  • I wonder if she is a New Orleans witch? because I remember on the show it was said the witches practice ancestral magik;which requires them to stay in the city area in order to access the magik.

  • I needed to check to see if she was related to JoJo. It’s interesting how someone compared her to Bonnie because she’d probably be good for playing the book version of Bonnie.

  • Love the actress. I’m not sure I’ll be able to watch as I have something else in the timeslot, if her character is made a regular in the future I might reconsider though
