Danielle Campbell Joins Cast of The Originals

by at . Comments

The Originals has cast another witch.

Danielle Campbell, who enjoyed an extended run on Prison Break in 2006-07, has signed on for The Vampire Diaries spinoff as Davina, described by The Hollywood Reporter as a "troubled witch" who has been sheltered by years by caregivers.

But look for this "delicate" young woman to possess demons of her own that will come out as times goes by.

The Vampire Diaries: Exclusive Cast Scoop!

We talked to the cast of The Vampire Diaries at Comic-Con. Ready for some Season 6 scoop?


It looks like she might cause trouble once she comes up but I just want the show to run normal again. ;P


She looks like she could be Selena Gomez's twin.... I wonder what will happen if this does get picked up to series....


Luka and Jonas were not related to Bonnie neither was Bree and the witch Klaus visit in season 3 so that being the reason is stupid, the writers called out on it when jonas and luka were introduced. Also not all blacks are related to one another so it annoying the show keeps making many of the black females related to one another cause seriously most black Americans don't know their ancestry so idea keep making people related to Bonnie like Ayanna and Ketsia is effing ridiculous (on the Ketsia part how the hell would Shane know that) like it more likely Bonnie has white ancestors as no black family in america is strictly of african descent.


Still no sign of Rebekah? C'mon guys, is she going to die or what?


I dont think they make all the witches black for any reason other than they were related to bonnie, who may i remind you, is the only not white main character in the whole show.


Puuuuuuuhlease take Caroline AND Stefan with you Klaus!


@ Spindae 2.o Ahhh yes... Bonnie's cousin !! I wonder what happened to her,she was a great character


Hmmm. Well alrighty then.


I would like they brought back Katarinas witch from the ball in 2x08.The bennet connected witch!


I agree with the racial line!!
and I can't wait to see the new series, without the Originals, TVD will soon be gone...because who cares about another back and forth of Elena between the brothers. Oh and plllllllllllleeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaasssssssssssssseeeeeeeeeeeeeee take Caroline with you, Klaus :)
