The Originals Maisie Richardson-Sellers met the original Rebekah, Claire Holt, and talks about a future with Marcel!

Claire Holt, The Originals original Rebekah, is a supporter of the new Rebekah, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, and recently they had a chance meeting in Los Angeles.

Maisie on meeting Claire Holt

I met her a couple weekends ago, by accident, actually. I was out with some of the writers in LA and she stopped by. We had a great chat about it all; she’s very warm, very welcome and very encouraging about the work I’ve been doing, which is great. She’s a sweetheart, and an amazing actress, so it’s a privilege for me to take on after her.

Like the original Rebekah, Maisie reveals the new Rebekah has inner demons, and she also talks about the new “dynamic” with Rebekah’s former love Marcel, and the reason we all should fear Dahlia.

Now that Eva is starting to fight to get her body back, Maisie says there will definitely be a battle. The original owner of Rebekah’s new body is pretty powerful and in the next episode it looks like she intends to kill Vincent, her ex and former host for Finn Mikaelson, played by Yusuf Gatewood.

Now that she’s no longer an all-powerful Originals, she’s more vulnerable than Marcel which will change the dynamic of the relationship between them, especially now that she’s in mortal danger from both inside and outside. Marcel is determined to protect and help her, so they’ll be spending time together.

Out of all of Rebekah’s lovers, Marcel is the only one Klaus hasn’t killed. In fact, he even gave them his blessing. Besides Elijah and Klaus, he’s the only constant in her life. Maisie says their relationship “is actually very tender and loving.” They care deeply for each other which can be seen in their scenes. She’s excited to discover how their relationship will develop, especially since she’s in a new body which is both awkward and will have lots of problems going forward.

Now that Dahlia will show up on the 2×17 “Exquisite Corpse” episode, the Mikaelsons will not only have to deal with what’s going on with Rebekah, but also have to deal with Dahlia and keeping Hope safe. Since Eva is so powerful, perhaps they could use that energy to help them defeat the coming threat. “The fact that the family also has this Rebekah/Eva situation to deal with isn’t going to make it easy for any of them.” But then we all know that the Mikaelson family and “easy” don’t seem to mix!
