The Vampire Diaries actor met up with ex-girlfriend Phoebe Tonkin at Madeo Restaurant on Thursday night (March 6) in West Hollywood, Calif., and he made sure to open the car door for her after they made their exit.
Phoebe looked stylish after having just attended a dinner hosted by Chanel with some of her girlfriends, including Bella Heathcote and Teresa Palmer.
“Thank you @chanelofficial for a beautiful dinner and thank you to these beauties for the company and the cuddles and the ravioli #thegabriellebag #cococrush,” Phoebe shared on Instagram.
Things are getting very serious on tonight’s all-new Originals.
Desperate to save her daughter, Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) turns to Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) for help uncovering information about the mysterious force that has set its sights on the children of New Orleans.
“That’s what’s so terrifying about the big bad of the season is that they don’t really know much about it,” Phoebe shared with EW. “They don’t know why it’s here; they don’t know what it wants, and once it starts to feel like maybe this is something directly affecting or directly targeting Hope, that’s when everything gets serious.”
She adds, “Once you’re talking about protecting a 7-year-old who doesn’t understand her powers yet or anything, that’s when the stakes become very high.”
Speaking with Screener recently, Phoebe opened up about the Vampire Diaries character she’d love to have on The Originals — and it’s not a surprise at all.
“I’ve always thought there was definitely room for Caroline to come over,” she shared. “I just love Candice [King], and would like that personally. That’s my social life! But I also just think bringing Caroline would be interesting.”
However, Phoebe really wouldn’t mind if they all crossed over.
“Any of those characters, I think, could definitely cross over at some point. I mean, obviously not Stefan because he’s dead,” Phoebe adds. “But I think there’s definitely room for characters, especially now, with the time jump and stuff.”

Executive producer Michael Narducci told TVLine.com, “It’s the height of selfishness and irresponsibility to not put [Hope’s] needs and concerns first. I’m not saying Hope is an obstacle to anyone’s happiness — far from it, since she’s the source of their inspiration and possibly their redemption — but she’s going to be the center of a lot of what’s going on moving forward.”
Phoebe added, “Not only does she have a mother and father who are willing to do anything to keep her safe, but this little girl also has all these very protective aunts and uncles,” she explains. “It’s a nice thing to see all these grown adults who are just completely devoted to this young girl.”
“Some people find nudes in their camera roll,” Shelley captioned on her Instagram. “Adventures of #fayana @phoebejtonkin.”
The silly collage of pics didn’t feature any nudity whatsoever, but just about everything else — a wrapper on the counter, a close up of a Phoebe and Shelley selfie (which is super cute!), luggage, and posing for pics in the kitchen.
You will definitely feel the friction between Hayley and Freya on tonight’s episode of The Originals.
Phoebe Tonkin, who plays Hayley, has opened up about their dislike for each other on the show right now, saying, “They’re both very pivotal in the men’s decisions, and sometimes Hayley and Freya have conflicting opinions.”
She continues, “They’ve both been starved of family for so long, in their respective ways, that they feel very protective of their family. They just don’t necessarily see eye to eye on how to support or advise their family members.”
So, will they ever move past it all? “I think you’re going to see a little bit of that kind of conflict, in the next few episodes.”
Phoebe adds, “That’s something that we do explore, and that’s really nice to have. Freya and Hayley didn’t have much to do with each other last season, so it’s really nice to play with that, this season.”
Tune into The Originals TONIGHT @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.
