Claire Holt chatted with MTV News ahead of Thursday night’s “dangerous” mid-season finale (titled “Savior“), and here’s what she had to say about Rebekah’s frustrating new situation:

MTV News: Holidays are all about family, so we’re happy the Mikaelsons are getting back together this holiday season. We really miss the relationship between Rebekah, Elijah and Klaus. What was it like to reconnect with Joseph Morgan and Daniel Gillies for this holiday episode?

Claire Holt: “It’s always so wonderful. I really love those boys like family, and we’ve had such a long relationship and we’ve been playing these characters for such a long time. I always have so much fun with them. It’s just such a treat to get to go back and revisit that with them.”

MTV: Not only do we have this deadly Mikaelson family prophecy to worry about, but now the Strix have gone and placed a curse on Rebekah. This is clearly a recipe for disaster. Where is Rebekah’s head at in this episode?

Claire Holt: “She’s certainly very unhinged in this episode, and I think a lot of her craziness is directed at the wrong people. She can’t seem to control it. But she’s frustrated with her circumstances, and she wants revenge on whoever has cursed her family. The Mikaelsons are facing some really hard things, with the prophecy and everything else going on, so there’s a lot to deal with.”

“She would rather not be tricked, which she seems to find herself in that situation quite frequently, or at the bottom of the ocean, or in a coffin. She wants none of that. But her bond with her family seems to be getting stronger. It’s nice to see them put on a united front, as opposed to fighting with each other.”

MTV: We saw Rebekah snap poor Elijah’s neck in the promo. Was there a itsy bitsy part of her that kind of enjoyed that?

Claire Holt: “I think she’s pretty fond of Elijah. I don’t think she was in her right mind when she did that.”

MTV: From an actor’s standpoint, playing a character who’s going progressively mad sounds like the most fun ever.

Claire Holt: “It is the most fun. To get to play the unhinged version of Rebekah may be my favorite. Although, it is quite tough to have to spit evil lines at very nice people, like poor Phoebe [Tonkin], who plays Hayley. I didn’t enjoy having to get into it with her because she’s my friend and that was weird.”

MTV: Rebekah literally throws her off a banister.

Claire Holt: “It was pretty nuts! We have some amazing stuntwomen who help us look good, but I certainly did some myself. It was tough! I ended up with some bruises, but it was really fun. That’s the great thing about the show. We get to do the action, but then we get to really focus on the drama and the more intimate parts of the family relationships, which we get to later on in the episode.”

MTV: Those scenes between baby Hope and her auntie Rebekah are always so wonderful to see. Will we get to see any of that in the midseason finale?

Claire Holt: “I don’t think that she’s had too much time to focus on Hope. There’s a lot of bad stuff going on. But I loved filming the scene where we got to reconnect as a family and enjoy our Christmas tradition. It’s always so nice to film those holiday episodes because the Mikaelsons are a little more grateful and hopeful, as opposed to terrifying or killing people.”

MTV: If she survives this prophecy, do you think Rebekah can find happiness again?

Claire Holt: “I hope so. I hope for her sake. I think a lot of it comes from within. She’s faced a lot of demons, and some of them are her family and part of them are her own and in the outside world. I hope she gets there. I’d like to see her find it.”

MTV: Are you down to return for more episodes in the future?

Claire Holt: “I am always open to playing Rebekah. I love her. Whenever my schedule and their creative vision line up, I’m ready, willing and able.”

MTV: And finally, we have to know if there’s some secret Aussie club over at The CW because there are so many Aussies on the network these days. There has to be some sort of secret coalition.

Claire Holt: “I think we just don’t take no for an answer is probably what it is. [Laughs] We have a great relationship on set. There’s so many Australians on the show now. There’s Rebecca Breeds and Andy [Lees] and Ollie Ackland and Phoebe and myself. There are a lot of Aussies on “The Originals.” It’s nice because we’re so far away from home, so to get to spend time with people who grew up like you and understand the crazy things you say — you can call it a capsicum and not a red bell pepper — that’s really fun.”

“The thing that we talk about a lot is how you have to change what you say so people understand you, but it’s nice just to be able to speak our own language.”

Posted on September 19, 2015   Categories: Aquarius , NewsComments Off on Q&A: Claire Holt talks Aquarius and working with David Duchovny

Claire did a Q&A with the web SMH. Read the full Q&A below.


So, you spent four years in the world of The Vampire Diaries and its spin-off series The Originals. You have left that world. Why did you decide to do Aquarius?

You know, I was looking for something totally different, I read the script and just immediately connected to it. It felt so original and so unique and something that I’ve never really done before and then the opportunity to work with David [Duchovny​] was a huge plus. And then also to play a character [Charmain Tully] that was really at the forefront of women’s rights. I fought my butt off for this role. I was really passionate about it.

Do you see her story as a quintessentially feminist story, in that she’s ahead of the curve in the late 1960s in the police world?

Absolutely. I think what’s amazing about this character is she really is the first female to be allowed to do anything of significance in the police force. Women [police officers] made coffee and they did the filing and they were basically glorified secretaries. Being given a chance to go undercover and to do things that women really weren’t allowed to do, it was really exciting.

There’s a scene in the pilot, when she’s undercover, and she’s almost bartered for sex, that was an intense scene, but very revealing about the era and the issues women faced.

Totally. She has no chance to say no and I think, you know, she had wanted so badly to be given the opportunity to go undercover and to do something of significance, I think there was this internal struggle for her. What’s really cool I think in the end is how Shafe … is sort of protective of her and respectful of her and it shows the really nice bond and chemistry that they start to create throughout the series.

Do you see this as a period piece, in terms of the look, the clothes, the architecture, the furniture, all the little touches?

Everything. I mean, from the costume to the hair and make-up to the set design to the music. It’s really an era that I’m so excited to be able to delve into and it’s definitely a period piece. I was born in the 1980s, so learning about the late 1960s was really fascinating, not only just because of the way things looked and sounded but because of what was going on in society at that time.

So, Charmain has a certain physicality, her police uniform, her hair pulled back, it’s a very severe look. Do you inhabit that physicality consciously?

Totally. Putting on the uniform … I automatically develop kind of a certain posture. When I put on her clothes, and when I have her hair, whilst I’m still wearing a skirt, which is mind-boggling to me, and I carry my gun in a handbag, it’s definitely empowering to put that suit on and it helps me to feel what I think Charmain would have been feeling.

Working with David Duchovny, he’s a bit of a legend because of The X Files, and based on your age, you perhaps knew him as a star before you became a working actress. Does the man live up to his celebrity?

He’s frighteningly talented and … it was incredibly intimidating when I first started. I think Grey [co-star Grey Damon] and I both bonded over that, this formidable force, this amazing actor who has already had a hugely successful career. To come and try and stand next to him in a scene and try and hold your own, it’s frightening, it’s a frightening prospect. But he’s been so wonderful and so generous as an actor and he’s really great to work with. He’s a really supportive scene partner. That’s what has been so cool … having this preconceived idea of this person, getting to work with him, and seeing him as a person and how his work ethic is so amazing.

“Claire is phenomenal and we love to have her on the show. We’ve got a whole flashback storyline that she will participate in, and then we have some ideas on how we might see Rebekah again in present day in both bodies. Not at the same time!”
