THE VAMPIRE DIARIES: Daniella Pineda Cast in THE ORIGINALS Backdoor Pilot
February 2, 2013 by Marisa Roffman
There has been a lot of casting news for THE ORIGINALS (the potential VAMPIRE DIARIES spinoff which will premiere as a backdoor pilot this spring), but we now have news about our first actor/character who didn’t originate from The CW series: a CW rep has confirmed that Daniella Pineda will appear in THE ORIGINALS’ backdoor pilot as Sophie. (Naturally, Sophie isn’t just a normal girl — she’s a witch.)
According to Deadline (who was first to report the casting of Pineda), Sophie’s magic “has been silenced but not snuffed. A leader and a sexy, sharp-tongued social force, she is quietly sowing the seeds of a revolution amongst her peers.” Wonder which Original sibling she might find an ally in…
THE ORIGINALS’ backdoor pilot is set to air during THE VAMPIRE DIARIES’ April 25th episode. Are you excited to see what this new show might be?
