Daniella Pineda Joins 'The Originals'

Daniella Pineda is the newest actor to join The Originals, a spin-off from The Vampire Diaries.

She’ll play Sophie, a witch whose magic has been silenced but not snuffed. A leader and a sexy, sharp-tongued social force, she is quietly sowing the seeds of a revolution amongst her peers, Deadline reports.

The Originals centers on the Original family of vampires, as Klaus (Joseph Morgan) returns to the supernatural melting pot that is the French Quarter of New Orleans – a town he helped build centuries ago – and is reunited with his diabolical former protégé Marcel. Elijah (Daniel Gillies), intent on helping his self-destructive brother find redemption, must side with Marcel’s enemies in order to keep Klaus in line.

Phoebe Tonkin will reprise her role as Hayley.
