The Originals Phoebe Tonkin confessed to ELLE her greatest fear is she’s “too ordinary” to be successful!

It’s hard to believe The Originals beautiful Phoebe Tonkin thinks she’s “too ordinary” according to an Interview she gave in the March, 2015, issue of ELLE Australia magazine.

With a starring role in The Original, girlfriend to handsome TV star Paul Wesley, magazine cover girl for ELLE and other magazines, and emerging film star, it’s difficult to believe her biggest fear when she moved to LA in 2011 was that she thought she was “too ordinary”!

Anybody watching her on the series and seeing her pictures would definitely consider her far from “ordinary.” Insiders in the entertainment industry consider her on the verge of Hollywood film stardom.

At 25 Phoebe has starred in three fan favorite TV shows, as Cleo Sertori on “H2O: Just Add Water” with Claire Holt, Faye Chamberlain on “The Secret Circle,” and Hayley Marshall on TVD and The Originals, also with BFF Claire Holt. But she still has her fears, and tries to keep things private in her personal life. She and Paul have been going together for about 18 months, after meeting on The Vampire Diaries and after Paul’s divorce from first wife Torrey DeVitto.

Phoebe on fears and Paul

My biggest fear was that I was too ordinary.

I definitely try not to put too much about my personal life but the other side of that is that I’m 25, and sometimes I’m happy and I want to share photos in the same way that all my other friends who are at uni or are working in Sydney do.

Currently she has two movies, gritty drama “The Ever After” with fellow Aussie Teresa Palmer and her husband Mark Webber, and upcoming “Take Down” starring Ed Westwick, Jeremy Sumpter, and Dominic Sherwood.

The synopsis for “The Ever After” is “Lovers struggle to overcome the everyday temptations of an ordinary human life; what they discover is somewhat extraordinary.” Phoebe plays a temptress having an affair with Thomas, the character that Mark Webber plays.

The synopsis for “Take Down” is “Students at a school for rebellious rich kids take matters into their own hands after the campus is taken hostage by a group of criminals.”

In the ELLE photoshoot, she wears a crisp white shirt revealing a hint of bra, the small script tatoo saying “Joy” showing on her right wrist.
