role as Klaus' sister 'Rebekah' for The CW's THE ORIGINALS, it was announced today.

Holt joins previously announced Joseph Morgan, Charles Michael Davis, Daniel Gillies, Danielle Campbell, and Phoebe Tonkin for the pilot and potential series THE ORIGINALS.

The spin-off's format will be set up in the April 25 episode, in which Klaus (Joseph Morgan) returns to the French Quarter of New Orleans, and meets up with his former (now evil) mentee Marcel (Davis.)

Executive Producer Julie Plec, who is also set to write the episode, is also spearheading the potential offshoot of DIARIES.

Should THE ORIGINALS be picked up for a full series, it would premiere next fall airing before or after DIARIES.

The Vampire Diaries airs Thursdays at 8/7c on The CW.
