Phoebe Tonkin is stepping into the spotlight.
Throughout the first half of The Originals Season 1, Tonkin's Hayley has been off in the background a bit, often lost in the crazy shuffle of evolving character relationships and developments in and around New Orleans.
But viewers saw Hayley step up big time on The Originals Season 1 Episode 17, giving a grand speech about survival and co-existing in The French Quarter while taking on a major leadership role among the werewolves.
What will she do next? Where will this role take the pregnant character? Will she give birth by season's end? What will Klaus be like as a father?
And between Elijah, Jackson and Oliver... how will she ever decide who to be with?!? We posed these questions and more to Tonkin on the red carpet of PaleyFest last month:
New episodes of this CW smash return on April 15.
Until then, you can always watch The Originals online via TV Fanatic and quickly catch up.
