at . Comments

Claudia Black is on her way to New Orleans.

And New Orleans may wish to take cover as a result.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actress has been cast in the mysteriously evil role of Dahlia, the aunt of the Mikaelson siblings whose arrival has been teased for some time now on The Originals Season 2.

The character raised long-lost sister Freya and then froze her inside a coffin for 100 years.

She helped her own younger sister, Esther, conceive many centuries ago, but only in return for the first born of every generation. 

Now that the secret of baby Hope is out, and the child is clearly exhibiting some kind of magic power, Dahlia will swoop into town and cause SERIOUS problems for Klaus and company.

Look for Black to debut as Dahlia on The Originals Season 2 Episode 16, which airs on Monday, March 9 at 8/7c.

A veteran of the small screen, Black has appeared on such shows as Haven, 90210 and Rick and Morty.

The Originals Quotes

Over the course of my long life, I have come to believe that we are bound forever to those with whom we share blood. And while we may not choose our family, that bond can be our greatest strength, or our deepest regret. This unfortunate truth has haunted me for as long as I can recall.


They say the passage of time will heal all wounds, but the greater the loss, the deeper the cut and the more difficult the process to become whole again. The pain may fade, but scars serve as a reminder of our suffering and make the bearer all the more resolved never to be wounded again. So as time moves along we get lost in distractions, act out in frustration, react with aggression, give in to anger, and all the while we plot and plan as we wait to grow stronger, and before we know it, the time passes. We are healed. Ready to begin anew.
