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

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.


There's a saying in my family. Kill a demon today, face the devil tomorrow. Yet even as you dance on that demon's grave, you can't help but wonder, was that demon alone? Or do you have other, deadlier ones to fight? And though you celebrate having won the battle, have you really prepared for the war? So as we dress ourselves in teh armor needed for this new fight, we must first tend to our wounds, starting with the deepest.
