Containment‘s Christina Moses has caught the CW bug.
Fresh from her one-season run on the network’s contagion thriller, the actress is jumping to The Originals in a recurring role, Deadline reports. (Both shows are EP’d by Julie Plec. so we’re guessing the two of them hit it off during their time on Containment).
Moses’ character, Keelin, is a smart, strong resourceful ER doctor – and the last living werewolf of her line. She’s also openly bisexual. After the rest of her family was hunted to extinction, she went into hiding and since then she’s deliberately avoided getting too close to anyone. She lives in fear of being discovered by the wrong people and has no idea that she’s currently on a collision course with the Mikaelsons.
Moses will debut early into The Originals‘ fourth season, which is being held until midseason.
Speaking of Containment alums/Plec faves, Moses’ co-star, Kristen Gutoskie, has booked a recurring gig on The Originals‘ sister show The Vampire Diaries. She’ll play Seline, a warm, nurturing nanny of two young kids by day, and a small-town girl trying to find her place in a dangerous world by night. Bonded to her new “family” in ways she can’t explain, Seline will fight desperately to protect the ones she loves. She’ll first appear in TVD‘s Season 8 premiere on Friday, Oct. 21 8/7c).
