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 August 30, 2015   Categories: News , The OriginalsComments Off on “The Originals”: Claire To Return For Season 3 Flashbacks
Something to look forward to in the Originals Season 3 is flashbacks and Claire Holt’s return as Rebekah, and executive producer Michael Narducci told E! News that they’re lucking out with her schedule to make that work – and they’re looking to bring her back for more and not just in flashbacks.

“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!”

The Originals Season 3 premieres Thursday, October 8 at 9 p.m. on the CW.

After leaving the show in the first season to focus on other things, Claire Holt, who played the role of  Rebekah Mikaelson, Klaus and Elijah’s sister, has expressed openness to return to the show after her guest appearance towards the last episodes of Season 2.

“I’d love to! I’m on another show right now, Aquarius, and it’s about to air. Obviously the fate of the show in the future is uncertain, but I would love to be able to do both if possible. Rebekah is so special to me, and anytime I get to go back and visit that world and New Orleans and my family there, I’m on that plane ready to go,” Holt told EW in an interview when asked if she would like to return to her character in the show.

Posted on May 6, 2015   Categories: News , The OriginalsComments Off on “The Originals”: Claire Holt Returns!

Claire Holt is back (and in danger of being daggered)! With Claire Holt returning, we also get the return of Rebekah, the Original vampire, which will change things.

Narducci Quotes:

“If Rebekah is in her original bod, she’s a little bit more durable and a little bit less likely to be easily killed in battle,” Narducci said. “

Maybe Klaus plan was to put her back in that original body to protect her, and to make sure that nothing happened to her. Or maybe he did what he did because he wanted to delay her and keep her out of the fight as long as possible. I think it very much, as Rebekah pointed out in Monday night’s episode, was also a punishment.

“And then finally, I think—it’s very interesting of Klaus. This is something he has done throughout all the time that we’ve known him—he daggers his siblings and he stores them away as punishment until such time as he wants to bring them back. And he can’t dagger Rebekah in Eva Sinclair’s body. But if she’s in Rebekah’s body—in Claire Holt’s body—he can dagger her. So it’s all kind of playing into who Klaus is and why he does certain things.”

Posted on April 8, 2015   Categories: News , The OriginalsComments Off on “The Originals”: Claire Teases Her Return As Rebekah Mikaelson

With Season 2 of “The Originals” winding down, viewers of the hit CW series have been left to wonder if the original Rebekah, portrayed by Claire Holt, will be returning. And lucky for fans, it looks like the blond actress may appear sooner than we thought!

Holt, who stars in the upcoming NBC show “Aquarius,” dished to E! News that it’s quite possible she may be slipping back into her fangs before we know it.

“Yes!” she confirmed her future return to the show. “They’ve been really great with ‘Aquarius,’ in sharing, so I hope I can continue to do both in some capacity.” the actress said.

Currently the role of Rebekah is being played by Maisie Richardson-Sellers. Rebekah’s pesky brother Kol (Daniel Sharman) forced the soul of Holt’s character into the body of a wicked witch named Eva Sinclair, who was responsible for the disappearance of dozens of children throughout New Orleans. However, in episode 17, the spirit of the evil enchantress was killed, allowing Rebekah to freely live in the vessel.

In one of the latest episodes of “The Originals,” Richardson-Sellers’ character revealed she had no interest in leaving her current, fleshy inhabitant, believing it would result in the death of Davina (Danielle Campbell) and all the other youthful witches who were still connected to Eva through the deep and powerful spell. This had fans questioning if Rebekah would ever return to her original form.

“Definitely, when I can, I am going to venture back to that world,” the multitasking actress confirmed to E! News.

But Holt’s in no rush to sink her teeth back into the storyline of “The Originals” — especially because her character is in the hands of such a talented actress. “She’s doing a great job. Maybe a little too good,” Holt jokingly said of her character being taken on by Richardson-Sellers. “I was hoping she wouldn’t be so good.”

Richardson-Sellers revealed to TVLine in March that Holt has been nothing but supportive of her representation of Rebekah. In fact, Holt relayed that message to the actress personally she when paid the CW set a surprise visit.

“I met her a couple weekends ago, by accident, actually,” Richardson-Sellers explained. “I was out with some of the writers in L.A. and she stopped by. We had a great chat about it all. She’s very warm, very [welcoming] and very encouraging about the work I’ve been doing, which is great. She’s a sweetheart, and an amazing actress, so it’s a privilege for me to take on after her.”
