Klaus! Elijah! Rebekah! OH MY! The Originals Season 2 is coming! (Finally!!)
While we wait eagerly for the series to return, we thought we'd take a tour through IMDB to see what The Originals cast resumes looked like before they were stars on the CW's hit.
Who made the biggest "splash" before finding their way to the bayou?
None other than BFFs Claire Holt and Phoebe Tonkin! The two starred on an Australian series called H2O: Just Add Water, a series which featured three girls who were magically transformed into mermaids.
Yes. You read that right. Claire Holt and Phoebe Tonkin were mermaids.
Daniel Gillies and Joseph Morgan had several big screen credits to their names prior to becoming TV brothers. Joseph Morgan acted alongside Jared Leto in Alexander and Daniel Gillies played an astronaut in Spider-man 2.
Then there's Gillies full-length, self-funded, self-produced feature Broken Kingdom, starring his beautiful wife.
(Gah. It isn't possible to hate that guy. He's just too perfect.)
So where will we find our favorite blood-sucking family when the show returns this fall? Why not watch The Originals online to see if you can figure it out!
And if you can't get enough of CW shows about ancient supernatural beings, here's a look back at The Vampire Diaries cast before they were stars as well ...
