Nearly 10 years to the day of her first appearance as Rebekah Mikaelson on The Vampire Diaries, Claire Holt is returning to Mystic Falls via Thursday’s Legacies — but she’s hardly the only actor to appear on multiple shows within this shared universe.
By our count, Holt is one of 25 performers to appear in major roles on at least two shows within the TVD-verse, including The Originals. She’s also part of a very exclusive group of actors to show up on all three shows, which is basically the equivalent of EGOTing as far as we’re concerned.
As we eagerly await Rebekah’s momentous appearance on Legacies, let’s take a look at the other 24 actors who similarly crossed between shows. Once you’ve soaked up all that sweet synergy, drop a comment with an actor from either The Vampire Diaries or The Originals you’d like to see pop up on Legacies. (For the record, their character can be dead. Let’s not forget what universe we’re operating in.)
