I so don't want to watch the originals anymore with Rebekah gone, why did she have to leave! Rebekah was my favourite character in this show and even on her short Vampire Diaries run, I really hope they reconsider and bring her back!
I didnt know that this was due to a casting change. That does really suck since her character always had interesting issues/dynamics with the others. Its going to make the power struggle between Marcel and klaus seem kind of off. I dont know how you can wrap up Klaus' story line well without Rebekah in it.
As much as I like Claire Holt, if The Originals is still going smoothly ahead into the future, aka: Season 2, then to be brutally honest they should have done some sort of "witchy" thing and forced an appearance change on Rebekah. Allowing for a casting change; though admittedly this is stupid, but it is perhaps not quite as bad as just letting her go from the show entirely.
I wonder just what exactly happened to make an actor stop part way through a season, and especially when this is an extremely crucial point being Season One... It seems odd.
You're right about Marcel though, it is going to be VERY weird with him trying to play favorites or control the back scenes when he has lost one of his most crucial "board pieces". Even the dialogue in the last episode when the good ye'old cursed father made sure to remind us all that the humans, especially, want Marcel to run things and NOT Klaus. Almost as though they were blatantly trying to convince us that Marcel is terribly needed still (and for some stupid reason they are ready to have Marcel hand Davina off as well, when his power struggle and ability to control the city is at an all-time low...).
I saw that there had been some issues within The Originals crew, at least rumor wise. Has anybody heard anything that would explain why exactly Claire would leave at such an odd time not only as an actor but for the show as well (leaving her fellow actors and the writers a little "high and dry" to be honest).
According to the article recapping Farwall to Storyville the writer mentioned something about Claire Holt not wanting to live in Atlanta but that may be the official reason, if it was something more personal regarding issues during filming they might want to keep it quiet due the subject if it's sensitive enough. I also read that either Claire Holt or Julie Plec have commented on this situation. Also, Claire Holt was the last of the main cast to sign up and she never signed up for a whole season.
I also read somewhere that she is scheduled to return as a guest star. The reason they gave for her departure was that her characters storyline had advanced too quickly. It may be the atlanta thing, maybe she just wanted to spend more time with her family. She's Australian right? Hopefully leaving the door open lets her come back in a cool way with an awesome storyline.
I still want to watch The Originals but i would really wish that they would work very hard to bring good storylines like Klaus's werewolf family and plz also bring some improvement and development in Hayley's character......the character irritates me alot sometimes.....it's because of this poor development in Hayley's character that i don't like watching her much
You know the dirt?! Ah, please don't tell us that she ended up with a fight against Julie Plec just like Matthew Davis who played Alaric?
What do you think?
