Very Happy 27th Happy Birthday to Claire Holt, the original Rebekah Mikaelson on The Originals!

Claire Holt, the original Rebekah Mikaelson on The Originals, celebrates her 27th birthday on June 11th! Like the series, Claire has indicated she’s on hiatus from the show and is currently playing Officer Charmain Tully on Aquarius, starring David Duchovny. Although she’s no longer listed as a series regular, she returned in the season 2 finale “Ashes to Ashes” to help her family defeat Dahlia and save baby Hope.

Claire Rhiannon Holt, born in Brisbane, Australia, graduated in 2005 from Stuartholme School, a Catholic girl’s school in Toowong, a suburb of Brisbane. When in school she was active in the choir and several sports, including swimming, water polo, and volleyball. She also has a black belt in Tae-Kwon-Do, although there’s no info as to whether she uses it in Aquarius! Either way, don’t miss with Miss Claire!

She got the role of Emma Gilbert, no relation to Elena, on “H2O: Just Add Water,” where she met her BFF Phoebe Tonkin. When the series was picked up they were both excited about working together, so hopefully she’ll return to the series at least on a semi-regular basis after Aquarius wraps it’s first season.

Claire surprised fans when she exited the series after “Farewell to Storyville” aired, driving away into the night with a smile on her face. Although there were many rumors, she announced her contract had ended, she wanted to spend time with her family, and she would definitely return. True to her promise, she returned twice in season 2.

Aquarius has been envisioned as a six season series, so we’ll have to see if it’s renewed and if Officer Charmain Tully survives undercover with the Manson cult.

Happy 27th birthday, Claire, and come back soon to The Originals! We all miss you!
