Phoebe Tonkin Says Her Final Scene in 'The Originals' Was A 'Very Emotional Goodbye'

Phoebe Tonkin has said goodbye to The Originals.

In a new interview with W magazine, the Aussie actress opened up about wrapping up her final scene over the weekend.

“It was a very emotional goodbye,” she shared. “I don’t think I’ve totally digested it.”

Phoebe adds of the show, “It has been a really big opportunity for me, and I am so grateful for the last five years, but also really excited to see what is next.”

As for what’s ahead, Phoebe teases a “little break, but also start to work on some different material or different type of role. I was fortunate enough to do this miniseries in Australia, which gave me the bug again to find smaller, interesting, edgier pieces.”

If you missed it, it was confirmed that Leah Pipes would be returning as Cami for the final episode.

    Very disappointed that Julie Plec killed of Hayley. Hayley is my only favorite character, she is one of the main characters of The Originals and it’s super unprofessional to kill one of the amazing characters on The Originals. Hayley is Hope’s mom, are they just gonna rip her mom away from her ? Hayley has tried so hard to keep her daughter happy and safe and this is what she gets in return? Hayley deserves so much more happiness and she doesn’t deserve to die. The Originals is my favorite show but without Hayley I’m done with it.

    The Originals season 4 was the best season,and now Julie will ruin the show with Candice and Caroline. Julie Plec made a TVD final atrocious, and now by killing off Hayley TO final will be the worst final Julie Plec ever made

    Julie call herself feminist but she have killed off 2/3 lead females roles so far. In season 5 she killed off Hayley. Despite the fact that Hayley is the lead female character and she has a 15 year old daughter who needs her mother. Hayley doesn’t deserve to die in the last season of TO. The females in this show are only used for the purposes of ships and are killed off as soon as they get their own storyline. The Originals season 4 should have been the last. Julie Plec will ruin everything in s5. I won’t watch TO s5 and anything else Julie Plec has her hands on.

    Julie Plec talk a big game about feminism yet she kill one of the strongest females in their show. Hayley is a great character and she is vital to the show. Hayley deserves to be alive with her daughter she deserves the best ending with Hope.

    The Originals has a very bad habit of killing off it’s female characters. Male series regular has never suffered the same fate. Hayley is such a strong female character: she doesn’t need anyone but herself – all she wants is to protect Hope, by taking her away from the show Julie Plec ruin the show.

  • Alice

    Julie Plec thinks she can kill Hope’s mother because she suddenly
    decided to bring a certain blonde vampire from a deceased show to The Originals. I will not continue to watch a show made by people who disrespect the fandom like that.

    Hayley is a strong character that has been through so much. It is so cruel that the writers will even consider to take Hayley away from Hope. Hayley should be alive for her daughters sake. Hayley is definitely by far my favorite character. I will not watch TO if Hayley dies.

  • Andre

    Hayley is the backbone of this show. It is not fair to kill her off. Hayley didn’t get the chance to fully know her mother so Hope should be able to get that chance. Hayley fought for years for the safety of her child even before Hope was born. Hayley deserves every right and happiness with the child she gave life to. Hayley should be alive.

    Julie seems to have a problem with moms, she constantly kills them in
    her show. She killed off Katie in Containment, Jo in TVD, and now she
    want to do the same in TO. It’s really disgusting. It looks like that Julie think the only mother who deserve to live is Caroline. It is disgusting that Julie think it is ok to kill off a mother.

  • Fernanda

    Hayley is amazing character and great mother. Hayley can’t die. She doesn’t deserve this! Hayley deserves the best ending with Hope. Julie Plec really shouldn’t ruin the show on its last season. If Julie Plec kill off Hayley I will boycott this show.
