Phoebe Jane Elizabeth Tonkin was born on July 12th in Sydney, Australia, but fans of The Originals know her as werewolf Hayley Marshall, mother of The Originals baby Hope and wife of Jackson Kenner.

Online in 2011. Phoebe and Claire Holt, Rebekah on The Originals and The Vampire Diaries, have been BFF’s since they co-starred on “H2O, Just Add Water” in 2005 in Australia.

Phoebe has been dating Paul Wesley, Stefan Salvatore on The Vampire Diaries, for over a year, and there are rumors that they’re engaged. She’ll be joining Paul and her cast mates, Joseph Morgan, Daniel Gillies, Charles Michael Davis, Leah Pipes, Yusuf Gatewood, Danielle Campbell, and executive producers Julie Plec and Michael Narducci at San Diego Comic-Con 2015, on July 10th, 2015!

Lsat summer she was busy making the thriller “Take Down,” filmed in Wales. The film also stars Jeremy Sumpter and Ed Westwick, was written by Alexander Ignon, and directed by Jim Gillespie who also directed “I Know What You Did Last Summer”!
