HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 2017/3/17 – “Good, but sad” says The Originals star Phoebe Tonkin about being the last original female member of the cast “I wish there was some more around. I think the season’s opening up a lot of new doors, new characters are able to come in. And obviously with the 13-episode pick up it just changes the pace of the show. It’s kind of fast this year. Storylines are a little more condensed which just changes the show”
“She is her own character,” says Tonkin. “She’s got her own storylines. She’s got her own interests and her own maybe, as I said, dark side to her. I think she’s a very powerful witch. She may be able to help with witchcraft and things like that. So, yeah, it’s going to be really interesting.”
In The Originals, Charles Michael Davis is Marcel Gerrard. He has ushered in a new era of peace in the French Quarter. After a daring rescue, the Mikaelsons are reunited, only to find themselves faced with an even bigger threat. An ancient evil is stirring that has strong ties to their most vulnerable family member.
Joseph Morgan is Klauss, the Original hybrid and Marcel’s captive. An army of unsired vampires is coming. Yusuf Gatewood is Vincent Griffith, the leader of the New Orleans witches. He may have no choice but to forge an alliance with Marcel in order to survive.
Phoebe Tonkin is Hayley ,who works tirelessly to find the means to revive the other Mikaelson siblings who remain trapped in an enchanted sleep. She protects Hope, her daughter with Klauss.
Daniel Gillies is Elijah, the eldest brother and ruthless family enforcer. At odds with the rest of his family and the world, he may lose the woman he has come to love.
Riley Voelkel is Freya. She vows to destroy anyone who would threaten her siblings, regardless of the sacrifice.
