Claire Sets The Record Straight On Her Departure from “The Originals”

Fans were shocked earlier this month when The Originals star Claire Holt suddenly exited the show before the end of Season 1. Though some speculated that Rebekah Mikaelson’s story line had run dry, Holt set the record straight at Saturday’s PaleyFest event.

“I wasn’t pushed out,” she said. “I didn’t quit midseason. This was something we discussed form the start. I made a life choice, not a career choice. I made a choice to come home for a while. I realized I hadn’t seen people that I loved and cared about for a while. It was so tough for me.”
The last we saw of Rebekah, her brother Klaus (Joseph Morgan) had vowed to kill her after discovering that she had brought their dastardly father to New Orleans in the past. But the two came to a détente, with Klaus setting Rebekah free. Fortunately, that’s not the last time we’ll see Rebekah.

“I sure hope not,” Holt said. “As far as I’m concerned, this is a temporary hiatus. I do realize that I’m so not ready to let go of the Mikaelsons, so I hope there are many more stories to tell.”

Claire Holt’s Exit From The Originals: Personal Decision to Leave as Series Regular

“The Originals” Episode 16 titled “Farewell to Storyville” was accurately a send-off story for Original vampire character Rebekah Mikaelson and Australian actress Claire Holt who portrays the role. Fans of the CW spin-off series were quick to react and ask a lot of questions and the latest reports reveal that it was completely the Aussie actress’ personal decision to leave as series regular and not a creative decision.

The ending scene showed Rebekah Mikaelson leaving New Orleans and looking happy to be free to do whatever she wants after Klaus decided to just let her go instead of kill her for the betrayal that she did. The BuzzFeed report confirms the exit from the successful TV series was actress Claire Holt’s decision and she has not given any comment yet on the current situation of her character as well as the series creator Julie Plec.

Rebekah Mikaelson may be a fool when it comes to love but the character still became a fan-favorite because of her kick-ass personality. Rebeka’s exit in “The Originals” had fans discussing and hoping that the blonde Original vampire will still come back to New Orleans and reunite with Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and Klaus (Joseph Morgan).

Other speculations even suggest Rebekah Mikaelson will go back to Mystic Falls and reunite with “The Vampire Diaries” gang. Unfortunately, the Hypable report on Claire Holt’s exit further revealed that it may not be the case.

“Sources close to the actress claim that Holt never intended to play Rebekah for as long as she did, since her character was originally planned for a three-episode arc in The Vampire Diaries. This change is especially interesting given that The Originals has been renewed for a second season and now only has two Originals. It would be odd to have a show all about the Original family with only two of them left to tell the story,” the report reads.

After airing “The Originals” Episode 16, co-star Joseph Morgan immediately posted on the social networking site Twitter about Claire Holt’s exit, the Just Jared Jr. reports. Executive producer Julie Plec has not given any comment yet but she has teased about Rebekah’s fate in the series before the episode’s airing


Claire Holt Exits “The Originals”

The circumstances about how Rebekah was written off is behind the read more in a effort to keep viewers who have not seen the episode, spoiler free.

This week’s episode of The Originals, titled”Farewell to Storyville,” should have been titled “Farewell to Claire Holt,” because the actress, who’s portrayed Original vampire Rebekah Mikaelson on The Vampire Diaries and its subsequent spin-off since 2011, has left the show. According to BuzzFeed, it was entirely Holt’s decision to exit, and not a creative decision. Neither Holt nor series creator Julie Plec has commented on the situation.
