British actress Jaime Murry, best known for playing H.G. Wells in “Warehouse 13” and Black Fairy / Fiona in “Once Upon a Time,” is set to join “The Originals” cast for the show’s fifth and final season as the mysterious vampire Antoinette.
Murry’s first appearance as Antoinette will be in “Ne Me Quitte Pas,” the final season’s third episode. There is currently no synopsis for the said episode.
Having appeared in such productions as “The Bill,” “Agatha Christie’s Poirot,” “Dexter,” “The Mentalist,” “Hustle” and “Defiance,” far be it from typecasting, Murry has played diverse range of characters.
Scheduled to return in 2018, “The Originals” is the spin-off series to “The Vampire Diaries.”
With the family gradually introduced, “The Vampire Diaries” fan base took to the Mikaelsons like a duck to water (or a vampire to blood).
In season three episode “Dangerous Liaisons,” the residents of Mystic Falls were introduced to the Mikaelson family. Mother Esther Mikaelson and her children Elijah, Klaus, Rebekah, Kol and Finn were all played by Alice Evans, Gillies, Joseph Morgan, Claire Holt, Nathaniel Buzolic and Caspar Zafer, respectively.
With an excellent casting choice, Mikael Mikaelson was played by Sebastian Roché. When Mikael finally made an appearance, it wasn’t the warm family reunion some people might have expected. The bitterness between Klaus and his father was clear.
“The Originals” is not your ordinary family show. To the Mikaelsons, family is everything. “Always and forever,” as Klaus Mikaelson often says is the Mikaelson family mantra.
After more than a thousand years, things can get bloody complicated. The direction “The Originals” storyline will go in and what connection Murry’s in coming character has with Elijah will all come clear when the show returns in 2018.
