This week’s episode of The Originals, titled “Farewell to Storyville,” was in fact a farewell for an original cast member.
Claire Holt, who plays Rebekah on The CW’s hit freshman series, is as of now no longer a series regular, The Wrap first reported.
UPDATE: While Buzzfeed claims it was Holt’s decision to leave the well-received and already renewed supernatural drama — a source tells that site it was never her intention to play Rebekah this long (?) — The Wrap says producers had decided that Rebekah’s storyline “advanced in such a way that she was no longer needed as a regular.” So… who has a coin to flip?
Prior to playing Rebekah (first on The Vampire Diaries), Holt’s credits included a few episodes of Pretty Little Liars and the series H20: Just Add Water.
