Originals Cast Taylor Cole

The Originals: Heroes Alum Taylor Cole Books Arc as Badass, In-Demand Vamp

The Originals is welcoming another good-looking vampire with questionable intentions to its ranks.

Taylor Cole (Heroes) will recur on the CW series as Sofya, a smart, badass vampire whose skills are highly sought after on the black market, TVLine has learned exclusively. Though her loyalty remains solely to herself, Sofya is always willing to lend a hand — to the highest bidder, of course.

Sofya will make her first appearance this season in Episode 16.

Cole’s previous TV credits also include arcs on Impastor, The Glades and CSI: Miami, plus episodes of Supernatural, Castle and Hawaii Five-0.

  1. Don’t forget that she was in The Event. That was a wonderful, cancelled-too-early show.

    Did she get cheek implants or something? Those look weird!

  3. Carlee says:

    And another white person….. This is the whitest New Orleans I have ever seen. Someone needs to talk to the casting department about their white washing.

    • Klaroline says:

      You do get that most of the characters aren’t from New Orleans?

      • Katie says:

        LMAO! Too true! The only ones that were born and raised in NO are Davina, Marcel, Vincent and Hayley. Jackson was born in the swamps as was Hayley but she was raised by Father Kieran in NO. Oh, yeah, not to mention Camille and little Hope Mikaelson. Other than that, everyone is else is from overseas! Apparently, no one else has pointed that out so thanks for that.

        • n3847 says:

          Hayley was not raised by Father Kieran or in NOLA. Marcel brought Hayley to Father Kieran after he found her parents dead and Hayley unharmed in her crib. Father Kieran had her adopted by a family.

    • Katie says:

      Ah, Carlee, are you watching the same show as the rest of us? “This is the whitest New Orleans I have ever seen.” Oh let me count they ways……. Vincent, Marcel, Eve (yes, she counts because Rebekah’s soul was re- taken by Eve’s soul and after destroying her soul, Rebekah CHOSE to stay in that body as much as possible.), Lenore had Esther jump into her and use her as a vessel. Oh, yes, and I almost forgot Tristian’s right hand woman, Aya. Now, two of those are just straight up dead, but I really don’t see Marcel or Vincent going anywhere else soon and Aya won’t give up without one wicked fight. As for this casting news, what does it matter? If you are so discontent with what you see as “white washing” then don’t watch and if you don’t watch it to begin with, then, why are you even posting here? *shrug* I think Taylor will do a good job with the role. It should be interesting.

    • While I think this show could use some characters of color that don’t die, because let’s face it…..most end up dead, I wouldn’t exactly call it white washing? They aren’t taking someone’s race away and making them white.
