Claudia Black, Dahlia, The Originals

Farscape’s Claudia Black has been cast as powerful witch Dahlia who is coming for Hope on The Originals!

The Originals powerful witch Dahlia, Esther’s sister, who took Freya and promised to take the first born forever has been cast as Farscape’s Claudia Black.

Wicked witch Dahlia is the maternal aunt of the Mikaelson siblings, and helped sister Esther get pregnant with a fertility spell. But it came at the high price of the first born of every generation, beginning with Esther’s oldest child, Freya.

Somewhere in the past thousand plus years, Freya, played by Riley Voelkel, escaped her clutches and has been evading her as Dahlia hunts for her. Now that Klaus has daughter Hope, Dahlia will be coming for her once she discovers the child’s existence.

The showdown between Dahlia and Klaus begins with 2×16 “Save My Soul” when she’ll make her first appearance. According to executive producer Michael Narducci, the rest of the season will deal with her presence.

Claudia Black was born and raised in Sydney, New South Wales, in Australia, and has lived in New Zealand, Canada, England, and the United States. Both of her parents are doctors, so she definitely took a different path.

She gained international recognition as Officer Aeryn Sun in Farscape, and was nominated for a Best Actress Saturn Award in 2001 and 2002, and won in 2005. Other roles include Pandora in “Queen of the Damned,” Vala Mal Doran in “Stargate SG-1,” Moira in “Haven,” and The Cleaner in “Moonlight.” “Moonlight,” 2006 on CBS, was about vampire seeking redemption Mick St. John, played by Alex O’Loughlin. Like Joseph, playing a vampire was a dream come true for Alex, too!
