Rebekah Mikaelson (Claire Holt) has returned in “The Originals” Season 2 to reunite with her siblings while dealing with the Mikaelson family issues involving Klaus’ (Joseph Morgan) daughter, Hope. The fans who are wondering if the blonde Original vampire will also reunite with her former flame Marcel (Charles Michael Davis), Aussie actress Claire Holt has the answer.
“I will say that I definitely shot a scene with him but I can’t say whether it’s romantic or positive or whatever,” Holt revealed to TVLine regarding her on-screen time with co-star Charles Michael Davis. In “The Originals” Season 1, Rebekah left New Orleans behind as well as the people she cares about in order to life the life that she wanted.
The 26-year-old Aussie actress revealed in the interview that it was a crazy time for her character, Rebekah, when she left in “The Originals” Season 1, episode 16 titled “Farewell to Storyville.” According to Claire Holt, Rebekah left with a lot of tension and friction with Klaus after the Original hybrid found out that his sister betrayed him when she summoned their “destroyer” father, Mikael (Sebastian Roché).
The actress shared that Rebekah’s return in “The Originals” Season 2 is one of the rare times that the Mikaelson family members come back together on the same side or team. However, Claire Holt admitted that the difficult part in Rebekah’s return is to give baby Hope back to her parents, Klaus and Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin), and she will struggle with it big time.
Claire Holt explained that raising baby Hope has made Rebekah want to have a child of her own. “She knows Hayley is Hope’s mother, and she has to return her, but she’s fiercely protective and loves that child. It’s going to be difficult for her,” Holt further added.

Holt, who plays Rebekah on the CW’s “The Vampire Diaries” and its offshoot “The Originals,” is among those testing for the lead role in CBS’s upcoming comic-book adaptation “Supergirl,” an individual familiar with the situation told TheWrap.
The one-hour drama project, which has received a series commitment from CBS, will follow the exploits of Kara Zor-El. Born on the planet Krypton, Kara Zor-El escaped amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she’s been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin (also known as Superman). But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.
Gerg Berlanti (“Green Lantern.” “Arrow,” “The Flash”) and Ali Adler (“Chuck,” “No Ordinary Family”) are writing and executive producing the project, with Sarah Schechter (“Pan”) also executive producing.
Best of luck to Claire for this role!
