Fans of The Originals should hang on to their fangs and prepare for the return of a beloved character.
Claire Holt, who plays Rebecca in the series, has been in and out of the show for a while now and it sounds like she could be on her way back in again for the upcoming third season.
We know the new season will explore the mythology behind, and introduce fans to, some of the first sired vampires, the poor souls who were among the first turned by the Mikaelsons, and that includes those changed by Rebekah.
“Aurora is part of Rebekah’s sire line,” The Originals EP Michael Narducci told E! News at the 2015 Summer TCA press tour. “So we’ll get to see some flashbacks between Rebekah and Aurora, and we’ll also get to see Aurora come to our present day New Orleans and wreak some fun havoc. Absolutely, that means that Claire is returning. In flashbacks, it would have to be Claire.”
Aurora will be portrayed by Rebecca Breed, and is described as “enigmatic” as well as “sexy, seductive, witty and free-spirited.” Aurora is “the life of the party. However, she also has a dark side, and is also known for being malevolent, dangerous and extremely violent.”
The Originals returns to The CW on Thursday October 8th 9:00pm, following The Vampire Diaries season premiere.
