The super talented actress, who you may recognize as Dahlia from The Originals, now stars as Sabine Lommers, the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

“Sabine is the boss lady with the weight of the world on her shoulders,” Claudia tells JJJ. “She’s a control freak in a situation that’s nearly impossible to control. She’s cold, hard and I suspect, very, very lonely.”

Check out our interview with Claudia below! What is Sabine’s personal goal as the story begins and as it moves on? What is her ultimate professional goal?

Claudia Black: Sabine’s agenda is containment. She’s seen what happens when people don’t follow the rules and she doesn’t have a second to spare. I’m sure she’d loved to be the first female president.

JJJ: Sabine goes to Lex about being the face of the CDC cause and he’s reluctant. Why do you think she chose him?

CB: It’s his area of Atlanta. The people trust him; and when fear takes over trust becomes an essential commodity.
