Claire Holt Cast as Series Regular on Aquarius

at . Comments

Claire Holt is trading in her fangs for a badge.

The actress, who unexpectedly left The Originals Season 1 about three-quarters of the way through, has signed on for a regular role on Aquarius.

The Australian star will play a key role on NBC’s upcoming Charles Manson-themed event series, coming on board as tough-skinned police officer Charmain Tully.

Julie Plec, however, has said many times that Rebekah is welcome back in New Orleans at any time, while The Originals Season 2 trailer kicks off with Holt's character telling her niece a bedtime story.

Still, this news ends any possibility of Holt returning to The CW on a more permanent basis any time soon.

Holt joins an impressive cast of Aquarius, one that includes:

  • David Duchovny (Californication)
  • Gaius Charles (Grey’s Anatomy)
  • Grey Damon (Star-Crossed)
  • Michaela McManus (The Vampire Diaries)
  • David Meunier (Justified)
  • Emma Dumont (Bunheads)
  • Chris Sheffield (The Last Ship)
  • Gethin Anthony (Game of Thrones)

Matt Richenthal is the Editor in Chief of TV Fanatic. Follow him on Twitter and on Google+.


Huge congrats to her! As much as it pains me not to see Rebekah as a permanent part of the show, I guess she can still make some guests appearences every once in awhile and the actress deserves this! Can't wait to see her in her new project! I wish her all the best!

I thought she left The Originals because she was exhausted and wanted to spend time with her family in Australia. Sounds like she was not happy on The Originals.

Maybe it was the money?
