A broadcast drama series is losing one of its major cast members. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the "Vampire Diaries" spinoff "The Originals" will be without the regular services of Claire Holt.
The Australian actress, who plays Rebekah Mikaelsen, was in her last episode of the CW series March 11, when her character drove off after a confrontation with her brother, Klaus, the story notes. Even though Holt will no longer serve as a main character on “The Originals,” she could return as a guest star, the piece adds.
“There is no indication on when she could return if the opportunity arises, but the intention is that Holt could potentially reprise her role as early as later this season or in the show’s sophomore run,” the story says.
